Arkady Balagan: [hotel GM Barbara Stillwell has just left after chewing out head of security Hugo Lum] Good evening. See, Hugo, you should have been a priest, then you'd only have to kiss your boss's ring.
Hugo Lum: What the hell d'you want, Balagan?
Arkady Balagan: I have an assignment that only you can accomplish.
Hugo Lum: Ya, well I am not your errand boy, and you heard her.
Arkady Balagan: Do you do everything that your boss asks you to?
Hugo Lum: Of course not; I just pretend to.
Gurjit Bhatti: [carrying a couple of bags of fast food & soft drinks] Hugo, Hugo, the Special was on special: only $2.99.
Hugo Lum: What? Lost my appetite
[grabbing some food on his way out]
Arkady Balagan: Hugo, don't cry.
Gurjit Bhatti: Mr B, what's the matter with him?
Arkady Balagan: Interspecies communication is fraught with challenges.
Arkady Balagan: [referring to Gurjit's CV] he recites it just the way he learned it, as does everyone else. The question is: What is he hiding from?
Sam Besht: Maybe he's a spy
Arkady Balagan: What country would hire Gurjit? Absurdistan?
