Can’t Buy Me Love (1987) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi! Patrick Dempsey “No Talent” Agency circa late 80s, how may I destroy your childhood memories today?

oh, you say you have a role for a sex crazed high school senior or college freshman who is kind of dorky but the ladies find him dreamy despite his low social status and penchant for low paying jobs like mowing lawns and delivering pizza?

Yeah we got those here. We got a whole shit can of those here. We shave them once a day and anything below the eyebrows gets a waxing. The ladies love it! Young and old.

Well here is as an inappropriate time as any to talk about money. Dempsey is going to need somewhere between .35 cents and 200 dollars for his services. You can pay that in cash or hats.

While, money can’t buy you love, hats can buy you a Dempsey.

Yes we take Neiman Marcus and Sam Goody’s. I mean it is the late 80s after all and Goody Got It.

Severe.

Ronnie likes to cut grass and wash cars and look at stars and rent cheerleaders by the month.

Are all teenagers in movies hairless? I feel like we were a lot hairier in my hometown.

She shared her poetry with Ronnie. He is friend-zoned.

If she can charge so much on her mom’s card why did she take Ronald’s money. Couldn’t she just have bought another suede suit on her mom’s card and pretended like it was something else.

Deep Blue Sea (1999) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

I’m just an average looking white guy named Jim  in a minority majority horror thriller film…what could possibly go ….ahhh my arm.

Oh, speaking of white guys. Have you seen my uncle Bob? He got me this job. He is this fancy looking white fella who keeps Benjamin’s seat warm back in the city. You met Benjamin right? He’s our investor who can’t shut up about avalanches.

Anyway, my uncle Bob just sits there keeping Benjamin’s seat “ass warm” looking around like he is part of whatever conversation is going on. But he’s really just there because Benjamin can’t get his own ass warm anymore. Not since the avalanche. Oh God, don’t get him started.

Well, thanks for listening. Now excuse me, I have to go be a shark propelled projectile strapped to a gurney. Things don’t end well for me. Could be worse I suppose.

Deep Blue Sea (1999) – Like watching a movie about sharks while Samuel L Jackson is telling you the plot to Avalanche. Uh oh. better get Mako.

SHOW NOTES

I think there is a water motif

Pasty white teens make out! to what sounds like…Good and Plenty.

Better than average teens on the top of the boat…

Oh no! They are going to get the ocean drunk on wine!

This shark is like the Give a Hoot owl of the ocean! I SAID A HOOT DON’T POLUTE…SNAP SNAP SNAP I got your pasty white girlfriend!

Music..Music…Music…

Bad boy friend is bad. Headbutts his girl off the boat. Then

Hey! It’s Ahab to the rescue!. Yay! The great white savior!

It’s that lady who is in everything. Spice…Debbie Spice.. ….no… SAFFRON BURROWS!

A money man who’s name is Franklin.

haha!!! Why is he standing over a white guy in a chair?

Each time you told him she was dead! Lie lady! Why would you tell your dad EACH TIME!!

Wait…so she can fly a plane…but chooses to be shuttled by Helicopter…I’m not say you can do either or if you can do one…but…

Alcatraz Floats! I got IT on the brain and that makes me giddy

“What do you think Amigos…She’s a 12 footer.”

hehe…Samuel L. Jackson’s Tattoo is good…not great…but passable. I’m getting old.

So far this music is all over the place. But I like it…seems to flow with the emotion of each scene..also a few homages.

Is the license plate ate by a shark joke over yet?

“Beneath it’s glass surface. A world of gliding monsters.” – Perfect Line.

A Skeleton Crew on the weekend.

“You trust me…do you know why? Because I’m trust worthy.”

A con recognizes a con.

Money Money…make the world go round.

A foul mouthed fowl. So are we to assume the parrot has been exposed to many expletive based gangsta songs?

A pastry chef on the floating Alcatraz?

Well them sharks ate them other shawks. Little baby shawk.

Chef and bartender.

Foreshadowing? Leave dying to the white folks?

I wish I had started counting all the ocean puns from the start.

