Man: How foolish... Even though paradise is right in front of you...
Angela: Real world...
Angela: I was told that the humans remaining on earth are a race from the old world that have nothing left but to be destroyed.
Dingo: Good luck or bad luck... That's what life relies on.
Man: I want to employ your assistance in this plan.
Angela: I've never not done my best. I've always...
Dingo: Didn't you regret it?
Frontier: I cannot define myself as anything else but myself.
Angela: You could have become a friend of humanity.
Dingo: Feel it with all the bones in your body!
Angela: They don't even have the basics to be similar to our biology!
Man: We won't even be able to deal with them anymore.
Text: What are the possibilities of humanity?
Dingo: Isn't that a sign of how much he liked you?
Text: What is the freedom of living?
Dingo: All of you who will get in my way, please turn back!
Angela: Even if you get serious now, it's too late!
Frontier: That is the proof of my existence.
