Dodee: We're the only thing on air right, now--AM, FM, anywhere.
Phil: Yeah, the blackout, I know.
Dodee: No, even if that were statewide, every station our size has its own generator. So why is the whole dial still static?
Phil: I don't know. But our ratings are gonna be amazing.
Dodee: Phil, something bad is going on out there. It could be solar flares disrupting the entire grid.
Phil: Dodee! The cable's out--it doesn't mean it's the end times.
Dodee: When roving packs of mutants start swarming this place, don't say I didn't warn you.

Duke: Maybe we're being punished.
