Mr. Kornada begins his community service

Officer. If I don't work here, where do I go?
The other judge wants to send you to a plant that makes Chlorine Trifluoride.
Chlorine Trifluoride?
Used for cleaning vapor deposition chambers.
One chlorine atom bound to three fluorine atoms.
Four atoms? Bah. Compared to this place, how difficult can four atoms be?
