Well, listen up, sonny Jim. I ate a baby! Oh, aye! Baby, the other, other white meat! Baby, it's what's for dinner!
Ryujiro: Heh. So, what're you in here for?
Firo: Huh? Oh, uh. I messed some people up bad.
Ryujiro: "That's not what I'm talking about, buddy," the man said, chuckling. "That's not it at all."
Ryujiro: "What I mean is, what happened after that? You had to have done something after that to get yourself a ticket here."
Firo: Oh, uh. I messed some guards up bad, too.
Firo:What, you don't believe me? You don't think I could do it?
Ryujiro: Hah! You too, eh? Yeah, I get whatcha mean. You're in here for the same thing as me.
Firo:... You too?
Ryujiro: Yup. Well, in my case, there was this guard who pissed me off, so I gave his neck a little chomp. You understand, right?
Ryujiro: Heheh! Hey, ever heard of odorigui? It's this way of eating the Japanese have—you bite down on your food while it's still alive and moving. The feeling of something live squirming against your tongue, against your teeth as you bite down... It just all comes together with the salty taste of blood and makes it so incredible!
Firo: Yeah, okay. I think I've heard enough.
Ryujiro: Whoa, whoa, hear me out here. I mean, I think about it right now and... Damn, that feeling! That tearing sensation as my teeth snag against skin! The taste of iron flooding into my mouth! The sound of the guard screaming and the pain of the clubs hitting my head making the perfect seasoning... Delicious! It was so great I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

This one was a good one. Very nice to kill.
Easy to cut with my knife, like to cut food.

Cannibalism. Imagine that: chowing down on another human being. You gotta be all out of beef jerky, man. You gotta be really fucking hungry. But it happens, doesn't it? Still happens to this day. A bunch of people stranded in the wilderness run out of pop tarts, gotta eat something... Might as well be Steve! And by the way, how do you decide who to eat first? How do you decide who's first on the barbecue rack? Do you pick on the little guy because he's skinny and he can't fight back, or do you all gang up on the bodybuilder because he's got a lot of steaks and chops on him?

Is it true what they say? Does it taste like pork?

You don't understand... I've seen it. I've seen it happening. The ocean is dying, the plankton is dying¦ It's people! Soylent Green is made out of people. They're making our food out of people. Soon, they'll be breeding us like cattle for food! You gotta tell 'em! Listen to me, Hatcher! You gotta tell 'em SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE! We gotta stop them! Somehow! Listen! Listen to me... PLEASE!!!
