      • (Gi is helping Boris after getting injured)
        Wheeler: Gi, that traitor is the one that got Linka hooked!

        Linka: (extracts Bliss pills) These things killed Boris! Oh, without Bliss, I cannot stand the pain!
        (suddenly, more addicts break into their hiding place)
        Wheeler: Linka, you have to stand it! You have to use your ring NOW!
        Linka: I cannot!
        Wheeler: Concentrate! Do it for Boris!

      • Captain Planet: Lucky for you, I don't play your games, Skumm. According to my house rules, dealer always loses.
