Nickolai: That’s enough, Alabaster. Let the boy explain himself.
Keith: I was banished on the condition that I could return if I brought back Trace.
Keith: I have done so. You should recognize him.
Trace: Flora, get up… we’re supposed to be on our best behavior here.
Flora: Nya, my legs are tired…
General Alabaster: That is him…! But… no, it can’t be!
General Alabaster: Never in my years has anyone returned from banishment!
General Alabaster: The conditions were supposed to be impossible to accomplish! You were meant to accept your punishment with dignity and die!
General Alabaster: You were not supposed to return!
Nickolai: And yet he has. It’s out of our hands now, General. We have no choice but to grant little Keith access back into our glorious society.
Nickolai: It is law.
