Eric: During what time is a Keidran capable of having a child?
General Alabaster: Huh?
General Alabaster: PFFF… HA! HA! HA!
General Alabaster: Is that all? Surely you could have thought up something more perverse than that? What, did you think an old Basitin like me would know nothing about mating?
Eric: So you know…?

Eric: I figured you’d think I was trying to stump you with a perverse question. So instead, I came up with a trick question!
Eric: You see, unlike Basitin, Keidran are only fertile a week after they’ve been in heat. It works that way because Keidran, unlike Basitin, use sex to get to know one another. If they are happy together, they will continue to be together even after their cycle has ended. It’s common knowledge…
Kat: Even I knew the answer!
General Alabaster: (thoughts) No! I-It can’t be! How could I not know?!
