Just thought of another one...

Alan: I don't even balance my checkbook on down-time. I have an abacus at home for that.




There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those that don't.

Compucore, I b'lieve it's something along the lines of: "Now how are you going to rule the world if you can't solve a few unsolvable problems?"

Good ol' Flynn

"Like high command says, there's no problems only solutions."-Flynn

That's what he says if I remember right.
I wonder if that was hinting to Journeys song Only Solutions? Hey you never know.

Okay, I think the gridbugs got a hold of the "Quote" script in this thread.

Check the quote code on your previous post curtishart. That's happened before here. You can use the edit button in your post to fix it.

Well, that was sort of an intentionally cocky remark to Dillinger in Alan's emphasis that he only works at work and doesn't get paid enough to buy a PC at home.

I think anyway.

IIRC, in the book and the script the word 'abacus' was originally 'Honeywell'

I think the corniest lines are the ones from Dr. Gibbs, when he talks about digitizing the orange.

Lora: "Well, here goes nothing."
Dr. Gibbs: "Yeah, interesting. Did you hear what you just said? Here goes nothing."
Lora: "Well, what I meant was-"
Dr. Gibbs: "Actually what we propose to do is change something into nothing and back again. You might just as well have said here goes something, here comes nothing."

It gets worse when Alan shows up, he and Lora join in.

Alan: "You two having fun disintegrating things?"
Dr. Gibbs: "Not disintegrating, digitizing. A laser dismantles the molecular structure of the object, and molecules remain suspended in the laser beam. Then when the computer plays out the model, the molecules fall back into place, and voila!"
Alan: "Great. Can it send me to Hawaii?"
Lora: "Yeah, but you've got to purchase your program 30 days in advance."

That is the biggest load of nonsense I've ever heard. Molecules suspended in a laser beam.

Lisberger also cracked up at this point, during the commentary. He said something like, "If only it were that simple!".