Sharks never go blind, have cancer or stuff.

They are hunting in packs…like wild dogs. They only eat other sharks.

Sharks can’t swim backwards or recognize guns. It’s impossible.

In 1999 did we still have static on screens when cameras were eating by sharks!

Carter has one move. Swim away…psyche! I’m in your sharky face!

This movie is full of puns.

Bad dreams? What does a shark dream about?

“This? oh it’s just some Alzheimer patient’s brain matter that we keep alive in the lab to experiment on. The patient? They are fine. Everytime they ask about the surgical wound on their head we just tell they there loved ones are dead. We really are good people. Wanna touch it? ”

Goodbye arm.

Man, this film is really invested in saving Jim. We followed his story all the way up stairs and to the helicopter…and uh oh…there he goes into the drink.

Was that place made of explosives? How much fuel do you need for floating Alcatraz?

I love that LL is the every man in this movie

“Tell me what that is” …well….it’s Jim the projectile.

This movie was made to be sacked.

Without the slow motions scenes this movie would be about an hour.

This movie was influenced or parallel to Michael Bay films?

I’m glad they got the Mall Kiosk Map of Floating Alcatraz in this movie.

If a bird turns and runs…you do the same.

Think so? Not a chance.

It’s always the shark movie problem. How to get the sharks to the people or the people to the sharks.

I love that LL never names the bird…he just calls him bird.

The confrontations of the brainiacs

Other than the floating playboy and the over sexed teens at the start of this movie…there is no love affair in the movie. Ok…maybe LL and his bird.

Uh oh…better get Mako…

Your plan “is swimming out of here?”

Cooked in his own oven. LL Cool is about to get hot.

Sharks ain’t got no good vision

No matter how bad your situation is. There is always somebody got a story about a situation that is worse. “You think water and sharks are  bad. I once had to walk out of an avalanche.”

Getting chomped giving your “come together” speech is the best.

Kind of sad though. I was really hoping we were going to go with the rich guy saving us and not the not so love-able white guy ex-con.

Grab my hand! This guys love that trope. He loved it in Cliffhanger as well.

Wait…that’s it…! I got it. To the Mall Kiosk Map!

“Who ya gonna trust? The white guy from Cal Tech?”

The only sexual tension going on is between Preach and Cal Tech.

Perfect omelette…2 eggs not 3. No milk.

Flipped a couple of switches…Thumbs up and happy face…yeah…that ain’t gonna last.

Sure…humans can swim…but should we? We aren’t very good at it. We are engineered to do it.

Message in a bottle? Nope. Cassette tape in a Ziplock.

Nope..not a shark…it’s your buddy.

Well about time. I was wondering when the attractive doctor was going to strip down to her clean and matching underwear. Very creative way to get her stripped down.

So your plan is to bring as much attention to your area as possible?

Nooo…not LL!!

Grote…stab to the eye.

This shark is wanting to Free Willy on out of here.

Let’s A-Team this shit. Is there a new A-Team TV show that is a more recent reference?

Bait? What? Masterbate? What? Come to Mama.

Damnit Susan! “Huh…blood? In the water? chomp chomp chomp!!”

Susan’s plan was a poor plan.

What if your plan?  Jump in the water? Punch the shark? Do that Toro Toro Toro thing?

LL is like…let me save this day.

You know. I’m not too broken up about Susan. She used to wait for her dad to forget about his wife’s death then tell him all over again.

Did they use enough explosives? Carter may have over estimated.

So Carter and Preacher hook up?

They just blew up a 45 foot shark…you better start worrying about regular sharks. that is a lot of blood.

LL Cool J has a song for the movie!!

 

 

 

 

 

Strange Brew (1983) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi you hosers, Geez I just woke up, I don’t know about an intro. Just, take off you nobs,

You’re still here…. well, then let me tell you how to get free Filmsacks:

First, you bribe Scott at the front desk with a couple of Jelly’s. He has a whole drawer full. I’m not even sure he eats them. Just a whole drawer full of Jelly’s. Weird eh.

But THAT will get you in to see Randy.

