Book 14: Broken Wind — Part III: Exhalation and Exit Strategies


NARRATOR: Meanwhile, field surgery...

CHELLE: Is this what you needed?

TAILOR: CN11...  Perfect.

TAILOR: Off-the-shelf nanny-bags won't work on Ch'vorthq.  He's not in the library.

TAILOR: With the CN11 I can bag his brain, and then just keep spinning dials until it stops dying.

CHELLE: Dying only really stops when something is dead.

TAILOR: Death is also a cure for fatalism.  Now give me a little elbow-room.  I'm doing brain surgery.
