Quandary Resolution 2369
reticent, lozenge, unctuous, imbroglio
After sucking on the scopolamine lozenge for ten minutes, Mudd, usually very reticent when it came to discussing his criminal past, became unstoppably talkative and Officer Phillips learned, among many other things, that the scars on Mudd's hands and face were the result of an imbroglio between the prison guards and the residents of Cell Block 4 in 1983, a notorious incident that turned out to have been precipitated when one of the guards slipped on a bar of soap, still unctuous from the shower, that Mudd himself had thrown into the hallway.
