75-000BBF50Remember, they control the defense systems. Be careful
76For what it's worth, I have every confidence in you. Higgs and Loken do not speak for all of us.
77I can understand why Higgs and Loken are frustrated. To not be consulted on a decision of that magnitude must feel like an insult.
78There's an opportunity here to demonstrate your ability to lead. I hope you'll make the most of it.
79In all my years, I've never seen anything like this. The sheer impertinence of it!
80Doctor Higgs has always been one to complain. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by this.
81It's damned selfish, that's what it is!
82I begged them to stop this nonsense before you returned, but of course they wouldn't listen.
83I'm as frustrated right now as I've ever been. I just can't believe this.
84000BA83D{Shouting through a closed door at someone} It's not too late to change your minds!
85{Shouting through a closed door at someone} No good can come of this, Lawrence. You won't win!
86{Muttering to yourself... Incredulous...} This is just unbelievable.
87{Muttering to yourself... Incredulous...} In all my years, I have never seen such nerve!
88000B887FYes, well, it seems we're at an impasse.
89I understand that they feel slighted, but it won't change anything.
