ERNESTO(Spanish Accent) Listen brothers and sisters we now know where we stand. We are at the point of no return, here we are holed out in the heart of the Andes with only God and the sacred Condor as our guide.
MARIAErnesto we are aware of our situation.
ERNESTOI know Maria, but myself, you and Pedro need to decide where our destiny is going to take us.
PEDROI love you both as if you were my blood and we should see this through to the end.
MARIAEl Presidente has to die, we must do our utmost with the help of God to spill his blood as he has spilt the blood of many of our sisters and brothers.
ERNESTOThat is why we need to make the pact of our ancestors tonight to ensure we have the strength to carry out this act of god.
ERNESTOThe Brothers and Sisters in Blood pact
MARIAWe must Ernesto you?re right
ERNESTOYes Pedro we must spill blood together
PEDRO(agitated) What tonight?
ERNESTO(irritated) Yes tonight Pedro, we must bind in blood and with this sacred mountain in the hope it will give us the strength to kill that bastard Chivas.
PEDROOk, but what?s involved? What?s all this spilling our own blood about? Can we not just agree to bump him off?
MARIAPedro we take our knives, we each cut our right palm, the hands that we will kill him with, and we bind our blood together.
ERNESTOPass me my knife Maria
