- StrexCorp Synernists Incorporated: Cecil sympathizes with Fey's predicament, saying that there is no worse fate than working at a radio station owned by an organization with goals that are not her own, costricted to the limited language they allow her, and relaying messages she does not understand or agree with, and saying that a radio announcer put into that situation would be justified in escaping or overthrowing their management.
