Yet another breakfast "Foreigner" tease

It has always amused me that, despite his occasional moaning about television being a bad influence on people's behaviour, Banichi apparently learned Mosphei' by watching pirated human sitcoms. And picked up other notions along with the language. I keep hoping that someday Cherryh lets him do what he proposed here because I want to see that performance. XD From "Precursor":
"It's not that far," Banichi said. "I can walk there, too, and talk to Ben."
"You've had a drink. You're not on duty. No!"
"I might have another. If I'm walking the halls, I am doubtless an inebriate having strayed from duty, and will say I require Kaplan to guide me home. Humans understand inebriation. I recall your machimi. They consider it quite amusing."
"Not when you're damned guilty and in the wrong corridor. We're not supposed to be able to open these doors."
"One would certainly have to admit to that."
