Hello! Whoevers in there, hello! Its Helena, Helena Van Garret!
—Helena Van Garret
No...no, no! It wasn't all my fault!! I didn't mean to do it! It wasn't supposed to happen, it really wasn't...it wasn't, it wasn't. I didn't mean to drop the flashbang...the pin wasn't even out. But, then he...Eugene shot it. The flash went off! And then everyone started to shoot, okay? Jess had the blade...some kind of knife, or something. She cut me bad. I grabbed her, okay, I used her as a shield! I didn't want to die, all I wanted to do was stop it all, stop her from killing me. And when it was over, everyone was dead but me! I killed my friends, I killed them... Ralphie, Eugene, Jess, and Harvey. All dead. And I had used Jess as a shield! I used her to live!
Well, well, well...
Accident... it was... it was an accident...
—Tayli E. Vreeland
You either live or die, that's down to fate, so I couldn't care less if you have guns. I'm ready to take my chances and try my luck at blowing every one of you away.
—Morgana "Anya" Vendvmagli
I wonder how many of our classmates have already snapped I wonder if I'm going to end up being a victim to a person I shared a class with, or ate with at lunch? I always used to tell my mum when I was little, I never wanted to grow old. Though I never wanted to die young either...
If someone with a gun finds us we're in deep shit, Bat Girl.
I'm going to have to decline for now, as dying just isn't on my list of things to do today.
—Cole Quentin Hudson
Yeah. I think He's up there, but he really works in f'ed up ways, you know? I bet this is His way of weeding out the ones that don't deserve life.
How lucky am I?
They all want to kill me. Everyone. Kill or be killed is the rule. The only one that doesn't hate me is me. They all want me dead!
Surviving is first and foremost on our list, until we can find some group we can join with real firepower and a way to hit back at this game.
Man, if you got to do one thing for me. Get off this fucking island alive... and continue making your music, hell make a song in my name, that would be nice.
How badly do you want it, Cillian?
—Mason "Mace" Lucien
Well hell, I guess that's tomorrow, huh? Fuck, looks like I will live to see 18. Barely. Heh.
Yo, Adam! Over Here! C'mon, don't leave me with the crazies!
No need for prayers here, I'm afraid this guy sold his soul a long time ago...
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it's queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there's some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Fuck this game! Fuck all of you, you sick motherfuckers! You'll never get away with this!
W-what kind of game?
I told you, stay down...it won't hurt...I promise you...just stay down...
Shut up! If you don't be quiet I'll rip off your mouth!
Don't worry. This beach will remain blood free. Wouldn't want to ruin the view for the others. And if you want your gun, you can bloody well come and get it!
Of course Im fucking scared. Im scared shitless. Im so confused right now I dont know what to do. Ive got terrorists telling me I need to take this dagger and shove it in your throat if I ever want to see my home again. Scared is an understatement.
NO! No, no, no. God thats just the problem with your kind, you always think everyones in love with you or something, when the fact is everyone thinks youre a backstabbing jerk. I was trying to cheer you up jackass, not get in your pants.
Katherine, wh-what are you doing?
Aaron...I'm sorry, but I plan on having a family one day. Kids, grandchildren, everything. And to do that, I think I'll have to kill everyone else on the island. Don't take it personally...you were actually kind of cute.
People don't understand how fragile a human body is... not untill it's broken
It's not fair!
Kill or be killed. Kill for the sake of others. Kill for the sake of yourself. Only one person walks away. That's what they told us....makes it pretty hard to trust a stranger like me doesn't it?
This, is hell on earth. An island, the board of a twisted game where we are supposed to kill each other. And, guessing as you weren't on the plane, they brought you here later,(...) This gun,(..) Is a weapon. You probably have some sort of weapon too, in that bag of yours. But we're not playing, not the group I'm in. We want to take these bastards down.
I think everyone's lost here. And, well, we all kinda need help too. But if you're wondering if I'm injured or anything, no, I'm fine.
Piss me off, you die!
I was working on a song before I left, It was called The Martyr. I think that seems appropriate.(...) And I will get off this island. One way or another.
—Garrett Albert Langston
Guess I either find someone, or hide like a little wuss. Damn, I wish I was more of a coward by nature....
Well, hello people of America, and hello evil terrorist organization. I guess I must really thank you for this opportunity to... express myself and become famous. So thank you. Now I just want to make sure you all know my name, I am Max Mc Neal. I have no bag, and right now am somewhat of an underdog. I will fight my way to fame, and I'll make sure you are all here for the ride. So for now...goodbye.
We're gonna die, aren't we? Someone's gonna come and kill us....What'll we do...? What'll happen to us now?
Slowly... slowly... empty your bag. Drop it on the floor. i want to see what weapons you have.
Sweet, this is cool. It's like Lord of the Flies, only better 'cause we get weapons to kill stuff with.
You ain't gonna believe this, man!(..) I think it's a katana! Cool, huh?
It would be great if you knew how do do that. I am glad I found you guys, and not someone who would attack me on sight, because that would probobly have been quite unpleasant for them.
If you die... then I'm sorry, and it's been nice knowing you, even for such a short length of time.
You guys have names, or do I need to label you Girl 1, Girl 2, and Boy 2? I'm Boy 1, you see.
—Eddie "The Sarge" Serjeantson
It's alright, I know you're scared. You don't have to be scared any more baby, I'm 104 lbs. of pure fighting machine and I won't let anyone harm a hair on your head. You can cut the faux macho protector act.
After going through so much, you've decided to put an end to all of this, by killing someone. Even if you don't like it, there's just no other solution for you, is there? Everything's a living nightmare and you want it all to end, yet you want to survive. You're driven to the point where all you can do is take someone else's life to save yourself.
He left me no choice...You guys understand that...right?
To think all I wanted was a nice vacation, some fun with my new entourage and all I get is a stupid contest! I did not want this! The bastards, they'll get theirs. I'll kill them, tear them to shreds.
Giving up your gun might be the most retarded thing I have ever seen! I mean that is your edge! That is your strength! You're just like Julius Caesar putting too much trust in the Senate will just get you stabbed by Brutus.
There's still hope for us. And it'll be together this time.
It's just that we're all uptight as it is, and that while I think we do need to stay on our guard, I just...I don't know, I think we'd all get along better if we kind of lightened the air a little, you follow?
— Amanda Jones
What the fu-
Look. You can stay here and be trigger happy all you want, but NOT with me, NOT with her, and NOT now. I got places to be. If you don't move, then my fist will find itself coming out the back of your head. Capeesh?
Were you dropped on your head as a child?
Cody didn't kill David, I did, so if you want revenge you should start with me.
So this is how it ends? Drowning by the hands of someone after surivivng so much.
Get back! Don't force me to shoot. I mean it.
Hell yes! Now the jocks can't kill me!
I wanna go home.
You're weak, you pussy, and they all know it! The first person that comes along is going to kill you, just like that, and then everyone will be shitting on your memory! You'll put your parents to shame, and why? Because you're a pussy! It's just like prison! If you get to someone and you kill them, nobody will touch you!
I really dont know I figured the government might have done something by now. But I think these collars are whats keeping them away, the terrorist are probably using the whole You come near, and we kill them all. Doesnt help, that if this goes through only one will alive in the end, ya know?
Okay well we should... hey! That's—that's a gun!
I'm into escaping! I'm really good at that! I've already escaped from prison once!
Mother, speak to me? Please come here... Please help me.
Im glad to hear that, personally I thought it was a rather horrid job, being in the rush and all. But really, well most likely have to re bandage it as well sooner or later.
Damn, man playing Mr. Dark and Cool, ain't cutting it.
Wednesday. Have you...seen Wednesday? Please...
Grr women, so weird and I want that food.
Pretty little kittens...all waiting for Shingami to show them to the afterlife.
—Johnny "Mordread" Lamika
Can we not start playing mind games? If we start thinking like that we'll end up stabbing each other in the back, I don't know about you two, but i'm not ready to give in to that sadistic bastards little game,
Dolly shouldn't run away!
Nev' Eden. Are thi two toghether? I just got dropped; an' I ain't keen on shootin' owt. 'Less I have to.
