CDRE TAGON: Petey, here is the archive you wanted us to retrieve.

PETEY: Thank you! Just drop it anywhere.

PETEY: That does make the question of whether or not to read it a murky matter of morality and ethics.

CDRE TAGON: Your morals and ethics have always been murky.

PETEY: Indeed. And on a related note, the balance of your pay has been deposited, along with a nice bonus.
