"What the hell is that? Thelma Lou, gimme my camera!"

"Get closer, Merle! I can't see a damn thing back here!"

"That summbitch is burnin' up like a summbitch!"

"Slow down! I don't wanna miss nothin'!"

(Massive Explosion)

"Sheeyut! Goddamn thing is blowin' up!"

"Why the hell you get so damn close? Christ on a cracker, I spilled my Mountain Dew!"

(ˈblɛviː/ BLEV-ee)

Our prayers out to those people who did.
