  • Datak Tarr: Let us look to the future. One that would be... incomplete without the family together.
  • Christie McCawley: Our family? You mean the one you scarred and tried to drown? Are you aware of how much pain you've caused?
  • Datak Tarr: Well, it's not like I dropped a whore from the top of the Gateway Arch, now, is it?


  • Stahma Tarr: Our best hope is Rafe McCawley. He knows that woman. Knows where she might run. He'll be able to get inside her head.
  • Datak Tarr: Getting inside her head will be easier, once I've blown a large hole in it.



  • Datak Tarr: The lights are beautiful. Do you suppose they bring death?
  • Stahma Tarr: Given the evil we've done and the people we've hurt, a blow struck from the heavens is better than we might have hoped for.
  • Datak Tarr: Always the optimist.
