reaction

In contrast to revenge, which is the natural, automatic reaction to transgression and which, because of the irreversibility of the action process can be expected and even calculated, the act of forgiving can never be predicted; it is the only reaction that acts in an unexpected way and thus retains, though being a reaction, something of the original character of action.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In a land which is fully settled, most men must accept their local environment or try to change it by political means; only the exceptionally gifted or adventurous can leave to seek his fortune elsewhere. In America, on the other hand, to move on and make a fresh start somewhere else is still the normal reaction to dissatisfaction and failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
More and more, when faced with the world of men, the only reaction is one of individualism. Man alone is an end unto himself. Everything one tries to do for the common good ends in failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What life means to us is determined, not so much by what life brings to us as by the attitude we bring to life; not so much by what happens to us as by our reaction to what happens.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To begin with, you must realize that any idea accepted by the brain is automatically transformed into an action of some sort. It may take seconds or minutes or longer -- but ideas always produce a reaction of some sort.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What a man calls his conscience is merely the mental action that follows a sentimental reaction after too much wine or love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Anthony: Look around! You couldn't find a whiter, safer or better lit part of this city. But this white woman sees two black guys, who look like UCLA students, strolling down the sidewalk and her reaction is blind fear. I mean, look at us! Are we dressed like gangbangers? Do we look threatening? No. Fact, if anybody should be scared, it's us: the only two black faces surrounded by a sea of over-caffeinated white people, patrolled by the triggerhappy LAPD. So, why aren't we scared?
Peter: Because we have guns?
Anthony: You could be right.More [09/12/2005 12:09:00]
I was a little nervous going into the match. She pushed me right away but I was able to adjust to where she was serving and my reaction got better. Thank god I still have those skills.More [03/18/2006 12:03:00]
I have been wearing black, which was a reaction to the Ginger thing. But now I have hopes and I can be anything. Tomorrow I might be naked with a feather boa, who knows?More [03/21/2006 12:03:00]
For instance, when I go to the premiere on Tuesday I probably won't watch the film at all - I'll be watching the audience just to see their reaction to different moments, what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong, stuff like that.More [05/03/2006 12:05:00]
The truth is, I can never die. For I will be in everything and see you in everything and watch over you. I am your reaction in the water of a mountain lake.More [05/22/2006 12:05:00]
Some of the things you read you get an immediate reaction to so I've stopped reading things now. I do worry about my family though. Some people do try some nasty things to get at them and try and get a reaction from them.More [05/24/2006 12:05:00]
Paul never told me anything about why he wrote it -- he never mentioned his father and he never mentioned my father, ... He never put me in a position in which I would feel a lot of external pressure other than wanting my reaction to the script. That's the way I would do it. That's the way I know a real professional would do it. That's the proper to do it.More [05/29/2006 12:05:00]
“There's the film that comes out in a public way that you see with the masses, that you go and publicly see and participate in a film, right? Then its reaction is a public reaction. Your opinion becomes part of that public reaction and is in some way, whether you like it or not, molded by that public reaction.”More [07/10/2006 12:07:00]
There's always a reaction based on fear. People assume if you're criticizing a decision to go to war, then you're saying something against the soldiers-which is not the case.More [10/30/2006 12:10:00]
Nicole Richie is supposed to be way too thin. It's more likely she's gone that way as a reaction to being called too chubby in the past. It's her only way of controlling the situation she's in. I completely understand that.More [11/01/2006 12:11:00]

