->'''[[ThePhilosopher Kimblee]]''': You would have no trouble escaping this situation with the stone at your beck and call. And once you were in a safe place, you could BOTH have your old bodies back. That's how your whole journey was supposed to end, wasn't it?\\
'''Alphonse''': ...But then we wouldn't save everyone else.\\
'''Kimblee''': "The greater good." [[EquivalentExchange You can't gain something without sacrificing something else.]]\\
'''Alphonse''': I wonder... Why are there only two choices? [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere "Save yourself and abandon everyone else."]] [[HeroicSacrifice "Give up on returning to normal and save the world."]] Why are those the only options? Why can't I choose "Save the world AND get our original bodies back?"\\
'''Kimblee''': I see. Experiment thoroughly enough, and you may discover NEW laws that the world must then abide by. [[DeconstructedTrope That would mean there is a FOURTH option...]] [[DownerEnding "You lose your chance to return to normal, AND you fail to save the world."]]

->I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question: Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?\\
