""Scream now, while you can still breathe." "If it had a mind, you could reason with it. If it had a face, you could look it in the eye. And if it had a body, you could shoot it." "On his 30th birthday, he's back: bigger, faster, hungrier, meaner and deadlier than before...Guess he'll have his cake and eat it too." "