Marty McFly: [looks through a camcorder] This is uh... This is heavy duty, Doc. This is great. Uh... does it run, like... on regular unleaded gasoline?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Unfortunately no, it requires something with a little more kick - plutonium.
Marty McFly: Uh... plutonium? Wait.
[lowers the camcorder by his side and points to the DeLorean]
Marty McFly: Are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Hey, hey, hey. Keep rolling. Keep rolling, there.
[Marty looks through the camcorder again]
Dr. Emmett Brown: No, no, no. This sucker's electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 jigawatts of electricity I need.
Marty McFly: Doc, you don't just walk into a store and buy plutonium. Did you rip that off?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Shhhhhh. Of course. From a group of Libyan nationalists. They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and in turn, gave them a shoddy bomb-casing full of used pinball machine parts! Come on! Let's get you a radiation suit. We must prepare to reload.More [02/26/2007 12:02:00]
Doc: They're taking her home, to your future home! We'll arrive shortly thereafter, get her out of there and go back to 1985.
Marty McFly: You mean, I'm going to see where I live? I'm gonna see myself as an old man?
Doc: No, no, no Marty, that could result in a... Great scott! Jennifer could conceivably encounter her future self! The consequences of that could be disastrous!
Marty McFly: Doc, what do you mean?
Doc: I foresee two possibilities. One, coming face to face with herself 30 years older would put her into shock and she would simply pass out. Or two, the encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could start a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to our own galaxy.
Marty McFly: Well, that's a relief.More [02/28/2007 12:02:00]
Ardeth Bay: [to Alex] By putting this on, you have started a chain reaction that could bring about the next apocalypse.

Rand: No one will ever live up to what you and Sam had.
Sarah McCaulley: Why?
Rand: I think you're judging people on the wrong scale.
Sarah McCaulley: Why can't it be like that?
Rand: [ponders] ... you're only born perfect?
Sarah McCaulley: ...and it's all downhill from there. Why me Rand?
Rand: What do you mean?
Rand: Why am I not some chemical reaction that will run out on you one day, what makes me special?
Sarah McCaulley: I don't know.More [09/23/2007 12:09:00]
“There are all these scripts where the women, if they're working, are prostitutes and lawyers with an angry streak who'll kill you. It's a reaction to women leaving their men and men being angry about it and saying it on some subconscious level.”More [11/08/2007 12:11:00]
Basil: [Regarding Fidget's note] Offhand I can deduce very little, Only that the words are written with a broad-tip quill pen that has spattered, twice; that the paper is of native Mongolia manufacture, no watermark; and has
[smacks his lips against the paper]
Basil: been gummed, if I'm very much in error...
[smells paper]
Basil: ...by a bat who has been drinking Rodent's Delight, a cheap brandy served only in the seediests pubs.
Dr. Dawson: Hmm. Amazing.
Basil: Oh, not really, doctor. We still don't know where it came from. Perhaps a closer inspection will tell us something.
[Looks at note under microscope]
Basil: Coal dust, clearly of the type used in sewer lamps.
[Takes note and sets it on fire]
Dr. Dawson: Basil!
Basil: Shh. Don't speak.
[He grinds the ashes in a crucible and pours them into a beaker]
Basil: Excuse me, Doctor.
[Takes beaker and a bottle of liquid]
Basil: Steady hand...
[pours a drop into beaker and sets it at the other end of a pipe; he boils a liquid on the other end, watching as it goes through the pipe]
Basil: Come on, come on. Good, bad, bad, good. Come on, come on, come on.
[Liquid finally reaches beaker; chemical explodes]
Basil: Aha! We've done it, old fellow! This chemical reaction could only be triggered by the paper's extreme saturation with distilation of sodium chloride.
Dr. Dawson: Salt water? Great Scott.
Basil: It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, this note came from the riverfront area.
[Pins a map of the river on the wall]
Dr. Dawson: Now, steady on, Basil...
Basil: No, it's elementary, Dawson. We simply look for a seedy pub at the only spot...
[Pins dart on map]
Basil: ...where the sewer connects with the riverfront.More [01/09/2008 12:01:00]
Ben: Come on, this is gonna be fun.
Marcus: About as fun as crabs.
Ben: You would know.
Marcus: Screw that waitress from Fezzywigs, man.
Ben: You did.
Marcus: I didn't know she had bugs in her bush!
Ben: She was scratching herself all night! What do you mean you didn't know? You can't hook up with itchy chicks, Marcus. Everyone knows that.
Marcus: She said it was a reaction to her fabric softener. I saw it, I asked.
Ben: Fabric softener!
Marcus: Look at you Mister Bigshot. Everyone knows that. When's the last time you got laid?
Ben: ...I have sex all the time...
Marcus: -shut up.More [02/11/2008 12:02:00]

