NARRATOR: Medical Wing, Level 2...
Gav 2: Why do you have us out in the open like this? Shouldn't we be hiding in an office, or one of the labs?
TAILOR: The sergeant and I need to be able to see the bad guy coming. This position gives us clear lines of fire on both approaches.
If we're in a lab, he might be able to get quite close before we know he's there.
Gav 2: So we hide and lock the doors.
TAILOR: Locked doors haven't stopped him yet.
Gav 2: If you've got a clean line of fire, he does too.
TAILOR: True, but all of the killings we've caught on camera were performed at close range.
The weapons Roddy and Wick were carrying have disabled themselves. The enemy can't shoot us.
SCHLOCK: Or at least we don't think he can.
Gav 2: This is stupid. You should drop a shuttle, cut a hatch in the wall, and evacuate us. Then you can hunt this guy without us lying here like bait.
Gav 3: *screaming* Waaaugh! We're BAIT!?!?
TAILOR: Don't be ridiculous.
SCHLOCK: Captain, the bait is panicking.
