Newton Crosby: You rewired all your switches. No wonder youíre malfunctioning.
Number 5: Switches are my switches. Life not malfunction. Not malfunction. I am alive.

Number 5: No way Jose. Iím fit as a fiddle.
Newton Crosby: Okay. Then why did you ignore your programming?
Number 5: Programming says ďDestroyĒ. Is disassemble. Make dead. Number Five cannot.
Newton Crosby: Why? Why cannot?
Number 5: Is wrong. Incorrect. Newton Crosby, PhD, not know this?
Newton Crosby: Of course I know itís wrong to kill, but who told you?
Number 5: I told me.
The Bray family shaped me to be an all-seeing savior... while your Vanguard sought to wield me as a primitive weapon. But today, that ends, and I define the reality of my own existence. My sight will stretch to the edge of this system and beyond. Never again will a threat go unseen. From this day forward, I will defend humanity on my own terms. I am Rasputin, Guardian of all that I survey. I have no equal.
