Book 14: Broken Wind — Part II: Can Full of Sky


MURTAUGH: I served on this ship for six years, Captain.  I know her inside and out.  Perhaps I can be of some service to you.

TAGON: Are you enlisting, or just begging a billet?

MURTAUGH: Is that an NCO offer, or just the promise of a bed?

TAGON: Can I trust you with either?

MURTAUGH: No, but I'll outperform everybody wherever you put me.

GEN. TAGON: Hullnuts.  I came in at "bed" and missed all the juicy bits.
