[Screened calls go straight to voicemail, where an impatient recording answers]

You've reached Dr. Hermann Gottlieb. Leave your name, number, and business if you expect a return call. Thank you.

[Alternatively, you may hear the following in a much sharper tone that's meant for someone else entirely]

Newton, for the love of God, stop leaving pointless messages!

Hermann, what are you doing?

Calendar Man claims you're helping him with a project.

He's a supervillain, Hermann. Gimmicky and barely competent, maybe, but surely you recall his last "project." It involved a fifteen-foot-tall undead president and stealing the Declaration of Independence.

Did you really need his help with this?

[The way he phrased that...] So was it your idea or his? What's he getting out of it?

superposition: ((talk to me))
[just... rubbing his temples over here.] You're missing the point, Hermann. The project itself is a fine idea, I have no objection to that. It's the part about fraternizing with villains. Trust me, that rarely ends well.

superposition: (What difference does it make?)
[Meanwhile Qubit's starting to sound exasperated - he still feels like they're talking at cross purposes, and it's an issue he has Strong Opinions about.]

Now when did I say you were? That's not the issue, Hermann, it's the principle of the thing! Maybe this project will be innocuous, but what about the next one? The point is you can't trust these people.

[It's a good thing they both know that's an empty threat haha...]

Not your next project, his. [An irritated sigh.] You really don't see anything wrong with associating yourself with his kind of people?

Aw! And here I thought your first foray into supervillainy would be with me! I'm hurt, dude. I was going to pop your cherry.

...jokes aside, are we getting booted off supersquad?
