Oh, let me check to aide What is it? Really? OK. On phone Giant rat. Looks radioactive. That’d be great, thanks. We’ll make sure to put new missiles on when we’re done. What’s that? Really? Fine, fine. Yeah, thanks. Hangs up All right, we’re getting the X-9, but the AI driving it has a big ego and the princeps likes music.
