[Heavy static]
[Sounds of cutlery and distant dog barks]

  • Vidic: All right... notes towards a speech in honor of Dr. Aileen Bock's premature... retirement. When I first learned of Dr. Bock's unfortunate accident, I couldn't help but feel a great sense of loss at... No... Doctor Aileen Bock has and always will be a friend and colleague. When I first learned of her unfortunate accident, I was shocked of course. To see any friend injured in such a way is deeply upsetting. And to further learn that her injuries were severe enough to force a premature conclusion to her brilliant career... well, I would not wish that fate on anyone. But if... if there is any solace to be found in her accident, it may be this: that she was injured in service of her research... in service of work that she cherished most dearly. And it is thanks to her... it is due to her diligence, that some of the mysteries of genetic memory have been further illuminated. And while it is true that work on her project – the Surrogate Initiative, as she called it – has been temporarily halted, the copious amount of work she has done over the past three years has been incredibly valuable... so, while her work has been suspended for the time being, her legacy will most certainly... live on.

[Sound of distant dog barks]

  • Vidic: Quiet, Joan! Quiet!

[Dog stops barking]
