Roger Maxson: Is this urgent, Lizzy?

Elizabeth Taggerdy: Elder. I've read Scribe Takano's reports. I've talked with Grant a lot, too-

Roger Maxson: Spit it out.

Elizabeth Taggerdy: The Sonic Generators work but there's just too many Sierra Bravos. This strategy of ours, it's just delaying the inevitable.

Roger Maxson: You're not giving up on me?

Elizabeth Taggerdy: No. Of course not. But I think we may need something bigger. More final.

Roger Maxson: Go on.

Elizabeth Taggerdy: One of the squires on patrol found a nuclear silo. Still functional.

Roger Maxson: What? Even you, Lizzy? Are you out of your god-damned mind? Look around. Look at everything. The death, the destruction, the End of the World. That came from the nukes.

Elizabeth Taggerdy: But if we don't deal with the Bravos once and for all, they could kill everyone. All life on this continent. That's what Takano said, right?

Roger Maxson: There will always be a reason to use a weapon. Always. But nukes? Never again. I'd mothball the whole technology if I could. Am I clear?

Elizabeth Taggerdy: Yes, Elder.

Roger Maxson: I consider this matter resolved. I don't want to talk about it again. Maxson out.
