    • Assignor: What's this? Ettil: It's called "hot dog." Assignor: How do you know? Ettil: I used to read banned literature.

    • Ettil: I'm not sure. But something's going to happen to us. Assignor: You've got a plan. Something evil and terrible? Ettil: Look, all I know is they're going to do something to us. Assignor: Let them fire their mystic facts, Vyre, facts. Ettil: But they're I sincere. I feel as if we're in a big acid vat, melting away. Assignor: Thanks for the science. All right, we'll kill every one of them. Ettil: How can you kill people who give you flowers? And call you pal, and buddy? Do you know what "hail, fellow, well met" means?

    • Ettil: We have been dropped like a shovel full of seeds into a large concrete mixer. Nothing of us will survive. We will be destroyed not by the gun, but by the glad hand.
