Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part I


NARRATOR: The Officer's Mess aboard Broken Wind...

CH'VORTHQ: This meal is about diplomacy.  We must set the table in consideration of relative eye-levels.

NICK: 'Kay.  If we push that long table against the rail, the floaters can dangle their eaty-parts down below, and their faces will still be up here with everybody else.

CH'VORTHQ: Excellent idea, Corporal Nicholson.

CH'VORTHQ: Now, you will remain in the kitchen for the rest of the evening, where words like "floater" and "eaty-parts" cannot accidently start a war.

NICK: I thought the floaters were on our side.

CH'VORTHQ: Yes.  Let's keep it that way.  Kitchen.
