NARRATOR: Jumpstar Prime, Fabber Control...
PARA: It won't compile.
There are millions of linkage failures, and the fabber is throwing so many "Bad GET-REF" alerts I feel like I should apologize to it.
ELF: You should.
I told you not to tweak the design.
PARA: I didn't. I wasn't given a design. I was given a stack of specs that won't compile.
ELF: Let me have a go at it. Fabbers are tetchy.
That means they require an explicit instruction set, right?
ELF: It means... hmph.
ELF: This isn't a valid design library. It's just a stack of specs.
PARA: Big room.
I hear an echo.
ELF: This has to be a mistake. Did Captain Tagon send this?
PARA: No, it came from your boyfriend the Mad Scientist.
ELF: The Captain Mad Scientist. I'll thank you to show a bit more respect, Corporal.
PARA: It's hard to respect this slop he sent us.
ELF: Then do the hard thing, Corporal.
Show respect regardless of circumstance.
PARA: Yes Commander. My bad. Won't happen again.
ELF: Good. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to call my boyfriend and have a word with him about this slop he sent us.
