“Mats, there’s a production of one of those plays you like on tour near here, do you want to go?”
“Which play?”
Tight Androids? Something like that.”
“What language?”
“Affini. Mats, don’t growl. I checked, it’s not a Rosewood translation.”
“Julienne Margae.”
“Her Affini is garbage.”
“Mats, what’s the rule about insulting other scholars?”
“ ‘Bad pets who insult other scholars have to go to Liliac’s next party and socialize.’ ”
“I’m throwing a huge birthday party for Nerys in a few days. Are you going to come?”
“Maybe her Affini’s gotten better and I’ll like it?”
“Good boy.”

Okay, you were right, it was actually good. Not the translation, but the voicework… I didn’t expect them to do Affini with Jacobian English accents!”
Was that why I didn’t understand a word of it?”
It’s probably best that you didn’t, to be honest.”
You mean it’s even worse with the dialogue?”
I think it’s better, but Titus Andronicus really isn’t the sort of story you go for. I’m so glad you went though, you have no idea how much it means to me.”
Do you know what sort of stories I go for?”
You’re my owner, of course I do. I’ve been translating some Terran mystery novels for you. Oops! That was going to be a surprise.”
Do you like Terran mysteries?”
Not really, but you will, and I like you.”

Liliac is trying to teach Mats social skills. Also, I'm not sure that Liliac will actually be a fan of Terran mysteries, but our boy is trying and that's what counts.
