"You seem to know your way around, Madame President."

"As President, I should know my way around the fleet's sole military vessel. Plus, I wouldn't want you to feel like a tour guide."

"I don't-"

"It's okay, Commander. I understand."

"I don't mind, really."

"Why?"

"This is one of the more pleasant parts of my day."

"Really?"

"Really."

"Mine too."

"We're pretty pathetic, aren't we?"

"And incredibly busy."

"Where you headed?"

"I have an appointment with Dr. Cottle."

"For your allergies?"

"Yes."

"When you want to tell me the truth, I'm ready."

"What?"

"The Leoben I killed had allergies too."
