    Pita : The gunshot holds no fear.

    Creasy : You welcome the sound. In fact it's the sound that sets you free. You are a prisoner on this block until that sound sets you free.

  • Creasy : I am going to ask questions. If you don't answer fully and truthfully, you will suffer much more than you have to. I'm going to cut your fingers off. One by one, if I have to.
