OTTOMAN CAPTAIN: “The Russians are burning a path from the east and they’ll be here soon. Let’s see how you fare with them, Dr Woodruff. They’re savages. You Americans and Europeans whether you come here to help or to fight or to make a profit, you’ll never be anything but insignificant… when your countries were still swamps and forests, culture had already lit up our lands for thousands of years. And when you’re nothing but history, collapsed into darkness like Rome, like Greece...we’ll still be here. (CLICKS TONGUE)”