Now Randy likes to hand out jobs. especially if you threaten to sue him. Currently, he has half of Canada at his employ. Handing out jobs like free beers at Oktoberfest.

Once you have a job, head down to our top secret lair where we keep Ibbott and his haunted  DVD disc changer. Just grab a DVD like Strange Brew. You doon’t worry about Ibbott. He’s usually in the toilet behind the fake wall taking care of “Ibbott business.” I think he gets into Scott’s Jelly drawer a good bit.

Where am I during all of this? Right here. Writing intros and drinking dad’s beer.

So sit back and get some corn. eh. It’s going to be a doosey.

The Manhattan Project (1986) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi, Yes Sir Mr. President, per your orders, we dropped that bomb on those filthy cold war Russians.  But I’m saddened to report sir… that we had some pretty unexpected results… Instead of dirty burnt radiated Ruskies it appears all we did was make their hair fuller and shinier. They couldn’t be happier when we flew back by. Where did you say we got that plutonium from? Ithaca?

or

Yes, Hello…is this Kremlin? This is top secret KGB agent reporting in. I have just returned from American nuclear facility in Ithaca. I have brought with me samples of American plutonium. I must say the mission was easier than we had imagined. Ronald Regan American’s are so over confident of their security that they left full sample on a table unguarded. However, if this sample represents the full force of the American’s might then we can sleep well comrade. Early tests have shown that their plutonium is not a very effective explosive. I feel so safe with this container that I slept with it under my pillow last night.  I was surprised to discover this morning that it had sprung a leak during my slumber. When I woke up I was sure that I would have radiation sickness. But instead my hair has never been fuller or shinier. and smell it….oh…this is a phone joke.

Yeah I know that’s not how that works. But this movie could be called “That’s not how any of this works…now get out of my glove box KidGyver.

Happy bike riding music.  Down a country road. You don’t see that much anymore

What are those? Motion Detectors. What do they Do?! Detect some kind of motion?

“Three Yellow Suits to loading please”

Is this some a Mountain Dew bottling facility?

I could use about 2 minutes less of watching robots load plutonium onto racks.

Watch me light my cigar with a laser. Oh GOD! I CUT OFF MY FINGER! Do lasers light stuff or burn holes through stuff.

That whole place is nothing but warning. Radiation. High Power. Do Not Enter. Do Not Touch.

KidGyver keeps some weird shit in his bag. One scrubbing glove his mother has been looking for for weeks.

For reals. Do you have any idea how much a bottle of VO5 is! I’ll kill ya.

First. Why the hell would you steal plutonium..in a plastic jar no less…and replace it with VO5. They are going to bomb Russian and all that is going to happen is some very clean smelling Ruskies. Is that offensive? You drop a Vidal Sassoon bomb on me.

What does it say about V05 when the color and consistency is that of Plutonium congealment

So he is going to duct tape nuclear material to his remote controlled Subaru? Sounds like a good plan

This is a really elaborate plan he came up with. A modern movie would have a planning montage to lay the heist out.

This has gone from cute little prank to “they are going to bury this kid under the federal prison after they shoot him.”

Where did that security guard find lug nuts…cause I never have extra lug nuts hanging around.

That married security guard is drooling over a high school girl.

I’ve seen more of the inside of glove boxes in this movie that all other movies combined. Makes me think I am not maximizing my glove box

C4 is surprisingly easy to acquire in movies

Did the VO5 got 99.998%? (update: nope. it was flat. Just like my hair after using VO5)

This is the most fun anyone has had making a mass murder device. Why is this music so happy at the weirdest times.

Son…why are all these cantaloupes cut up weird. are you experimenting…sexually? We got an American Pie situation in the kitchen but with cantaloupes.

Just a little murderous mayhem is all

This is more nefarious than Flubber

This move has more drug references than I would have suspected

Jenny…you save’ed us…I want to be your wife

No way would they let this kid go this far. He would have been dead already

Thing that grossed out Scott. Kissing after smoking or putting in an ear bud after taking it out of a sleeping guys ear on the bus.

