: For Christ's sake, Worth, what do you live for? Do you have a wife, or a girlfriend, or something? Worth
: Nope. I've gotta pretty fine collection of pornography.
: [Leaven, Kazan & Worth reaching the exit of the cube
] What are you doing? You can't quit now. It's not your fault! Worth
: I have nothing... to live for out there. Leaven
: What is out there? Worth
: Boundless human stupidity. Leaven
: I can live with that.
: Hey! Listen to what I'm saying. We haven't been moving in circles, the rooms have.
: What do ya think? Leaven
: You don't have a lot of lives left.
: Is that your two cents worth, Worth? Worth
: For what it's worth.
: I'm the poison. I designed the outer shell.
: This is an accident, a forgotten, perpetual public works project. You think anybody wants to ask questions? All they want is a clear conscience and a fat paycheck.
: What have we come to? It's so much worse than I thought. Worth
: Not really. Just more pathetic.
: Somebody has to take responsibility around here. Worth
: And that somebody has to be you? Quentin
: Not all of us have the luxury of playing nihilist. Worth
: Not all of us are conceited enough to play hero. Quentin
: [growing increasingly angry
] This is a will to live. Everybody's got it, Worth, even you. Especially you! Hiding behind that cynical front. Worth
: A will to live. That's the warm, cozy feeling deep inside? Thanks, Quentin, I'm a new man. Quentin
: Oh. Poor Worth. Nobody loves me. If that's the chip on your shoulder, why did you lug it all this way? Why didn't you just lie down and die?
[Quentin opens a new door, then turns to stare at Worth, nodding toward the opening
: Do it. Show us you have some backbone and jump in the sushi machine. Be a man.
[Worth stares steadily back, without moving. Quentin turns back to the door
: Thought so. Worth
: Fuck you, Quentin! I don't wanna die. I'm just being realistic. You think they would go to all the trouble to build this thing if we could just walk out? Quentin
: You think they would have left us clues and let us beat it so far, if there wasn't a way out? Worth
: You think we matter? We don't. Quentin
: Put us out of your misery so we can get on with getting out of here! Worth
: Oh, you're not getting out of here. Quentin
: Yes, we are. Worth
: No, you're not. Quentin
: Yes, we are! Worth
: [shouting furiously
] There is no way out of here! Quentin
: Gotcha. Holloway
] How do you know that? Quentin
: Answer the question, Worth. Holloway
: Oh, God. Quentin
: Who are you?
: It's all the same machine, right? The Pentagon, multinational corporations, the police. If you do one little job, you build a widget in Saskatoon, and the next thing you know, it's two miles under the desert, the essential component of a death machine. I was right! All along, my whole life, I knew it! I told you, Quentin. Nobody's ever going to call me paranoid again! We've gotta get out of here and blow the lid off this thing! Worth
: Holloway, you don't get it. Holloway
: Then help me, please. I need to know! Worth
: This may be hard for you to understand, but there is no conspiracy. Nobody is in charge. It, it's a headless blunder operating under the illusion of a master plan. Can you grasp that? Big Brother is not watching you.
: [after Rennes is killed
] I think we *have* to ask the big questions! What does it want? What is it thinking? Worth
: "One down, four to go."
: Why put people in it? Worth
: Because it's here. You have to use it, or you admit it's pointless. Quentin
: But it, it *is* pointless. Worth
: Quentin... that's my point.
[They are staring, wide-eyed, at each other as they begin to understand the coding
: How do you map a point that keeps moving? Worth
: [He thinks for a few moments, then:
[They stare at each other again, realizing they've made a breakthrough
: Why don't you tell us what your purpose is, Worth? Worth
: Often wondered that myself. I'm just a guy, I work in an office building doing office building stuff. I wasn't exactly bursting with joie de vivre before I got here, life just sucks in general. Holloway
: Oh I can't stand that attitude. Leaven
: 'Cos he's right.
: Is he dead? Worth
: Not quite. Quentin
: Not even close!
: Kazan! Get out through the door!
: We've been going in circles. Quentin
: That can't be. Worth
: [Quentin hauls Leaven off the ground and over to the window to the outside
] Where are we? Leaven
: I don't know. Quentin
: [roaring like a lion
] Where are we? Leaven
: *You* figure it out! You haven't done anything! All you do is freak out, you murderer!
[Leaven weeps, while Worth is oddly laughing. Quentin drops to the floor
: I guess you were right, Worth. There is no way out of here. Quentin
: [Quentin begins crying, and Kazan pats his head
] Get away from me. Worth
: [Worth has been thinking, and he gets to his feet
] Wasn't Rennes killed in that room?
[Worth re-opens the door to the darkness outside and asks:
: How come there's nothing out there? Quentin
: It's the edge. Worth
: We weren't at the edge before. Where's the room that killed Rennes? Quentin
: [flings a boot out into the darkness
] Fuck off! Worth
: Oh, that was good. Quentin
: What difference does it make? We're dead anyways. Worth
: Hey, listen to what I'm saying! There was a room there before. We haven't been moving in circles; the rooms have! Leaven
: Of course. Quentin
: Rooms...? Leaven
: That explains the thunder and the shaking. We've been shifting the whole time. Leaven
: It, it's the only logical explanation.
[she climbs up to the window into darkness next to Worth
: I'm such an idiot. Worth
: What are you on to, Leaven?
: Give me a minute. Okay. The numbers are markers; points on the map, right? Worth
: Right. Leaven
: And how do you map a point that keeps moving? Worth
: Permutations. Quentin
: Permu - what? Leaven
: Permutations. A list of all the coordinates that the room passes through. Like, a map that tells you where the room starts, how many times it moves, and where it moves to. Quentin
: The number tells you all that? Leaven
: I don't know. See, I've been looking at only one point on the map. Which is probably the starting position. All I saw was what the Cube looked like before it started to move. Quentin
: Okay, so it's moving. How do we get out? Leaven
: 27. - I know where the exit is. Quentin
: [standing up
] Where? Leaven
] Stay away from me. Worth
: Back off, Quentin! Quentin
: I just want to know. Don't you want to know? Leaven
: [to Worth
] You remember that room we passed through before? The one with the coordinate larger than 26? Worth
: What about it? Leaven
: That coordinate placed the room outside the cube. Worth
: A bridge! Leaven
: Right! But only in its original position. Quentin
: What are you talking about? Leaven
: Look. The room starts off as a bridge. And then it moves its way through the maze, which is where we ran into it. But, at some point, it must return to its original position. Worth
: So the bridge is only a bridge... Leaven
: For a short period of time. This thing is like a giant combination lock. When the rooms are in their starting position, the lock is open. But when they move out of alignment, the lock closes!