Jim Garrison: I don't, I can't... I can't believe they killed him because he wanted to change things. In our time. In our country.
X: Well they've been doing it all through history. Kings are killed, Mr. Garrison, politics is power, nothing more! Oh, don't take my word for it, don't believe me. Do your own work, your own thinking.
Jim Garrison: I can't. The size of this is... beyond me. Testify?
X: Me?
Jim Garrison: Testify.
X: Ha ha. No chance in hell. No, I'd be arrested and gagged, maybe sent to an institution, maybe worse, you too. Now I can give you the background, but you have to find the foreground, the little things. Keep digging. Remember, you're the only person to bring a trial in the murder of John Kennedy. That's important, it's historic.
Jim Garrison: I haven't yet. I don't have much of a case.
X: You don't have a choice anymore. You've become a significant threat to the national security structure. They would have killed you already but you got a lot of light on you. Instead they're trying to destroy your credibility. They already have in many circles in this town. Be honest, your only chance is to come up with a case. Something, anything. Make arrests, stir the shit storm, hope to reach a point of critical mass that'll start a chain reaction of people coming forward, then the government will crack. Remember, fundamentally, people are suckers for the truth - and the truth is on your side, Bubba. I just hope you get a break.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]
Bill: Was my reaction really that surprising?
The Bride: Yes, it was. Could you do what you did? Of course you could. But, I never thought you would or could do that to me.

Josh: [after confessing his feelings to Jessica, he kisses her] So I guess I'd like to know if you have some sort of reaction to this. More specifically, do you want to have dinner with me tomorrow night?
[she doesn't respond at first, and Josh adopts a look of defeat and embarrassment]
Josh: Well, if you'll excuse me, I definitely need another drink.
Jessica: [she stops him] No, wait. I'd love to have dinner with you, but I can't.
Josh: What? Not the season?
Jessica: [laughs nervously] No. I mean I cant have dinner with you because I'm with Helen.
Josh: Oh, you're having dinner with Helen?
Jessica: No. I mean I'm *with* Helen.
Josh: [he looks at her in disbelief] Like *with* with Helen?
Jessica: Right *with* with.
Helen: [Helen enters from the stairwell] Jessica, they're starting to serve dinner.
[Jessica exits]
Helen: Hey, Josh.
Josh: [still can't believe what he's just heard] Helen...
[beat]
Josh: how are you?
Helen: [smiles] I'm good thanks.
[she exits]More [06/16/2008 12:06:00]
Josh: You know Stein, why don't you cut yourself a break. It's obviously not the time to be meeting someone anyway.
Jessica: [sarcastically] Really? What? Not the season?
Josh: No. It's just because you're clearly not open to it.
Jessica: [laughs] Excuse me? I'm sorry. How would you know?
Josh: Well, I do have a little history to draw from. But even if I didn't, you've known Charles here for about an hour and in that time you've dismissed a panoply of men based on factors as reductive as a linguistic misstep, a different view from yours on going dutch, a kind reaction to your legendary lateness, and a genuine interest in yoga. You know, I think it was Anais Nin who said, "We don't see things as they are. We see things as we are."
[chuckles]
Josh: Generally I'm not much of a Nin fan, but I do feel that bit sums you up to a "T", Stein. So I don't think the problem's with these poor men, these freaks and morons, as you put it. I think the problem is with you.More [06/16/2008 12:06:00]

Colonel Tom Edwards:
You speak of Solaranite. But just what is it?



