-> ''"The more complex a weapon, the more likely it is to have flaws. Kan Pojo was the best pistoleer I ever saw, then or since, but he was waxed by what was essentially a whittled rock when his state-of-the-art weapon failed."''

-> ''"Basically, it comes down to morale," '''[Cordelia Ransom]''' said. "I'm not going to suggest that morale can overcome enormous material odds. All the courage and determination in the universe won't mystically enable a mob armed with rocks to overcome trained infantry in [[PoweredArmor battle armor]], and you wouldn't believe me if I told you it could, now would you?"''

-> '''Interviewer''': So the SCRAMBLE gear was ineffective?
-> '''Wilford''': Ineffective? The goddamn SCRAMBLE were pieces of shit that killed the whole damn task force. You know only three people are alive besides me? All because some retard egghead thought of a “state-of-the-art countermeasure to SCP-096’s hostile reaction.” Those bloody idiots could have just put a bag over the target’s head and be done with it but no, we had to use state-of-the-fucking-art SCRAMBLE.
