Men:
#1:
They thought that I would benefit greatly by selling the ship out, seeing that I was a traitor to you and all. At the time, I even agreed with them. I told them where we were headed. They worked up the guts and broke the barrier of the clouds.
#2:
The child machines. The most brilliant factory organizer designed them. The Smog Queen is what she goes by now. She was the first machine that true intelligence was given to. She thought it would be best to share that intelligence with other machines. So, she designed the machine men. They were free standing machines, they needed no outside source of power. They were free and had intelligence.

Women:
#1:
We are at the center of the world. Behold, the massive boiler that will power our armies. All it needs is your key Jareck. Here, my son. Take your timepiece and start the world anew.
#2:
Seems your dinky men only run for a few hours before they have to recharge. We caught them just at shift change. Now all your soldiers will be immobile.