Yeah. I know it stings, if I'm making it any worse I'm sorry... I've never really done this before. Kinda makes me wish I'd paid attention in Health class,
—Mallory De Luca
This is my weapon? FUCKING USELESS!
I'm glad she's dead? What kind of human being does that make me?
—Gillaume "Gilbert" Archambault
What a waste of time.
Wouldn't it be great if we could leave all this behind and start a whole new life on one of those stars?
Monkey stole my face, took me down to another place, now im the leader of their race, im the monkey king.
Every Sunday in church, they preached about how you'd help us through our tough times, carry us through when the going got tough. Well, where the fuck are you now, huh? If you're really up there, if you're this omnipotent being that they always preached about, then what the hell are you doing letting something like this happen?! These people are DYING and nobody is doing anything to stop it! We're supposed to be your CHILDREN! You're letting them slaughter us like animals!
—Jamie Amy Robins
Don't worry, I won't hit ya!
Where... where's Carly? Carly's scared... I woked up and, and, and... why isn't anyone here?! Why is Carly alone? Where's Mr. Bodyguard?
She's dead....and I wasn't there for her... Then again, I was never around to begin with.
I'd feel a lot easier...fending off a stranger than a former friend.
I'm going to come home and everything will be okay.
I can help you with the whole death thing if you want. If not, you'd better stay right where you are. Think I'm exaggerating? Be my guest and call my bluff.
Am I all broken out?! Oh hurry it's in the side pouch of my bag.
None of us want to play this demented little game, okay?
Oh please... I don't trust you, you might as well be speaking Latin.
Jack...I... I don't know if you're out there, or if you're even still alive, but if you are... you've got to go on, and you've got to get out of this fucked up game. And when you do, you've got to hunt that motherfucker down, and he's got to pay for all of this. For... for me. For everyone.
Beat the game b-beat the terrorists? Thats right go home that that would be nice.
—Martyn "Murdoc" Ferdinand
You know what? You cant trust anyone, its all a matter of believing in them. But in this horrible game, believing doesnt exist.
Too late....I'm already red.
No, that would take too much time. In this game, you have to move fast or someone you can't beat will eventually find you. Trust me on that one, I've been here a while....
He didn't do the truffle shuffle...so I cut his head off.
You call this a fucking game?! I'm not gonna play unless I'm forced into it! And if I'm forced into it, I'm gonna shove that fucking cigar Danya had into his fucking nose!
I got this rope thing? At least I think that's my weapon... although it's not likely to cause much harm against someone dangerous...
Fucks sake, wouldn't it be best if we just all calmed down and worked this out together? I dont know about any of you at all but I'dd rather have you all live than murder each other in front of me.
The name's Mike... Michael... Mikey, whatever you want. It's a real stroke of luck I bumped into you two. I just woke up and here you are!
This game isn't about survival or killing everyone until you're the last. It's more than that, I can feel it, and that feeling we're all feeling is what's going to remind us of that. Everytime. So, feeling hopeless ain't all that bad, you just have to do it right.
Heh, yeah...they may be fucking idiots, but they're prepared if they want to pull off something like this.(...) Hate it when that happens. And, yeah...shit, you're right, we're hostages! That's all we are!
You are an idiot. Well, so we got off to a bad start, my name's Nevera Aero, but you can call me Nev.
So you're the terrorist? Not much really, thought you'd all have M16's and whatnot, you've let me down.
I dont now I can let you bleed to death slowly, or I could shoot you and put your out of your misery.
Well if you are reading this now, either I made it off of this island, or I am dead. I am guessing I am going to be dead, because I don't plan on winning. Not that I doubt my ability, but because if I win this game, I will lose. Sorry if this doesn't make too much sense, I am trying to write it as soon as possible, as I am in the middle of a car chase right now, and I am currently parked in front of a cliff.
I am not going to talk about my current car chase situation though, I just want to let everyone know, that I tried not to let any of my friends or family down. I am not playing the game, and I never will. If I go out, I plan on going out with a bang. I doubt this will ever get into the hands of my family, but I want you all to know I love you very much. Don't cry over me, and don't worry, for I am happy.
I have met some amazing people on this island, each one showed me a different part of myself. This experience will really show you who you are, and without the help of the friends I made on this island, I don't think I could have made it as far as I did. So I have to finish this note now, but I just want everyone to know, I did not play this game. Also, Danya, if you read this, See you in hell.
You aren't finished? (..) And you think that that puts your life over mine? You are sadly mistaken, my dear boy. What makes you think that your goals outweigh mine? At least my aspirations continue on outside of this game. The way you talk, you've no intention of living past the end anyway.
—Clemence Ceillet de Rousseau
I've been through some things with my friend. I don't know anyone in the final ten and I don't plan on returning any favours to anyone.(...) To tell you the truth I haven't really paid attention to the announcments....People are going to do anything to win now.....
And hey, you know...give the girl a break, I'm sure that you probably point a gun at the majority of the people that you run into on this island too, otherwise, well, you'd be dead. We're all fighting for our lives here, none of us gets to leave unless everyone else is dead, so yeah, we're all going to try and avoid getting ourselves dead. You may have had enough of people pointing a gun at you, but damnit, it's going to happen again, stop pretending it isn't.
You... you compared me to Aki Berg...
You should know that it'd be a relieving sight to see you on the ground with your chest riddled in bullets. I can't let you kill me knowing that you killed my teammate Jason Andrews. And I'll be damned if I let you off this island alive knowing of all the people you've killed in cold blood. You're ten...no, twelve times a murderer, Adam, and you know it. You don't deserve to go home. Maybe Amanda. Maybe the one you wanted to avenge. But not you.
That's the thing, though, Jacob. You and I took very different paths to where we are now. I made a promise to six people that I'd help protect them and I'd find a way off of the island. Now they're all dead. That tells me that in order to get off of this island, I've gotta do what I've gotta do.
No matter how much it fucking eats me up inside.
Thats urine and I believe the term youre looking for is masochist.
Anna where are you?
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?!
How about we sit down, I give you some water and we talk about what happened Michaels, having you as an enemy is not something I would enjoy.
Bet there's someone you want to save eh, Bryan?
Today is the first day of the end of your life, Damien! Enjoy it!
I didn't... do...
W-Who are you? Please, don't hurt me! I've got a way off the island!
Go ahead and shoot then!
Can't I at least try?[..]Don't I deserve to at least attempt to fight?
Not that I know of. I've only seen you and some girl I didn't learn the name of earlier
I'll make you ugly, too. Then you'll see... you'll see what it's like.
And a master of none,(...) Who am I kidding? There's no such word as 'friend' here. Even if I found someone to team up with, they'd just end up stabbing me in the back to save themselves. When the chips are down, everyone's just in it for thems—
—Jordan Mc Kiernan
And you aren't crazy and troubled?
Eat shit and die!
To whom it may concern:
My name is Wanda Lovett, and I'm a transfer student to Bathurst High School... or at least, I used to be. If you're reading this, that means that I've actually gone through with the actions I have sworn to take, and that I, like so many others, will have conquered this program in death. I won't give in to the demands of common terrorists, and I won't play this game. I won't sully my hands with the blood of others, and I'll not defile myself by making myself into a murderer.
However, unlike others out there, I know that there is no way out of this game. It's foolish to think that common teenagers could defeat a foe much more powerful than we are. This is simply a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, and it's one of which I refuse to partake. So, to those who knew me, and even those who didn't, know that I left this game as pure and untainted as the moment in which I entered it.
After much pondering on my part, I have decided to detonate my own collar. I won't sit here and rot, nor will I be gunned down by the hand of one of my fellow students, nor will I be murdered in cold blood by a faceless person a thousand miles away. I'll die by my own hand, in the only act of independence I'm capable of executing on this island. If you're reading this, then congratulations on living this long. Simply know that I could not play this game, and so instead have taken the liberty of eliminating myself from it. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor, perhaps it will be more successful than mine.
Fondest Wishes, Wanda Lovett
Who cares? Why the fuck don't you feel bad for doing that? I'm fucking horrible, already losing my mind to this shit...
This totally kills any love for camping I may have had in the past,
You don't understand, Callahan. We have to play. We have to run the game. There's no way out. There's nobody that's coming to save us. This is our fate, whether we like it or not. Foe against foe, friend against friend, brother against brother... this is what it comes down to. Sympathy and compassion... they don't exist here. This is a life or death situation, and when push comes to shove, my life is far more important than yours... so get out of the way and let me finish what I started, or you'll be the one meeting the point of this thing.
