VOX Archive

  • Angie Aimes: [footsteps, clatter, footsteps, clatter] Eat up, boys.
  • Jason Todd: [sniff] Smells good... What is it?
  • Angie Aimes: Rabbit stew.
  • Roy Harper: Rabbits? There many rabbits in Gotham City?
  • Angie Aimes: Do you boys see many alley cows while you're jumping over rooftops? It's called a butcher shop. They import.
  • Jason Todd: Butcher shop? You mean, like, at the supermarket?
  • Angie Aimes: No... a specialty butcher shop. The one I like is called Felix's. It's on Lincoln, a few blocks from where I work at the Gazette. So... you boys gonna eat it or did you just want to talk about meat?
  • Ellie MacKay: If they don't want it, can I have some?
  • Angie Aimes: You already had dinner.
  • Ellie MacKay: But then I went on patrol... and that burns a lot of calories.
  • Angie Aimes: No! You went on patrol against my orders. You disobeyed me. No soup for you... In fact, go wash up and go to bed. We'll talk more after our guests leave.
  • Ellie MacKay: [scoff] But-
  • Angie Aimes: Go!
  • Ellie MacKay: [annoyed groan, stomping footsteps, door opens, footsteps, scream, door slams shut]
  • Flag: [scoff] Teenagers... am I right?
  • Angie Aimes: You should go to bed, too, Flag.
  • Flag: [scoff] Yeah, right. [zap, pained shout, rapid padded footsteps] Yeesh! I'm going! [blipt]
  • Roy Harper: [slurp] The stew is good.
  • Jason Todd: [slurp] As are the powers... Ellie told us you're also good with machines?
  • Angie Aimes: [scoff, chair sliding on floor, clatter] Did she now? [sigh] Yeah... I'm a technopath, I guess.
  • Roy Harper: Would you like to be an Outsider, too?
  • Angie Aimes: An Outsider? Oh, wait... I've heard of you bunch. You're in Blüdhaven, aren't you?
  • Roy Harper: Yeah, we are... We could use a den mother of sorts. Someone to make some meals, patch up the armor, clean the guns. You wouldn't have to go on any missions or anything. We hear you're more or less retired.
  • Angie Aimes: I came to Gotham to get away from this sort of life... [sigh] and Ellie drags me back into it.
  • Jason Todd: You want Ellie to be safe, right? Best way for her to be safe is to be properly trained. We can make her a Titan.
  • Angie Aimes: Yeah... because no Titans have ever been killed, right? [scoff] Actually, aren't the two of you 'officially' dead?
  • Roy Harper: Jason's not wrong. Ellie's not going to stop. If you make her rebel, you only risk her going to the other side.
  • Angie Aimes: [sigh] Once a week. I'll come by once a week, make some meals and freeze them, patch up armor, whatever.
  • Jason Todd: [chuckle] Deal. [slurp] Would, you, uh... maybe mind bringing some of this rabbit stew by? I kinda like it.
  • Roy Harper: [slurp, scoff] It's good... It's not as good as Dinah's, though.
  • Jason Todd: [slurp, scoff] The hell it's not! This is twice the stew that Dinah makes!
  • Angie Aimes: Boys! [hand slapping tabletop] No arguing at the dinner table. Okay?
  • [in unison, apologetic:] Jason Todd: Yes, ma'am. Roy Harper: Sorry, ma'am.
