I recall the few times I got fed up with jobs. being overly polite, I always gave notice, but like Emily, I stopped caring about guff.

    “Reason for leaving your last position?”

    “I arranged to have my boss killed.”

    “…Thank you, we’ll let you know…”

    “I’ll follow up if I don’t hear from you.”

    It’s interesting to see the spy game played out like that. “You want this one, it isn’t a secure line.” “Oh, you’re right, thanks.”

    It’s nice how Emily and King are so in sync here. King’s being fatalistic and depressive, so Emily deliberately pushes a button or two with her own depression, just so King will get a little more in character, with a bit more joie de vivre. And shouting always gets the ichor up.

    Throw the dice, pull the trigger, march the 13th Legion across the ford of the Rubicon and into Italy, toss the pebble down the unstable slope — set in motion ungovernable and unpredictable forces, without hope of recall or correction. You never get the result you planned. The real question is whether you are prepared to accept the consequences you get.
