Sam, you've made an error. You do owe Sawtooth money.

Sorry about that, it must have slipped his mind. I don't think Sam was deliberately lying to you.

She doesn't know you very well, does she?

And I hope to keep it that way as long as possible.

Okay, maybe I do owe you money, but you still can't make me pay it.

Captain, it was tight, but we had just enough to pay Sawtooth back. I've transferred the money to his account.

Sam, you've finally hired someone I actually like.

Ethics. Of all the flaws for a crew member to have, why did it have to be ethics?

Florence is so negative. She acts like debt is a bad thing.

There's an old quote. “When a man owes you a hundred dollars, you have power over him. When a man owes you a million dollars, he has power over you.”

We could set city policy.

Heck, with our debt load, we could set galactic policy.

Florence and Sawtooth are getting along well.

Yeah, he's probably telling her all about us.

Heya, Sam. I was just telling Florence about the noodle incident.

The noodle incident?

You know. The one you blamed on that spiky haired boy with the stuffed tiger.

I remember that.

Helix, Shhhh!

I can still hear the kid yelling “It wasn't me, mom! It was space aliens! Honest!”

Уж не “Кельвин и Хоббс” ли? (Robot Spike)

Okay Sam, what's the deal? Florence isn't the type who normally travels with you.

Florence is a first generation genetic prototype. Why do you think she's with us?

Oh, I get it! It's a stress test! They figure if she can handle you, she can handle anyone, right?

Sam, it's been fun saving your butt, but I've got to go.

Unlike you, I've got the pressure of keeping to a schedule.

And if I'm not back to the worksite in 30 minutes, I'll be late for my break!

Do you want anything in your coffee?

A little blood would be nice.

Blood?

I am a carnivore, after all.

We've got non-dairy creamer.

Please, Helix. Let's not be gross.

I'll be right back. I need to… uhm… use the bushes.

Ha. You should wear an environment suit like I do.

When nature calls, I can go right in my suit.

No, you can't.

That part of your suit broke when you fell down the ventilation shaft, remember?

What's the matter, boss?

I just found out why my socks feel squishy.

Hurry, Helix! While Florence is gone, we can hide this spent JATO pack!

With nothing to see, Florence has no reason to get suspicious.

Sam, why are there no tire tracks leading up to the truck?
