      • (Edward and Kimberly examine Daniel's blood sample)
        Daniel: Quite beautiful, isn't it?... It's from the Yucatan jungle. A thousand years ago it wiped out one of the greatest civilisations in the history of the world.
        Kimberly: The Yucatan? You're suggesting this is the Mayan bacterium?
        Edward: Come on, Cassian, give us a break - the Mayan's just a myth.
        Daniel: Oh, it exists, I found it... Ten years ago, I was working with a young doctor named Rachel Roberson, we were sent to the Yucatan to find the Mayan, much to our surprise, we found it - deep in the jungle, 3 days out of Izmal, it completely destroyed a village in a matter of days. Nothing we had could stop it.

      • Daniel: The time frame from infection to death is about 48 hours. I won't go contagious. I will have hallucinations, skin rash, high fever, death is 100% certain and as far as I know, there is no known antidote.

      • Edward: Cassian looked scared, didn't he?
        Kimberly: As scared as he would allow himself to look.

      • Edward: How do you want to handle this?
        Michael: Since we don't know for sure he's involved in this, let's smoke the hive, see which bees come out.
        Edward: I hate bees - poked a stick at a beehive when I was a kid once, got stung 34 times.
        Michael: You were a dumb kid.

      • (Rachel explains the herbal cure)
        Rydell: What the hell are you talking about?!
        Rachel: Light.
        Rydell: Oh, 'light'...
        Rachel: The Mayan is darkness, the herbs will kill it and you in a matter of minutes.
        Edward: Wait a minute! What are you talking about?! This is nuts - you have to kill him to save him?!
        Rachel: The people in the Yucatan believe that no-one's ever really alive until they've died... and found a reason to live.