The one black guy in this movie has to hand the white mom the phone. ANSWER YOUR PHONE BITCH

People used to never hang up pay phones

Don’t make me put my nuclear weapon together.

This is how nuclear war happens. Escalation

this is the worst Ithaca Standoff I have ever seen.

Shoot her!

The bomb turned on spontaneously. So a kid who made a home made nuclear bomb made a mistake. That’s an F

This plan has went from bad to worse.

or

The Last Dragon (1985) – Like bad sushi. You’ll have your head stuck in a trash can faster than Richie can be a smartass.

SHOW NOTES

Let’s get right to the music and flexing.

Oh Motown. Why are we not using classic Motown music?

Is this Weird Al singing?

This is more crotch shots than I am comfortable with.

Let’s practice Martial Arts….and eat rice!! Chop chop.

Time to switch up to boxing

When your master tries to kill you while you are training. Take a hint.

Leroy is my karate name

The final level. You know without knowing.

Masters think stuff is funny.

Every Samuri needs a Master…or he is Ronin and nobody wants to be Ronin in New York.

How did you end up with Bruce Lee’s medallion? did you beat him up for this?

Meanwhile down at the docks…a black man in a giant hat struts his way to the subway and china town.

uhh…I am tryin watch a movie here. Jam box in the aisle.

Am I meanest? Sho Nuff Shogun

Shade shades.

The Shogun of Harlem is here to watch a movie…

This movie has more interruptions than a Friday night at my house.

BRUCE LEROY!! ahah BRUUUUUUUCE LEEEEROY

Skinny little lizards like you…

Balcony kick!

Off brand Nike karate shoes

Freezer full of pig.

This is like the Lex Luther of white people. What’s in that tub.

Coke is it!

I don’t like the portrayal of white folks in this movie. I LOVE IT!

The great white hopeless.

My video hot pick of the week is DeBarge

There is a DeBarge music video right in the middle of their movie.

You let the order A la carte!

Video Game King!

There is a lot of shiny shirts in this movie.

Who was the costume designer?

JJ the white guy.

Was Motown trying to reinvent itself?

Never say never at Heavens Elevator door. 7th Heaven  with my cloud crowd.

Eddie Arcadian does not like to be turned down.

The clown crowd thinks they have a chance with the star. Stalker bait.

Meanwhile, Leroy just happens by. EYE CONTACT…lots of it.

If you are going to fight like Bruce Lee you have to make faces like Bruce Lee

If these bad guys had cell phones they could have back up in no time. Also, none of these bad guys had guns. Just a switchblade.

Bruce Jerry Curl Leroy

Such magical music after the fight…and now he is gone. TAXI!

Dangit Leroy…you lost your fancy medallion

Angela is a hot 80s mess that looks like a pig pissed in her eye. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN!

Yep…Leroy…you just had to be a bad ass didn’t ya.

Yeah…big black guys with chains and clubs.

Johnny the no Martial Arts Asian

Leroy is wearing that Bruce Lee thing

Limp Wimp Leroy.

Kiss my converse

The initial bullying from the bullies.

Rudy!

Black man with a pizza shop. Just direct ya feet to Danny’s pizza.

Why is Leroy talking like a weirdo. He grew up in that house…he didn’t come over on a boat from the orient. Kind of sounds like a robot.

Little Richie is a playa.

Leeroy can not rap.

That lady is always in trouble and Leroy is always there.

I’ve heard worser Mr. Arcadia

Good thing Leroy packed his Ninja outfit.

Also, Leeroy can chase down cars

jive Coolies? Cool Breeze. Leroy can’t get any slack… Everybody hates Leroy

Leeroy Green… Junior

Momma throwing dough at the Martial Arts gang.

This will not be the last time Momma Green is going to have to pull Richie out of the trash can.

Busting up the family shop. That is typical martial arts films.

Leroy doesn’t want to be a body guard.

Dental School dropout. She reminds me of the actress from Little Shop Of Horrors…

Sho Nuff got so much money he can turn down money.

Mr. Nuff.

Wait…he doesn’t have a paintbrush? Then he ain’t gonna be making much love.

