"Sir, Rogers tells me you've refused his request for an early retirement!"

"That's right, Frankie my boy! ... We can't afford such requests right now. Society's changing, and we at Global must lead the way. Besides, he's talented, it would be a hell of a waste!"

"You sure? He's standing in the drinking fountain, making bird noises!"

"He's just angling for that sickness pension. Pay no attention!"

"Cluck, cluck… "
