BUNNI: Corporal, I rebuild dead people. Trust me, I have seen problems like yours before.
PERI: I wasn't dead.
SCHLOCK: You were almost dead. You were making the "I'm dead" face.
SCHLOCK: So, maybe your arm thinks it came back from the dead, and you need to treat it like a new arm. Do some nice things for it.
BUNNI: Sergeant, what have we said about you and the practice of psychology?
SCHLOCK: Don't practice on real people?
BUNNI: Neeka repaired your chest wounds right down to the muscle fibers. They're not the same as they were, and they never will be.
PERI: Then it's Neeka's fault.
PERI: You grew an entirely new body for Captain Tagon, and he didn't have these problems.
BUNNI: Captain Tagon only has two arms, and his brain doesn't have quadridextrous motor control lobes.
BUNNI: Those lobes? You're letting quadridextrous crosstalk memories do the aiming for an arm whose stabilization musculature has changed.
BUNNI: You have to rethink the way you use your arms, and you need to treat that arm like...
BUNNI: ...like a new arm.
SCHLOCK: Do something nice for it.
