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


PARA: I don't get it.  Who is Nero, and what does a fiddle have to do with this fire?

TAGON: Uh...

TAGON: You said she'd get the joke.

ENNESBY: She's smart.  She really should have.

ENNESBY: Oh, good.  I'm not the only one who thought it was funny.

LIZ: Yeeeaah... I'm pretty sure you are.
