Rochester:
[radio episode of The Jack Benny Program] Boss, it's no use. I've tried and tried and I can't get Carmichael to go to sleep.



Jack Benny:
Rochester, that poor bear's just got to go to sleep. He's supposed to have been in hibernation over ten days ago.



Commander Dan Thurman:
[in disbelief] Jack Benny?



Rochester:
Huh-huh!



Jack Benny:
Where's he now?



Rochester:
Sitting up in bed reading Esquire.


[audience laughter]



Jack Benny:
Esquire? Well, take it away from him.



Rochester:
Oh, come now, boss. He's been around!

Captain Yelland:
This is the captain, I am speaking to every man aboard this ship. In the past few hours many things have happened; rumors of nuclear attacks and a third world war are totally untrue. We have no reason to believe that any aggression has been taken against our homes our families. I believe what we stumbled across is not man-made but a phenomena of nature, one that can't be explained. This phenomena is the storm in which the Nimitz went through less than 18 hours ago, the storm has had some effect on time as we know it, it created a portal, a door into another era. Today is December 7, 1941... I'm sure we are all aware of the significance of this date in this place in history. We are going to fight a battle that was lost before most of you were born. This time, with God's help, its going to be different... Good Luck.

F-14 pilot #1:
Eagle Control, Alert One. Splash two, repeat, splash two. Possibly one survivor in the water.

Pilot:
[the Corsair is inbound to the Nimitz before the first time storm] Nimitz, this is 412, I have an unsafe hook indicator, over.



Air Boss:
412, roger unsafe hook. Recycle your hook.



Pilot:
Negative, I've tried that.



Air Ops Officer:
412, your transmission's poor, say your fuel state.



Air Boss:
[over the intercom to the bridge] Captain, Boss, that Corsair's in real trouble, can't get his tailhook down. I think we better take him in the barricade.



Captain Yelland:
Rig it!

Lasky:
Think of the history of the next forty years...



Commander Richard Owens:
I have a suspicion history will be a little more difficult to beat, than you imagine Mr. Lasky.



Lasky:
I'm talking about the classic paradox of time. Imagine, for example, I go back in time and meet my own Grandfather. Long before he got married, before he had children. And we have an argument, and I kill him. Now if that happens, how am I ever going to be born? And if I can never be born, how can I go back in history and meet my very own Grandfather?



Commander Richard Owens:
[angrily] I'm not half the theorist you are, Mr. Lasky. But I still have a gut instinct that things only happen once. And if they have happened, then there's nothing we can do to change them. Nor should we try.



Lasky:
Well, how are you going to avoid it? It's already happening, and we're already involved!



Commander Dan Thurman:
For Christ's sake! What is this, some half-assed Princeton debating society? We are in a war situation! This is a United States warship! Or, at least, it used to be. Or will be. Or what the hell ever! Oh, Goddammit, you can drive yourself crazy just trying to think about this stuff!


[shouts]



Commander Dan Thurman:
Jesus, I must be dreaming!