Jeux sans frontieres.
Yeah, I know youre probably thinking Im crazy. But, I cannot go through this game I cannot face Diana if I killed someone in a fight. So, lets just be fair about this we lay the shotgun down and if I lose you shoot me in the back of the head and if you lose Ill do the same.
I-I cant I cant anymore. I dont want to die here. I dont. I dont. I dont. I dont.
L-l-l-look, I need to f-find Kasumi as s-soon as I can. You both know who she is, right? What she looks like? So l-let's just get this search thing over with. I could really use your help. What do you say?
Listen, I know they'll for sure look here if you keep babbling on like a fuckin' mental patient. Now chill. The fuck. Out.
Whitney... Look...I'm not playing. I promise. Just say it now if you don't trust me but... I'm not going to kill anybody.
I know that this is 'survival of the fittest', and I am quite aware of what that means, but still... He should know better than to attack people if he wants friendly contact.
Eugh...I can't believe I did that...
Thanks, though. Im good...done it before. I admit though, last time I just poured a bit of whiskey on the cut. This is all...sterile or something. I dont think I heard your name on the announcement earlier, but have you seen anything to be worried about? I mean, like, anything to say one of the terrifying and fear-inducing villains of the fairytale are headed this way?
Lets put the hockey stick away and think on more IMPORTANT matters.
You thought you would kill me, didnt you?(..) You thought you be able to survive that much longer if you took on someone without much of a weapon, am I right?(..) You were wrong.
What does it look like I'm doing?(..) I'm hiding. What are YOU doing?
Cause you can't stop the beat!
Cold... wet... dark... dying is cold and salty... I won't die, it's too cold..
G-get thee-(...) Be-hind me Satan!
A shotgun would be a beautiful thing to have. So much power in such a portable form. Better than these fucking binoculars.
Fuck who the hell am I, Queeris?
You never could get up before noon,(..) Did you need some help with this?
Damn it! Hey, Lady Luck, how about being a good girl and tossing some of that magical stuff my way?!
I'm going to get my things and leave this house. I don't want to fight you. Honestly, I just can't stay with you. Not to offend, but you're just so tacky and obnoxious, and you get under my skin. I'm afraid that if I stay with you that we shall realy hurt each other.
We cannot lose, look at our weopans. We are going to bring a bang to this competition!
—Russel "Russ" Gofis
Everybody stay right where you are. What the hell are you thinking? This is a church, you can't defile SHIT in here! Any of you want to think about killing, get the fuck out, now!
Excuse the use of profanity, but fuck if there was ever a time to romanticize something it would be after youve eviscerated two individuals.
Over a hundred kids have died because of this this game, what's going to make us so special that we're going to get a burning bush or something to that nature that leads us to our freedom from this island?
Attack you? With what? The best I can do is to throw harsh language at you, and frankly, I don't think it'd be worth the effort, because you don't look much like someone who'd attack anyone, yourself.
Hello! May I come in? It darkens, I do not want be alone with the ...(...) ...monkeys? No...sorry, my English is not good. With the...other team!
...in all seriousness, though...is this ACTUALLY Survival of the Fittest, or is Ashton Kutcher going to jump out of a bush and tell us we've been Punk'd? I really don't know what the fuck is going on.
Umm... h-hi. I'm A-Alice. Alice Nichols. I won't hurt you. A-After all, I don't have anything that could do any damage, anyway.
...I've heard that...the heart is really nutritious...
Pardon me? This "bullshit" as you just so affectionatley called it happens to be why I am the person I am. If you don't like my choice in life, or religion itself, by all means that is your choice. However, I will not tolerate you badmouthing it. If you want my help here then from now on you will watch what you say and if you don't like that, then fuck off.
You better keep up then, cause if it goes down like that, I'm...fuckin'...woosh, outta here.
Thank thank you, for saving me. I — I don't really know how to thank you other than (...) "It's just thanks really, I'm looking for someone myself. And, you saving me allowed me to do so.
—Elias Eli Topher Mc Connell
I brought food for you, little one. Don't worry. It's in my duffel bag, remember? Wait. That's where you should be. Wait. Huh? The terrorists are letting me keep you on the island? I thought they'd take out any complicating things, and a pet certainly complicates things.
Debrah, it hurts, oh god it hurts!
I can't believe that this has already started! This is absolutely outrageous. Can they really be trying to kill each other this quickly? Why not team up and try and take down the system? I'm not much of a groupie, but I'm no fool. I know that if you don't find a trusted group in this situation, you can't possibly manage to live. Fools. They're not even trying to kill each other in the quickest possible way. It seems to be more of an effort to inflict as much pain as possible on each other...
"I vaguely remember someone saying the last Survival of the Fittest winner promising something similar. We're still here.(...)I don't know what happened to him.
You know Mister Gold, Art class doesn't really start until he shuts up.
I could really use some weed right about now.
No... I just dont want to be alone, Blake... its so cold and I dont want to be alone.
—An Linh Tuan
Karmas a bitch.
How do you think you're gonna survive out there alone? You're hurt, you're defenseless... it's crazy. I don't like this situation any more than you do, but with as many of us as there are here, at least we're safe. If you wander out there, all by yourself, there's no telling who or what you'll run into. I don't know you very well, but I don't want to hear Hal Carpenter on the next announcement... and if you leave, I get this feeling that I will.
"You hear that, kid?(...) If you're tired of living, we'll gladly put a hole through your head like Faust did van Garrett! Or else just go and get gone!
Dog eat dog. Dogs don't eat dogs, they eat birds and cats and Kibblebits if they have a family. Those words are silly. But I would have gotten that right if that silly glasses boy hadn't answered before me. Yes, I would have gotten it right.
Oh . Nothing. But Lee-Ann . Do you want to be saved?
That can't be real,
I don't want to play this game anymore...
The part that makes me feel shitty here is that, despite my appearance, attitude, and mentality... I am too weak to kill anyone. And then, because of my appearance, attitude, and mentality, I have no friends to kill or see die. I have nothing, and that's what this place has shown me.
Look, I'm fucking sick to my stomach from this twisted hell-hole. I don't want to hurt anybody. I just want to go home, with everyone else intact and alive,(...) I suppose that I'm just another threat to you. Well, fucking hell, girl, you're all the fucking same, you just haven't fucking tried to hurt me yet. It's this goddamn island; it's screwing with your head. You're afraid of dying, hell, everyone is, and you want to take it out on somebody. Great, you know what? I bet most of the more psychotic players from the last one of these things started out just like you. I kind of wonder what you're going to fucking turn out as... A rapist maybe? A cannibal? I know that if you survive long you're going to be murderer. Everyone will be, by extension. That's what's so fucked up about this place.
Hanging in there, I suppose. (...) How about you? Hell of a trip, eh?
Hey, you wanna do us all a favor and shut the fuck up?(...) This isn't the time or place for your bullshit...if you wanna say your prayers, there's a church nearby. You can go off and rant there for all I care...I'm only interested in staying alive.
Thats what Flotsome and Jetsome are doing. Their glowing eyes have become enchanted so they will brainwash the citizens of Atlantica for her own benefit!
O-oh! N-no! Dont! Please! Im not playing!
I don't plan to be killed by you. Someone as imperfect as you? Hah, give me a break.(...) It'd be an dishonarable. My pride would be damaged forever. Thats something I can't afford.
You might've guessed, I don't talk much (...) I really don't have much to talk about, at all.
What's the scoop, boss?
You think I'm insane?! You haven't seen insane yet sweety... trust me, you'll figure out the difference!
I just want to go home . Floret Harold help me please.
Whitney...(..) Look...I'm not playing. I promise. Just say it now if you don't trust me but...(..) I'm not going to kill anybody.
Sorry Ed. At least you get to go see your bro, right?
I don't know what to do Deliah...I'm so sorry...
I'm sorry Dad, I failed.
Mean me no harm? Are you listening to yourself Steve, you're sounding like a fucking pussy.
Nobody makes a fool out of me.....
We should at least take her off of that glass. Give her some decency.
