Big fucking drop... (6.44)

Bobby: I'm not gonna lie to you. The developer behind this tech is Douglas Mason.

Wendy: Taylor's father.

Rebecca: Big fucking drop.

Wendy: But it's a solid play. It's been vetted.

Rebecca: Vetted for making money or for making Taylor's head explode like in Scanners?

Bobby: Bit of both.

Scanners is a 1981 Canadian science-fiction horror film written and directed by David Cronenberg and starring Stephen Lack, Jennifer O'Neill, Michael Ironside, and Patrick McGoohan.

The film's plot concerns the attempt by Darryl Revok (Ironside), a renegade scanner, to wage a war against ConSec. Another scanner, Cameron Vale (Lack), is dispatched by ConSec to stop Revok.
