Thorn: You know, Leif . . .
This isn’t like an Embassy party, with famous people who will be mad if you don’t know their names.
Leif: It isn’t?
Thorn: No! And you’re not on duty. People won’t expect special attention from you.

Leif: Then I’ll switch to my list of polite Ceanska phrases, and work on memorizing those.
