      • Mr. Richfield: That's an awful lot of land you just got for yourself there. Have you thought about how you might rape and denude it?
        Earl: Rape and denude it, sir?
        Mr. Richfield: Forgive me... (coughs) industry jargon. I meant develop it for the public good.

      • Earl: Nothing drives down the value of real estate like humans.

      • Earl: Oh, I don't know sir. In the past, you've used and degraded me in cruel and sadistic ways. So when you suggest you know what's best for the land I discovered I can't help but suspect you're trying to manipulate me.
        Mr. Richfield: Hmm. Have I mentioned we're gonna call it Sinclair City?
        Earl: Start paving bud.

      • Thighs of Thunder: When I was small, my parents brought me out here, we were very happy, but soon, I am all alone.
