Quinn Carter: Sinister forces? The end is coming? Senator, you're making some big claims here. Do you have evidence to back it up?
Sam Blackwell: This is not some doomsday fever dream, if that's what you're asking, Ms. Carter. I received my information from reliable sources, yes.
Quinn Carter: And I'm just supposed to take your word for it?
Sam Blackwell: You're going to have to, Ms. Carter. I'm trying to save lives, not put more at risk by exposing my sources.
Quinn Carter: Senator, I'm not trying to be rude here, but it sounds like you're trying to start a panic, and without evidence, I'm not willing to be a part of that. I also have it under the strictest confidence that you've been seen making multiple visits to a certain Charleston neurologist as of...
Sam Blackwell: My health is not the issue here, Ms. Carter! These are peoples' lives! The Executive branch, captains of industry, the Department of Agriculture! I peeked into their world and they threatened my life! My daughter's life! We're just pawns to them! And the only way we survive ... is to step off the board. All I'm asking ... is that you share that message.
Quinn Carter: ... I, I meant no offense. You just have to know how this looks from my end.
Sam Blackwell: I, I understand. It's just a ... sensitive topic.
Quinn Carter: Would you mind if I asked you one last question?
Sam Blackwell: If it means you'll get the word out, go ahead.
Quinn Carter: You never resigned as Senator. Is that something you're planning to do?
Sam Blackwell: I am. Consider this interview my formal resignation. Spread the word, Ms. Carter. All I ask is that my warning goes with it ... and nothing else. Now, if you wouldn't mind. My daughter and I have a lot to do. We're on our own out here, after all.
