Ask Not

SHERIFF: Nasedo. Yeah. He, um, he was killed last night, by another alien.

KYLE: My strength fails. My vitality exhausted. I cannot find the bull. I only hear the locusts chirring through the night.


SHERIFF: I mean, after all, Max Evans did save your life.

KYLE: Damn human of him. Of course, he is the reason I got shot in the first place, but what the hell. No conditions are permanent. No conditions are reliable. Nothing is self.

Baby, It's You

ISABEL: Have I mentioned that I hate my brother?

KYLE: We can blow him up.

ISABEL: You really have a sick little mind, don't you?
