Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part IV: Mallcop Command


NICK: See how happy you made him?  He got his curse-breaking kiss from a beautiful human girl, and all is well in his world.

LEGS: We need to tell him the truth.  That girl, she's the enemy.

SHODAN: Who's the enemy?  Have we learned something?

ANDY: Oh, hello, Commander.

LEGS: The girl who tripped me up?  She's also the one who shut down the cameras.  And now she's making a move on Nick.

BUNNIGUS: Somebody's making a move on Nick?  Has he gotten his magic, curse-breaking kiss yet?

SHODAN: I've been meaning to talk to you about that, Doctor.  Are you sure you should be encouraging superstitious behavior?

LEGS: Yes, he got kissed.  Yes, it was magic.  No, we should not be encouraging this.

BUNNIGUS: Giving Nick a way to break his curse was your idea, Corporal.

LEGS: And your idea was to send him careening through the locals instead of kissing him yourself, Doctor.

BUNNIGUS: Kissing him myself would have set a bad precedent.

LEGS: And pushing Nick into the ample bosom of the enemy sets a good precedent?

CAPTAIN TAGON: Our enemy has an ample bosom?

LEGS: She's human.  All your females are amply bosomed.
