      Peter Jackson: You can't be serious.
      Collie Entragian: You have the right to remain silent. If you choose to not be silent, everything you say can be held against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. I am going to kill you. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand your rights as I explained them to you? (Peter and Mary are confused and don't know what to say) Do you understand your rights?
      Peter Jackson: (to Mary, whispering) Just... Act normally, I don't think he understands what he just said.
      Collie Entragian: (shouting) Do you understand your rights? Do you or not? Answer me, you smart-aleck blue state unisex swingles! Do you or not? Do you or not?