Eros:
Take a can of your gasoline. Say this can of gasoline is the sun. Now, you spread a thin line of it to a ball, representing the earth. Now, the gasoline represents the sunlight, the sun particles. Here we saturate the ball with the gasoline, the sunlight. Then we put a flame to the ball. The flame will speedily travel around the earth, back along the line of gasoline to the can, or the sun itself. It will explode this source and spread to every place that gasoline, our sunlight, touches. Explode the sunlight here, gentlemen, you explode the universe. Explode the sunlight here and a chain reaction will occur direct to the sun itself and to all the planets that sunlight touches, to every planet in the universe. This is why you must be stopped. This is why any means must be used to stop you. In a friendly manner or as (it seems) you want it.



Lieutenant John Harper:
He's mad.



Tanna:
Mad? Is it mad that you destroy other people to save yourselves? You have done this. Is it mad that one country must destroy another to save themselves? You have also done this. How then is it "mad" that one planet must destroy another who threatens the very existence-...



Eros:

Marco:

My simple child reaction of what you did is that you are not funny. Funnier than you is even Stuart Schlossman, who is my friend, and is eleven, and puts walnuts in his mouth and makes noises. What is not funny is to call us names, and what is mostly not funny is how sad you are, and I'd feel sorry for you if it wasn't for how dull you are. And those are the worst-tasting potato chips that I've ever tasted. And that's my opinion from the blue, blue sky.

Radio Announcer:
Because of the obvious threat to untold numbers of citizens due to the crisis that is even now developing, this radio station will remain on the air day and night. This station and hundreds of other radio and TV stations throughout this part of the country are pooling their resources through an emergency network hook-up to keep you informed of all developments. At this hour, we repeat, these are the facts as we know them. There is an epidemic of mass murder being committed by a virtual army of unidentified assassins. The murders are taking place in villages and cities, in rural homes and suburbs with no apparent pattern nor reason for the slayings. It seems to be a sudden general explosion of mass homicide. We have some descriptions of the assassins. Eyewitnesses say they are ordinary-looking people. Some say they appear to be in a kind of trance. Others describe them as being misshapen monsters. At this point, there's no really authentic way for us to say who or what to look for and guard yourself against. Reaction of law enforcement officials is one of complete bewilderment at this hour. Police and sheriff's deputies and emergency ambulances are literally deluded with calls for help. The scene can be best described as mayhem. The mayors of Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and Miami, along with the governments of several eastern and midwestern states indicated that the National Guard may be mobilized at any moment, but that has not happened as yet. The main advice news reporters have been able to get from official sources is to tell private citizens to stay inside their homes behind locked doors. Do not venture outside for any reason until the nature of this crisis has been determined, and until we can advise what course of action to take. Keep listening to radio and TV for special instructions as this crisis develops further. Thousands of office and factory workers are being urged to stay at their places of employment, not to make any attempt to get to their homes. However, in spite of this urging and warning, streets and highways are packed with frantic people trying to reach their families or, apparently, to flee just anywhere. We repeat, the safest course of action at this time is simply to stay where you are. Ladies and gentlemen, we've just received word that the President has called a meeting of his Cabinet to deal with the sudden epidemic of murder that has seized the eastern third of this nation. The meeting is scheduled to convene within the hour. Members of the Presidential Cabinet will be joined by officials of the FBI and military advisors. White House spokesmen are saying there will be an official announcement immediately following that meeting. This is the latest dispatch just received in our news room. The latest word also - this is from nation press services in Washington, D.C. - tells us that the emergency Presidential conference which we just mentioned will include high-ranking scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. So far, the best advice they are able to give the public is this quote from Chief T. K. Dunbar from Camden, North Carolina, who is quoted as saying, "Tell the people for God's sake to get off the streets! Tell them to go home and lock their windows and doors up tight! We don't know what kind of murder-happy characters we have here!" Chief Dunbar's words were worn out in grisly fashion just hours ago near the small, normally peaceful town of Willard, Pennsylvania, where the driver of a tanker truck was mobbed by a cluster of apparently would-be assassins oblivious to all concerns for their own safety and blindly intent on attacking the driver. The tanker trunk went out of control and plowed into the gas pumps at a well-known eatery and truck stop known as Beakman's. The truck and gas pumps caught on fire and exploded, apparently maiming and killing gas station and restaurant employees, together with a dozen or more patrons, motorists, and pedestrians. Several bodies were found mangled and mutilated. Many others appear to have been carried off by the attackers. Eyewitness accounts described the assassins as ordinary-looking people, misshapen monsters, people who look like they're in a trance, and creatures that look like people but behave like animals. Some tell of seeing victims that looked as if they had been torn apart. This whole ghastly story began developing two days ago, and from that point on, these terrible events kept on snowballing in a reign of terror that has not abated. Military personel and law enforcement agencies have been working hard in an attempt to gain some kind of control of this situation, but most of their efforts have been marginally futile up to this particular time.

