Another favourite "Foreigner" moment

I'd love to see a copy of the Guild etiquette rules. From "Inheritor":
"Jago believes she saved my life," Banichi said. "And will not decently forget it."
"Is that it?" Bren asked. "I at least am grateful, Jago-ji, that you saved his life. I would have been very sad if you hadn't."
"I did raise that point," Jago said, still straight-faced. "He of course was in no danger."
"None," Banichi said with an airy wave.
"Guild etiquette does not permit me to state he is a fool, Bren-ji, but he risked himself attempting to preempt me in a position of better vantage. --And I did not require help, nandi!"
