      • (Edward and Kimberly want to know what The Dawn is)
        Daniel: Nothing I tell you will be true.
        Edward: Tell us anyway.
        Daniel: You want me to tell you a lie?
        Edward: Amuse me.
        Daniel: Alright... Imagine, in the world, a secret international organisation, it's leaders are in positions of vast power, the top scientists of the medical elite. Now, imagine that this organisation has one goal - the total extinction of the Human race.
        Edward: Oh, come on, give me a break, Cassian. Why would anyone in the medical community want that?
        Michael: Think about it - wouldn't the world be a better place without us? Aren't we the most lethal virus in all of history? Intelligent, yet destroying our host?
        Daniel: Now, imagine that this organisation, with all of it's vast, vast biological resources has established a timetable - the day that Humanity will end will be called... The Dawn.
        Kimberly: That's completely insane.
        Daniel: Well, of course it is, fortunately for us, none of it is true.
        Edward: Then what is The Dawn?
        Daniel: You go home and look out your window. You'll see it tomorrow morning at 5:56am.

      • (Edward finds Cassian too secretive)
        Edward: If we're gonna work together, there's gotta be trust.
        Cassian: I trust you completely!

      • Edward: (initial voiceover) Under special mandate from the White House, a secret bio-crisis team has been formed. The assignment: to fight microscopic enemies in zones that are burning, to enter places no-one else would go – on the front lines of the plague wars, we are the point of the spear.

      • (After entering a circular anti-eavesdropping area, there's a blue flash as it activates)
        Edward: What's it do? Electrocute us if we misdiagnose a patient?

      • (After a war of words with the new director…)
        Edward: I don't like you.
        Daniel: Awww… you hardly know me.

      • (After Kimberly explains the pathology findings on the victims)
        Edward: So before they died, they went frickin' nuts?

      • Edward: So why do we get all the groovy assignments?
        Daniel: Because you're young, brilliant and expendable.
        Edward: That's good stuff, Doctor, did you think that up all by yourself?

      • (Cassian confronts the head of the committee, eventually accusing him of being the supposed dead Dr Wilson Pride)
        Cassian: A bit of trivia: during the cold war, Soviet spies were indistinguishable from normal Americans… except for one article of clothing – their shoes – all of which were made, strangely enough, at the same factory in Eastern Europe, the same factory where this shoe was made.
        Pride: I don't understand…
        Cassian: Of course… I believe Dr Pride made a deal to sell his new chemical warfare agent to the Soviets – the night of the transaction, something went wrong, he killed their representative. In desperation, he hid everything in a secret tunnel room and escaped. He approached his handlers at the CIA, and told them he was in danger. Because of his value to our government, he was given a new identity, he was able to continue his research and his life. Everything remained safely hidden… until someone decided to build a tower.

      • (Cassian threatens to expose Pride with DNA from the skeletal foot)
        Pride: You… are a very dangerous man.
        Cassian: You cannot begin to conceive how dangerous.
        Pride: What do you want from me?
        Cassian: A small favour… your personal access code to the global database known as the Dawn.
        Pride: That is … impossible!
        Cassian: This is not a negotiation. I'll give you till 3 o'clock this afternoon.
        (Cassian leaves but moments later hears a gunshot)
