When Proteus asks when he's going to pay off the money he owes him, he says he'll treat him to a nice dinner. He's already skipped work to prepare the dinner for him. He says he doesn't have time to worry about his mission at the moment, but he does worry about the two side missions. They don't really have the desire to save themselves. The factory guards are not that big of a deal, but they're all "sluggards" . They can't use fake money to buy themselves a meal. They have to leave the factory, he tells them. They're just ignorant brats.
