Lunkwill: Hey, that's not bad!
Arthur Dent: Fine. Fine, take it. Because my head is filled with questions and I can assure you no answer to any one of them has ever brought me one iota of happiness. Except for one. The one. The only question I've ever wanted an answer to - is she the one? The answer bloody well isn't forty-two, it's yes. Undoubtedly, unequivocally, unabashadly yes. And for one week, one week in my sad little blip of an existence, it made me happy.
Trillian: That's a good answer...
Lunkwill: Rubbish, we don't want to be happy, we want to be famous!

What a bore... take some bennies an' stay up all night with your face stuck in a bunch of books an' your thumbs up your ass... Yes... yes... I remember the time when it was all very inspiring and enlightening... all this history and literature and sociology shit... You think learning is a really big thing an' you become this big fuckin' intellectual and sit around tryin' ta out-intellectual all the other big fuckin' intellectuals... you spend years and years with your nose buried in these goddamn tomes while out there the world is passin' you by... and all the stuff to see and all th' kicks an' girls are all out there... an' ME, a writer ad a poet who should be havin' adventures an' experiencing all the diversities and paradoxes and ironies of life and passin' over all the roads of the world and digging all the cities and towns and rives and oceans... and making all them chicks!

Florida:
[after discovering J.J's illegal gambling] J.J, there are two roads out of the ghetto. So far, we've managed to stay on the right road.



J.J.:
That's what's taking us so long to get out of here! Look, Ma, tell me one dude in the projects who's got a future that ain't in the rackets.



Florida:
You, because you just resigned.



J.J.:

Narrator:
My life fades. The vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos. Ruined dreams. This wasted land. But most of all, I remember The Road Warrior. The man we called "Max". To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time. When the world was powered by the black fuel. And the desert sprouted great cities of pipe and steel. Gone now, swept away. For reasons long forgotten, two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing. They built a house of straw. The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked. But nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. The cities exploded. A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men. On the roads it was a white line nightmare. Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice. And in this maelstrom of decay, ordinary men were battered and smashed. Men like Max. The warrior Max. In the roar of an engine, he lost everything. And became a shell of a man, a burnt out, desolate man, a man haunted by the demons of his past, a man who wandered out into the wasteland. And it was here, in this blighted place, that he learned to live again...

Narrator:
These motorroads were built after the Chinese invasion. The main reason for these roads is to enable the invaders to cart Tibet's resources away. The Chinese have felled over 60 % of Tibet's already scant trees. The forests of eastern and southern Tibet were twice as large as the British Isles. Up to one thousand truckloads a day depart from these areas to China, leaving behind irreparable ecological damage. The effect on the eight main rivers of Asia, which have their sources here, are already catastrophic.

Denis Dimbleby Bagley:
We're living in a shop. The world is one magnificent fucking shop, and if it hasn't got a price tag, it isn't worth having. The Greatest freedom of all is the freedom of choice, and that's the difference between you and me, boil. I was brought up to believe in that, and so should you, but you don't want freedom, do you? You don't even want roads. God I never want to go on another train as long as I live! Roads represent the fundamental right of man to have access to the good things in life. Without roads, established family favorites would become elite as delicacies. Potter's soap would be for the few. There'd be no more tea bags, no instant potatoes, no long life cream. Chewing gum would probably disappear, so would porkpies. There'd be no aerosols, no tin spaghetti, or baked beans with six frankfurters. Foot deodorizers would climax with the hope of replacement! When the hydrolized mono-sodium glutomate reserves ran out, food would rot in its packets. Jesus Christ, there wouldn't be any more packets! Packaging would vanish from the face of the earth. But worst of all, there'd be no more cars, and more than anything, people love their cars. They have a right to them. They have to sweat all day in some stinking factory making disposable cigarette lighters or everlasting Christmas trees, by Christ, they're entitled to them! They're entitled to any innovation technology brings. Whether it's ten percent more of it or fifteen percent off of it. They're entitled to one of four important new ingredients. Why should anyone have to clean their teeth without important new ingredients? Why the hell shouldn't they have their CZT? How dare some smutty Marxist carbunkle presume to deny them it? They love their CZT! They want it, they need it, they positively adore it, and by Christ, while I've got air in my body they're going to get it! They're going to get it bigger - and brighter - and better. I'll put CZT in their margarine if necessary; shove vitamins in their toilet rolls. If happiness means the whole world standing on a double layer of foot deodorizers, I, Bagley, shall see that they get it! By God I will. I shall not cease, till Jerusalem is builded here, on England's green and pleasant lands!

Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
[Lee and Longstreet are discussing Harrison's report on the Union army on the night of 30 June] He says the lead element is here with the Third Corps...


[he points on the map]



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
...the Sixth right behind...


[he points to a different spot]



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
...supported by a column of Federal cavalry. Seven corps altogether. The First and Eleventh are above Taneytown, and there's more cavalry two hours east. There may be as many as 100,000 altogether.



General Robert E. Lee:
Do you believe the man, this Mr. Harrison?



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
No choice. Oh, you remember him, sir; the actor from Mississippi?



General Robert E. Lee:
An actor? We move on the word of an actor?



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Can't afford not to.



General Robert E. Lee:
[Lee takes off his glasses and sits down in a camp chair] There would be some word from General Stuart. General Stuart would not leave us blind.



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Oh, one other thing. Hooker's been replaced. George Meade's the new commander. Harrison read it in the Yankee papers.



General Robert E. Lee:
[thoughtfully] George Meade. Pennsylvania man. Meade would be cautious, I think. Take him some time to get organized. Perhaps we should move more swiftly. There may be an opportunity here.



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Yes, sir.



General Robert E. Lee:
Well...


[Lee gets up and walks back over to the map table]



General Robert E. Lee:
...no reason to delay. I think we should concentrate here.


[he points to a spot on the map]



General Robert E. Lee:
All the roads converge just east of this gap, and this junction will be very necessary.



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Yes, sir.



General Robert E. Lee:
I left my spectacles over there. What is the name of this town?



Lieutenant General James Longstreet:

I can remember a time when every city street would lead me back to you. When the road signs guided me home and I was never lost. I don't know how I got scrambled, but now the roads lead nowhere. The streets are dead ends and I'm running in the wrong direction. Sometimes, Janie, I think I'm getting close, but I'm still so far away. This is a storey about what it's like to be lost, just minutes away from your own home. I don't know if this story's over yet but this is how it began.

Wellington:
[to Uxbridge] I never mind men running as long as they come back.



Wellington:
[to the retreating troups] My lads, you look blown from your run. Come, do take breath a moment. Then we will go back and try if we can do better. Take heart, soon have some guns up.



Wellington:
Uxbridge.



Uxbridge:
Wellington?



Wellington:
When?



Uxbridge:
Oh, they do come I assure you. What of the Prussians. Any word at all?



Wellington:
I tell the Prussians we'll support them but only if not attacked here. They'll have to fight without us today.



Wellington:

Prince William of Orange:
[the Prince has returned to the group and Sharpe has joined them] Sharpe, you hear those guns, Sharpe? Far off. That's the Prussians pasting up the French. Do you hear it. Listen.



Prince William of Orange:

Wellington:
Oh, they've always had guns your royal highness. What they haven't always had is you as a target.



Richard Sharpe:

Wellington:

This is the gun line. It runs from shack to shack, clear around the yard. You are now inside the gun line. You step outside the gun line without my permission, you will be shot. You trip and fall over the gun, you will be shot. You spit, you pee, you so much as stick your johnson over the gun line, you will be shot.