I might as well die good looking.
If it isn't Paris Persphone. The Gossip King(...) We meet again.'
God... or whoever you are up there... I know that I haven't always been a good person. I've made some bad decisions in my short lifetime. Everyone makes bad decisions sometimes, we're not perfect. We're not supposed to be, right? But I... this can't be happening. Not to me. There's so much that I have to do. I can't die here, on this island... I can't die at sixteen. You understand that, don't you? I just... I need more time. I need... more time.
Nobody's perfect, Ali.
Fuck me gently with a chainsaw.
I miss my friends, too,(...) but that don't matter much now. The only friend I've got now...you tried to kill...(...) I cannot...let anyone kill...my love...
You really are a fighter. Stick to your guns all the way, huh? I can respect that. Hopefully I'll be able to do the same.
From the sack to the grave, always a Fist, and always a friend...in this world and the next, right Bryan?
Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume you're playing, right?
I love you Huy
At least I can't really say a bullet was wasted... Hey.. seeing as it was my gun.. Do you think that counts as my kill?
I've seen things that no human should see. Creatures like us... we aren't human anymore. We don't deserve to exist with other humans. I want to leave this weak, fragile vessel. It is the will of God. It is why we are on this island. It is because we do not deserve to live... because we have all committed sin. I... have embraced that.
It's really nothing personal," she whispered, "You were the best I'd had... in a long time.
Well, I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it.
Who likes Old Navy anyway?
Things are pretty rough out here, you gotta keep your eyes peeled all the time,(..) I havent been able to catch much sleep for just that reason... well, that and a few others.
Arrraaaggghhh! You fucking bastards!(...) Sick bastards...'
—'We were on the bus, and...the busdriver, I guess he was in on it. One minute I was sitting beside my homeroom teacher, the next...there's little bits of her on my lap.¨
Danya you sick son-of-a-bitch. I just wanted to let you know before I head out of this area that you are the load your mother should have swallowed. What a waste of life you are. Even though I realize I stand nearly no chance of winning this game. I hope whoever does blows your fucking head off and takes a shit down your neck. Toodles!
—Robert "Rob" Adams
NO.. NO!(...) This isn't supposed to be real! It's a stupid TV show!
I thought I told you to drop the gun,(...) Don't make me have to do something that I'll end up regretting. I just want to ask a few questions...tell me the truth and I just might let you go. But if not...
You knew...I couldn't do anything...that bitch I was forced to call my mom would just exploit it and make me suffer more...I know nothing about you...then maybe I should try to get to know your inner self better
I wish we were on the beach again.
We came a long way, you know... probably wouldn't have survived this long if not for you. Guess I should... thank you for that. I know you... think you failed everybody... but you didn't. You can't save everyone, Ricky... but you should at least try to save... yourself. At least if... you get out of here... you'll have won some sort of victory... for all of us. Don't just... lay down and die... okay? Get out there and... and win
I know you want me to win, Whit... but I can't. I'm sorry...
Well, well, well. Not such a bad-ass anymore, now are we? Did you forget, Bryan, that we're playing with people's lives? Did you forget that as much effort that you spent on protecting Tori - and failing, I might add, that you aren't made of steel yourself? You're no Superman, hun, and you certainly don't shrug off bullets very well.
God, if you're up there....er...well, you know. Amen.
I would say resistance is futile, but that might be a bit too mad scientist for my taste.
I hope she's dead.
I might as well, I don't have much of a choice, do I?
Why the hell wouldn't I? It's life or death, only the morons choose death.
You're trying to take her away from me, aren't you? You're trying to take away the one god damn thing I have left!
Hello.... what's all this then?
God...what the hell is this?! Where the hell am I?!
Im so sorry
I don't... think... anyone will... miss me... much.... I'm sorry... mom...dad... I can't be the... normal kid...you wanted... be home...soon... so sleep...sleep...sleepy... so...cold...tired...cold...
—Karl Van Buren
Y'see.... this is a gun. A real actual, factual gun that's going to, like, hurt if you get hit by it. Especially if you get hit in the head, cuz you'd die. Not like any of those fake pieces of shit. No. This shit be' real. And, like, I have it pointing right at you guys. And like....I'm loading it right now. And don't go pretending that you can't talk your way out of this, cuz that ain't possible...
I don't know really know what to do Mc Callum, but we just can't stay in one place...right now I need to most importantly change shirts, if we do run into your lil' girlfriend we don't want her thinking you're seducing lil' ol' me.
I need to stick with someone. I j-just don't feel safe. You guys don't mind it if I stick with you? I've got no one else to be close to. I'm all alone in this game. I need some allies to back me up. Please?
HEY. You get the FUCKING HELL away from me you freak. Go back to whatever gutterhole you came from!
You're quite right. You should learn to be more careful. After all, not everyone who happens to be wandering through this jungle is quite as peaceful as your lovely little group seems to be.
It's quite the play on our situation, don't you think?
My whole life, I've worked toward my own goals. I've missed out on friends, relationships, all the so-called "fun" things throughout high school... because I wanted to realize my own ambitions. And now, that man, that "Danya", as he calls himself, he's threatening to take my dreams away from me... and I can't let that happen. I want it far too much. I can't let myself die here. Even if... even if it means going through other people to stay alive.
This ain't gangsta, yo!
He's not a mosquito you idiot. Get down and I'll handle this.
You know, as a matter of fact, I do feel pretty spectacular right now, so why bother trying you out? I like picking on the one's who've been broken in already.
Paul? Paul?! Help me! They're going to kill me! Help me!
—Katherine Blanco note
Listen, if neither of you are playing and you want to team up then I want to know you're committed to getting everyone we can out of here.(...) That might mean we all die. You think you can handle that?
Look. I know things don't seem too great right about now, but the truth of the matter is: we're in this, for better or for worse. We're in a bad situation, maybe an impossible one, but we can't just lay down and die. Even if we end up failing to make any difference at all, the important thing is that we tried
—Ricardo "Ric" Chee
Evening. I don't believe we've been properly introduced. If you're travelling with Guy Rapide, you're probably growing tired of playing the Jackie Chan to his Chris Tucker. Just think of me as somewhat of a ... a Don Cheadle, so to speak. A wise old fool who happens to be hoping that what I'm thinking and feeling isn't betraying my cool exterior.
Yeah youre right, He nodded, somewhat shakily, looking towards Keith. He tried to smile a bit. Its all a lie, isnt it? Theres gotta be some sort of mistake. Just an accident or something. Theres gotta be some sort of explanation for it all. You guys cant be killers. I dont believe it.
You broke your promise. You said youd always be with me. Until the end. You said youd DIE for me This is your own fault, you know? You brought this on yourself. Well then YOU CAN JUST ROT IN HELL BY YOURSELF FOR ALL I CARE.
Heh. I haven't been to church in a long time. Ironic that it'd be like this,
—Anderson "Andy" Lee Walker
Well, well, well,(..) Funny running into you here, isn't it. Seems like you've earned yourself quite the reputation, Gabriel. Not bad... for a pathetic Terran. Thought you were going to add me to that list, didn't you? I hate to tell you this, but Terrans like you... they aren't capable of defeating a Methuselah like myself.
—Ivye Ember Dewley
I am the master butcher!
I'm sorry, Shane.
So what's the plan? Find some friends and get the hell out of dodge? I support both of those.
Oh! I think I know what you mean. Haha. Sorry about that.(...) Hey... why are you hiding away 'ike that? I get your logic. but I'm not going to be killing anyone, especially with my bare hands...
Mon dieu! P-please, please don't kill me.
Don't be a smartass, I'm the one with the spear. I'm about to take this spear off you, so just get up, an-hey, wait a second.
Original recipe or extra crispy?
Melina, I don't know if I can do this. Why do we have to kill people? I don't want that hanging over my soul. I... I'm not sure... I can do this...
—Monique St. Claire
They're playing,(..) People are scared for their lives, so they're doing what they have to do live. That man... he fills people's heads with the idea that if they kill everything that moves, they'll survive. The truth is, each of our survival rates is... one in... a hundred? Two hundred? Five hundred, even? Killing other people... it's not going to accomplish anything.
