sequence

A plan is a list of actions arranged in whatever sequence is thought likely to achieve an objective.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reminiscences, even extensive ones, do not always amount to an autobiography. For autobiography has to do with time, with sequence and what makes up the continuous flow of life. Here, I am talking of a space, of moments and discontinuities. For even if months and years appear here, it is in the form they have in the moment of recollection. This strange form -- it may be called fleeting or eternal -- is in neither case the stuff that life is made of.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Developing the plan is actually laying out the sequence of events that have to occur for you to achieve your goal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the sequence where I am burned at the stake, everything was so casual and hazardous that the bottom of my dress caught fire, and the grips became hysterical as they tried to pull me off the stake.More [07/31/2006 12:07:00]
I did the whole sequel with a broken finger. And the two night horse sequence too. My finger is two sizes bigger now.More [10/23/2006 12:10:00]
Sid: [after an elaborate dance sequence which ends in him getting tied up] This is either really good or really bad.More [03/08/2007 12:03:00]
Tyrell: [Tyrell explains to Roy why he can't extend his lifespan] The facts of life... to make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life system is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.
Batty: Why not?
Tyrell: Because by the second day of incubation any cells that have undergone reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies like rats leaving a sinking ship, then the ship sinks.
Batty: What about EMS recombination?
Tyrell: We've already tried it, ethyl, methane, sulfinate as an alkalating agent and potent mutagen, it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.
Batty: Then a repressor protein, that would block the operating cells.
Tyrell: Wouldn't obstruct replication but it does give rise to an error in replication so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a mutation and you've got a virus again... but this, all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.
Batty: But not to last.
Tyrell: The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long and you have burned so very, very brightly Roy. Look at you, you're the prodigal son, you're quite a prize.
Batty: I've done questionable things.
Tyrell: Also extraodinary things, revel in your time.
Batty: Nothing the God of bio-mechanics wouldn't put you in heaven for.More [04/06/2007 12:04:00]
Flaws of style and sequence would fairly leap off the page and the means to correct them would, too.More [09/06/2007 12:09:00]

[opening narration]



narrator (opening sequence only):
Into the West came many men. Some were good men and some were bad men. Some were good men with some bad in them and some were bad men with some good in them. This is the story of two pretty good bad men. Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry. Together these gentlemen substantially altered the course of America's frontier. They did a lot to change railroad schedules, too. And in all the trains and banks they robbed, they never shot anyone. This made our two latter-day Robin Hoods very popular... with everyone but the railroads and the banks. Because unlike Robin Hood, Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry robbed from the rich and kept the money for themselves. It was a good life. But times were changing. Safes were getting better. Posses were getting bigger. Sheriffs were getting smarter. And modern communications made it only a matter of time 'til they would be captured, and maybe even killed.

[The alien Enik has made a startling discovery about the temporal doorway that has led him and the Marshalls to this world]



Enik:
I cannot leave here. Nothing can leave here, unless an object of equal mass and temporal energy enters.



Will Marshall:
Well, that means we can't leave either, unless three other people come in.



Enik:
Yes, but there is more. You should not be here at all. Your presence here is the source of my problem. Look...


[Enik opens the time doorway onto a view of the Grand Canyon]



Will Marshall:
It's Earth! Enik, if I had a parachute I could jump through!



Enik:
Wait, there is more.


[Next Will sees himself, Rick, and Holly]



Will Marshall:
That's us, on the river!



Enik:
Pay attention now, this is the troubling part.



Will Marshall:
That's the rapids we were on.


[The time doorway replays - via stock footage of the show's title sequence - Rick, Will, and Holly being swallowed into a cavern by a monstrous earthquake, descending down underground rapids, and plunging down a monstrous waterfall - but Will notices an anomoly the audience cannot see]



Will Marshall:
Enik... where's the mist for the doorway?



Enik:
I do not know


[Will now realizes what Enik means by his earlier comments]



Will Marshall:
We... we were all killed. Weren't we.



Enik:
Obviously. You should not be here now.

[opening sequence to the episode: "A Death in the Family"]



Narrator:
Dr. David Banner, Physician/Scientist, searching for a way to tap into the hidden strengths that all humans have. Then an accidental overdose of gamma radiation interacts with his unique body chemistry. And now, when David Banner grows angry or outraged, a startling metamorphasis occurs.


[while trying to change a tire during a thunderstorm, David changes into the Hulk]



Narrator:
The creature is driven by rage and pursued by an investigative reporter.



David Banner:
Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.


[McGee witnesses an explosion from a building]



Narrator:
An accidental explosion took the life of a fellow scientist and supposedly David Banner as well. The reporter thinks the creature was responsible.



Jack McGee:
[voice-over] I gave a description to all the law enforcement agencies. They got a warrant for murder out of it.



Narrator:
A murder which David Banner can never prove he or the creature didn't commit. So he must let the world go on thinking that he too is dead, until he can find a way to control the raging spirit that dwells within him.

