Quotes:
From "Sanctuary: Sleepers (#2.10)" (2009)
Chad Spencer: Why wait? We're here right now.
Nikola Tesla: Oh, and you think your twenty-four years experience has prepped you for ruling the earth.
Chad Spencer: What are you saying?
Nikola Tesla: I'm saying you'll blow it. You've turned what was supposed to be a symphony into rock and roll. French-Canadian rock and roll.
Chad Spencer: You know, I was hoping you'd be a little more cooperative.
Nikola Tesla: Yeah, well, life's a bitch, and then you don't die.
