If it had worked, it would have been marketed all over North America. But the campaign failed and the drug failed, because it had a side effect on the unborn children. An invisible side effect.
    Vale: It created scanners.


  • Vale: Ephemerol. Ephemerol is creating new scanners.

    Vale: She scanned you??
    Kim: No, not her. Her child. Her unborn child scanned me.


  • Vale: [after Ruth reveals to Vale that he's a scanner] You called me a scanner. What is that?
