Tedium is such a crime. It takes the limited amount of time that is given to man, and rather than spending it in indolence or drowning it in pleasure it just sits there sucking, eating it up. I can't put up with that, tedium is a crime! Death to tedium! Die!

Oh, life is fun! Try sayin' that ten times fast ten thousand times a minute every day for the rest of your life and it'll screw with your head so bad that all problems will disappear like MAGIC! Okay okay okay, I've gotten past the sadness and as of now I'm evolving to a HIGHER STAAAATE! Right? Tell me you all think so! Life is a magnificent beast, and it excites me!

Let me show you! I REALLY don't like you! Since I don't, I'll CLOBBER you! I'm gonna beat you as much as I want to, you hear me? I'm gonna hurt you OVER AND OVER AGAIN! What's wrong with that, huh? Tell me! You can't, can you? You should be grateful! Thanks to my unbelievable attack, you don't have to offer any more of your pathetic EXCUSES!

Let me tell you an incomprehensible story! What is it for the actions of men to be incomprehensible? It would seem to me that if it can't be comprehended one should not even bother trying. It is useless to even think about it, I think. That said, I don't know exactly what's going on but may we continue fighting please?

[fighting Chane] Uh-oh! I thought you were an ordinary young lady, but I don't anymore. Isn't that a little large and bulky for a girl looking to protect herself? Oh well, that's okay. You surprised me a little and being surprised is a good thing for me, for everyone really. Being surprised reminds people that whatever lies ahead of them in life is for the most part unpredictable darkness! [attacks Chane, her knife is caught in his wrench]
GRAHAM SPECTER
Another surprise! I have this feeling that you're not Eve Genoard. And forgive me, but you don't move your body like any other amateur. And I'm actually intrigued, however, I would appreciate it if you wouldn't interrupt me while I'm speaking. [Chane stares at him]
GRAHAM SPECTER
[laughs] You're amazing! A woman that goes beyond woman, I'm starting to get excited! As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if you told me you were a Martian right now. So hurry up and grow eight arms why don't ya? If it turns out you're not human that just means you'll be more fun to break! [they break their lock, Graham knocks her down in mid-air]
GRAHAM SPECTER
Oh yeah, I'm really starting to enjoy this! It is truly, truly a pleasure. I think you should be my new best buddy. We could write an incredible story. But if not, just to be clear about it, I have to hurt you.

[challenged by Claire] How dare you suggest such a thing! There is only one other person who has ever dared to rival my certainty and that... is BOSS LADD! The absolute perfection of Boss Ladd was unwavering. For you to challenge that is far beyond your pathetic pale. Unless I knock your superiority down beneath the feet of Boss Ladd my dawn will never break! Don't you get it, I shall not see the Sun! It will remain night forever!

[to Chane] Sorry about this, young lady, but not being able to verbalize might be a lucky break for you in a way. People can waste an awful lot of energy. By putting sadness into words. Or maybe joy into words. And then of course, there's putting anger into words. And the words can double when it comes to fear or pain. In that sense, being so afraid that you can't find any words may save your life. Being unable to speak in extreme stress in a body that is obligated to control energy consumption is an act of, OH, I don't know, maybe, self defense? Oh boy, I went and said a thing of actual intelligence there. Time to show me some love, boys!
