Quotes:
From "Flash Gordon: Secrets and Lies (#1.12)" (2007)
Rankol: Source water production is decreasing faster than we had predicted. We may not have enough to meet our guarantees.
Ming: Yes, I'm aware of the problem.
Rankol: Might I suggest a reduction in rations?
Ming: We will do nothing of the sort. Because if we do, then people will know there is a shortage.
Rankol: Which there is.
Ming: No, Rankol, there is no shortage - and I will see to it that there never is!
Rankol: Yes, but until our agenda succeeds, the problem of a shortfall remains!
Ming: Enough! There is no shortage, there never will be a shortage, and you mention it again and I will rip that ridiculous plate from your skull and dig out your brains until I find the part that makes you so supremely annoying! We will meet our demands.
