Ambient dialogue[edit]

Leeza: There, I fixed it. You won't be giving me any more trouble.
Leeza: Hmm, that doesn't seem right...
Genius (1): So, there we were, and all I could think to do was pull out my septipincers and latch onto its nose with them. It screamed and ran.
Genius (2): I've heard this story. It doesn't make you the foremost authority on septipincer techniques.
Genius (1): Of course it does. Apart from my years of study, I've had in-the-field experience. Do NOT discount my expertise!
Genius (1): My krewe's on the verge of a major discovery in the field of sensometric inspeculation.
Genius (2): No kidding? Mine too. Except we're doing sensometric inspeculation with a focus on fungal superbodies.
Genius (1): Really? Fungal superbodies? Interesting. Excuse me. I think I hear my lab manager calling me.
Genius (1): Did you get that "you know what" we need back at the "you know where?"
Genius (2): I can't talk about it here. I'm expecting “you know who" to come by any minute.
Genius (1): Okay. I'll be back at "you know where" doing "you know what” until "you know when."
Genius (1): I found it, the "you know what." It won't be too hard to acquire.
Genius (2): Shhhh. Keep your voice down. "You know who" could have agents anywhere. Well, where is it?
Genius (1): Not here. Meet me later, "you know where." We'll be able to talk freely then.
Local (1): I need to go to the lab today.
Local (2): Pop, you don't work at the lab anymore. Remember? You retired.
Local (1): Idiot. I go to the lab in my head. We're changing the world there.
DEL-X99: (BEEP) Target–located. Stand–by–for–message.
Krewe Member Eink: Excelsior! I love getting messages.
DEL-X99: Eink, I–saw–you–today–outside–the–lab. Please–use–more–discretion–when–testing–your–cloth–of–invisibility. Fha.
Krewe Member Eink: I guess my cloth of invisibility still needs more work. Thank goodness it wasn't cold out.
DEL-X99: (whistle)
DEL-X99: (BEEP) Target–located. Stand–by–for–message.
Krewe Member Hama: I'm all ears.
DEL-X99: Dear–Hama. I–insist–you–suspend–work–on–your–Spectragon–forthwith. The–Spectragon–was–my–idea.
DEL-X99: I–am–the–sole–inventor. You–will–never–amount–to–anything–more–than–an–assistant–to–a–true–genius. Tama
DEL-X99: Do–you–wish–to–respond?
Krewe Member Hama: Give me a moment to gather and sharpen my thoughts.
DEL-X99: (BEEP) Target–located. Stand–by–for–message.
Krewe Member Swip: A message for me? How wonderful.
DEL-X99: Dear–Swip, you–are–a–cheat–and–a–coward. I–know–it–was–you–who–stole–the–destrosphere–from–my–lab.
DEL-X99: You–cannot–thieve–your–way–to–success. Return–it–post–haste! Give–my–regards–to–your–DEL-X99. Happ
Krewe Member Swip: That jackal! How dare he impugn me with lies? I should throttle him. DEL-X99, prepare to reply.
DEL-X99: Reply–sent. That–jackal. How–dare–he–impugn–me–with–lies. I–should–throttle–him. DEL-X99–returns–regards.
DEL-X99: (BEEP) Target–located. Stand–by–for–message.
DEL-X99: Dear–Zica, your–brilliance–is–radiant–like–the–sun. Quit–that–lab. You–deserve–your–own.
DEL-X99: To–be–your–assistant–would–grant–me–everlasting–happiness. Signed: an–admirer.
Krewe Member Zica: Oh my. Who sent this message?
DEL-X99: Error. Sender–name–not–found.
Krewe Member Zica: Oh well. I don't have time for such nonsense.
Laborer (1): Looks like they filled the Muse Krewe. They hired one of my friends.
Laborer (2): I wanted a spot on that krewe, but I didn't get my name on the list early enough.
Laborer (1): When it comes to krewes like Muse, you snooze, you lose.
Laborer (2): Say that three times fast.
Laborer (1): I've heard rumors that the Inquest is recruiting.
Laborer (2): I couldn't work for them, no matter how bored or hungry. My tolerance of evil is too low.
Laborer (1): They can't be that bad. Genius turned evil is still genius.
Laborer (1): It's always the same thing. Teleportation gates, blasting rods, and golems. These geniuses have limited imagination.
Laborer (2): What are you talking about? What could be more interesting?
