Transcription

[[Trudy and Esther Matusevitch are sitting at a small fire, in a small cavern deep inside the space creature. They both look like they're covered in dried goop. Trudy's hair is uncharacteristically flattened. The camera looks across the fire.]]
Trudy: I think we got a bit too close to his "inventory" when we were almost "inducted".
Esther: Ah... the banquet...

[[The camera position revolves one-sixth of the way clockwise around Trudy and Esther, but their expressions remain unchanged.]]
Esther: We did a lot of that. We shipped the aliens -- frozen to disguise and protect them -- all over the country, then held events to induct unsuspecting clients, partners, vendors...

[[The camera position revolves another one-sixth of the way clockwise around Trudy and Esther, so that Esther now appears on the right and we are looking at her over Trudy's shoulder.]]
Esther: Through government contracts, we infiltrated both civilian and military targets. And we were far from his only distributors. Lionel had dozens of partners all over the world...

[[The camera position revolves another one-sixth of the way around them, so that we're looking at Esther's and Trudy's backs. Trudy turns her head to look at Esther, whose head remains forward.]]
Trudy: Just how many...?
Esther: By now? Millions. They're _everywhere_, Trudy. He's handed them the whole blasted planet...
