Not only have you brought them all indoors, but you’ve trapped them two hundred and forty floors in the air. No one really knows what would happen if things go wrong. But I’m just a glorified security guard, so what the hell do I know anyway?
Zhao Ming Zhi: Mr. Sawyer, you are the very first family we’ve had in the residential section of The Pearl. After your secure the assessment, what do you think of the building?

[to Henry and Georgia]

[he looks down and nearly loses his hold as he sees how high he is]
Will Sawyer: That was dumb.
