(Cueball, Black hat and Megan are standing.)

Cueball: Everyone loves these eagles that take down drones, but ... I dunno.

Megan: You gotta admit, it's pretty cool.

(Close-up on Cueball's face)

Cueball: Yeah, but ... training rare animals to hurl themselves at whirling machinery can only get us so far, you know?

(Regular shot)

Cueball: At some point, it's like releasing police dogs onto highways to attack speeding motorcycles.

Megan: Also cool, but I see your point.

Black Hat: Plus, I just finished my autonomous drone that hunts eagles.

Cueball: Man, you are an entirely separate class of problem.
