I Give LIfe
Dr. Merrick: I have discovered the Holy Grail of science, Mr. Laurent. I give life. The Agnates... they're simply tools, instruments. They have no souls. The possibilities are endless here. In two years' time, I will be able to cure children's leukemia. How many people on Earth can say that, Mr. Laurent?
Laurent: I guess just you and God. That's the answer you're looking for, isn't it?187Agree or disagree?

It's A Product
Merrick: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the next generation of science. The Agnate, an organic frame engineered directly into adulthood to match the client's age. You're looking at stage one - the development stage. Within 12 months, it'll be harvest-ready, providing a carrier of your baby, second pair of lungs, fresh skin - all genetically indistinguishable from your own and in compliance with the Eugenics Laws of 2015, all our Agnates are maintained in a persistent vegetative state. They never achieve conciousness. They never think or suffer or feel pain, joy, love, hate. It's a product, ladies and gentlemen, in every way that matters. Not Human!159Agree or disagree?
It Never Happened
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.84Agree or disagree?
