BARRET: Shinra! %$@!
TIFA: Mako materia SOLDIER Shinra.
BARRET: %#$%#! Damn!
TIFA: Midgar Sephiroth Shinra. Mako Planet life-force.
[TIFA waves her arms expressively.]
[CLOUD waves his arms in a way that expresses nothing.]
BARRET: #%@&! AVALANCHE Jenova! Promised Land. Midgar &$#@!!!!!!!!
[CLOUD slowly walks in an arbitrary direction, pauses, then walks back to his original place. He raises his arms, then lowers them, and places his head in his palm. He shakes his head, as if to say, "..."]

CLOUD: Mako Shinra. Midgar Sephiroth.
[BARRET and TIFA walk into CLOUD. The platform shakes. CLOUD falls. Fade to black.]
CLOUD: Materia Jenova... Sephiroth.
[Fade to a slum made. Buildings are made from sheets of discarded metal. The ground is dust with no traces of plant life. Neon lights are everywhere. A MAN walks east, then west, then east again, repeating this cycle for the duration of his existence, pausing only to wave his arms and say, "Shinra Mako inn potion!" when interrupted by strangers.]
AERIS: I have a bodyguard. Planet.
[The party runs out of the desolate neon slum in search of the next steamy, industrial tower lit by blue lights.]
