1,075 - Defying Orders

February 6th, 2015

Episode 198 of 489 episodes

I order you not to listen to this episode! If you defy my orders, then I guess you’ll find out why I told you not to listen. Slow dialog: 1:26 Explanations: 3:16 Fast dialog: 15:19 Carol: Hey, where are you going? Miguel: We can’t sit here doing nothing. Carol: We have orders to stay here and to keep watch. You know as well as I do what the consequences are of defying orders. Miguel: I don’t care what kind of punishment I get. I can’t sit still and let things happen without an attempt at intervention. Carol: What are you going to do, enter the fray without a plan? Miguel: I have a plan. I’m going to stop what’s going on using whatever means necessary. Carol: By doing what? Have you thought this through? Miguel: I’ll get the lay of the land and then formulate some options. Everything will work out. Carol: And I suppose you expect me to go with you, to stick my neck out, too? Miguel: That’s up to you. I’m not twisting your arm. Carol: How do you know that if I stay here, I won’t squeal on you? Miguel: I don’t. I guess I just have to rely on your sense of honor. Carol: Oh, come on, let’s go. Miguel: You’re coming with me? Carol: Against my better judgment! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
