ARCHER: You must be very proud.
REPTILIAN: His name will go down in history. It will be spoken with reverence, a testament to the superiority of the cold-blooded.
ARCHER: I'll bet you didn't know this, but at one time most of my world was ruled by reptiles.
REPTILIAN: I wasn't aware of that
ARCHER: A comet hit, around sixty-five million years ago. Caused a mass extinction. Most of the reptiles died out. Mammals became the dominant species.
REPTILIAN: How unfortunate.
ARCHER: Still, the reptiles might have come out on top if it hadn't been for a slight disadvantage.
REPTILIAN: And what was that?
ARCHER: They had brains the size of a walnut. That's very small. Apparently it's a constant in the universe.
REPTILIAN: (trying very hard not to throttle him there and then) Earth vessels. How many?
ARCHER: The reptiles didn't all die out. Some evolved into snakes, alligators, turtles. As a matter of fact one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco makes the most wonderful turtle soup. You should try it sometime if you're ever in the area.
REPTILIAN: You want me to kill you?
ARCHER: I'm just making conversation. Relaying a few interesting facts about the world you're trying to destroy.
REPTILIAN: I'll reciprocate with an interesting fact of my own: we know exactly where your ship is.
ARCHER: Is that so?
REPTILIAN: When we lost contact with our lunar outpost, we scanned the vicinity and discovered it hiding. Unless you tell me exactly what I want to know I'll dispatch a squadron right now. No more conversation? I hope you had a chance to say goodbye to your crew.
ARCHER: All right, but I'll only talk to Degra.
REPTILIAN: I don't know who that is.
ARCHER: He's building your weapon. Ring a bell now?
