physics

If anybody says he can think about quantum physics without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It should be possible to explain the laws of physics to a barmaid.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced -- by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Nothing is accidental in the universe -- this is one of my Laws of Physics -- except the entire universe itself, which is Pure Accident, pure divinity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Today's particle physics describe light as a crumple in space, and we may have deformed space in such a way that they noticed something peculiar - and they had the ability to investigate it.More [05/04/2006 12:05:00]
Preacher: Einstein's theory of relativity. Grab hold of a hot pan, second can seem like an hour. Put your hands on a hot woman, an hour can seem like a second. It's all relative.

Miller: Smitty have you seen... anything unusual at all?
Smith: No, I haven't seen anything and I don't need to see anything sir but I can tell you... this ship is fucked.
Dr. Weir: Well, thank you for that scientific analysis, Mr Smith.
[smirks]
Smith: Yeah, well you don't exactly have to be a scientist to figure it out, do ya?
[grabs Dr. Weir by his uniform]
Miller: [pulls Smith away] All right, all right!
Smith: You break all the laws of physics and you seriously think there wouldn't be a price? You went and killed the last fucking crew, and now you wanna kill us as well!More [10/18/2007 12:10:00]
Jim Garrison: The FBI says they can prove it through physics in a nuclear laboratory. Of course they can prove it. Theoretical physics can also prove that an elephant can hang off a cliff with its tail tied to a daisy! But use your eyes, your common sense.More [05/05/2008 12:05:00]

[consoling a grieving Bannister]



Cally Oaks:
You know, my father used to say that the three primary colors of grief are despair, pain, and anger. But that it's the nature of crystals to scatter light so that in all of our grief there are other spectrums, other colors. Like the color Courage, the color Strength, and the color Love. He'd try and put physics over a sentence.

Claire Standish:
You know why guys like you knock everything?



John Bender:
Oh, this should be stunning.



Claire Standish:
It's because you're afraid.



John Bender:
Oh God, you richies are so smart, that's exactly why I'm not heavy into activities.



Claire Standish:
You're a big coward.



Brian Johnson:
I'm in the math club.



Claire Standish:
See, you're afraid that they won't take you, you don't belong, so you have to just dump all over it.



John Bender:
Well, it wouldn't have anything to do with you activities people being assholes, now would it?



Claire Standish:
Well, you wouldn't know, you don't even know any of us.



John Bender:
Well, I don't know any lepers, but I'm not going to run out and join one of their fucking clubs.



Andrew Clark:
Hey. Let's watch the mouth, huh?



Brian Johnson:
I'm in the physics club too.



John Bender:
Excuse me a sec. What are you babbling about?



Brian Johnson:
Well, what I had said was I'm in the math club, uh, the Latin, and the physics club... physics club.



John Bender:
Hey, Cherry. Do you belong to the physics club?



Claire Standish:
That's an academic club.



John Bender:
So?



Claire Standish:
So academic clubs aren't the same as other kinds of clubs.



John Bender:
Ah... but to dorks like him, they are. What do you guys do in your club?



Brian Johnson:
Well, in physics we... we talk about physics, properties of physics.



John Bender:
So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right?

Annie Savoy:
These are the ground rules. I hook up with one guy a season. Usually takes me a couple weeks to pick the guy - kinda my own spring training. And, well, you two are the most promising prospects of the season so far, so I just thought we should kinda get to know each other.



Crash Davis:
Time out. Why do you get to choose?



Annie Savoy:
What?



Crash Davis:
Why do you get to choose? I mean, why don't I get to choose, why doesn't he get to choose?



Annie Savoy:
Well, actually, nobody on this planet ever really chooses each other. I mean, it's all a question of quantum physics, molecular attraction, and timing. Why, there are laws we don't understand that bring us together and tear us apart. Uh, it's like pheromones. You get three ants together, they can't do dick. You get 300 million of them, they can build a cathedral.


[Crash laughs]



Ebby Calvin LaLoosh:
So is somebody going to go to bed with somebody or what?



Annie Savoy:
Honey, you are a regular nuclear meltdown. You better cool off. Ha ha, ha ha!


[to Crash]



Annie Savoy:
Oh, where are you going?



Crash Davis:
After 12 years in the minor leagues, I don't try out. Besides, uh, I don't believe in quantum physics when it comes to matters of the heart.



Annie Savoy:
What do you believe in, then?



Crash Davis:
Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.

Donald 'Shadow' Rimgale:
In a word, Brian, what is this job all about?



Firefighter Brian McCaffrey:
Fire.



Donald 'Shadow' Rimgale:
It's a living thing, Brian. It breathes, it eats, and it hates. The only way to beat it is to think like it. To know that this flame will spread this way across the door and up across the ceiling, not because of the physics of flammable liquids, but because it wants to. Some guys on this job, the fire owns them, makes 'em fight it on it's level, but the only way to truly kill it is to love it a little. Just like Ronald.

Vinny Gambini:
Is it possible the 2 defendants...


[looks at judge]



Vinny Gambini:
went into the Sac-O-Suds, picked 22 specific items off of the shelf, had the clerk take the money, make change, then leave. Then 2 different men, drive up...


[Seeing Mr. Tipton shake his head no]



Vinny Gambini:
Don't shake your head I'm not finished yet. Wait until you hear the whole thing you can understand what it is that I'm askin'. Then, two different men drive up in a similar looking car, do into the store, shoot the clerk, rob him, then leave?



Mr. Tipton:
No. They didn't have enough time.



