How dare you! How dare you suggest I would neglect a patient because you wouldn't do what somebody else wanted! Listen to me, Lemuel, and you'd better remember it. I do not know what kind of society you come from, although I can make some guesses. But you are on Earth and this is a hospital. Maion will get the best treatment we can possibly provide. No reservations, no exceptions. When you suggest we might do anything else, you insult me, you insult the people who are working here all night to look after her, you insult the three nurses who risked their lives to make sure she got here safely. You insult a group of Irish doctors who are coming thousands of miles on the off-chance that their skills and experience will help Maion fly again. *takes a deep breath* That Colonel out there, Colonel Paschal, yes, he will want you to do things. Give us information, provide us with data. Probably more. And he will offer you deals and put other kinds of pressure on you. But if he walks into this ward and tells us to stop work, we'll kick his ass out of here. Or, if he talks to that nurse there, Colonel or not, if he makes the same suggestion to her, she'll probably head-butt him. Now do we understand each other?
—Dr. Zinder, The Salvation War
