Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part I: Confidence


SORLIE: Look, here's your problem.  So far all you've shown me is a good excuse to not examine a part of this ship that is not as good as the same part we already know how to build better, and for a tenth the cost.

SORLIE: And it's mounted inside an exorbitantly expensive hull, whose materials would be much better used to build annie-plants.

ENNESBY: Are you saying my gorgeous hull should be peeled away and sold for scrap?

SORLIE: Your hull?

SCHLOCK: He stole it himself.  He really loves it a lot.
