- [from trailer] McCord: The life you thought you had... it never happened.
[Jordan Two-Delta and Lincoln Six-Echo have just been told they are clones by McCord] Jordan Two-Delta: Bu- I have a mother! I remember her! McCord: Yeah, I know... Jordan Two-Delta: I grew up on a farm! I had a little dog a - and I had a bike... McCord: A bike, yeah. A pink, fluffy Flyer with little tassels on the handlebars? And you rode it up the street to your Grandmother's house, you'd ring the little bell, she came out and served you cookies on a hot plate? Jordan Two-Delta: Yes. McCord: No. Memory imprints. I've seen 'em - a buddy of mine is a programmer at the institute, he showed me. There's only, like, twelve stories, they change around little details, but they're all pretty much the same. The life you think you had before the 'contamination' - it never happened.
Merrick: Why don't you tell me about your dream? Lincoln Six-Echo: It's always the same dream - I'm on a boat, headed to The Island. Merrick: What happens then? Lincoln Six-Echo: I drown.
Albert Laurent: I'd say you've been privy to some trade secrets. Lincoln Six-Echo: That they create human beings that walk, talk, and feel. Those secrets? Albert Laurent: I am sure you won't discuss it with anyone. Lincoln Six-Echo: Who would believe it? All I know is, people will do anything to survive. I want to live and I don't care how.
Tom Lincoln: Look, you're creeping me out enough without that. Lincoln Six-Echo: [Imitating] Without that! Tom Lincoln: No, really, cut it out. That's enough! Lincoln Six-Echo: You're right, that is enough, sorry. Tom Lincoln: You're like a freak show! Lincoln Six-Echo: Yeah, it's weird.
