 "As much as I dislike having people from different quantum realities walking around in foreign spacetime continuums," admitted Vic.  "The fact that the body of OUR John Carter has been traipsing around YOUR reality for four years doesn't seem to have affected things much over there.  Yes, I think we can make room for Captain Stryker here.  Besides, your captive Romulan centurion doesn't seem to want to go back with you either.  Something about duty -- or 'mnhei'sahe' as he called it -- to never show his face in the empire again due to his dishonor at losing his charge to an enemy.  If your mission today is a success, then it will have been worth the trade and we can unravel this entire mess we're in." "As much as I dislike having people from different quantum realities walking around in foreign spacetime continuums," admitted Vic.  "The fact that the body of OUR John Carter has been traipsing around YOUR reality for four years doesn't seem to have affected things much over there.  Yes, I think we can make room for Captain Stryker here.  Besides, your captive Romulan centurion doesn't seem to want to go back with you either.  Something about duty -- or 'mnhei'sahe' as he called it -- to never show his face in the empire again due to his dishonor at losing his charge to an enemy.  If your mission today is a success, then it will have been worth the trade and we can unravel this entire mess we're in."

 "Now remember," warned Vic.  "There should be NOTHING of inorganic substance from this quantum reality with you when you leave this universe.  Tissue, flesh, food, and drink are all fine.  But, if you left anything else behind... ANYTHING bigger than a single strand of synthetic fiber from your clothes... it has the potential to become a chroniton magnet.  I don't want to be seeing you two again if we can avoid it." "Now remember," warned Vic.  "There should be NOTHING of inorganic substance from this quantum reality with you when you leave this universe.  Tissue, flesh, food, and drink are all fine.  But, if you left anything else behind...
