    • Lab Technician: ...it has a kind of Pied Piper-ness to it with a little Chuck Heston thrown in there: 'Take that you damn, dirty virus!'
      Charlton Heston's long career enjoyed a semi-renaissance in the 60s and 70s as a post-apocalyptic b-grade action hero in such films as Planet of the Apes, The Omega Man, and Soylent Green. Each of these films wound up with some Hestonish tagline(s) associated with it, -- "Damn you! Damn you all to hell!" or "Get your hands off me you damned dirty ape!", and "Soylent Green is peeeeeople!!!". The Omega Man was about a world devastated by a man-made virus that left him as one of the few remaining humans, all others being horribly mutated. His tagline in it was something to the effect of "Take THAT you damned dirty mutant!!" with his characteristic, biblical, just-short-of over-the-top delivery Note the similarity between this one and the "dirty ape" comment.
