Ciaphas, I want a firm commitment.
I think, um, Amberley, that, uh, we've lost touch.
Why? What's wrong?
My need to engage in avoidance behavior...on a massive scale cannot be corrected, but I have no other way to fulfill my needs. We need to talk.
Talk about what, Ciaphas?
It's over, Amberley. It's all over.
Touchy, touchy. I'm sorry I brought up the deployment. Let's just avoid the issue, all right? Now, are we having amasec?
I'm serious. It's over, us. This is no joke. Uh, I don't think we should see each other anymore.
But your friends are my friend and my friends are your friends. I really don't think it would work. You have some purity seals stuck on...
I know what your friends are my friends, and, uh...and I've thought about that. You can have them.
You're really serious, aren't you?
Yes, I am.
What about the past? Our past?
We never really shared one.
No. I'm in...I'm in touch with humanity. Amberley, I'm, uh, sorry...I just, uh...you're not terribly important to me.
Oh no! No! No, Ciaphas...
I know my behavior can be...erratic sometimes.
What do you want me to do? What is it that you want?
If you really want to do something for me, then stop making this scene right now.
Oh, Emperor, I can't believe this!
I'm leaving. I've assessed the situation, and I'm going.
Where are you going?
I'm just leaving.
I have to return some dataslates.