General Sline:
When we commissioned the Schmectel Corporation to research this precise event sequence scenario, it was determined that the continual stockpiling and development of our nuclear arsenal was becoming self-defeating. A weapon unused is a useless weapon.

[J.B. is lying on the ground, terribly wounded]



Kaitlin Star:
[shouts] J.B.! Are you okay? Can you move?



J.B. Reese:
[groaning] These Skugs sure pack a wallop. Guess I need a recharge.



Kaitlin Star:
You got it!

Kaitlin Star:
OK, J.B., it's time!

[Little person Tito is not happy with the dream sequence]



Tito:
Why does my character have to be a dwarf?



Nick:
He doesn't have to be.



Tito:
Then why is he? Is that the only way you can make this a dream, to put a dwarf in it?



Nick:
No, Tito, I...



Tito:
Have you ever had a dream with a dwarf in it? Do you know anyone who's had a dream with a dwarf in it? No! I don't even have dreams with dwarves in them. The only place I've seen dwarves in dreams is in stupid movies like this! "Oh make it weird, put a dwarf in it!". Everyone will go "Woah, this must be a fuckin' dream, there's a fuckin' dwarf in it!". Well I'm sick of it! You can take this dream sequence and stick it up your ass!

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
Tom:
I'd like to share this dream I had last night with you if that's okay?


[Natassia nods and the dream sequence begins]



Tom:
I was running on the beach, and I started running towards her. She was this beautiful asian girl, she had this amazing tan. Anyway, I kept running towards her, faster and faster. But the faster I ran, the further away she got. So I kept on running faster and faster, but she kept getting further and further away. Then all of a sudden she just appeared right in front of me... Then she changed into General Schweinkopf, just like that.



General Schweinkopf:
Greco-Roman wrestling is the fastest growing sport in America, except for soccer, baseball, badminton, and certain equestrian events.


[Dream sequence ends]



Natasha:
Tom? Lets boogie!



Tom:
Yeah well, thanks for listening.

Lara Croft:
Stop!

[Eric's dream sequence during "A New Hope"]



Red as Obi:
A Jedi's power lies within his own mi- are you even listening to me?

What? Yes. Um, you were saying, may the force be with me?



Red as Obi:
No, I did not. Jedi knight. Jedi dumbass!

[Eric's dream sequence during "A New Hope"]



Hyde as Han:
Luke, man! I don't mean to bum you out, but I just saw Princess Leia cruising around with Darth Vader and his Tie Fighter. Right Chewy?



Chewbacca:
Unnnnn! (Chewbacca takes off his mask and we see that it's Kelso.) Man, this totally sucks. I should be Han.



Hyde as Han:
Hey, quit whining! (He hits Kelso/Chewy.)



Kelso as Chewy:
Unn!

[Watching Hindi Movies]



Krishna:
This is driving me crazy!... It's been 10 minutes, aren't we due for another song-and-dance sequence?


[Song-and-dance sequence begins]



Krishna:
Good I was starting to get worried... What is this? The next day? They've all changed clothes!... I've seen porno films with better storylines than this, honestly!


[Rakesh and Nina leave in aggravation]



Jagjit:
Good job, yaar. Insulting Hindi films and admitting to watching Porno.

Chance:
Rory, you can't just manhandle me into your fucking car and expect me to jump your bones or something. I mean, it's light out for one thing and there are kids who live in my building, for God's sake. What if they came out to play baseball and saw your hairy ass pressed up against the windshield?



Rory:
I don't want to have sex with you.



Chance:
Wait. What did you say? Oh, now I'm not good enough for you or something?



Rory:
No, I just want to...



Chance:
What are you saying, Rory? Spit it out.



Rory:
Can't we just talk like before?



Chance:
Before?

Chance:
Before? You mean, before I got so fucking bored I fell asleep and you still kept talking?

Dr. Josh Keyes:
So, we hotwire the nukes, as one does. We see them through the core at a location that has to be accurate to the inch. We detonate them in a sequence that has to be accurate to the millisecond. And we outrun the biggest nuclear shockwave in history.



Dr. Conrad Zimsky:
Right.



Dr. Ed 'Braz' Brazzelton:
Yeah.



Dr. Josh Keyes:
I mean that should be fairly simple.

A final proof of our ideas can only be obtained by detailed studies on the alterations produced in the amino acid sequence of a protein by mutations of the type discussed here.More [10/06/2011 05:10:58]
It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of any protein is determined by the sequence of bases in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule.More [10/06/2011 05:10:48]

Feast of Chad, Abbot of Lastingham, Bishop of Lichfield, Missionary, 672 Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God's removal of that which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him.

Belief in immortality for us does not depend on a story, however well attested, in an ancient book... No, here was a sequence of great character and emancipated spirit, all attached to and explained by such a personality as the world never saw; and the central doctrine of the risen Christ squared with the rationality and the goodness of God... The wise said that God and the godlike could have no contact with suffering, but Jesus was no phantom feigning to be crucified; he truly suffered on the cross, he truly rose.