I could be trying to trick you, but I've never really cared to be any good at that sort of thing. Besides, I haven't killed anybody yet. If I were going to start, I think I'd have done that yesterday. I have less reason to trust you than you do to trust me, so, do what you will. Stay or go. Shoot or don't. Maybe if you obey your captors they'll let you go home. I doubt it though.
Day 5, Clive. Here. If this is a danger zone, then we will meet the caves.
My mother's dead you asshole! My mother's dead, and so's my sister, just like yours is gonna be at the end of this god damn GAME!
Um, hi. As long as you're letting him pass, can I go too? I've only got this, and I don't want to hurt anyone.
Danya...why do you have to take the cave away from me? I like it in here...
I'm Keiji. Sarcastic-man and stammer-boy said we've been here for... um. Like, three days. They said other stuff about people like, getting killed, but that can't be true, we're all good, nobody kills each other right? But I'm not worried if people are, I've like, got a sword, which you can like, choppy chop bad guys and stuff with. It's not a shinken though, which is bad, they're good, because I can do Iaido properly, but not with this, and that makes me kinda sad and stuff. I won't cry though! It's only a sword,
When ARE you going to let the rest of us in on your plan, anyway, Joseph? I'm beginning to wonder...
We're coming, maybe if you wouldn't walk so fast...
You sure that's a good idea, Joe? We don't know who she is, if she's killed anyone, or whatev, y'know?
''I think that you might be right. I dont want a stump for a hand. But I think you've got a good point, and I'll be doing something, allright.
Doesn't matter, Braden. If someone else needs help, I say we should try and give it to them. Especially if it can help us get out of here.
—Joeseph "Joe" Gai
Better be carefull of your chickadee(..) Shes pretty dangerous. See what she did?(..) Dont want that to be you, now do you?
Youve known me for a very long time Melina and knowing this you should also know that I dont lie and I dont bullshit people-especially when lives are at stake,
Evaluate? How's "we're all fucked" for an evaluation?
You can't blame those who are caught within the game. People who have turned into killers, people like John Rizzolo, it isn't their fault. They're simply adapting to their own circumstances. When you're in a kill-or-be-killed world, you can't fault the people who try and make sure that they don't die by any means possible
You weren't supposed t-to cry! You werent supposed to be sorry! You were supposed to be a demon! A monster! I shouldn't have to feel sorry for you!
—Edward "Eddie" Sullivan
Right. How many lives do we have left?
Dawn was good...but I'm gonna have so much fun with you.
I have no excuses. It's fight or die, and I'm not going to be the one to die.
Man, you got to think big. We made it this far into the game and you're still thinking small. I mean, we could have anything. Right now there are no rules, you can say, do, think, dream whatever you want. This could be your last day alive, and you're still thinking about bread and water. It's time to step up, start thinking more. You've already taken a human life, I don't know what other trouble you could get into by dreaming a little big.
James...What happens if...we're the only ones left?
It would suck. It would suck to come this far and then everyone die because no one's been killed in a day. It would almost feel like all the people that have died here.. well, it would all be a waste. Because there wouldn't be a winner.
If you really wanted to save her, you would have done something, anything to save her. Dont lie to yourself Sullivan, youre out to win. Youre playing this game just as much as me.
S-sorry if I'm sounding k-kind of on edge right now, b-but I've been on the run ever since someone standing next to me was shot and killed right in front of m-m-my eyes.
The people that do take part. They're murderers, and they're doing it willingly. They're a threat to anyone that's innocent... Players are fair game, as far as I'm concerned. Murder deserves justice, and I doubt anyone else is gonna step up.
So, I guess this means we're the good guys, yeah?
—Örn "Dutchy" Ayers
TAKE THIS, DON'T DIE
—R.J. Lowe note
Don't lecture me, I'm a fucking scientist's wet dream. I know more about physics than could fit in your entire brain
Now then, I'm afraid I must bid you all adieu. I look forward to meeting the rest of your children, siblings, lovers, friends and what not. And I'm sure they're looking forward to meeting me as well...
It's been a pleasure playing with you... I hope... I hope that you find a way to put yourself at peace.
We were supposed to all go back.
This garden... when I'm gone, when... he's... just burn it all. I made it thinking it would be... I don't know... beautiful or something, but it's not. It's ugly and it's a disgrace to her... to everybody. Just destroy it...
You got a prayer, let's hear it.
But uh, I know that doing this shows that you really, well, cared about her. So.. now everyone'll know, no matter what happens, they'll know that. I think my dad would say that it'll always be a symbol of that. Hell of a lot better than I'll get or, well, most of us will.
While I'm here on earth, I'd rather spend my time making something pretty.
Look. Bad move, Aaron.
You know what? Maybe I am a bad person. But fuck these guys, I want to live.
There are no heroes on this island. Not anymore.
At least you tried. You tried to be a hero. You tried to help people. Fuck, that's worth doing. I spent most of my time trying to find someone and hurt her, and I hurt a lot of other people, and when I finally caught up with her I didn't even hate her anymore.
Hi guys. Bye guys.
I have two little brothers. You kill me, and you're killing their big sister.
—Gabriella Parker, BDA
Agh, no! They took my copy of American Gods!
Like, we need to get together the smart kids and work our way out of this shit.
Heh, yeah, Joe's right. It's empty. Sorry for the scare.()You can't be to careful around here.
Well at least it's a spike, the worst I could do is let people step on these.
Don't worry, I'm here. I'll keep you safe.
I almost pissed myself, you fucker,
Oh, shit. I'm so sorry. Do you need any-
You seriously think all those deaths were accidents? Seriously? One, maybe, sure, but all of em? Youre crazy too.
—Francis St. Ledger, BDA
Let's never do that again, kay? Especially cross country. That was not fun, and I was damn lucky I didn't end up tripping on a root and breaking my neck,
Max, you were pretty much the last person I'd want to eat breakfast with back home, what makes you think it'll be different on murder island?
So. Either of you have plans for the end of the world?
Goodbye and... hello.
There will definitely be players. If one comes after us... I would rather we were the ones left standing. A weapon will be necessary, no matter how much we dislike the fact.
I have an axe down there. It's pretty heavy though. I was thinking about just ditching it somewhere where no one can use it, but I can bring it along if we might need it.
I'm Stacey Mordetsky. You know, rich girl, loser brother, dad owns a barbecue place... ring any bells?
It's... I guess it's cloudy with a chance of dying down here.
G-gotta...trust people, Arthur,(...) G-g-gotta try. C-can't be afraid.
Pillowcase Containing a Rock(...) Oh no.
God, if you're around or whatever, help Dan's family out. And shit. Amen. Let's get this dude in the ocean.
Cody... Cody, it wasn't your fault.
Alive's close to alright.
—Lauren Rowe, BDA
Im so sorry, all of you. You deserved so much better than this.
Don't lie to her
—Ilya Petrovich Volkov
Sorry,()I can't let him go unless I know he can't kill anyone else.
That. Little. Bitch.
N' what if we don't get them off? We get murdered by our fuckin' fri-classmates, or we get fuckin' blown up anyways!
I'm.......I'm sorry....I didn't mean....I just wanted to—
So friggin' dumb, all of this.
You might be killers, but I'll bet you've never had a real fight.
Way I see it, only assholes think they need a reason not to shoot people. And I wouldn't have had to pull shit on you if you hadn't been waving that thing at me to begin with. Only reason I can give is that only bullies go around poking unarmed girls with guns, fuckface. But I don't think that would mean anything to—
Just... Just stay safe Ruby. Don't take any unnecessary risks, or accept candy from strangers. But most of all, don't you ever...
We saw what Hansel did, and so I cant contest that the people who he said died are dead. However, I refuse to believe that six people on this island suddenly became heartless killers overnight.
And have you been threatening people?
—Alexandria "Alex" Ripley
Maynard... you look like you could use a hug.
Cody, man, relax. I just got here, I don't know what Edgar did, but is it really worth blowing his head off? We're better than this.
Lucky, most obviously. Less people to deal with. Less of a chance to get killed.
Jaq? What the hell-
Do you guys want to stick around here for a while? I mean, we went through all the trouble to get here, so there has to be a reason for that, right?
God-damn it,() God-damn all of this.
