Art, Project Power, Netflix, Screen Arcade, Supermarché, Jamie Foxx“Looking for Newt.  I understand that, sir.  I’m a friend of Simon’s.  I’m from Tampa.  He sent me here to talk to you.  Maybe you wanna do some business.  Merry Christmas.  Aren’t we all?  I got a box in my hands.  You wanna see my hands, or put the box down?  What you want?  Which one?  Box down, hands up?  Okay, I’m with you.  Box down.  Yeah, slow, everything’s slow.  If you want, you can call Simon.  He’ll verify who I am.  Tell him that the Major’s here to see you.  The Major.  I wouldn’t do that.  Newt.  I don’t wanna hurt you.  I don’t wanna hurt nobody.  Just need some information, that’s all.  Tell me where you’re getting this stuff, and I’ll get out of here.  You don’t wanna talk?  All you gotta do is tell me who your supplier is.  So what you think about that, Newt, huh?  We got a deal?  Once I get that information, you can slither back to whatever hole that you came out of, understand?  Listen to my voice.  Am I lying?  Where you getting this shit from?  Who’s making it?  Tell me the source!  Tell me right now!  Who’s the supplier?  Give me one name!  You gonna tell me!  Tell me who it is!  Speak up, son!  Where’s he at?  Huh?  Where’s Biggie?  How many did you take?  Hmm.” — Art

“No, I’m fine.  You got any hot water?  I’ll take some of that.  You keep kicking around in there.  This how we gonna do this.  All that kicking ain’t making no sense.  You in a strange man’s car in an even stranger place.  But I need to have a conversation with you.  I need to be able to look– I need to be able to look you in your eye.  You don’t wanna calm down, maybe I need to make a trip over to 32 Park, right?  You know where 32 Park is?  Well, if I let you out and you start crying, I’ma pay a little visit to Irene.  Make sure she all right, huh?  I take it you love Irene ’cause you ain’t knocking no more.  So when I open this up, I want my conversation.  Why don’t we start from the beginning, make it simple?  What’s your name?  Huh?  Oh, I can’t hear you.  What is it?  Robin.  You push that Power, don’t you?  You don’t know?  Maybe you’ll figure it out, huh?  You stay in there until you figure it out.  What’s the source?  Maybe you know something about Newt.  Oh, you don’t know who Newt is?  That’s funny because Newt be all in your phone.  Well, let me tell you what’s even more weird.  Newt ain’t here no more.  So since Newt ain’t here, that leads us to… where to, huh?  Where to, Robin?  I need to know where the source is.  I said get out!  So you can advance your position in life.  Who is that?  Hmm?  Look closer, is that Biggie?  You don’t know?  Oh, you on these streets, you don’t know shit.  I know you’re scared.  I know you’re feeling like fight or flight, but I’ma tell you right now, you just breathe and get through it because listen, you don’t know who I am and what I’m about, but I got to find that source.  I need to get to the top of the food chain.  But you keep messing around with me and acting like you don’t know shit, I’m gonna knock your ass out, and then I’m gonna kill your mother.  I’ma kill Irene.  Look me in my eyes.  Am I lying?  So tell me your decision.” — Art

“Hey, I see what you doin’.  Give me this.  You do what I told you.  No messing around.  You’re gonna go meet whoever’s in there, you’re gonna tell them what we talked about.  You’re gonna tell them that you saw me and that I left.  And if they ask… you ever hear of a mine rat?  Well, that’s what you are.  You’re my mine rat.  I know what you trying to do!  You out here in these streets dealing, you ain’t no damn kid.  You gave that up.  You can’t keep playing that whole ‘I’m just a child’ card, okay?  Let’s make it happen.  I don’t work here.  You Biggie?  Talk to me.  I don’t want to talk to any middle men.  Already did that.  You don’t tell me where Biggie is, I’ll cut your fucking head off.  Hey, Robin!  You still in there?  You all right?  Don’t worry, okay?  I’m gonna come– everything’s okay.  Tracy.  Baby.  It’s so good to see you.  Cover your ears.  They’re logging Powers.  There’s chips in every capsule.  The government won’t let them test it, so they test it on us.  The people that you’re selling to, they’re the lab rats.  It’s a demonstration for potential buyers.  It means they’re done with New Orleans.  It means I’m running out of time.  I gotta go there.  You gotta take me there.  Tracy, take… Robin, I need… please.  He ODed.  I din’t kill him.  I got money.  Please.  I’m just trying– I’m just trying to find my daughter.” — Art

