9 (I) (2009)
7: We... awakened something.
9: No, I awakened something. Something terrible.
Scientist: We had such potential. Such promise. But we squandered our gifts, our intelligence. Our blind pursuit of technology only sped us quicker to our doom. Our world is ending. But life must go on.
9: Why do you listen to 1?
5: A group must have a leader.
9: But what if he's wrong?
7: What happens next?
9: I'm not sure. But this world is ours now. It's what we make of it.
9: You're nothing but a coward.
1: How dare you challenge me? I, who kept everyone safe? Ever since you got here, things have been unraveling! You're nothing but a fool, guided by pointless queries!
9: And you are a blind man, guided by fear.
[something flies by the window, darkening it]
1: Sometimes fear is the appropriate response.
2: I don't believe it!
5: You came back!
7: I never left. You finally decided to join the fight.
1: You're just like 2! He was always probing, always asking questions! Useless!
9: I was right; you DID send 2 out to die!
1: He was old! He was WEAK!
1: When we awoke in this world, it was chaos. Man and machine attacked each other with fire and metal. I lead us here to sanctuary and here we waited out the war. Slowly, the world grew still until all that remained, was The Beast. Now we wait for it too to sleep.
9: But where did it come from? Why is it hunting us?
1: Questions like that are pointless.
6: NO! You mustn't destroy it! They're Trapped! Don't you see it? They're trapped inside! They're INSIDE!
7: [after her first attempt to destroy the Winged Beast] Let me try that again.
1: [Looking at 9, standing in front of the "Great Machine", and talks to himself about the human race] They've left us nothing. Nothing. Why do we have to right their wrongs? Sometimes one must be sacrificed.
[1 runs and pushes 9 away from the energy beams that consequently suck his soul instead]
