According to tradition, the best man at a wedding is supposed to be the groom's closest male friend, or else his brother. The position, from what Gordon remembers from the anthro types he hung out with at MIT, is a relic of medieval European weddings that might not always have been approved of by the bride's family. The best man's supposed to be keeping an eye out for anyone who might show up to forcibly disagree with the bride's part in affairs.

Gordon's brother's been dead for years, and his closest male friend is Barney Calhoun, who's already agreed to perform the wedding. Dr. Kleiner's too prone to bursting into sentimental tears for the part, and he's serving a parental position for the duration of the ceremony anyway. That leaves only two real possibilities, and try though he might Gordon can't tell the Vortigaunt who helped him get the stuff they needed to save Alyx's life apart from the others on sight, so he's going to go look for the human one.

"Dr. Magnusson?"

"Hmmm?"

"Have you seen where Sergeant-Major Shephard went this morning?"
