Beck: You're a scientist, Shaw, not a murderer. You can help programs instead of helping to destroy them.
Shaw: I can't help these programs anymore than you can!
Tron: A massive power upgrade of speed and agility. If this weapon had been on its way to Tessler, its forces would've been insurmountable.
Beck: So I did good?
Tron: What about the scientist? The idea was to bring him in alive!
Beck: He attacked me. I tried to save him, but I couldn't.
Tron: Then this prototype is all that's left of the technology. If General Tessler believes this was destroyed, it should but us some time.
Beck: To do what?
Tron: Destroy it.
Beck: How do we do that?
Tron: Know any easily accessible high-powered energy welders?
Beck: If only we knew someone who worked at a garage. Wait. I work at a garage.
Tron: This weapon is far more dangerous than you know, Beck. Destroy it immediately.
Beck: When are you ever not serious?
Don't worry. I'll take care of it, I promise.
(sees smoke from afar) Looks like trouble.
Hang on. I'll get you out.
Come on, let's go.
(realizes it was a trap) On second thought, I'll go.
Paige: You have something that belongs to me.
Beck: You want it? Come get it!
Paige: I was hoping you'd say that.
Hopper: Time's up, Zed. Where the tank?
Zed: Able's working on it. You know--finishing touches.
Hopper: We need it now.
Zed: That's great, but lasty I checked, we don't work for you.
Hopper: Wrong again, Zed. Because we're here as representatives of Tessler's army.
Beck: That's funny. I don't see any Tessler. And I certainly don't see any army.
Zed: Beck, I can handle this.
Beck: If I were you, I'd leave before things get embarrassing.
Hopper: You know what's embarrassing--how fast you're gonna hit the ground. The two of us versus one of you.
Beck: Wow, Hopper.
I had no idea you could count that high.
(slams Hopper into the ground and almost derezzes him) You're right. That was embarrassing.
Mara: Beck, don't!
What is wrong with you?
You could've seriously hurt them!
Hopper: Just wait until Tessler hears about this!
Zed: Gee, thanks a lot, Beck.
Beck: What's your problem?
Zed: You should've let me handle it. instead, you made me look like a coward in front of Mara!
Beck: I didn't make you look like anything.
And if you don't want people to think you're a coward, then stop acting like one!
Tessler: I see my tank has arrived. Assemle a team for an inspection.
Pavel: Right away, sir.
Beck: You want to know what I see? I see a coward... hiding behind minions and lackeys.
Tessler: I'm not the one dressing up, hiding behind the memory of a dead program!
Garage program 2: Finally. I thought this shift would never end.
Garage program 1: If Able asks me to pull another double--
Garage program 2: (sees Albe injured) Able! Come on, help me get him inside!
Garage program 1: Zed! Mara! Able's been hurt!
Mara: Oh! Is he alright?
How did this happen?
Able: (weakly) Tron.
Mara: He did this?
Able: No. He was trying to take out Tessler. There was an explosion and Tron saved me.
Zed: Sound to me like the Renegade almost got you killed!
Zed: What?! This guy's no Tron. He's a menace! And it's only a matter of time before we all end up casualties just like Able--or worse.
Guard: We've searched the ship, sir. No sign of him anywhere.
Pavel: Perhaps, General, it's time to try a new approach. Rather than draw out the Renegade using soldiers, which didn't quite work out so well for Paige, might I recommend using some other form of bait?
Innocent programs, sir--hostages.
Tessler: And where will we find these hostages?
Bartik: Sir, I believe we have a suggestion.
Pavel: Greetings, programs. By orders of General Tessler, this garage and everyone in it now belongs to the government. Consider yourselves prisoners of war.
Tron: I thought I told you to get rid of the weapon. You lied to me! If Tessler hadn't recovered it--
Beck: But he didn't.
Tron: You got lucky.
Beck: Luck's got nothing to do with it. I took care of him on my own.
Tron: Listen to yourself. That weapon is poison, Beck.
And now, because of you, Tessler's ready to derez everyone in that garage until you turn it over.
And he won't stop there.
Beck: Then help me. Please. I can use it to save my friends. Teach me how to control it--
Tron: You can't!
You have to destroy it.
Beck: No. I need it.
Tron: Then your friends are already dead.
This kind of power comes at a price, Beck.
If you won't destroy it, I will.
Beck: (realizes how bad the weapon was making him) I-I didn't mean...
Tron: Now do you see why it needs to be destroyed?
I chose you for a reason, Beck.
You're strong--buth physically and mentally.
Now prove it.
Pavel: Did't anyone ever tell you?
Never leave your valuables unattended.
My my my... How the mighty have fallen!
I've always been smarter than you. But now I'm faster... and stronger... now I'm indestructible!
