The Fly (1986)
Ronnie: Don't you get it? I am finally onto something that's big. Huge.
Stathis Borans: What? His cock?
Ronnie: Crude Stathis. Even for you.

Ronnie: If you *SAW* him, Stathis, if you saw how scared and angry and desperate he is...

[Brundle sits at a table full of junk food, and explains his altered digestive system to Veronica and her videocamera]
Seth Brundle: How does Brundlefly eat? Well, he found out the hard and painful way that he eats very much the way a fly eats. His teeth are now useless, because although he can chew up solid food, he can't digest them. Solid food hurts. So like a fly, Brundlefly breaks down solids with a corrosive enzyme, playfully called "vomit drop". He regurgitates on his food, it liquifies, and then he sucks it back up. Ready for a demonstration, kids? Here goes...
[cut to Stathis, who is watching the videotape. The sound of Seth "vomiting" is heard]

[Sound of Seth sucking back up the vomit]
Stathis Borans: [shocked and disgusted] My God!

Stathis Borans: [to Veronica] It could be contagious. It could turn into an epidemic.

Stathis Borans: [to Veronica] Don't go back to it.


The Fly II (1989)
[meeting with Stathis Borans, now a bitter, crippled recluse]
Martin Brundle: I saw you on the videotape. You were...
Stathis Borans: Don't sit there!
Martin Brundle: You were there the night my father died; he was working on a cure.
Stathis Borans: That's why you dragged yourself all the way out here? To find out about a cure?
Martin Brundle: You're my only hope.
Stathis Borans: Ah. Oh, kid, the last thing *I* am, is *anybody's* hope. You really don't want to hear about this.
Martin Brundle: I *have* to know.
Stathis Borans: Brundle stole my girl, your mother. Got her pregnant. Caused her death. Dissolved my hand and my foot with fly vomit! I had no love for the man. He "bugged" me! As for the "cure" he was working on: he dragged your mother kicking and screaming into that telepod, that they might be fused together in one beautiful body. So your mother blew his brains out with a shotgun. *There's* your *cure*. Go *away*.
Beth Logan: You bastard! Where's your compassion?
Stathis Borans: [chuckles] I had to give it up; it cost me an arm and a leg!
Martin Brundle: It cost you more than that.
