"Look, sir, he just needs a bit of help. Someone to look out for him until he finds his feet. That's all."

"And why does that need to be me again?"

"Well, you are in a pretty unique situation here."

"Don't I know it."

"You have the security clearance needed to know what he is. You can understand why he is the way he is. But due to you, um…"

"Age?"

"Well, yeah… because of that, you can actually keep tabs on him all day, when the rest of us really can't."

"Are you sure he's ready for this?"

"He's come so far, sir. I think it's the only way he'll ever really be normal."

"He will never be 'normal', Carter."

"True, but you know what I mean."

"Yeah, I do… Shit."

"Sir?"

"Oh, you know I'll do it."

"Thank you! It means a lot. To everyone. To me."

"Yeah, sure, you betcha."

"You remember the cover story?"

"Carter, please. I've been out of the game for a bit, but yes, I remember the cover story."

"Just checking, sir."

"And stop calling me that, it's creepy."

"Sorry."

"Whatever. Come on, Orlin. Let's go. Time for our first day of school."
