Listen here, pardner. I'm new around these here parts. As a humble part-time cowpoke hired on for the summer, I am ready and willin' to listen to your pointers. I know you ain't a greenhorn and can learn me real good. But I'm taking a starship off this dustbowl once the season changes. So don't get too attached, now, alrighty?
