Lexx: The Dark Zone Stories (1996– )
Kai: I have killed mothers with their babies. I have killed great philosophers; proud young warriors and revolutionaries. I have killed the evil, the good, the intelligent, the weak... and the beautiful.
[falls off pipe, spins on rotary thing, bounces off wall]
[part falls off]
Bug-Bomb: Bug-bomb lost head!
Kai: His Shadow!
His Divine Shadow: His Divine Shadow. Yes.
Kai: The Brunnen-G will defeat you!
His Divine Shadow: I did not think so. The power of order has destroyed your planet. The power of order will destroy you. And you are the last of the Brunnen-G left alive.
Kai: The Time Prophet has seen your order destroyed by the Brunnen-G.
His Divine Shadow: The Time Prophet's vision appears to be flawed.
[Stabs Kai in the chest with a dagger]
His Divine Shadow: [an officer steps forward as His Shadow looks to him]
Foreshadow Officer: We will incinerate the carcass.
His Divine Shadow: No. This last specimen of the now extinct culture of romantic dreamers merits punishment beyond death. Transport him to the bio-scholars.
Kai: In the light universe, I have been darkness. Perhaps in the dark zone I will be light.
Kai: Would you care to join me in watching the supernova? It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Thodin: My life means nothing in the great equation. Beauty such as yours must live on.
Kai: Are there other heretics with you?
Zev: Lots. They are coming up here now and they are heavily armed.
Kai: No. You are alone.
Stanley: [falls to his knees] We worship his divine Shadow and beg his forgiveness.
Zev: Don't Stan. Die with some dignity.
Stanley: [Gets up] I the, arch heretic, am reformer Stanley Tweedle. And though only an assistant deputy and back up courier, I did everything I could, I really tried!
Thodin: Remember Erika? The only reason millions, MILLIONS died for that overheated rock was because two Erikans were bio-code specialists for the Cluster. We fought that war, traitor, so I could be here today.
Thodin: They died, so I could have the key to the Lexx.