“You did this?  Wait, wait, wait.  Y’all work on humans?  Ah.  So what’s your power?  Come on.  You ain’t tried it?  Yeah.  Well, if you’re so spooked, why you still in the game?  What happened to getting good grades and staying in school?  Everybody needs money now.  Oh, that’s easy.  Go to the Army.  Yeah, it tripped me up.  But that was my skillset.  And what did the system do?  It took advantage of me.  But I know now I got to work the system harder than it’s working me.  That’s what you gotta do.  You’re young, you’re black, you’re a woman.  The system is designed to swallow you whole.  You gotta find out what you do better than anybody else and rock that.  So what you gonna do?  Hmm?  How you gonna leave your mark?  Oh.  I’m sorry.  Well, what’s your rap name then, huh?  What, you gonna be the next Cardi B?  Huh?  Cardi C?  Well, go ahead and spit then.  You say you rap, let me hear one line.  Huh?  You can’t spit one line?  How you gonna be a rapper if you got stage fright?  You know what I think?  Most time, people don’t wanna do something is ’cause they’re probably just wack at it.  If you wack, just say you wack.  Give you a word?  What you talking about?  Oh, you that good, huh?  Feline.  Seismograph.  Antibiotic.  Ooh… you smoked that.  All right.  You’re good, damn good.  That’s your power.  You take that, you leverage that, you use your power to take the system down.  All right.  And what’s this?  This says for dogs.” — Art

“Remember that guy in the picture?  Gotta find him.  He took something from me.  I gotta get it back.  Give me– listen, don’t press your luck.  Why the hell would I pay you $10,000 for anything?  Give me those keys.  All right.  Two.  Yeah.  You ever hear of Teleios?  Defense contractor.  They were the ones who cracked the codes back in the day.  Grabbed a bunch of Rangers, put ’em all in the room, filled them up with radiation.  Messed with their genes.  Tried to turn us in to superheroes.  They didn’t.  Not really.  ‘Cause in the real world, the power goes to where it always goes, to the people that already have it.  I tried it once.  Damn near killed me, hurt a lot of people.  So I said I’m not trying that shit no more.  A few years later, Tracy came along.  I knew she was different though.  When she was young, she never got sick or anything like that.  As she got older, she got stronger.  She exhibited symptoms of… powers.  But she never had to take a pill.  Oh, okay.  Yeah, you hood, but you smart, huh?  Anyway, when Teleios caught wind of Tracy, they wanted to experiment on her like they did on me.  And that’s when we just took off.” — Art

“Put your seat belt on.  No, you don’t.  Put your seat belt on!  Somebody’s following us.  Hold on.  Keep your head down.  Trace!  No!  Tracy!  Tracy!  It’s the spot.” — Art

“Gentlemen, on your knees, hands behind your head.  NOPD.  I see we have a lady here, as well.  You too, ma’am.  Hands, very good.  Thank you.  Now, how’s everybody doing tonight?  You sure you want to do that, young man?  You ever taken one of those before?  You haven’t, have you?  I can tell.  Now, I bet you’ve heard it can make you fast, make you strong.  Make this a fair fight, even though I got a gun pointed at your face.  But that’s only if you happen to have a good Power.  Not everybody does.  Some people take it and just blow up.  So the question is, what’s your power?  Might be good, might be bad, nobody knows.  Take it.  Go ahead.  I wanna see what happens.  You boys are lucky I only have one pair of cuffs.  I’d bring you all in.  You can go now.  Go!  You okay?  That’s not what I saw.  You don’t know me.  What do you know about Clint Eastwood?  What you seen him in?  That’s actually a pretty good one.  The same stuff as last time?  I don’t know.  Did you get it from the same guy as last time?  It’s not that simple.  Bad guys using this stuff to take out whole precincts of cops single-handed.  I’m just trying to level the playing field.  Yeah, thanks.  What do you think of the bike?  Well, you want it or not?  I mean, I brought it here for you.  no, you said it was your birthday the other day, right?  Okay then, you know what?  Never mind.  Yeah, you sure?  It was the nicest one at the impound lot.  Get on!” — Frank Shaver

“It doesn’t hurt.  No, ma’am.  For a second, I did there.  Yes.  Captain.  If I hadn’t taken that, I’d be dead.  That what you want?  There are no laws on this drug!  They don’t exist officially, ’cause every time we try to deal with it, some guys in suits show up and tell us to stop.  Look, I don’t know who those two were that came in today and cut you off at the knees.  I don’t know if they’re feds or military or what, but clearly, they have you under their thumb.  And I don’t think you like it.  ‘Cause they don’t care about the people of this city.  Not like you do, not like I do, and we know what happened last time we were counting on guys in suits to look out for New Orleans.  Now, you need to make me the bad guy, that’s fine.  But I’d be willing to bet you know more than you’re allowed to say.  Maybe we can work together on this, unofficially.  And maybe we can do some good.  And isn’t that our job?  Who is he?” — Frank Shaver
