Bruce Gallatin:
What are the chances of something like that happening way the hell out here in the middle of nowhere?



Joe Huxley:
Nowhere? Ha-ha-ha! There's no "nowhere" anymore. You're sitting right next to the Whiteman Air Force Base right now. That's about 150 Minuteman Missile silos spread halfway down the State of Missouri. That's... an awful lot of bullseyes.

Stephen Klein:
You can't see it... you can't feel it... and you can't taste it. But it's here, right now, all around us. It's going through you like an X ray. Right into your cells. What do you think killed all these animals?

Julian French:
We tried hooking up an auxiliary pump up to a backup generator, and we're still only getting a trickle.



Dr. Sam Hachiya:
I don't understand. Did they burn out?



Dr. Austin:
They could have been subject to the EMP effects.



Dr. Russell Oakes:

Dr. Austin:

When a large nuclear device is airburst at high altitude, a lot of electrical disruption can be created, principally with radios, communication systems, electrical wires, computers, cars, transistors. Of course, it's all theoretical. It's never happened before. In short, very little electricity.



Dr. Sam Hachiya:
Forever?
