"Then what objection could you possibly have to a security assessment for you and your family?"

"For a part time minimum wage job? Doesn't that strike you as being excessive, as well as absurd and a waste of everyone's time and energy? I also consider it an invasion of our privacy."

"I see. So you're one of those."

"One of what?"

"The type that's always yapping about their individual rights at a time when the country is under siege from terrorist threats from home as well as abroad and must be exceedingly cautious about who works where."

"I resent your characterization of me as yapping, which is in effect calling me a dog. I'm expressing myself in what is supposed to be a society in which freedom of speech is deemed an inherent right of the people."

"Keep the job, Withers. Jason, we are out of here."
