    • QUOTES (6)

      • Wheeler: Why is it when the city under siege by zombies, you can never find a cop?

      • Ma-Ti: Wheeler, who is this man? He looks sad.
        Wheeler: That's President Lincoln. Long ago, he freed the slaves and paid with his life.
        Ma-Ti: Then maybe he is sad, seeing his people now enslaved by drugs.

      • (Gi is helping Boris after getting injured)
        Wheeler: Gi, that traitor is the one that got Linka hooked!
        Gi: The drug made him do it.
        Wheeler: Oh yeah? Well, nobody made him TAKE the drug. He did that to himself!

      • (Linka, recovering from the Bliss, is still in tears after Boris' death)
        Wheeler: It's okay to cry. They say withdrawal is the worst kind of pain.
        Linka: Nyet, it is not as bad as losing Boris.

      • (Boris faints, out of energy)
        Linka: Boris? Boris! What is wrong?!
        (Gi checks Boris for a pulse, but frowns in sorrow)
        Gi: The Bliss killed him. I'm sorry.
        Linka: No. You are lying! Boris! It's me, Linka! WAKE UP!
        Wheeler: Linka, he's dead.
        Linka: No. No! NO!
        (she starts to cry on Wheeler's shoulder)
        Linka: Oh, Wheeler!
        (her tears soon turn to anger)
        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.