"Hey Captain, would you mind if I just stay up here as lookout? You know, make sure our things aren't stolen and whatnot. That way, if you or Sara do want to leave, you don't have to worry about your things being stolen and it would be safer since the two people can look out for each other. You ok with that?
You-() Can sit there and bleed for all I care.
Well, it wouldn't hurt to give the dead something of a funeral. To give them some final dignity, you know? We just need a shovel or something.
Hey, terrorist fuckfaces!()Guess what? Im about to set this whole shitty island on fire! Yeah, that's right: someone will see the fire, and then your whole shitty plan will be up in smoke when the rescue boats come sailing!()And there aint shit you can do about it!
Nah,()Sleeping people are both boring and polite. Don't cause any trouble. I'm more worried about what they do when they wake up.
Stop,(...) Drop your gun. You're-
What the fuck?(...) I can't walk a mile without someone popping out of the bushes and trying to kill me?
—Maximillian "Max" Sawyer
Room for one more? Um, body. And live person. Two more. You know what I mean. Sorry.
Sorry, man. I wanna go home, though. You know how it is. Gotta get my one sometime, and, hey, you're doing a good thing, right? Helping me, like you wanna help your friends?
I think so,(...) I hear sometihng. Someone.
Weren't we going to look into...y'know, fortifying this place. Making it...safe. Relatively speaking.
This was never my reality, and I refuse to be bound by your laws any longer!
Lord...(...)...forgive me for what I've said. But it wouldn't have made a difference anyway.
"So...anyways...(...)...assuming you guys were here for the same reason as us...do you maybe want to team up, at least for tonight? We could, like, sleep in shifts; look out for each other; find things to write with; make a plan in the morning...assuming...(...)...I'm sure we all wanna feel safe to sleep, ya know? Bella and I haven't been on this side of the island, and we haven't heard anything. I dunno about you guys, so...(...)What'dya say?
Yeah, we're trying not to cause any trouble,(...) We're fine with just sitting here, talking about music, and hoping some friendly people run by. We don't need to play the game.
MacGyver? No, I dont have nearly enough paperclips handy to be him.
—Alexander de Gaulle
I was on the announcements too, y'know, you probably heard. They said I was their favorite.
—Summer Simms, BDA
It's not alright. It's not alright at all...
So, what's our plan of action, Captain Mulcahy?
I...I should have run once I saw you had a gun,(...) Guns seemed to have followed me around and were always going off around me.
Well for one, I may still be killing,(...) but it's not exactly something fun or enjoyable for anyone involved including me. Uh, for another? I don't think I could pull my gun on you without getting blown apart by that giant-ass-
—Theodore "Theo" Fletcher
It's going to rain soon.
I am not, nor will I ever be 'Girl-number-seventy-four.' I am Brianna Battaglia, and I promise that we'll find a way off this island. Together.
Hey. Can you ..feed my cat for me if Im not around?
Fuck did you say, puto?
I don't believe you.(...) Everyone has a choice.
I... look Chris, I don't want to explain too much. You know, obvious reasons. But I promise you that I've got something. I need some broken glass, or anything sharp.
Right outside. They're standing in plain view last I saw.() Wasn't anybody we knew.
Okay, I'll leave. I really don't feel like being killed right now. Go... go do your thing somewhere,(...) Act like some comedian while doing it. I don't care.
I tried to stay safe. I tried to keep everybody in the black. I tried to stop the game.(...) I couldn't.
Hey...guys. Just...listen for a second.(...)I mean, the way we say it, it isn't any more suicide than just being on this island. We...we're going to die anyways, right?
W-we could run it, maybe. Try and surprise em. Most p-people our age cant shoot a gun, I mean, right? And its really hard to s-shoot someone with no experience. I bet we could m-make it. I-I have the weapon, s-so I could rush them f-first, you know? Clear the d-doorway and then book it. Just run. I-Im pretty good at r-running, I think
I don't care if you don't believe in rescue. I don't believe in playing this game. I'm no threat to you, but we'll be safer looking out for each other.
No, I'm not pointing out the obvious now to make life easier. I'm pointing it out to try to get you to calm the fuck down, because your reaction was pretty terrible. Most people don't freak out when they see something they expect.
So... what's the endgame? With the car I mean?
I multiplied. Then I subtracted. That's what we do now. That's how we keep the most people around.
—Garret Wilde, BDA
I don't know if you're upset with me for offering to leave the shotgun against the wall, but I wanted to let you know I was sorry. If I'd been thinking I'd have at least asked, but I...I just...I don't know. It's been so hard to think clearly since I woke up. I thought maybe that it would help calm everything down, but it looks like that wasn't meant to be.
Look, I-I said I wasn't trying to win. I would never try to... I mean do I look like I'd ever try to shoot anyone?
Hey, uh. Morning Paris. How about that there... weather?
—Sunshine "Sunny" Cho Lee
Why.......that's.....not fair. That's.....not fair at all.
It's not like we're all going mad, you know? Some people never do. It's just a few that can't control themselves. Last time some people got out, maybe if we get enough people with cool heads, we'll be able to show 'em again.
I'm not suggesting we give up,(...) No matter what, that's not an option for me.
... We're not acting like nothing happened. I just don't think it's going to help anyone to keep dwelling on this.
What is it for you? Obviously, trying to get to the end. Beyond that, though.(...) Got some kind of grudge against society? Get off on the adrenaline? The feeling of exhilaration? Or can't you feel, 'cause your head is fucked?
Where we are, huh? It's like a convenience store of some kind. If you meant city, I can't help you. I have nooooooo fucking clue.
The crazy thing is,(..) I'm kind of glad this happened. I always thought it would go the other way. I thoughtfuck, a lot of the time I thought I was right on the edge. I thought maybe when someone finally caught Maynard, when I didn't have to look after him anymore, maybe I'd start looking after myself.
Just... Just wanted you to drop the gun.(..) Thought you were... Thought you were gonna shoot.
I don't think, when it's all over, I'll end up in a good place.
—Rutherford "R.J." Roger Jr, BDA
I think that I, or we, should retreat. I mean, they won't hurt us if we leave, so we're fine.
Wow, what a bunch of followers you've all turned into,(..) You totally called my bluff. I'm not strong enough to move the barrier. I was hoping one of you would volunteer to help, without having to confess that. But it's out there now. We can move if you want, but I thought the whole point of coming back here was to reclaim are already fortified location.
Brave the front entrance? Um, Logan? Sweetie? Is there a reason we're not going in the front door? I mean, why not just go in instead of standing out here?
Well, some friends and I are going to hunt down players.
Joe, I command thee to go to fucking sleep now.
—Aileen Aurora Abdallah
I just want this to be over with.
...Shit. I got nothing.
Don't you want to live?
—Jessica Murphy, BDA
No. You're Benjamin Fucking Ward. You're better than this. No one gets to tell you when to fucking die. Not even you, dumbass.
Why the hell do people keep killing?
Just think though. I'm only up, what, twelve feet? Even at this height, one false step and I could seriously harm myself.(..) Pretty scary, don't you think, Marcus?
My name hasn't been on the announcements and I'm not covered in blood, so I would assume that I'm not.
—Sharon Elizabeth Austin
Th-things will be alright.
''That doesn't mean we have to start dying now!(...) You kill this early and people will call you on it! They'll hunt you!(...) You gotta wait till there's no other option, that's the only safe way to do things!
As if you could actually do it. I dare you, go ahead and shoot me! Prove that you're not as much of a weakling as you look.
Are you fucking serious?(...) You kill somebody and that's how you're going to fuckin' talk about her?
Of course, assuming that all goes as planned, we'd have to do something about the whole 24-hours-no-kill limit. Maybe draw straws, or take a vote, something along those lines... Either way, the longer we put this off, the more likely it is that we'll all get rescued and taken away from this hellhole.
It's better to either care just about yourself and keep yourself alive, o-or care about the living. Those are the things that will count in the end.
—Rosemary Michaels, BDA
Tell me: how did you reach your decision? How did you know that hunting people down was the right path for you?
Hello. My name is Alda Abbate. You killed my brother. Prepare to fucking die.
I just, I wanted to change, you know? Maybe if I turned a new leaf, got my shit together, looked normal, I could, maybe, stop being such an creeper asshole? Like, I, I don't know. I don't know what I was looking for, going to prom with you. I didn't have any friends so maybe if I went to the prom with a date maybe they might... I don't know. I know what I wanted wasn't what you wanted. So I'm sorry.
