As soon as the word got out the fix was in, man, the odds went through the roof.

That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

"We stop the stage, the bandits are waiting for the stage, and then you show up instead of the stage."

"That's pretty well-staged."

Something ought to be done about these girls that come to New York and try to go on the stage. They'd be so much better off, at home, raising families!

The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself."

They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me, then they will have my dead body. NOT MY OBEDIENCE!

So Ella now knew why she'd always obeyed, but she never stopped fighting to have things her way.

I shouldn't be alive... unless it was for a reason. I'm not crazy, Pepper. I just finally know what I have to do. And I know in my heart that it's right.

The Leith police dismisseth us,
They thought we sought to stay;
The Leith police dismisseth us,
They thought we'd stay all day.
The Leith police dismisseth us,
We both sighed sighs apiece;
And the sighs that we sighed as we said goodbye
Were the size of the Leith police.

What, are you trying to be funny? I do it because I believe in the United Nations and Southeast Asia, and - you think it's funny if your life depends on what goes through the Panama Canal? What about the English pound? I'll tell you something - as long as there's a Siberia, you'll find Lew Harper on the job.

I wanted to see exotic Vietnam... the crown jewel of Southeast Asia. I wanted to meet interesting and stimulating people of an ancient culture... and kill them. I wanted to be the first kid on my block to get a confirmed kill!

Team, this is all my fault. I was overzealous in Cairo. I let racism cloud my judgment. I was so sure the ultimate terrorist was Middle Eastern, but I didn't realize he was a goddamn Gook. I'll never be a racist again.

I used to think you were a swell guy. Well, to be honest, I thought you were an imbecile. But then I figured out you *were* a swell guy. A little slow, maybe, but a swell guy. Well, maybe you're not so slow, but you're not so swell either. And it looks like you're an imbecile after all!

Then it's straight to the orphanage with you! You'll learn a thing or two there. I certainly did. How to follow orders, how to keep to yourself.

There are patterns in everything. The color in light, the reflections in water... in math, these patterns reveal themselves in the most incredible form. It's quite beautiful.

I showed the green glass thing to mom. She thought it was a paperweight. Maybe other people don't see what we see.

Oh, and is there any question as to why that is? Let's explore that, shall we?
