On FRIDAYS, FCD is staffed by KHEM VAL and SCORPIO.

BABY RISHA: Hey, Iíve almost finished the stardrive engine. Andronikos, fetch me a left-handed hypertorque.
BABY RISHA: Iíll give you eleventy billion credits when Iím done.
BABY ANDRONIKOS: I donít believe you.
KHEM VAL: Do as Risha says.
BABY ANDRONIKOS: How come I have to listen to her?
KHEM VAL and SCORPIO exchange looks.
SCORPIO: You just do.
KHEM VAL: She has authority like unto Tulak Hord.
BABY ANDRONIKOS: But thatís stupid. Sheís sitting there eating out of my lunchbox and using my tools and I hate her.
SCORPIO: No education until you do what she says.
SCORPIO: No food, either.
BABY ANDRONIKOS kicks BABY RISHAís flux bottle over and stomps off.
M1-4X: Risha, I know Iím just a toy, but would you please give me my leg back?
BABY RISHA: Itís put to better use here.
M1-4X: This kind of cannibalism would never be tolerated in the Republic.
BABY ANDRONIKOS, returning and handing over a left-handed hypertorque: I bet I could make a better stardrive engine anyway.
BABY RISHA: Could not.
BABY ANDRONIKOS starts disassembling M1-4Xís other leg for parts.
BABY RISHA looks hopefully at SCORPIOís left arm.
SCORPIO: Try it and die, little one.
BABY TANNO VIK rides up on a stolen plastic tricycle.
BABY TANNO VIK: Hey there. I heard bossy manipulative thieves are actively encouraged around here.
BABY TANNO VIK: I see, I see. Can I interest you in some toy projectile weapons for the ship youíll be attaching that stardrive to?
BABY RISHA: Ooooh. Iíll buy.
BABY TANNO VIK climbs on top of M1-4X and starts unscrewing something.
M1-4X: Not the turrets! Not the turrets!
BABY RISHA: Wait. I couldíve gotten those myself. Or, more accurately, made Andronikos get those for me.
BABY TANNO VIK: But you didnít. Pay up.
BABY ANDRONIKOS. Heh. Take that.
