TAGON: Petey. I never would have agreed to take a job from you. The last time you hired us you stiffed us and left us to die.
PETEY: Would you like to know what really happened?
PETEY: Your company uncovered a dangerous secret, got caught with it, and then agreed to have your memories re-written by the U.N.S. using technology I helped to refine.
TAGON: That's not how I remember it.
PETEY: Case in point.
SCHLOCK: Sir? I remember things a little differently than you.
TAGON: Go on, Sergeant.
SCHLOCK: I remember you dying. I remember your dad and Captain Kevyn running the company. And I remember when suddenly none of that ever happened.
TAGON: The Core War, your time-clone... I was briefed on all that.
SCHLOCK: Yeah. But lots later, I remember we all had to make this awful sacrifice, and then I had to keep it a secret.
SCHLOCK: Petey's telling the truth, Captain. We all agreed to have our memories changed.
The U.N.S. was gonna torture us and kill us if we didn't.
I cheated, because I wanted to remember to kill and eat this one guy. But he had it coming.
TAGON: You think we should trust Petey, then?
SCHLOCK: I remember that he's our friend.
PETEY: I know I've hit a rough patch when a violent, amorphous sociopath is my best character reference.
TAGON: He's the only reference I'll trust. What's that say about me?
