NARRATOR: Parnassus Dom, in the Posadh Dean Assembly Hall...
SCHLOCK: Wow, there are a lot of people here.
ENNESBY: Terrifying, isn't it?
ENNESBY: This event is huge! The number of things that can go wrong is a combinatorial function.
SCHLOCK: I don't think Petey allows combinatorials at these functions.
The snooty bartender won't do depth charges.
ENNESBY: It's Murphy's Law of Weddings, Sergeant. "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong as close to the nuptials as possible."
The food, the music, the lighting, the clothing, the guests...
ENNESBY: Even discounting enemy action, this place is a giant Murphy bomb, and we're at ground zero.
SCHLOCK: So why isn't anybody else scared?
PETEY: Is bliss.
PETEY: I'm troubleshooting on the fly. Minor problems have arisen, but they have been addressed. Nobody will notice anything went wrong.
ENNESBY: Oh, no... We're part of a perfect wedding?
SCHLOCK: Now what's wrong?
ENNESBY: The karmic debt we're accruing could destroy a planet.
SCHLOCK: Well, we're in a flying city so that's somebody else's problem.
