What mighty Contests rise from trivial Things[...!]
—The Rape of the Lock
Ivanova: Now, you can start by helping me to understand the precise nature of the conflict between the two sides that you've set up.
Purple Drazi: *Points to green drazi* Green.
Green Drazi: *Points to purple drazi* Purple.
Ivanova: No, I understand that there are two factions, but what is your point of contention? Where do you disagree with each other?
Green Drazi: *Resigned sigh* Purple!
Purple Drazi: Green!
[T]he emperor [...] published an edict, commanding all his subjects, upon great penalties, to break the smaller end of their eggs. The people so highly resented this law, that our histories tell us, there have been six rebellions raised on that account; wherein one emperor lost his life, and another his crown. [...] It is computed that eleven thousand persons have at several times suffered death, rather than submit to break their eggs at the smaller end.
As we take the last steps to war!
Remember what the MPAA says: Horrible, deplorable violence is okay as long as you don't say any naughty woids. That's what this war is all about!
