Lex won't have anything to do with pharmaceuticals now. In studying medicine, he used to help manufacture the elixirs that precede the termination procedures, among other things.

We live encapsulated by the trains. They go around in a perfect oval at all hours, stopping for thirty-five seconds in each section So the commuters are able to board and depart. Beyond the tracks, after the fence, there's sky. Engineers crafted a scope so they can see the ground below us. We can see tall buildings and other sorts of trains--some of which disappear underground or rise onto bridges. We can see patches of cities and towns that appear like one of Lex's blankets.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
