PETEY: Commanders Andreyasn and Foxworthy have both agreed to the procedure.
TAGON: Good. I'm gla-- Wait, both of them?
PETEY: Yes. You and I agreed that Commander Foxworthy needed to unjustly transfer her anger, and to relapse into violent displays of it.
TAGON: Right. I mean, I knew Elf was going to hit me, but I thought that was going to bring Kevyn back around.
PETEY: After striking you, Elf immediately felt ashamed and guilty, which, when coupled with the catharsis inherent in knocking you through a wall, opened her up to an actual discussion of the matter.
This drew Commander Andreyasn in, and with their negative feelings pushed off onto you, I was able to explain things to them very rationally.
PETEY: And you were brilliant. Nobody else could have played that.
TAGON: I know my people.
And I know you're letting me think this was all my idea to begin with.
PETEY: You positively stuck that landing.
TAGON: If I let anybody else punch me we'll both know that you botched my brain surgery.
TAGON: In fact... I can't believe I let it happen even one time.
PETEY: People with normal, non-botched brains feel that way every day.
