Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part I


KEVYN: What brought this on, Thurl? What's on your mind?

THURL: Scope and scale, sir.

KEVYN: Gimme the version that has more than four words in it?

THURL: Okay... When I was twenty my dreams didn't reach much further than age 45.

Now I'm thirty-hmm years past that point, and we're trying to dream about the next ten thousand years as if we'll actually be there for all of them.

KEVYN: Ten thousand? Thurl, you're not taking the long view.

THURL: Scope and scale, sir.
