Cally: My people have a saying, "A man who trusts can never be betrayed, only mistaken."
Avon: The life expectancy must be fairly short among your people.
Kendall: [Putting neutrotope in the box] Yes, it's enough to tempt anyone. There are men who would betray their companions for a lot less.
Kerr Avon: [Appearing in doorway] What a very cynical thought, Doctor.
Cally: Remember that Avon and I will be staying. We will regard ourselves as hostages against Blake's return.
Kerr Avon: Well thank you Cally, what a clever idea.
Cally: [telepathically] Blake will return.
Kerr Avon: You can bet your life on it, in fact you've just bet both our lives on it.
Cally: We must help these people.
[She and Avon hand their teleport bracelets to Blake]
Kerr Avon: Must we? Personally, I don't care if their whole planet turns into a mushroom.
Vila Restal: [Entering with Blake] Where are Cally and Avon?
Roj Blake: It's a long story.
Vila Restal: Well, what's in the box?
Roj Blake: It's an even longer story.
Vila Restal: I like stories!
Avon: It is frequently easier to be honest when you have nothing to lose.
Zen: In one point zero three minutes, it will no longer be possible to operate force wall and main drive simultaneously. Please decide which to close down.
Jenna Stannis: Without main drive we'll never get out of this.
Vila Restal: Without the force wall we'll be smashed to pieces!
Roj Blake: Have the locators detected the outer edge of the storm yet?
Vila Restal: [looks at his panel] No. Yes! No... Maybe.
Roj Blake: Which is it, Vila?
Vila Restal: [looks again] It's "Maybe."
Zen: Directive is now required.
Vila Restal: [to Jenna] I don't think I feel very well.
Olag Gan: [retrieving the neutrotope box from the floor] I hope nothing's been broken.
Roj Blake: So do I.
[Blake keys the combination and opens the box. It's empty]
Roj Blake: It's still on the Ortega! We've got to get back to them!
Vila Restal: [to a stunned Jenna] Now I *know* I don't feel very well.
