Go on, quote the whole thing. I know you're... dying to.

Just mostly dying to, that's all.

My copy of the book is at home, so I'll go with the movie quote from IMDb:

Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.

Inigo Montoya: What's that?

Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

I love that movie, every scene is quotable. The one right after the mostly dead scene has one of my favorites.

Miracle Max (to Inigo Montoya): So, you were probably playing cards and he cheated-

Valerie: Liar. Liar! Liaaaaaarrrrr!

Miracle Max: Get back witch!

Valerie: I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!


Reminds me of my grandparents arguing.

If at least one of revivals doesn't announce that they want to go for a walk, I will be disappointed.

Is anyone else getting a bad feeling about this?
[spoilers]Lots of corpses.

Some killed post-mortem with head wounds with no apparent utility.

1000s of them resurrected on a small ship.

Explosion which killed them unknown cause.

What do you kill by shooting in the head, and is worth blowing up your spacecraft to stop?

It's ten months to Schlocktober. While some storylines have definitely run that long, I don't think that's the case.
Also, we've already done zombies, and these nanny packages were specifically de-milled to prevent them from being taken over.

I guess we could be up for Space Vampires, next. We've already had a ghost story and a zombie plague.
