    • Lochley: That will be one hundred credits.
      Gideon: You cheated.
      Lochley: Absolutely.
      Gideon: I like that.

    • Gideon: (daring Lochley to visit Down Below) I bet a hundred credits says nobody will even know who you are.
      Lochley: A hundred credits?
      Gideon: That's right. I even go along to keep an eye on things. Who knows, you might learn a thing or two.
      Lochley: Haho. Ah, mister, you got a deal.

    • Lochley: So, any further progress with the ambassador?
      Gideon: (aabout negotiations with the alien ambassador) Plato once said, that for everything that exists, there is a perfect form of it somewhere. A perfect human being, a perfect chair, a perfect stick, so that everything is a shadow of that one perfect form. Now, if we follow that train of thought, that means that somewhere in the universe there exists the perfect form of the perfect absolute and complete idiot. And he left here an hour ago.

    • Gideon: Can I smack him? Just once?
      Lochley: No.
      Gideon: I never get to have any fun.
