ALICE: It’s been a week and we still can’t find her.
BOSS: This is unacceptable! I want this woman found, immediately!
ALICE: It’s going to be hard to do, Boss. Our campus has miles of human-sized ventilation shafts. we don’t have the personnel we need to search them all simultaneously.

BOSS: It is both unnecessary and wasteful. However, the “Overlord Achilles Heel Act” of 1953 requires that an complex run by an evil megalomaniac must contain at least one design flaw.
ALICE: I see.
BOSS: I decided this was safer than installing a shiny red self destruct button.
