Flora: Everyone’s looking at us.
Keith: You guys do kinda stick out.
Flora: Hey Trace…
Flora: Have you noticed anything… strange about the women here?
Flora: Seems like every other woman we pass by is… well, pregnant.
Eric: You’re right, Flora. That’s why I don’t tend to visit the islands this time of year.
Flora: I don’t understand…
Keith: Flora, Basitins… um, we… only mate once per year. At the same time.
Flora: What?! Why?
Keith: Well, all females live together on the inside of our city. While all the males live outside the city. Living together, all our females have their cycles at the same time once per year.
Keith: So we have one week set aside for… reproduction. Outside that, it is not permitted.
Flora: That’s… horrible…
Keith: It’s not! It’s efficient and organized. And law.
