    Wheeler: Hey! Your ring's working now! I don't get it!
    Gi: We must be away from the pesticides in here!
    Wheeler: Good! I'll burn through the door! FIRE! (flames the door, but it does nothing) It's too thick! (the corn kernels pop into popcorn) Well, at least we won't starve.
    Linka: Wheeler, this is no time for a snack!

    Linka: Good, because I am getting tired!
    Wheeler: FIRE!
