Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


PETEY: Your A.I., Manny, is fine. He's upset, and surprised, but I couldn't have done this without surprising him.

DEVEREAUX: Petey... This is an act of war.

PETEY: That's over your pay grade, but if you really want a war, the Plenipotent Dominion is your best possible choice of enemies.


PETEY: I went to a lot of trouble to capture a U.N.S. battleplate with zero loss of life.

DEVEREAUX: Clearly we didn't make it difficult enough for you.
