Title text: Give a man a fish, or he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote.
This comic references a famous quote made by Archimedes: δῶς μοι πᾶ στῶ καὶ τὰν γᾶν κινάσω, which could translate as "Give me a long enough lever and a place to rest it, and I will move the Earth". Here, Cueball starts off the quote, but then he turns this into a hostage situation, announcing to kill a hostage every hour until he gets the equipment he is asking for.
The title text references another famous proverb, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." The quote starts out the same, but again ends with a sentence that is more fitting for an action thriller.
- Cueball: In the words of Archimedes,
- Cueball: Give me a long enough lever and a place to rest it
- [Cueball pulls out a gun.]
- Cueball: Or I will kill one hostage every hour.