Look, we're all that we have left, along with Bella, and maybe a couple others. That's what matters. I don't want to make a statement. It's a waste of time. Everything I want to say to the guy ought to be covered in Kindergarten and a .44, and I don't think either of those are getting through to him anytime soon. I get it, we lost, but there's got to be something better than...this.
Come on Mara, we're trying to help you here. I know the situation's bad, but there's no point in losing hope now. It's all some of us have left.
If you think Alda's in a bad mood right now, you've not ever spent any time with her. I can assure you that Alda's being an absolute fucking peach right now. But if you keep pushing her, she'll pitch a real tantrum all over you. Probably with that cat o'nine tail.
Just a little nervous is all.
Wow, um, you really don't look too well. Is there anything that I can do to help?
It didn't take a lot. Not really.
—Deanna Hull, BDA
Im not one of them, Juhan. Im not, Im not, Im not.
—Maynard Francis Hurst
But you must be an angel. You saved me. You saw, we were nothing but nice to her, polite. We offered to help her and she tried to kill me.
And you can forget about me touching yours. I'm done with helping other people and their medical needs. That shit's gross and none of you are ever grateful.
This is... was someone who helped me a lot. She travelled with me for quite a while, and I guess the island was too much for her, too, but... I- I didn't think I'd be the one outliving the other.
I've been trying to make this fucking bullshit end,
No. (...) You can look me in the eyes and shoot me.
I think you'd want to seriously get out of here if you're still alive at this point. I doubt anyone is completely innocent at this point. I'm not, and I'm not going to act like I'm that much morally superior compared to people like Hansel.
The most important... the most important thing right now is sticking together... right?
Don't worry, we're not friends, She said, half distracted as she rifled through the kit, But that doesn't mean we can't work together, because as much I hate hate to admit it, and I'm sure you do too, we're not gonna get far alone. Take off your shirt,
God, I need a latte.
Everythings going to be alright Miles.
Pfft, some friend. He attacked me. Hit me in the back of the head with a chair. Decided I was past redemption, I guess... That hypocrite.
—Makatala "Kam" So'oialo
Mistakes get made. The show resumes either way, you know?
—Leona Van Kamp
They're gone, Ian. Everybody's gone.
Bella, don't worry. No matter what happens, we're always going to be there for each other. I promise.
Made a bit of a mess, havent you?
But now that you're here, I... God, you have no idea how glad I am to see that you're okay. I mean, I've been looking all over for...
That was a joke. I know I'm not very good with jokes.
P-Parley, parley! STOP! STOOOOOP!
Treating it like it's a god damn toy,(...) Pointing it for no god damn reason.(...) Stupid shit.
If you think Im just going to sit around here and wait for someone to sneak up with the intentions of killing me then you've got another thing coming. If were not hunters then were prey, and I tell you now Im not gonna fucking be the prey.
"I know that wasn't exactly the most badass thing I've ever done, but it would have been nice to at least get some, like, pathetic "You tried!" medal!"
—Michael Mitchellson, BDA note
No. We don't follow.
They're killers.(...) Most of them will keep killing. I'm... I'm going to try and kill them first. ...Sorry. I... I... I should have said it first, but... but I needed to know.'
Don't move, cowboy.
Did he really just do that?
Look, I'm not in a good mood. I was held at gunpoint yesterday after running into the most prolific killer in this goddamn place. I don't fucking need to deal with you 'having a problem' but being too much of a goddamn pussy to put together a cogent sentence.
My biggest problem looks like a cowboy,(...) But this is just a little favor. If you see him, or if it comes down to it and you've got one last choice to make it the end, just remember which of us didn't really want to shove you off. That good?
— Katarina "K.K." Konipaski
I can't go back! I CAN'T GO BACK!
So, Looks like this is it, huh?
I'm alive. You're not. That's the only definition of better that matters.
I hate Disneyland.
—Amaranta "Mara" Montalvo
As she fell, she realized that she truly, truly, didn't want to die.
—Jennifer Su note
Be careful, you guys! See you around!
I don't suppose I've ever thought about it... Peacefully, I guess.
Hey, it's really great that you're here. There's something that I've really gotta tell you.(..)Seriously, you don't know how great it is that we found you.
Cris, please,(..) Don't go...God, don't leave me here, please...
—Abigail "Abby" Floyd
Can't say I've ever gotten along with people who define 'intelligent' as 'agreeing with me', 'specially if you're trying to argue that obviously we should all be bashing each other's heads in right now.
—Harold Porter, BDA
I'm not making it out of this.
We could try to protect ourselves. Try to outlast the other persons, until we're the only ones left? I don't know, Clarice.
We are not going to die. Im going to make sure of it.
You and your goddamn good cop/bad cop routine! I mean, I'm the stupid bitch here? I'm not the one pointing fucking guns at people!
P-Please ... don't ...
Sorry. (..) Just my silly attempt to try and stay sane, try and use gallows humour for its intended purpose.
—Bradley Floyd, BDA
I do not give a shit about any of that. (...) Why is this so hard to understand? I dont want company, I dont want to hang out with you or Danny or anyone else right now, and I dont care if you think youre going to hurt me or not.
—Sanford "Sandy" Bricks
Not today, bitch. And especially not to you.
Mitch pondered on a solution, a way out. He knew an answer early on, but the bar he needed to jump was not one of figuring, but of bravery. Or was it cowardice
—Mitch Settles note
Well, you know. Gotta see the humor in things, right?
Shut uuuup. I don't wanna start shit... Unless of course you want to...
I'm not a total loser. Only a partial loser.
—Caleb Diamond, BDA
Plus, you're a bitch.
Were not even Bonnie and Clyde. Were probably closer to Bert and Ernie than anything.
I said there're things that've happened that you're not telling us, and what I went on to say is that's your business. I don't trust you, I don't need to. Ain't no need for it to be a big deal: I wouldn't trust half our teachers as far as I could spit them, but I still sit in their classes every day.
—Tessa Mabel Cole
That's terror. Life ending just like that. All this shows is that teenagers can be shitty people too.
—Wayne Cox, BDA
Haven't eaten all day which is, you know, yeah kinda sucky. Mind if I borrow some protein bars or something? (...) Not borrow, really, but uh, yeah, eat. And then, later, you know. I assume you don't want them back! But no seriously. (...) That sound okay? I'm a little desperate.
I know were all going to (...) Die, can't we all just spend our last days in peace?
Not a threat, I promise.
I don't really have a plan right now and I want to find anything useful around here that I can. I can help you look for your girlfriend for a bit.
Treat it like... your child, I guess.
Your worst fuckin' nightmare, bitch!
All we do is play roles. (...) We've been kids and students all our lives. Now they want us to be killers.
—Taranis "Tara" Behzad, BDA
Don't you fucking dare to perceive a fat, green-haired nerd as a threat that needs to be taken out with this bullshit weapon.
—Darius Van Dyke
I've can only handle so much at once, and I'm not going to be able to babysit you all the time to make sure you still care that murder is wrong.
I never thought any of us could do something like that.
It wasn't Trav because you only make a shitload of noise if you don't care about people knowing where you are, or are too stupid to work out that everyone will know where you are. And you only don't care because you want to bait people in to jump them, or want attention. So again, are either stupid or a psycho. Trav isn't. It's not Trav.
If you absolutely have to threaten my life, I'd prefer that you address me while you do it. Why, it almost seems like you don't care about me. That hurts!
All of you equally needed to be judged. Not just you, Al. Alvaro, Brendan, Isabel, Nancy, others that I'm sure that I am forgetting. Even people who will kill in the next days or so. You all deserved to never go home.
Its been fun. But Ive got places to be. Im not gonna see you again. (...) Good luck. If anyone needs it, its gonna be you.
I wouldn't try to reassert some control on the situation by taking it out on others. (...) It sounds like a dangerous way of thinking.
To be honest, exploring would probably be the closest thing to 'fun' that we could make of this place.
Jeremy are you giving up already?
I know it looks weird, but I wasn't 'sneaking around' or anything...
Then (...) Then Id make you.