Cardinal Leone:
And they may make more through ignorance and inexperience.



Cardinal Rahamani:
Our friend Lakota here should be an expert on revolution.

But you have lived under a revolutionary regieme.



Kiril Lakota:
Well, that is not quite right. Marxism in Russia is very conservative.

Kiril Lakota:
Their revolution is for export now.

Kiril Lakota:
Our problem is to match them with our own product.



Cardinal Rahamani:
Which is?



Kiril Lakota:
No, no. Please, please. I would rather listen.



Cardinal Rahamani:
No, we would like to here you.


[others agree]



Kiril Lakota:
We should manufacture the authentic Christian revolution. Work for all, bread for all, dignity for all men.



Cardinal Leone:
But without violence.



Kiril Lakota:
Well, excuse me, but violence is a reaction against a situation that has become intolerable, isn't it?



Cardinal Leone:
Oh?



Kiril Lakota:
In the camps in Siberia we were starved and brualized. I stole. I stole some bread. I fed it crumb by crumb to a man whose jaw had been broken by a guard. I - I fought the guard to save my friend. I could have killed him. That was a terrifying experience. I, a biship, could have killed a man.



Cardinal Rinaldi:
So as a bishop you would give your approval to social disorder?



Kiril Lakota:
I might be forced to except it, as a price for social change, yes.



Cardinal Rinaldi:
You are walking a moral tightrope.



Kiril Lakota:
We all have to walk it. That is what we pay for being men.



Cardinal Rinaldi:
But what if you had killed the guard?


[everyone is listening for the response]

General Dodonna:
The battle station is heavily shielded and carries a firepower greater than half the star fleet. It's defenses are designed around a direct, large-scale assault. A small one-man fighter should be able to penetrate the outer defense.



Gold Leader:
Pardon me for asking, sir, but what good are snub fighters going to be against that?



General Dodonna:
Well, the Empire doesn't consider a small one-man fighter to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by Princess Leia has demonstrated a weakness in the battle station. But the approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight down this trench and skim the surface to this point. The target area is only two meters wide. It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy the station. Only a precise hit will set off a chain reaction. The shaft is ray-shielded, so you'll have to use proton torpedoes.



Wedge Antilles (Red 2):
That's impossible! Even for a computer.



Luke:
It's not impossible. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they're not much bigger than two meters.

WAIT! I can give you anything! The... the... the... the Brass Ring, unlimited freedom to maim and kill! PLUS! Lex Luthor's keen mind, Lex Luthor's savvy, Lex Luthor's school of career guidance...


[Ursa begins crushing his hand]



General Zod:
We already have this without you. You cannot bargain with what you don't have.



Lex Luthor:
[sucking on his thumb to numb the pain] Oh Great One, what I am bargaining with is what YOU do not have: The Son of Jor-El.



General Zod:
The Son of Jor-El?



Lex Luthor:
[confused] I just said that.



General Zod:
Jor-El? Our jailer?



