Book 14: Broken Wind — Part I: Breath and Business


PARA: Petey is trying to get me and everybody else to retire, but that's just another name for "house arrest."

KEVYN PRIME: Obviously that's a ploy to get all of you to do something he needs done.

PARA: Yes, but he doesn't treat you that way.  He gives you important things to work on.

KEVYN PRIME: He trusts me.  I saved the galaxy from a forty thousand-year-old plot laid by dark matter intelligences.

PARA: See, my next question was going to be "how can I get treated that way?"

KEVYN PRIME: Yup.  That would have been a good question.
