He won't get far.

I gave him a little going away present.

As I expected all along,

our learned chemist developed

a moral conscience,

expressing certain reservations

about our unethical experiments

in Homesville.

Poor Ryan, he's probably accessing

the files right now

on a mission to save the guinea

pigs in Pebbles Court.

(computer beeps)

Don't worry.

He's pumped full of enough A-59

to kill 20 rabid rottweilers.


He won't make it 'til morning.