Lex Luthor:
[sarcastically] No, Jor-El the BASEBALL PLAYER...


[Ursa and Non start moving menacingly towards Luthor]



Lex Luthor:
Yes, Jor-El your jailer.



General Zod:
The Son of Jor-El! On this planet!



Lex Luthor:
Perhaps you know him better by his nom de voyage, or the name he travels under: Superman.



General Zod:
So THIS is Superman! How do you know of Jor-El?



Lex Luthor:
Well, Your Excellency, as I explained earlier: I'm about the best there is.



General Zod:
Revenge! We will kill the son of our jailer!



Ursa:
Revenge!



Lex Luthor:
REVENGE! Now we're cooking!



General Zod:
He flies then?



Lex Luthor:
Constantly.



General Zod:
He has powers as we do?



Lex Luthor:
Certainly. But, oh Magnificent One, he is one, while you are three.


[Non growls]



Lex Luthor:
Or four, if you count him twice!



General Zod:
Come! We will bring him to his knees!



Ursa:
Praying!



General Zod:
Yes, to ME!



Lex Luthor:
Wait!


[the Super Villains turn to face Luthor]



Lex Luthor:
First you must find him... and Lex Baby is the only one who knows where he is...

[Steven's reaction to Alex turning their house into a hotel]



Steven:
Alex, parents are conditioned to put up with a few minor accidents when they leave their children home alone. A broken vase, spilt milk on the rug... There was a kangaroo... in my living room.



Alex P. Keaton:
...He was just here for the party dad.



Steven:
Then I guess I'm overreacting.

You want some help with that beer, kid?



Otto:
You're all repo men.



Oly:
What if we are?


[Otto pours his entire beer on the floor]



Bud:
[standing up] You know, kid, uh, usually when when someone pulls shit like that, my first reaction is, I wanna punch his fuckin' lights out. But you know something?



Bud and Oly:
YOU'RE ALL RIGHT.

Allen:
Hi.



Madison:
Hi.



Allen:
Um, is this the big secret you've been keeping from me? Is it, that you're a mermaid, or is there something else?



Madison:
No, that's it.


[remembering his first reaction to her 'reveal']



Madison:
Allen, don't feel guilty.



Allen:
Guilty? About what?



Madison:
About not loving me anymore.



Allen:
Oh, Madison. All the time we were together, you always knew how I was feeling. Can't you tell now?

[talking about the Time Machine]



Marty McFly:
[looks through a camcorder] This is uh... This is heavy duty, Doc. This is great. Uh, does it run, like, on regular unleaded gasoline?



Dr. Emmett Brown:
Unfortunately no, it requires something with a little more kick - plutonium.



Marty McFly:
Uh, plutonium? Wait a minute. Are-


[lowers the camcorder]



Marty McFly:
Are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?



Dr. Emmett Brown:
Hey, hey, hey. Keep rolling. Keep rolling, there.


[Marty raises the camcorder]



Dr. Emmett Brown:
No, no, no, no, no. This sucker's electrical. But I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need.



Marty McFly:
Doc, you don't just walk into a store and-and buy plutonium. Did you rip that off?



Dr. Emmett Brown:
Shhhhhh. Of course. From a group of Libyan nationalists. They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and in turn, gave them a shiny bomb-casing full of used pinball machine parts! Come on! Let's get you a radiation suit. We must prepare to reload.

Bishop:
[Bishop is puzzled by Ripley's reaction towards him] Is there a problem?



Burke:
I'm sorry. I don't know why I didn't even- Ripley's last trip out, the syn- the artificial person malfunctioned.



Ripley:
Malfuctioned?



Burke:
There were problems and a-a few deaths were involved.



Bishop:
I'm shocked. Was it an older model?



Burke:
Yeah, the Hyperdine System's 120-A2.



Bishop:
Well, that explains it then. The A2s always were a bit twitchy. That could never happen now with our behavioral inhibitors. It is impossible for me to harm or by omission of action, allow to be harmed, a human being.

[first lines]



Dr. John Matthewson:
Now, the beta synchrotron sends the electrons through this magnet which bends the course of them down to the reaction vessel. Stay away from that elbow joint. All right. Bran, you want to get that? Now, this is a tunable excimer laser. It's tuned to the exact resonance of the plutonium-239 that's in the reaction vessel down at that end. Now, I think we're all set. Hit it.

Christy Wills:
Just tell me one more time what your solution is to this crisis.



Brantley Foster:
We don't cut, we expand.


[the waitress, Sheila, arrives]



Sheila:
I agree. Expansion is a positive reaction to the universe, while retraction, or cutting back, or pulling off, those are all negative forces. I used to be very negative, and then I took this personality workshop - my whole life turned around. Hiya, my name's Sheila. You make a good-looking couple - how long you been going together?



Brantley Foster:
About 20 minutes.



Sheila:
Ohhhhh, first date, huh? Good luck.



Christy Wills:
No, we're business colleagues.



Sheila:
Colleagues, who needs that? You should go together. You look good together. - Oh, oh, d'you want to order?



Brantley Foster:
Yeah, we need to see some menus, Sheila.



Sheila:
Menus! I'm sorry. - I'm studying to be an actress. I'm a much better actress than I am a waitress. Concentration, that's my big problem. I'll be right back.



Brantley Foster:
Well, Sheila's in favor of expansion.



Christy Wills:
We should bring her to our next executive meeting. I think Art Thomas would like her a lot.



Brantley Foster:
Sheila is also in favor of us seeing each other.



Christy Wills:
Yes, well, Sheila is clearly a nut.



Sheila:
[from across the room] I heard that! You should try to be more positive with your life, or you're gonna wind up miserable.

Joel:
Hi, everybody. I'm Joel Robinson. Welcome to the... show.

Joel:
Say, Tom. What's with the Crow-In-the-Box?



Tom Servo:
Oh, I'm just taking Crow's body temperature down to absolute zero!



Joel:
[shocked] Tom! If you do that, you'll cease all molecular activity! It'll cause a chain reaction that could destroy us all!



Tom Servo:
Yeah, that's how it played out in our scenario. Hey, wait a minute! That would be really stupid!


[Joel puts on thick gloves and opens the chamber]



Joel:
Hang on, Crow! I'm gotcha!


[Joel reaches into the chamber and bumps Crow's head. Crow shatters]



Tom Servo:
Good one, Joel.



Joel:
Oops. We'll be right back.



Tom Servo:
I'm not putting him back together either.

Dr. Forrester:
Alright, we've all just seen the film "Earth Vs. Soup". How many people didn't like the film? Didn't like the film, or just didn't care for it? By show of hands, one-two-three-four-five-six-seven, so all! All didn't like the film. Okay. How many people did like the film? They liked the film? Cindy, you didn't like the film, and now you have your hand about half-way up, so maybe you liked the film a little bit? Would that be correct? Okay, we'll get back to that. Okay, what about the film didn't you like? The film we just saw, "Earth Vs. Soup". What was it about you didn't like, or didn't care for? Say, the plot? Or... yes, Gary.



Gary:
Uh, the plot?



Dr. Forrester:
The plot, Gary didn't like the plot. How many other people didn't like the plot? By show of hands, one-two-three-four-five-six-seven, so, we all didn't like the plot. Why? Why didn't we like the plot? What was it about that we didn't like? Doug, why didn't you like the plot?



Doug:
I liked the plot, it was just too short.



Dr. Forrester:
Ah, you thought it was too short! Okay. What were your favorite characters from the film? If you had one favorite character, who would that character be? The film you just saw, "Earth Vs. Soup", a favorite character such as Mike? Uh... Cindy, yes.



Cindy:
Mike.



Dr. Forrester:
Cindy liked Mike. How many other people liked Mike? By show of hands, one-two-three, okay, three people liked Mike, alright. How many people have an allergic reaction to shellfish? Allergic reaction or...



Tony:
A mild reaction.



Dr. Forrester:
A mild reaction to shellfish. So, Tony, would this keep you from recommending this film to a friend?



Tony:
Yes.



Dr. Forrester:
Yes, it would, yes it would. Because you don't like shellfish. You wouldn't wanna see shellfish in a movie. Okay. What if the soup were a different kind of soup, say it was a chicken stock, or, or something, would you recommend it to a friend if it was a potato soup? Yes? Okay. Cindy, uh, you had your hand...



Cindy:
I don't like soup.



Dr. Forrester:
Oh, that's right, you're the one who doesn't like soup. What's that Gary? Oh, Gary would like a sandwich! Hahahahaha... How many people would like to have seen Julia Ormond naked? Julia... one-two-three-four, so about half, half would like to see Julia Ormond naked. Um... if you had a rat-cage strapped to your face...



Pearl Forrester:
Uh-kay, guys, we've got a lot got a lot of work to do, we had sixty eight percent walk outs, we have to get those numbers down. Also, seventy four percent of the audience didn't like the character of Cruella De Vil, and even though the character wasn't in the movie, we have to change those numbers.



Dr. Forrester:
would you like to see more crackers in the movie? The big kind of crackers, or the small oyster crackers?



Doug:
Saltine?



Dr. Forrester:
Saltines? Yes, good, excellent.

Okay, my little robot friends, but we only pass this way once. This is called "The Godzilla Genealogy Bop." Will you hit it, Professor Cambot? In order to know Godzilla, we've gotta look into his past.



Crow T. Robot:
You know studying genealogy is gonna be a blast!



Joel:
Ahh, you've got it, little robot pal, we're swinging into high.



Tom Servo:
C'mon, let's cut to the chase, ya couple of geeks, and get to the family tree!



Joel:
Well, it started with a nuclear blast and pets that were released.



Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo:
Oh, like baby alligators and other nasty beasts?



Joel:
The fusion reaction caused them to grow a thousand times their size.



Crow T. Robot:
Well, that explains Godzilla's attractive tail and thunderous thighs!



Joel:
Right. Now you're getting it little buddy, but now we must move on. Godzilla's not the only one to benefit from the A-Bomb.



Tom Servo:
Yeah, look! There's Auntie Ness of Scotland's loch! They were married in the spring. And their first born was Godzookie, and now we begin to sing...



Crow T. Robot:
Godzookie went to Hollywood, an agent to the stars. He had an affair with Lorna Luft and smoked those big cigars!



Tom Servo:
And out of the lusty Luft affair Ron Pearlman resulted. Hmm.



Joel:
You know, surgery was considered for him, but nobody was consulted. Oh, I did it again.



Crow T. Robot:
Then Ron met Yoko Ono and they began to spawn. A couple of hundred horrible things as green as Forest Lawn.



Tom Servo:
There they are: There's Kermit the Frog, the Swamp Thing, Hulk and Ernest Borgnine, too!



Crow T. Robot:
But Ernest Borgnine isn't green!



Tom Servo:
Well you put him on a boat and he is!



Joel

What?



Tom Servo:
Hey! Who's that down at the bottom, a-wallowing in his shame?



Crow T. Robot:
Oh that's just Steve Guttenberg of Police Academy fame.

Huh.

Doc:
No, no, no Marty, that could result in a-


[gasps]



Doc:
Great Scott! Jennifer could conceivably encounter her future self! The consequences of that could be disastrous!



Marty McFly:
Doc, what do you mean?



Doc:
I foresee two possibilities. One, coming face to face with herself 30 years older would put her into shock and she'd simply pass out. Or two, the encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy.



Marty McFly:
Well, that's a relief.

Impossible! Once the reaction starts, it'll spread to all the turbinium in the planet. Mars will go into global meltdown. That's why the aliens never turned it on.
