- Logan Cale: Journalists who have attempted to expose him have been gunned down in the street. Their blood is the ink of our modern news. Those who've exposed him have vanished. All of that is about to change.
- Max Guevara: How'd you find me?
- Logan Cale: Wasn't hard.
- Max Guevara: Question is why?
- Logan Cale: You know who I am, where I live. I figured I'd better find out who I'm dealing with in case you were looking to hurt me.
- Max Guevara: So, you tracked me down. What do you think?
- Logan Cale: Too early to tell.
- Max Guevara: Do guys actually believe these lame self-serving excuses?
- Sketchy: Max!
- Max Guevara: Or do they think that we're just so grateful to have one of you idiots, we'll look the other way which is condescending and arrogant?
- Sketchy: Lame. Self-serving. Condescending. Guilty as charged.
- Max Guevara: You forgot arrogant.
- Max Guevara: Now, America's just another broke ex-superpower looking for a handout and wondering why.

- Max Guevara: Twelve?
- Logan Cale: I know you're one of those kids, Max.
