Quotes
Terra: [showing her fellow Solarbabies a forbidden poetry book] ... You believe all that dog-squeeze they feed us in class? That's not the way it was. *Here's* how it used to be...

Jason: [after Darstar has stolen Bodhi, and Daniel has gone after them alone] ... Blowing this Orphanage won't be like sneaking off to the Arena. It's not gonna be 20 meters in a ditch for this one, if we get caught; it's gonna mean a Mainstream Labor Site for us.

Jason: [having found Bodhi in "Tiretown"] ... No! I said, FORGET GOING BACK.
