We live in a new room. It has a playlist of one song. It never stops. We're also talking about Kislev's strength-based merit system, meeting a new candidate for Best Doctor, receiving advice from a toilet nun, interpreting Kislev's iconography, sending Rico's brain to hell, shutting Hammer up, jumping on a moving train without committing suicide, and being amused by Fei's resolve to "just go wild." Fei denies he cares about Rico but due to classic male insecurity he cannot admit he cares about Rico. Just like me.
