Kerrigan: I’m going to look into your memories, and find out why I feel so angry when I see you.


Abathur: Memories not important. Distractions.

Kerrigan: I see it in your mind… You designed the Queen of Blades! Your limbs wrapped me in the chrysalis!


Abathur: Weak and soft. Broke bones. Tore flesh. Improved you.


Note: Kerrigan’s eyes flare attacking Abathur psionically.

Kerrigan: If you weren’t important to my plans, you’d be dead right now.


Abathur: Unclear.
