Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


MURTAUGH: Commodore! Sorry to patch in unannounced, but Massey and I have a solution for you.

It's a short-term fix, but we know how to shift attention away from the Long Gun.

CDRE TAGON: Misdirection is out. The U.N.S. won't take credit.

MURTAUGH: You waved the wrong carrot, Commodore.

And you waved it in front of the wrong donkey.

MENENDEZ: So I'm a donkey, now?

MURTAUGH: Try thinking of donkey status as a reprieve.
