Manhunt: UNABOMBER Season 1 Episode 2: "Pure Wudder" Quotes
I want to send you. It's one month. You go out there, build a profile and come back to the BAU with a big gold star.McAlpine
Fitz: You're saying this is from him, the Unabomber?
Genelli: His most recent letter. Fifty FBI agents have been going over that letter with a fine tooth comb for two weeks. Not one of them saw the emordnilap. Not even me. I've had profilers working on this thing for 15 years, and we're right back where we started. I need somebody that sees things differently, and like it or not, that is you.
Fitz: What forensic leads do we have?
Cole: Basically, we have no forensic leads, no DNA, no prints.
Fitz: That's not much to go on.
Fitz: This is why they need us. The profile is going to focus the entire search. It's a big responsibility, yeah? It's exciting, right?
Now you could spend six months coming up with the world's most accurate profile, but that's not what we're looking for. We're looking for 15 pages, no typos, and wood and we want to take it to the press next week. Now I understand that you're a brilliant guy, I do. McAlpine says that you can find all kinds of stuff hidden in letters, and that's great. Now take the Unabomber letters and find wood, OK? Because right now, all that's required of you is obedience. Understand?Cole
Did you ever think that the reason you haven't gotten him in 17 years is because you've been underestimating him?Fitz
Fitz: Seventeen years the Unabomber has been trying to say something with these bombs, trying to send a message, and when he lays it out, everything he's been trying to tell us, you don't want to take the time to read it?!
Cole: We're dealing with a major airport shut down here. So type it out on a three-page synopsis, clean, no typos, and we'll try to take a look.
Fitz: What's pure wood?
Meeks: Pure Aryan peckerwood. There ain't no jungle bunny blood in these veins.
Fitz: Thicker than wudder, right.
Meeks: Where the hell you from? Who talks like that? You all hear that? "Wudder." Christ.
Dude, have you read this? In the manifesto. 'In the modern society, all that is required is obedience.' Isn't that exactly what Cole said?Tabby
Fitz: I just don't know when I started to feel so powerless.
Natalie: We all feel that way, everyone does.
Fitz: Yeah, we all feel like that, but what do we do about it? Nothing. We like it. We like feeling trapped, crushed. I guess freedom is far more terrifying than slavery.
Natalie: There's nothing to do. That's life. We suck it up, and we live.
Fitz: But that's not life. That's sleepwalking. Watching TV, eating trash, working to become something for someone else. Nobody doesn't something, nobody even tries. Nobody except for Ted!
Natalie: Yeah, but Fitz, he's the Unabomber. He's evil.
We started in charge, but now we're slaves to our own technology.Fitz
Agent Fitzgerald, I am so glad to make your acquaintance at last.Ted
