«Change of scene, King walking in his castle, Lieutenants in attentive stance»

King: Oriella was IMPOSSIBLE! So willful! Always wanting attention. Diversions. Balls, receptions, performances - BAH!
King: And then - THEN to LEAVE me?! To ride MY horse off into the unknown? Her impudence is AMAZING!

«King comes up to one of his Lieutenants»

King: YOU! You said there was a girl - a, a robot? A female construct, mechanical? By the river?
King: That tinker fellow built her, hmm? This is what you reported?

«Lieutenant nods»

King: Excellent! Bring him - and her - to me!
King: I'll wind her gears so tight she'll never be able to disobey me! The perfect wife…

«Change of scene, Hero, Voltaire and Deady talking to Kierk in Fire Town»

Hero: He must have told her what he required of her.
Hero: And then she -

Voltaire: She became the first member of the Robotic Liberation movement. You know what THIS means, right?

Kierk: *cries* My daughter is a rogue robot! I'll NEVER get her back!

Voltaire: No. It means if we don't want to terminate her, we're going to have to -

Hero: Rewind her. Remind her of the girl she's modeled after!
Hero: Only we'll have to get through the ballistics-firing, rage-grinding gears powering her.

Voltaire: And I think I know JUST how to do it. Where's that Unicorn-loving Crooner?
Voltaire: I hope he likes the color black. And fire. Deady, bring me my chalice.
