[Lexia appears next to her]

Hailey Bortz: Lexia is very hungry. Lexia! Go and get our prey! Hailey Bortz is coming to get you! You will die here, Hailey knows best.

[She chuckles]

[from Trigger Teddy Lexia teaser]

Hailey Bortz: Lexia! Go and get our prey!

Lexia Bortz: You three will all be victims of cannibalism to us soon enough. You will all die by our bear-like teeth once we feast on you!

Hailey Bortz: You will die here. Lexia is very hungry.

Lexia Bortz: You heard what she said, motherf**kers!

[There is another shot of her]

Ainsley Bortz: It might be comforting to tell you that your death will be quick and painless. But that would be a lie. After all, we can get carried away while performing our duties.
