Assassin: We shall strike like the subtle hand of doom, leaving nothing but weeping in our wake.] For you see - we are The Night!
Lord Havelock Vetinari: You are? I thought you were the Assassins' Guild.
Assassin: Ah - well, we are the Assassins' Guild, but we are also...The Night!
Vetinari: So, in fact, you're that period of the diurnal rhythm defined by darkness, are you? So, nighttime thefts, muggings, murders and overnight cart parking in restricted zones...we can just start billing the Assassins' Guild directly, can we? No more fussing about with tax collectors and fines...
Assassin: Er...wh..what! B-but, just because we are the Night, doesn't mean that we're responsible for the night!
Vetinari: Well if you are it, then you have to control it. And if you control it, then you're responsible for it. This seems eminently sensible. I have a few thousand unpaid bills we can send your way by tomorrow.
Assassin: Er. No, no, no, no - now look! All right. Um - we aren't are the night, but we are of the night... OF! So we... we are an integral part of the night, without assuming any controlling or otherwise responsible position. So whereas we can assume custodianship of unpaid bills, this will only be as a... a...a storage facility - a favour to you, my lord, until we find someone who utterly encompasses all aspects of the night, whereupon we can pass the bills on to him!
Vetinari: Oh, very well...so in the meantime, just get on with this new job.
