Business opportunities, don't wait up

See if I ever try to do business with that last company again. Anyone who won't sacrifice a window to toss me out is too cheap for me.

Here's our offer, Mr. Starfall. You should find it most generous.

Generous?! This little son of a bureaucrat is trying to cheat me out of suit and ship.

I think I've finally found someone I can deal with.

You inhuman robber! You call this a counter offer?!

It's a fairer price than yours, you bloodless bean counter!

Perhaps we should meet halfway on this.

I agree.

He doesn't realize it yet, but he's already lost.

I've got his wallet.

There's nothing better than enjoying a meal bought with someone else's money.

That guy was tough to lose, especially after he figured out I had his wallet. But I know we'll meet again soon.

He never told me if I got the job or not.

I'm feeling better now. Maybe all I needed was water and some rest.

Winston was very clear on that point. Because of the amount of blood loss, I should drink water. Lots of water. Lots and lots of water.

This would be a very nice time to be on a ship with a working bathroom.

As long as Sam's owned it, this ship's never had a working bathroom. That's why I picked a hangar as close to one as I could.

But close is a relative term, and half a kilometer seems like a very long way right now.

I'm an engineer. I love high tech. Hard to believe I'm remembering fondly the times our bathroom was a nearby outhouse.

Hi Florence! I have a leash. Want to go walkies?

A LEASH!? Hmm. A leash. Doesn't Sam have an old office chair lying about?

Sometimes Helix comes up with some pretty good ideas.

This is ridiculous, having to go half a kilometer each way to get to a bathroom.

I hope I can find a contractor. With their help, I can get the ship's potable water and recycling systems running.

It's something a plumber could do, but I'll try to get a nuclear qualified structural mechanic. They charge less per hour.

Oooh. A spider.

GAAH! FLORENCE, BE CAREFUL! YOU ALMOST SQUISHED THE CUTE LITTLE SPIDER!
