Mr. Hyde: Think before you decide, I tell you! Do you want to be left as you are, or do you want your eyes and your soul to be blasted by a sight that would stagger the devil himself?


Dr. Lanyon: You're a rebel, and see what it has done for you. You're in the power of this monster that you have created.
