Alex Gardner: Nice place you got here. Who's your decorator? Darth Vader?
Alex Gardner: You had Tommy Ray kill that woman in the dream link, didn't you?
Bob Blair: Yes.
Alex Gardner: Why?
Bob Blair: I wanted to see if it could be done.
Alex Gardner: You're a real humanitarian, Blair.
Bob Blair: I'm a realist. We live in a dangerous, hostile world. I will do whatever I have to to keep this country safe.
Alex Gardner: Yeah, that's what scares me.
Bob Blair: You're a very intelligent young man, Alex. You've mastered an amazing technique. Surely you can see the possibilities. During his dream link with Matusik, Tommy Ray stabbed her with a knife. A dream knife. The shock to Matusik's system caused a coronary and she died. So, the old wives tale comes true after all. When you dream that you die, you die in life at the very same instant. Now we can go into an enemy's dream, kill him, make it look as if he died in his sleep. Do you realize what that means?
Alex Gardner: It means no one's safe from you.
Bob Blair: The question is whether you're gonna cooperate. I never had any doubts about Tommy Ray.
Alex Gardner: Well, why should you? He killed his own father. He's a fucking psychopath.
Bob Blair: Alex, it's very simple. Either you work for me or you die.
Bob Blair: [opens the elevator door to find Alex there] How did you get in here?
Alex Gardner: It was easy!
[Rips his own head in two to reveal a monster inside that bites Blair's head off]
Alex Gardner: [talking about his current lifestyle] Sounds like you disapprove.
Doctor Paul Novotny: You're damn right I disapprove! You've got tremendous gifts, and you've chosen to piss them all away.
Tommy Ray Glatman: In this world, Alex, you're nothing. And me, I'm God.
Tommy Ray Glatman: [Alex turns into Tommy's father] Daddy? Daddy, I'm sorry!
Tommy Ray Glatman: Help me, Help me! There he is! He's the one who pushed the button. He did this to you!
Tommy Ray Glatman: He did this to you! He did this to you!
Jane DeVries: Well, one of our areas of research is sexual dysfunction. If a man is experiencing impotency, we can determine whether the cause is physical or psychological by monitoring his sleep.
Alex Gardner: Mm-hmm. How's that?
Jane DeVries: Well, if it isn't physical, he'll experience three or four erections during the course of the night.
Alex Gardner: Mm, I see. So, Jane, what you do here, in effect, is count boners.
Doctor Paul Novotny: How did you sleep? Have any dreams?
Alex Gardner: You mind if take a leak before I give my deposition?
Doctor Paul Novotny: Bill Hardy has been a good test subject for us before.
Alex Gardner: Oh, he's a steel worker. I'll probably wind up in some bad beer commercial.
