The Transcript For This Page
In Guy's apartment, Pierre and Guy still seated and with their drinks. Pierre is now leaning forward, elbows on knees, looking defiantly at Guy. Guy is surprised by the accusation
Guy: What's the matter?
Pierre: This is all your fault, you know.
Pierre: You know the UW is in a financial crisis – even after issuing a lot more Continentals, which should have gotten the economy going again.
Pierre presses on.
Pierre: They still found it necessary to furlough many in the bureaucracy. I lost my position in the second round of cuts.
Pierre: I don't blame you personally, but you Belters continue jacking up the prices of all the raw materials we need!
Pierre sits straight up, delivering what he thinks is a important truth. Guy looks at him blankly.
Pierre: It just isn't fair.
Pierre: The bounty of space is the common heritage of all mankind!
Same shot, not Guy is breaking out into spasms of laughter. Now Pierre looks surprised.
Guy: HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW
