Det. Samuel 'George' Francisco: You humans are very curious to us. You invite us to live among you in an atmosphere of equality that we've never known before. You give us ownership of our own lives for the first time and you ask no more of us than you do of yourselves. I hope you understand how special your world is, how unique a people you humans are. Which is why it is all the more painful and confusing to us that so few of you seem capable of living up to the ideals you set for yourselves.

Det. Samuel 'George' Francisco: The drug is called ja-bru-kha. It is a potent narcotic!

Det. Sgt. Matthew Sykes: You? You were on this shit?
Det. Samuel 'George' Francisco: Yes! We all were! We were engineered as slave laborers. It was our only means of pleasure allowed!

Det. Sgt. Matthew Sykes: Ok. You know, it was simple... I mean, all you had to do is tell me. I mean, why couldn't you let me know?
