Dimitri: I fully acknowledge the suffering I caused others in the name of research. I admit that it might have been pride that compelled me, rather than my love for Claire. I ended my work on the time machine after the events in ‘Future London’ -
Alfendi: Yeah… but did you go to prison like Clive? Sure, you might serve less jail time, but it’s jail time either way.
Dimitri: I was so blinded by my work, that I didn’t comprehend Clive’s true intentions. Then it was too late to stop him.
Alfendi: Did you or did you not go to prison after kidnapping several scientists - and the Prime Minister - trapping them in Future London and forcing them to work on your time machine, against Claire’s wishes?
Dimitri: Claire said she, Bill and myself must all pay -
Alfendi: QUIT MOPING AND ANSWER THE BLOODY QUESTION.
Dimitri: What are you talking about?
Alfendi: Were you punished for your crimes in Future London? Dad said Clive was led away by the police after the Mobile Fortress went down… but none of them even acknowledged you. Not even Inspector Chelmey! I get that on some level you were acting ‘in the name of love’ and you admitted to your crimes. It makes you a sympathetic person. But being remorseful and a pawn in Clive’s plans doesn’t excuse your crimes! If that was the case, Clive could go free for promising to atone!
Dimitri: Of course I went to prison! I deserved to! I was just released after a few years… I think…
Alfendi: Prove it.
Dimitri: …You know, I can’t actually remember…
Alfendi: *Looks at Level 5 like he’s on the office.*
