NANDI: It was the dulcimer
MAL: The dulcimer drove you out of Sihnon. What, did you kill a dulcimer in a terrible passion?
NANDI: Actually, yes.
MAL: And now that dulcimer’s family is out to get even. I get it.
NANDI: I was at practice. You never stop practicing, you know, not a true companion. Some baroque piece, and the instructor keeps saying “You’re playing it, not feeling it”. And the fifth time he said it I took the damn thing and smashed it into kindling.
