The Transcript For This Page
In Seamus and Nicole's stateroom, Nicole meets an android ships's steward at the door. He has with him a levitating tray of covered dishes.
Steward: Room service – one piscabeef special and one crawdad tetrazini with salad.
Nicole: Yes, thank you.
Nicole, turns with the tray and begins walking back over to the bunks but is interrupted by the Steward, who has his hand out in the classic 'my tip, please' gesture.
Nicole drops a coin into the Stewards outstretched palm.
Nicole: Here y'go.
Steward: Thank you, ma'am.
Nicole transfers their meal dishes from the delivery tray to some levitating smaller trays, about the size of tv-dinner tables, placed near the lower bunk where Seamus is seated.
Nicole: That's six silgs out of my pocket so far.
Seamus: Keep track and I'll reimburse you at Helios Base.

Nicole: I wish we could eat in the restaurant. I'm getting stir-crazy in this room.
Seamus: Between the narrow corridors and all the rude stares I get, I'd rather stay here.

Nicole: You know, maybe if you moved around more, you wouldn't be so large.
As soon as the words are out of her mouth, Nicole realizes her gaffe. She looks up nervously at Seamus, who stares down at her balefully.
Nicole (small): eeep!
Seamus: If you must know, Ms. Oresme, my size has nothing to do with complacency or gluttony.
Seamus: A problem occurred during my last rejuvenation which produced an endocrine imbalance.
Seamus looks sadly down at his food. Nicole looks like she wants to cry.
Seamus: It caused me to grow 30 cm taller and 150 kilograms heavier than I should be.
Seamus: I haven't had time to have the problem fixed yet due to the Project's schedule.
Nicole walks past Seamus, red-faced, headed for the door.
Nicole: I – please excuse me.
Nicole: I need to get some air. Don't wait up.
