Olivia Ofrenda: [reading a poem] With bony hands I hold my partner/ On soulless feet we cross the floor/ The music stops as if to answer/ An empty knocking at the door/ It seems his skin was sweet as mango/ When last I held him to my breast/ But now we dance this grim fandango/ And will four years before we rest.

The Illusive Man: [From Trailer] We're at war. No one wants to admit it but Humanity's under attack.

Jack: Mess with someone's head enough, you can turn a scared little kid into an all powerful bitch.
