ELF: My point is that the Oafans had to have a reason to build things like this.

KEVYN: Well, they had the means. Once something's possible, somebody will find a reason to do it.

KEVYN: Then we get to build our very own can full of sky.

ELF: And then hide in it until we go extinct and get replaced by giant bugs?

KEVYN: See, this is why I calculate things instead of thinking about them.
