Quotes from Richard Portnow's Characters

    1. David Mills: Has he tried to speak or communicate in any way?
    2. Dr. Beardsley: Even if his brain were not mush, which it is, he chewed off his own tongue long ago.
    3. William Somerset: Uh... Doc, is there absolutely no chance that he might survive?
    4. Dr. Beardsley: Detective, he'd die of shock right now if you were to shine a flashlight in his eyes. He's experienced about as much pain and suffering as anyone I've encountered, give or take... and he still has hell to look forward to. Good night.
