I'll try the bio-regenerators Up in sick bay.
Good luck.
And in the meantime, I'm gonna find this guy.
How? While he's using his mental powers, His body's probably vulnerable.
He's got to be in a place he thinks is safe Somewhere familiar.
Reasonable.
But once you find him, How do you stop him from thinking? I'll just have to improvise.
Be careful! If you nod off for even a second Don't worry.
I'm used to late hours.

There's a barrier around her mind! Out of the way! [wind blows.]
Dee: You know, I could let you go.
You're a distraction now, And it's the others I have the real problem with.
We're like insects to them.
They step on us, ruin our lives! And they don't even realize it.
But you're different.
You don't have any special powers.
Oh, I have one, Johnny.
I never give up.
[humming.]
What do you say, Johnny? Wanna go one-on-one? It'll give you something to brag about.
Aah! Unh! [grunting.]
Unh! Ooh Sweet dreams.
Good morning, sunshine.
Wait a minute! Is this another dream? I could pinch you.
It's real.
