The Transcript For This Page
Boner in his chair, in an on-line video-chat session. Through the back of the holographic screen we can see six windows with small faces in them. Four of the faces are male and two are female.
Caption: Boner liked to keep in touch with his old university friends back in the Massachusetts sector.
Face 1: So Phranq, did you get your property tax bill this week?
Face 2: Oh, man, did I.
Looking past Boner at the holoscreen.
Face 2: Three thousand continentals more than last year! And I live in a shoe-box!
Face 3: Glad I'm a renter. I just have to worry about income tax. And sales tax.
Face 4: Oh, you'll just pay your landlord's tax through rent surcharges.
Medium close-up on Boner, fingertips pressed together, looking thoughtful.
Face 5 (OP): Yeah, and don't forget the Tanglenet-connection tax.
Face 6 (OP): And the excise tax on that fine Scotch yer drinkin'.
Face 1: Not to mention the tax tax. It's Taxachussets, man.
Pull back so we can see Boner and the six faces through the back of the holoscreen. Boner is suddenly looking excited.
Boner: You know what?
Boner: SCREW MASSACHUSETTS!
