I have played C:47 and Ortmeyer was repeating all the time about the "Power of 47 chromosomes"...never said 48 chromosomes or stuff....
He only mentions 48 once. (Line 3)
The return of the prodigal son - now this calls for a celebration! Heeeeere's Daddy! Welcome home!
I gave you the best start in life - perfect genes! You are a perfect diamond, but it would seem that there's still a bit of grinding to do, before you're finished!
You little ingrate! I should have known you would rebel against your old man - not at all like No. 48. Now there's a loyal and trusting clone.
- Loyal, trusting and dead.
Man was made at the end of the week's work, when God was tired. I greatly improved on all of the built-in flaws. I'll prove to the whole world who's right - and decide who will be left! A little play on the words there, my boy - I know you like that sort of thing.
- He thinks he's bigger than god. And look what happened to the last guy who said that.
Son - I hope you know that this will hurt me more than you. The effort to make you! Every little manipulated gene! Oh, you we're so pampered! You are the apotheosis of Man. When I created you, I was standing on the shoulders of midgets. But I ironed out all the wrinkles - and still you turn on me!
I discovered the true power of 47 chromosomes. Do you think that was easy? As always, I was ahead of my time. They shook their bony little heads, looked at me with their beady little eyes and said I was crazy. You, my friend, are the living proof I'm not!
- No, no. I think the bony head, beady eyed guys were right.
I know you want me dead, my boy, and I forgive you! But let me tell you - dying is the last thing I plan to do! You wouldn't believe what my experiments with recombinant DNA have made possible!
It's such a comfort to see you working so perfectly - I knew I was on the right track. I will close this chapter, and turn a fresh page! You have problems with subordination, and we can't have that, can we?
I have the power to create life, to mold, tailor and perfect humans - do you have any idea of the potential - no mushy sentiments, no quirky traits – and no betrayal! - DO YOU HEAR ME?
- He always has to have the last word.
If you only knew what painstaking research went into this project. I had a clear vision of it - but you look into the sun, and all you see is darkness! I had to shed new light, erase all previous scientific knowledge in this field. I was setting new standards - don't you understand?
I was almost worried, but I knew you would not let me down!
That boy was such a disappointment - I am so happy I still have you!
You have proved to be my favorite son - I'm so proud of you!
- That's how you raised me - always follow through what you begin!
I have lost one son - but you can more than replace him, thank God!
Y-you... I... I should ha-have known. I-I-I didn't even recognize m-my own son. Y-you broke my heart, my son. W-what good is a b-bullet proof vest, when death strikes from within?
