- That arch-- - Is this St. Louis?
Now we call it Defiance.
We live in a unique place
where human and Votan races live together as equals.
If Datak wins this election,
he's gonna kick open the doors to Colonel Marsh,
and a year from now, you won't even recognize this place.
The name of the next mayor of Defiance...
You know what the cult called me?
I'm the angel of death.
No, you were a little girl in a bad situation.
My little girl.
Just tell me where to find the girl and the artifact.
What do you plan to do with her?
I would be more concerned with what we plan to do with you.
They're looking for the Colonel downstairs.
He's right there.
The Earth Republic will come for us.
Masters of our fate no longer.
All right, we're gonna get you out of here.
I can't lose him.
What will it cost me?
You must become my weapon.
Attention, all citizens of Defiance.
This is the Earth Republic.
We have assumed control of the town.
I appreciate the nice things in life.
I take no pride and accept no shame in this.
I treat small luxuries like hand cream
as valuable indulgences to treasure.
My moments of civilization.
So you'll no doubt understand,
when I accepted the role of provisional mayor 8 and 1/2 months ago,
I was apprehensive.
I imagined those wild west movies my father was so fond of,
of a town full of anarchists,
malcontents, and savages.
How wrong I was.
Put simply, Defiance is paradise.
Look around you in any direction
and you'll find indescribable beauty.
This is a town of people who know how to have a good time.
But when the moment comes to roll up the sleeves
and get down to the nitty-gritty,
no one works harder for a living,
and that hard work has turned Defiance
into a bonafide boomtown.
And I predict those among you who, like me,
enjoy the nice things,
shall soon have them in abundance.
But the real inspiration, that elusive element
that makes this town so unique,
is your inclusiveness.
Humans and Votans living side by side as friends,
It's truly inspiring.
In my time as mayor, I've worked every single day
to live up to the lofty standard
the people of Defiance have set for me.
Together, we've reduced crime,
we've rebuilt the stasis net.
By nationalizing the Gulanite mines,
we have doubled wages and tripled productivity.
And now I'd like to thank my colleagues
at the Earth Republic.
In particular, Viceroy Berto Mercado,
who has made the long trip from New York
to celebrate with us today.
Thanks to their generous financial assistance,
the long-delayed mag-lev spur will finally become a reality.
Now, I know you're all itching to get to the party,
so without further ado, allow me to wish you
a happy and prosperous Founders Day.
And we're clear.
Excellent speech, Mr. mayor.
謝謝你 柏林 謝謝你
Thank you, Berlin. Thank you.
It did go well.
Don't you think?
You're pretty with the words, Pottinger.
You always have been.
You're a show-off, Pottinger,
愛說大話 塗點手霜 上上電視
with your big words, your hand lotion, your TV screens.
But I tell you something, I never met a show-off
who was quite as smart as he thought he was.
Well, now that you finally have,
you can tell your grandkids all about it.
I'll have to remember that.
The viceroy is a powerful man.
Why do you go out of your way to make him mad?
Mercado only respects people he hates.
You should remember that, Churchill,
because it's true and useful.
Stop calling me that, Pottinger.
You're the mayor now.
Did you-- did you watch the speech?
I skipped the last four.
What made you think I'd catch this one?
Blind optimism, I guess.
You could be doing so much more for Defiance.
Come work for me.
You're part of an occupying army.
So you're questioning our right to be here?
Your duly elected mayor stabbed to death
one of our high-ranking military officers.
That's an act of war.
Well, I certainly did not vote for Datak.
Great! We both agree Datak Tarr's a prat.
That's common ground. We can build from there.
Like it or not, you're here.
I care about doing my job well.
Until I receive orders to the contrary,
my job is keeping Defiance peaceful and productive.
Now, you could help me accomplish that.
Isn't that why you ran for mayor in the first place?
Look at that. More common ground.
There's magic here.
Can you feel it?
