THURL (on comm): Hello, Corporal. Is something wrong? Where's Tagon, or Shodan?
NICK: I need advice. I don't want to hurt Tagon's feelings, but this girl he likes? I'm pretty sure she's a spy.
THURL: Okay, Nick. If she's actually a spy, and you're not just seeing treasure maps in the hieroglyphs, then Tagon's feelings don't enter into it. Now... what do you think she's after?
NICK: I don't know, but once she found out I'm unarmed she--
THURL (on comm): *interrupting* Unarmed? You don't have a holdout?
NICK: "Hysterical bulkheads." Long story. Besides, Tagon didn't order me into combat. He ordered me to go on a dinner date and get a girl to like him..
THURL (on comm): I'd have disobeyed that one, but okay.
NICK: Disobey orders? Maybe you or Schlock could get away with that.
Yeah... Schlock gets away with it all the time. I wish he were here. What would Schlock do?
THURL (on comm): I don't know what Schlock would do. You just said you're unarmed.
NICK: Yeah... he'd shoot first and eat the ashes later.
But he doesn't really need his plasgun to win.
NICK: That's it! I'll just go after 'em the way Schlock would. I can get away with that, right?
THURL: Well, I guess that depends on how many of them you can eat in one sitting.
NICK: Ugh! I am not going to eat them!
Waiter: But Monsieur is going to pay for them.
