Annie:...But it will get you killed. I wouldn't repeat this to anyone if I were you.
(Annie looks at each of them as if to say she'd kill them each herself if they repeat any of this.)
Annie: Like I said this is about vengence. I'm sure all of you probably are aware that when Lab Rat #213 was -
Louise: Her name's Amari.
Annie: Shutup. I'm talking. And this isn't about her; it's about me. When the rat started doing fairly well, my parents got into a disagreement about DeGenEx's moral standing - a disagreement that ending with my mother putting a bullet in my father's head.
Louise and James: You're out to get Cable?
Tieg: It's a little more than just wanting to get even with her mother. Amari getting out. Her being found. That wasn't exactly an accident.
Louise: What...what do you mean?
Annie: He means the rat was let out intentionally. I intentionally let her out. And I might have also intentionally tipped off a certain man hell-bent on burning down places associated with DeGenEx. I might have gone so far as to start on of those fires.
James: But you're not against the Lab Rat project....
Annie (irritated): No! It's not about her. I've told you it's about me. Why would I start those fires just days before letting the rat out? Oh I don't know, to create a chaos situation? To distract Cable?
James: Couldn't you have just - shot - Cable and called it good?
Annie (standing): Oh you don't know anything about vengence! You don't understand it.
Annie (calmer): Of course I really couldn't expect you two to understand. My point is I need you two, so lay low and don't do anything stupid or I will kill you both with my bare hands.
Tieg: Annie, maybe we should go now.
Annie (nodding): Yeah let's go.
(Annie follows Tieg out the door. Once they've left James and Louise look at each other.)
Louise: What have we gotten ourselves into?
James: I...I don't know. But Annie just then....She sounded like Cable.
(Meanwhile in the hall)
Tieg: Annie, you've got to watch your temper. We don't want another incident right?
(There's a pause.)
Annie: I'm taking off now alright. I got to try and meet up with...you know.
Tieg: As yourself?
Annie: Of course not.
