Watchmen: A Matter of Time
Published on December 31, 2018 by Paul Ciano
It rains on the just and the unjust alike. The Comedian…was a little bit of both.
I think, statistically, one murder doesn’t equal a trend. Rorschach’s a sociopath, Dan. I mean, so was the Comedian. He was practically a Nazi. You know that better than anyone.
Eddie, what the hell are you doing here? You knew I was changing.
Sure I did. C’mon, baby. I know what you need. You gotta have some kind of reason for dressing in an outfit like this.
I said “no”, Eddie.
“No” spelled Y-E-S.
“No” spelled N-O. All right?
The war is over now. We must talk, about this baby.
There’s nothing to talk about. You see, I’m leaving. I’m gonna forget about you, and your horrible sweaty little piece of shit country.
Goddamn I love working on American soil, Dan. Ain’t had this much fun since Woodward and Bernstein.
How long can we keep this up?
Congress is pushing through some new bill that’s gonna outlaw masks. Our days are numbered. Till then, it’s like you always say: we’re society’s only protection.
You kidding me? From themselves.
Is this what you like? Is this what makes you hot?
What the hell happened to us? What happened to the American Dream?
“What happened to the American Dream?” It came true! You’re lookin’ at it.
It’s a joke. It’s all a fucking joke. You know, I thought I knew how it was. I thought I knew how the world was. I’ve done some bad things. I did bad things to women. I shot kids, in ‘Nam. But that was fucking war! This. I’ve never done anything like this.
You know, your Mom, she was one of the all-time champion beauties. You got her eyes, you know. You even have that same funny little mole.
Take your hands off her!
Hey, doll. Long time, no see.
Not long enough in my book, Eddie…Are there no depths you won’t sink to?
Jesus Christ, Sally. Can’t a guy talk to his…an old friend’s daughter? What the hell do you think I am?
It doesn’t take a genius to see the world has problems.
Yeah, but it takes a room full of morons to think they’re small enough for you to handle. You people, you hear Moloch’s back in town, you get your panties all in a bunch. You think catching him matters?
Justice? Justice is coming to all of us, no matter what the fuck we do.
