Bubblegum Crisis (1987 TV Mini-Series)
Priscilla S. Asagiri "Priss": You little idiot! If you die, what will Sylvie have died for?
Largo: Dead, eh? Or rather, I imagine it would be more exact to say it has ceased functioning. It IS a machine after all.
Priscilla S. Asagiri "Priss": You bastard!
Largo: [catching the spike] Is this all your anger amounts to?
Largo: Human beings... how vulgar. For the crime of injuring me, a god, I demand, as atonement, death!
Lisa Vanette: Do you know about the Knight Sabers?
Sylia Stingray: Uh-huh, I've heard about them.
Lisa Vanette: Why do you suppose they fight boomers? I hear they take their clients for lots of money, but... I wonder... if they're supposed to be the good guys.
Sylia Stingray: What do you think?
Lisa Vanette: I don't know... But fighting boomers means taking on Genom, doesn't it? For a mere four people to take on such a large corporation is just... well... Genom makes a lot of things that make wars possible. But they also make boomers that are useful to society. And if the Knight Sabers actually defeated Genom, the world woudl come to a halt. What I want to know is, just what are the Knight Sabers trying to accomplish?
Sylia Stingray: Well... what do you think would happen if Genom were to take over the world?
Lisa Vanette: I guess the cities would be wall-to-wall boomers.
Sylia Stingray: In which case, there'd be no place for we humans, right? For every good thing Genom does for the world, it also does something bad. I don't think the Knight Sabers could keep fighting if they only did nice, clean jobs. The development of boomers for military applications also led to boomers that were useful to society. I think the world would be thrown into chaos if this balance wasn't carefully mantained. Maybe the Knight Sabers are a part of that balance. To continue such activities would require a great deal of money, too... or so I would imagine.
Priscilla S. Asagiri "Priss": You'd better work out, or you won't be able to fit in your suit.
Nene Romanova: Ha! I contribute to the Knight Sabers with my good looks and amazing brain. I never want to be such an ape woman like you are. Besides, if you really are as hot as you say you are then how come I had to give you a speeding ticket?
