Rollo Linsky:
Now, Hobbes believed that man is an animal that thinks too much. An over-rational animal that's lost touch with its body and its instincts. How do you like that? In other words, too much brains, not enough guts. So what he came up with to help our guts along was a parasite that's, "a combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease that will hopefully turn the world into one beautiful, mindless orgy."

Transcript:
- I don't quite get it.
- Hobbes believed that "man is an animal
"that thinks too much.
An over rational animal
"that has lost touch with its body and
its instincts." How do you like that?
In other words, too much
brain and not enough guts.
So what he came up with
to help our guts along
was a parasite that's...
a combination of aphrodisiac
and venereal disease
that will hopefully turn the world
into one beautiful, mindless orgy.
Well, I think it sounds
a little crazy to me.
Look. The important thing
to you, Rog, is this.
You know Annabelle? Well,
he was using her as a guinea pig.
- A guinea pig?
- He implanted her with a parasite,
and once it took over,
apparently she went berserk.
I guess Hobbes wasn't ready for that,
- so I guess he just had to kill her.
- What was the point?
Well, the point was...
he wasn't trying to burn her.
- He wasn't?
- No.
He was trying to burn
the things. All of them.
- Yeah, well, he didn't make it.
- What?
Maybe Hobbes didn't know,
but Annabelle Brown was a popular girl
around Starliner Towers.
I've got three men here, maybe four,
hosting large, free-moving, apparently
pathogenic, abdominal growths
that nobody I've tried can identify.

Summary: The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.
