Elliot Moore:
[shots are heard firing in the distance] Oh no...

Alma Moore:
What "oh no"?

Elliot Moore:
The toxin? The toxin's affecting them?

Woman in Group:
Are those people killing themselves?

Realtor:
You were with the Private, what do we do?

Alma Moore:
We need to do something!

Elliot Moore:
Just let me think...

Alma Moore:
[as shots continually fire in the background] They're dying!

Elliot Moore:
I need a second...

Realtor:
They released it? We're not near the roads!

Alma Moore:
We can't just stand here as uninvolved observers!

Elliot Moore:
I need a second okay? Just give me a second!

Alma Moore:
We're not gonna be one of those assholes on the news who watches a crime happen and not do something! We're not assholes!

Elliot Moore:
Just a second!

Woman in Group:
There were children in that group!

Alma Moore:
Elliot please tell us what to do!

Elliot Moore:
I need a second okay? Why can't anybody give me a goddamn second? [talks to himself] All right, be scientific, douchebag. Identify the... rules... design the experiment... careful observation, measurements, that's what I'm trying to do, interpret the experimental pattern, interpret... What if it is the plants? That group was larger than ours. This thing's been escalating all day. Smaller and smaller populations have been setting this off. They react to human stimulus. Maybe people are setting off the plants?

Alma Moore:
What are you saying? That guy was crazy! We have to save them!

Elliot Moore:
They're already dead! What if they're targeting us as threats? This part of the field may not have been set off. Something in this field could be releasing the chemical into the air when there's too many of us together. Let's just stay ahead of the wind!