Because they say my name every day. Then, when I die, whether it's tomorrow or a week from now, they'll remember who I was.
—Nancy Kyle, BDA
Some dumb kids trying to play pretend. I tried to be the hero, and it just didn't work. I tried though, I tried my hardest, and even that wasn't enough.
How can people like her... (...) How can they be...real.
Look. If I don't come back, get out of Kingman. (...) Just...don't let this ruin you.
I like to think of myself as someone who is friendly to all people, and that includes you two.
Are you gonna wander around this island like 'lalalalalalala' some more and then die because some crazy kid finally shoots you?
—Kaitlyn Greene, BDA
You enter this place, you survive this long, and you will not admit what is expected of you? What is required of you? (...) Survival of the Fittest. Say it with me. And we must aspire to fitness. We must be stronger and better than the others. We must be better than this.
As you said you've got people back at home waiting for you, probably plans too if you do get out of here (...) Me? I've got nothing, furthest I've come up with is drinking myself to death because I'm dramatic like that, specially since the original plan got fucked.
—William "Will" McKinley
NOT TODAY SATAN! note
Look around you hero wannabe, all the people you may have seen sleeping in class, laughing together or getting straight A's are now killing each other. This is hell. And here we're all condemned to live and die as monsters no matter how hard we try.
You want to fight me? Come on then! I'll make sure to add you to the body pile!
Hey Alan. I'm Leaving's friend, Also Leaving.
Yeah. I used to think words were simple. Times change, but I guess even if speakings no longer easy... If there are no words left to describe all this shit that's been dumped on us, well. We have to try. (...) And if we have to ramble to convince others, that's what we have to do.
—Jeremiah "Jerry" Fury
Whys it so easy for you?
I dont think either of us are going to live through this, so we may as well make the most of our time here, right?
—Jeremy Frasier, BDA
Sorry. Look, if you don't need help, I'll just leave, and then you can just get right back to dying.
Is there anything you want to do with your life now? Anything at all?
—Georgia Lee Day
I-I could care less if they did it out of jealousy or hatred or any-any other kind of passion. They all pose the same danger. And we're not thinking about how to protect and defend against that danger, which is all that truly matters here. Killers will kill. And if we die, we die. It's irrelevant whether or n-not we know about their mistakes and motivations and whatnot.
I mean, it'd certainly deal them a massive blow if their whole 'every teenager's a monster' narrative was disproven, certainly.
If youre going to go and kill like, half a dozen people, you can at least show a little fucking commitment either way.
Yes, we would be better than her. She's likely trying to kill us, for the crime of being around her. We're just trying to not die. At this rate, if I stepped on her neck while she was sleeping, it would be still self defense, because if she saw us moving away from her, she'd kill us dead.
But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all? note
—Benjamin Lichter, BDA
... So you're playing judge, jury and executioner. (...) Did you even bother to ask him? (...) Ask him why he killed? Or did you just 'forget' to ask before you knocked him out?
Actually I think we all kinda suck at this.
—Aiden Slattery, BDA
I'm sorry, OK, I'm sorry for, for blaming you, but don't, don't do anything like that, don't leave, I'm sorry, don't.
I wish I had a more exciting story to tell. Maybe one where I was caught by some big killer, and had to beg for my life, or use my wits to escape. But... well, considering where we are, I think I'm okay being boring for now.
Hey, (...) You're with friends. We're not doing much, but we're doing our best.
Didn't know why I did it. Didn't kill 'im, and I couldn't tell you why there neither. (...) Been making up reasons ever since. Dunno if any of 'em are right. But it means I gotta ask...when you find her, is it really gonna matter what she tells ya? (...) Or are you just gonna do whatever you feel like you gotta do, and figure out why you did it later?
—Tyler "Ty" Yazzie
I never want to hurt you either Kay. You've been so nice to me, even now. I don't even deserve any of it.
Look, just be safe and promise me you won't do anything that you'll regret. You sound like a nice person and I don't want you to lose that, okay? (...) If we meet again. Just call my name and I know that it will be you.... I'll see you again.
... The idea is in a normal terrorist attack, we would have all died instantly. (...) We would all... we'd already be dead. And I think that we should all be able to just... accept that. (...) It sucks, I know it does. But it happens. We aren't any more special than anyone else. We don't deserve to live more than anyone else.
Okay, uh... I guess I can stay with you guys (...) Um... if you're all right with it, I mean.
Why couldn't he just die? Why did he have to open his dumb mouth?
What about it, Al!? You let all the murder out yet? Just took five people for you to finally start feeling bad!? (...) Too little, too late, buddy. You had your chance, and it was at number zero.
You're smarter than me, Ray, and it makes no fuckin' sense to be conductin' this as a democracy, yeah? My vote shouldn't count for as much as yours, not for half as much, and I'm not saying that as a compliment or 'cause I have low self esteem or what the fuck ever, I'm saying that because I wanna fucking live, okay? I'll back you up a hundred percent, but for us to get through this, you have to take charge here, yeah?
They want us to kill each other. You think it matters how right we are?
Maybe before we go tomorrow, we could set this place on fire? That'd be fun, right? Unless you wanna' stay here longer, I'm cool with that too.
Pain's one of those things in life, I found, that's going to find you no matter what. And if I learned anything here, it's that I can't go through the rest of my life being afraid to get hurt.
—Coleen Reagan, BDA
I'm not a monster.
Even if no one listens or cares at first, and even when anybody who could have recognized their names is gone, it's still there, y'know?
I call this place Spiderland, (...) In my head. I hated thinking the island this and the island that. Makes me feel stupid saying it now, but, hey, it's something, that I did, to rationalize this place with myself, I guess, or something, I dunno.
It's a right little tragedy. Bad things happen to good people because good people do bad things to good people.
Ill show you safe zone.
The stupidest thing is I don't care anymore either! I don't think about you when you're not around. I haven't thought about our relationship in forever. You treated me like a boring, ugly piece of shit, but I adulted up and got the fuck over it! And now you, you wanna stand here and tell me that you want closure?
Cleaning up isn't the term I'd use.
...We can't let him go, he'll just kill again. (...) "Mom, Dad, Jordan. (...) I'm so sorry, please don't watch this.
There are still people out there, there are still friends out there. It's not too late.
She probably won't (...) I mean, unless we get rescued.
I want to pretend I'm some insane psycho killer on the hunt for people who wronged me or something, but I'm not. I'm just... me.
This goes on any longer, and I have to pick between my life and someone else's, and I'm not doing that. I'm not letting these people make me do that.
—Vincenzo/a Gatti, BDA
Whatever happens, happens.
I don't wanna be a loser, Nate. I've been a loser my entire life. That's about it.. I mean, I don't wanna win because I want to get a job or get married or go to college. (...) I just want to win because that's good enough. Just winning, you know? Making someone else lose. Living when everyone else died, even if it's for a second. That's good enough.
I'm tired of it all too. At this point, I don't think there's much dancing around it: we're all doing exactly what those terrorists wanted. We tried to be better, but we aren't. I don't think anyone could last more than a week here if they weren't willing to do bad things.
—Alba Reyes, BDA
I think I'm going to hell.
—Kimiko Kao note
I know it's scary and I understand. But it's real. And the sooner you accept it, the sooner we can do something about it.
Its not its not gonna get any easier, is it? But we cant just, um give up because of that, can we? Well well find a way.
It's a stupid name, Survival of the Fittest. (...) It's a misappropriation of a scientific term. If this was about the fittest, we'd all be equally armed to start, so we'd adapt. And I mean, in the real situation we'd reproduce but nobody here is thinking about babies I'd bet.
I'm not even sure what it is that's wrong with how we're doing things. I mean, we're still living, but we meander about, stumble across people and stumble away just as quickly... it's like we're just kinda there.
Whats the point of being the last one alive, just to say that you were?
So I'll offer you this chance to kill me. I won't talk back, or complain, or whine, or do some sort of shitty morale posturing. Because frankly at this point I'm as tired of it as you are. The only thing I'll do is... shooting back.
Heres a secret, Dot: theres no such thing as dying honorably. Having a good death is something we made up to make ourselves feel better, because no matter who you are, what you have, or where youre going, youre going alone and youve paved the road yourself. Dying isnt what matters; its how you live.
