The card text has more than just the {taH pagh taHbe'} phrase.  It
continues for the next few sentences of the KSRP's version of the
soliloquy, ending with {rInmoHDI'?}  It's definitely quoting Nick's work,
not just the movie.

The card in question is listed near the bottom of the right-hand column of
page 1.
