Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Mansley. [[spoiler:During his interrogation of Hogarth to find out where the Giant is, he threatens to make it so that Hogarth will be taken away from his mother if he doesn't spill the beans, and later during the climax lies to Rogard about the Giant having killed a child, knowing damn well that Hogarth is with the Giant and will likely be killed in the crossfire.]]

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: What Mansley says near the end of the film, learning that [[spoiler: the nuke that he just launched at the Giant is also going to wipe him out along with everyone in the town.]]
