  • He's kidding, right?

  • He looks heroic, but he's kind of got a negative attitude.

Jonas Taylor: You're going to tell me your story and I'm going to say no. You're going to offer me money and I'm going to say no. You're going to try to appeal to my better nature and I'm still going to say no because I don't have one.

Dr. Minway Zhang: Thought to have been extinct for over two million years.
DJ: Wrong.

Jonas Taylor : You sure about this?
Suyin Zhang: (after nodding enthusiastically) Not really...
