"Good Lord All Mighty! But this is hot work!"
"Work? Drudgery is more like it!
"I wonder how Rizpah and Philistia made out?"
"Huh! From what I've heard, none of them did any too well!"
"Pandora is the only one they've taken back alive ..."
"And she thinks that things might have gone easier for them all
"Pandora is entitled to her opinion of course ...
"And little Christianna was stabbed in the chest entertaining some prison official inside the walls of the compound!"
"Yeah! And then Lissa took one in the gut while the others were making their escape!"
"And Susannah ... She was the Cell Block Representative, wasn't she?"
"I think she was ... Yes!"
"Well she was knifed while trying to plead with the Warden to be merciful ... Of all things!"
"Our guys sure are fond of their knives, aren't they?
"Three of them got outside the wall one way of another!
"So Bert was knifed too?"
"I don't know for sure ... But I shouldn't wonder if she was!"
"Rizpah! I'm exhausted! I can't run another step!"
"The prison guards were right behind us, Philitia!"
"Then it's a good thing that each of us has a knife then, isn't it?"
"We can whip our weight in wildcats, Rizpah!
"There are too many of them, Philitia!
"They take a knife very similar to this one ..."
"They slice her open ...
You recall the mess they made of Ursala a year ago, don't you?"
"What I might suggest instead ...
"And then upon the count of three ..."
"I thrust my blade through your navel and into your belly!"
"Yes, Philistia ... But please bear in mind ..."
"... That I will be doing the very same to you!"
"Uh ... I'm not so sure I'm totally in favor of your idea, Rizpah!"
"Well then, Philistia ...
"I only know that for my part, I would prefer to die at the hand of a friend ...
"... By some uncaring prison trustee ...
"So! Time is a-wasting!
"God! But this hurts, Rizpah!"
"Just relax, Philistia!
"You stabbed me!
"Did you really think I was kidding you all this time, Philistia?"
"I can tell now that you really meant it, Rizpah!
"I can't quite believe that we actually did it, Philistia!"
"But we did it, kid!
"Okay now ...
"They say it can take you a long time to die with a belly wound ..."
"And that it's better if we leave the knives where they are!"
"But then that raises the question ..."
"What question is that, Rizpah?"
"Does either one of us really want to live any longer than we have to?"
"If we did, Rizpah ...
"In that case ...
"By pulling these knives from our bellies!"
"You know, Philistia ..?"
"Know what, Rizpah?"
"I'm still trying to decide ..."
"... Whether it was better to die this way ..."
"... Or at the hands of those Oafs out there!"
"Well ... Hell and Damnation, Rizpah!"
"It's a little bit late in the game ..."
"... To be worried about that, isn't it?
"Lord! But I'm sorry, Philistia!"
"Sorry? For what, Rizpah?"
"Sorry to have gotten you involved in the first place!"
I knew from the start the risk we were taking, Rizpah!
"I'm glad that you feel that way, Philistia ..."
"After all is said and done ...
Moments later a pair of the prison guards discovered the last two escapees laying dead where they had expired in their trysting place.
"My God! What's happened here? What have they done?"
"Calm down now, Son.
"Well, they could've done what you said ...
"These two were Amazons, Son!