Laborer (1): I can't think of anything, but the krewe geniuses should. They need to dazzle me more.
Laborer (1): I'm particularly fascinated by the fact that the world's smallest sentient race is also its most intelligent
Laborer (2): What fascinates you about it? It seems fairly elementary to me. We're the top pf the evolution chain.
Laborer (2): We're what happens when you eliminate weakness and waste. We're concentrated magnificence.
Laborer (1): My son insists he wants to work at the Incinergen Labs when he gets out of school.
Laborer (2): He's just saying that to assert his independence. He'll come around.
Laborer (1): I hope not. Maybe he'd learn he should start listening to me.
Xann: Who's this worker you're dating?
Alli: He finished third in Dynamics, father. You'll like him.
Xann: Why didn't he finish first?
Alli: The Incinergen krewe had already recruited him. His priorities changed.
Xann: Hmph. His priorities changed.
Alli: He'll be here any minute, father. Please be hospitable.
Xann: Oh, I'll be very hospitable.
Crabb: Zapilicious greetings, Alli. What's cracking? You must be Papa Xann. I'm Crabb of the Incinergen krewe.
Xann: Where are you taking my daughter, Crabb?
Crabb: Sir, I thought we'd go into the city for dinner at this little human place I know.
Xann: Human food? Zapil-ick!
Alli: We'd better get going, Crabb. See you later, father.
Crabb: Keep it snapping, Papa Xann. Don't worry, I'll take good care of Alli. She's my own special phosphoradorable flower.
Xann: Oh, I'm not worried.
Xann: DOM-555i, engage. Initiate chaperone sequence.
Alli: Father!
Xann: You geniuses have a good time.
DOM-555i: Hands—where—I—can—see—them—at—all—times.
Statics Expert: I've got the first problem. Blaze contamination. How do we clean up after a spill of magical energy.
Dynamics Expert: Easy. We create negative-field golems that soak up spilled magic and then transport themselves to disposal sites.
Synergetics Expert: That won't work. Instead, we use ionomasticators that render the magic inert. Brilliant. Hold on. I need to write this down.
Dynamics Expert: I know the Eternal Alchemy requires that all things have purpose, but I fail to see it for all beings.
Statics Expert: Such as our esteemed Synergism colleague?
Dynamics Expert: Quite so.
Synergetics Expert: Surely, if we put out formidable minds to work on these problems, we can spark solutions.
Dynamics Expert: I'm willing to lend my extensive expertise in kinematic golemancy to the discussion, though I can't stay long.
Statics Expert: Brainstorming rarely solves anything. We have to build a solution from the foundation up.
Progeny (1): I heard your father made another prize-winning golem sub-harmonizer.
Progeny (2): Don't tell anyone, but I've been fixing his prototypes. He has really good ideas but is really bad at numbers.
Progeny (1): Really? You know, that could get you a spot on almost any krewe.
Progeny (2): (laughs) Oh, I don’t need a little polishing on someone else's experiment to guarantee my career.
Lab Attendant: Hello! I have an amazing opportunity that you cannot pass up. My krewe has just one slot left and–
Progeny: Get a job.
Lab Attendant: I have a job! A great job on a krewe doing ground-shaking work in golem progeneration. You get a job!
Lab Attendant (1): There's been a sighting. I saw the old genius myself.
Lab Attendant (2): You're kidding, right? He hasn't come out of his lab for years. You sure it wasn't his ghost?
Lab Attendant (1): He was definitely flesh and blood. He had some of his krewe with him too. They looked pale and tired.
Lab Apprentice (1): I don't know how you work with him. He's so incredibly old. His memory started going years ago. It has to be long gone by now.
Lab Apprentice (2): It is, so he keeps meticulous notes of everything.
Lab Apprentice (1): Everything?
Lab Apprentice (2): Everything cross-referenced. Once a week, I have to add in new content.
Peacemaker Chief Grumm: Well, that was an interesting turn of events.
Peacemaker Krabb: Interesting?
Peacemaker Chief Grumm: Yes. Let's call it an "unforeseen variable in a routine training exercise."
Peacemaker Krabb: I think you're an "unforeseen variable."
Peacemaker Chief Grumm checking out the golems
Peacemaker Chief Grumm: Ah, truly a thing of genius.
Peacemaker Chief Grumm: Excellent work!
Peacemaker Chief Grumm: Yes yes! Quite impervious.
Peacemaker Chief Grumm: The product of a genius mind.
