Dingo: I-Isn't there a cure? 

Dr.Robotnik: There was an antidote, but they only created enough to cure one person before the War was over, and it's hidden somewhere in the Pais Mysterioso.

(Joy's eyes widen)

Joy: The Pais Mysterioso? *looks at Robotnik* The Pais Mysterioso??? The only thing that can save Sleet's life is hidden *anime anger* IN THE PAIS FREAKING MYSTERIOSO?!?!?!

Dingo: What if Sleet was with me? Then he'd get it in time!

Joy: Hmm... Go alone and Sleet's death is guaranteed, OR take Sleet with us and give him a greater chance of survival *Looks at Robotnik* What do you think, doc?

Dr.Robotnik: It's risky, but it's our only option. *looks at Joy* What do you mean "us"?

Joy: I'm going with him.

Dr.Robotnik: You're kidding, right?

Joy: Sir, there are only 2 people on Mobius who know the antidote's exact location : Me and you. And if you left, the base would be easy to attack.
