Ugh...oh man...

Boyd: Oi! Shes alive!

Smitty: And sexy!

Woman: Oh great...

Boyd: No worries mam, we're the good guys! The US ARMY!

Woman: Really? I thought all the soldiers were dead...

Smitty: Contrary to popular belief, all soldiers ain't bad shooters. I know all the movies make us look pretty gay though.

Boyd: Mighty belittling of you lady.

Woman: I'm sorry...its just...ehhhh....

Woman: Sorry. My name is Dr. Francis Mandate....ughh....

Boyd: ...I think I heard of you...you...you were one of them doctors that worked on that program... “G.O.D.” Right?

Francis: Yes. I was one of the architects of the program itself. I wrote the source code.
