Birch: Juniper! There’s been a cave-in at Juniper Mining — no relation — and I can’t get ahold of Annie! I know we’re not technically married yet, but I need some spousal-emergency time off!
Juniper: You stay right here, Birch. That site is about to become total chaos. And I’m sure they aren’t prepared to feed and shelter a crowd of terrified loved ones — not to mention press.
There’s going to be an organized relief effort, and they’ll need security. Let’s have Thorn try to get you assigned to that, okay?
Elisa: Manager! There’s been a cave-in at a Ceanska mine, where my father was consulting, and I can’t reach him! I know I can’t afford a vacation, but . . .
Ludolf: You stay right here, Elisa. You’re right. You can’t afford it.
I’m sure your father will rent you for a visit — assuming he survives. Dinner hour is almost over, and the dishes will need cleaning. Get back to that.
