    • Toffler
      • Toffler: He was licking me!
    • Hart
      • Hart: Stew a la Major Knox.
      • Hart: A little too much bourbon in his bourbon.
      • Hart: Well, isn't this civilized?
      • Hart: Funny thing: we escape the world, we come here, and then we turn right around and try to escape this place. The thing about escape though: chances are you might end up some place worse.
    • Colqhoun
      • Colqhoun: I said no food. I didn't say there was nothing to eat.
    • Colonel Ives
      • Colonel Ives: It's not courage to resist me, Boyd. It's courage to accept me.
      • Colonel Ives: [takes a big breath of smoke] You know, not too long ago I couldn't do that. Could barely take a breath without coughing up a pint of blood. Tuberculosis. That along with fierce headaches... depression... suicidal ambition. I was in pretty horrible shape. In fact I was on my way to a sanatorium to convalesce when a native scout told me a curious story. Man eats the flesh of another, he takes the other man's strength, absorbs his spirit. Well. Naturally I just had to try. Consequently I ate the scout first and you know he was absolutely right. I grew stronger. Tuberculosis? Vanished. As did the headaches and the black thoughts. I returned that spring happy. And healthy. And virile...
      • Colonel Ives: We won't kill indiscriminately. No... selectively. We don't want to break up families.
      • Colonel Ives: If you die first, I am definitely going to eat you, but the question is, if I die, what are you going to do? Bon appétit... Eat or die.
      • Colonel Ives: Of course, we've no wish to recruit everyone. We've enough mouths to feed as it is!
      • Colonel Ives: You remember this? You smell it? The scent... always jogs the memory, don't you think? Remember the energy? The potency of someone else coursing through your veins? Someone brave. You know the disappointment as it dissipates; the strength slipping from your grasp. The growing, killing need to replenish. But I don't have to remind you of that. You're feeling it right now.
      • Colonel Ives: I found your Private Reich up there... or what was left of him. You didn't finish! Well, I can't blame you; he was tough.
      • Colonel Ives: That was very... sneaky.
