Doug Roth (Character)
from Watchmen (2009)
Doug Roth: Mr. Veidt, to date, you're one of only two Watchmen ever to reveal their true identity to the world, the first being Hollis Mason. And you've certainly profited greatly by it turning your superhero alter ego, Ozymandias, into a billion-dollar industry: toys, lunchboxes, genetic engineering. I understand there's a movie in the works.
Adrian Veidt: I'm not hearing a question, Mr. Roth.
Doug Roth: I'm sorry. Do you think...
Adrian Veidt: The other Watchmen resent me for prostituting their struggle? It's a fair question. Yes, it's crossed my mind some of my old colleagues might see it that way, just as you're clearly aware that biased journalism sells more magazines. The merchandising arm of Veidt Industries is funding our work with Dr. Manhattan. We recently expanded our research facility in Antarctica in the hope of developing cheap, renewable sources of energy that we might eliminate the world's reliance on fossil fuels. Now, it doesn't take a political scientist to see that our Cold War with the Russians isn't ideological - it's based upon fear. Fear of not having enough. But if we make resources infinite... ah... we make war obsolete. I would hope the other Watchmen understand that. Wherever they may be. Thanks for your time.
Dan Dreiberg: You look good, Adrian.
Adrian Veidt: Dan. It's been too long. So Rorschach thinks someone's hunting the Watchmen, huh?
Dan Dreiberg: You think it's possible?
Adrian Veidt: Statistically, one murder doesn't equal a trend. Rorschach's a sociopath, Dan. And so was the Comedian. He was practically a Nazi. You know that better than anyone.
Dan Dreiberg: I'm not here because I miss him.
Adrian Veidt: It's occurred to Rorschach that we're the only ones who know each other's identities.