Vinny Gambini:
Why not? How long was they in the store for?



Mr. Tipton:
5 minutes.



Vinny Gambini:
5 minutes? How do you know? Did you look at your watch?



Mr. Tipton:
No.



Vinny Gambini:
Oh, oh, oh, you tesitfied earlier that you saw the boys go into the store, and you had just begun to cook your breakfast and you were just getting ready to eat when you heard the shot.



Mr. Tipton:
That's right.



Vinny Gambini:
So obviously it takes you 5 minutes to cook your breakfast.



Mr. Tipton:
That's right.



Vinny Gambini:
That's right, so you knew that. You remember what you had?



Mr. Tipton:
Eggs and grits.



Vinny Gambini:
Eggs and grits. I like grits, too. How do you cook your grits? Do you like them regular, creamy or al dente?



Mr. Tipton:
Just regular I guess.



Vinny Gambini:
Regular. Instant grits?



Mr. Tipton:
No self respectin' Southerner uses instant grits. I take pride in my grits.



Vinny Gambini:
So, Mr. Tipton, how could it take you 5 minutes to cook your grits when it takes the entire grit eating world 20 minutes?



Mr. Tipton:
I don't know, I'm a fast cook I guess.



Vinny Gambini:
I'm sorry I was all the way over here I couldn't hear you did you say you were a fast cook, that's it?



Mr. Tipton:
Yeah.



Vinny Gambini:
Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than anywhere else on the face of the earth?



Mr. Tipton:
I don't know.



Vinny Gambini:
Well, I guess the laws of physics cease to exist on top of your stove. Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

Vinny Gambini:
[across beside the jury] What? I'm sorry I was over there. Did you just say you were a fast cook? Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than any place on the face of the earth?



Mr. Tipton:
I don't know.

But they're engaged.



Brodie:
Doesn't matter, can't happen.



T.S. Quint:
Why not? It's bound to come up.



Brodie:
It's impossible, Lois could never have Superman's baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle the sperm? I guarantee you he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry her child?



T.S. Quint:
Sure, why not?



Brodie:
He's an alien, for Christ sake. His Kyrptonian biological makeup is enhanced by earth's yellow sun. If Lois gets a tan the kid could kick right through her stomach. Only someone like Wonder Woman has a strong enough uterus to carry his kid. The only way he could bang regular chicks is with a kryptonite condom. That would kill him.



T.S. Quint:
How is it that I go from the verge of hot Floridian sex with Brandi to man of steel coital debates with you in the food court?



Brodie:
Cookie stand isn't part of the food court.



T.S. Quint:
Of course it is.



Brodie:
The food court is downstairs. The cookie stand is upstairs. It not like we're talking quantum physics here.



T.S. Quint:
The cookie stands counts as an eatery, eateries are part of the food court.



Brodie:
Bullshit. Eateries that operate within the designated square downstairs count as food court. Anything outside, of said designated sqaure, counts as an autonomous unit for mid-mall snacking. Now, if your going to wax intellectual about the subject...

Zed:
May I ask why you felt little Tiffany deserved to die?



James Edwards:
Well, she was the only one that actually seemed dangerous at the time, sir.



Zed:
How'd you come to that conclusion?



James Edwards:
Well, first I was gonna pop this guy hanging from the street light, and I realized, y'know, he's just working out. I mean, how would I feel if somebody come runnin' in the gym and bust me in my ass while I'm on the treadmill? Then I saw this snarling beast guy, and I noticed he had a tissue in his hand, and I'm realizing, y'know, he's not snarling, he's sneezing. Y'know, ain't no real threat there. Then I saw little Tiffany. I'm thinking, y'know, eight-year-old white girl, middle of the ghetto, bunch of monsters, this time of night with quantum physics books? She about to start some shit, Zed. She's about eight years old, those books are WAY too advanced for her. If you ask me, I'd say she's up to something. And to be honest, I'd appreciate it if you eased up off my back about it.

Betty Warren:
[Betty's Third Editorial Voice Over] Wellesley girls who are married have become quite adept at balancing their obligations. One hears such comments as, "I'm able to baste the chicken with one hand and outline the paper with the other." While our mothers were called to the workforce for lady liberty it is our duty, nay, obligation to reclaim our place in the home bearing the children that will carry our traditions into the future. One must pause to consider why; Ms. Katherine Watson, instructor in the art history department, has decided to declare war on the holy sacrament of marriage. Her subversive and political teachings encourage our Wellesley girls to reject the roles they were born to fill.



Katherine Watson:
Slide - Contemporary art...



Connie Baker:
No, that's just an advertisement...



Katherine Watson:
Quiet. Today you just listen. What will future scholars see when they study us, a portrait of women today? There you are ladies: the perfect likeness of a Wellesley graduate, Magna Cum Laude, doing exactly what she was trained to do. Slide - a Rhodes Scholar, I wonder if she recites Chaucer while she presses her husband's shirts. Slide - hehe, now you physics majors can calculate the mass and volume of every meatloaf you make. Slide - A girdle to set you free. What does that mean? What does that mean? What does it mean? I give up, you win. The smartest women in the country, I didn't realize that by demanding excellence I would be challenging... what did it say?


[Walks over to a student and picks up her copy of the editorial]



Katherine Watson:
What did it say? Um... the roles you were born to fill. Is that right?

Payne:
While I was a physics major in college, we studied something called the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. It proves that there is no such thing as zero tolerance. It doesn't exist. You basically can't be 100% sure of anything no matter how hard you try. Accidents... happen.