Everybody owned a jam box in the 80s

Do we still have “Jack me up” music in movies? Usually, used in training montages. Used here during the Bruce Lee seduction scene.

“Chocolate covered yellow pebble.”

Of course! The Chinese connection. All life’s problems are solved by Bruce Lee plots.

Kung-Fu Head.

Is it really a disguise if you really are the pizza delivery guy?

Medium sized oriental

This should be offensive to Asians and African Americans. But it’s ok right…

Leroy’s battle is against his own stupidity.

THE MASTER IS A COMPUTER!

Sum Dung Goy.

Leroy…you are following Drunken Master.

What you wanna bet the golden glow is like after glow from sex.

That time when your master fucks with you. It is common place for the master.

The old “lock your buddy up or know him out to keep him from putting him in danger.”

Who is operating Arcadias camera on the big screen.

NO GUNS ROCK!

Golaith only has one move…but it’s hard to beat.

Who is that kid. I know that kid.

Richie is going to pop and lock his way out of those ropes.

Who brought the ghost of Mr T to the fight?

Hey Leroy!

The old “next time i will not miss.” Why miss! Just fricken do it moron!

Richie kicked the rock in the nuts so hard that he will never use that again.

Richie done caught a concussion.  We used to think that was funny.

Oh snap. Sho Nuff has the glow. You are so screwed.

This just went from Star Trek to Star Wars.

Sho Nuff…friend to Brisco County

Sho Nuff…just wants to know who’s the master.

He don’t want money…he don’t want fame…he just wants affirmation. Sho Nuff.

Sometimes he takes a drowning to discover who is the master.

Master’s always think shit is funny.

Sho Nuffs powers are on the fritz.

You are the Last Dragon!

Finally! Time to use the gun.

Catching a bullet in your teeth. Quick, to the mythbusters!

What will happen to all the arcades if you chain up Mr Arcadia

The police always show up just in time.

You are the last dragon you posses the power of the glow.

 

Lost In Space (1998) – Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

Danger Scott Johnson. Danger.

Brian doesn’t think he wants to live in a future where robots refer to themselves in the third person and announce every directive, program and subroutine. Robot powering on. Robot defragging. Robot  rebooting.

What if robots today announced what they were doing while they were doing it. “Roomba is cleaning Johnson house. Roomba is sucking a lot of Chili-Cheese Fritos. Roomba does not think this is a normal amount of Chilli-Cheese Frito debris. Please kill Roomba.”

and what’s up with the Robot trash talk.  When Joey attacks Robbie he exclaims. “That was a mistake!”?

Who wrote the re-programming for Robot…Joey Image? “That was a mistake brother…Can you smell what the Robot is cooking?”

Brian powering down. Boop

NOTES

After the countries of the world stop fighting

United Global Space Force

Drinking water and clean air

Hypergate

The Global Sedition

Launch ourselves into the blackness of space.

Did they just have a Jetson noise on that ship?

Transport. 2 blips in your shadow…ooooh…there it is.

Terrorist! Space Terrorist!

Mutant Suicide Squad.  A lot going on here…

Also…A ship made of Gerbels

This bad guy looks like borg. Gen-Techs

Trope – Where is my wingman? I been hit.

Why are they flying bubble gum machines.

“Does this mean we are going steady? You aren’t getting out of buying beers that easy.” That is some bad dialogue

Jupiter Mission

The SGI & Army

Alpha Prime!

Dewey!

Dewey is a bad kid. Hey…this kid ain’t Dewey. I thought that for years. 19 years.

Smart kid causing trouble at school

Penny Vision Digital Diary. Why do we not have this. But man…talk about foreseeing the selfie generation.

Captain Daniels has the flu! The flu…always keeping astronauts from going on space missions.

There is another group headed to Alpha Prime

So that’s a no to family dinner?

“Apology video for Will” – How does that sound? “Super sorry kid.”

“Where is my money!?”

Awkward Le Blanc

Recycling Technology promise is a lie! We are screwed!

They are in a race with Global Sedition. Cold war space race to Alpha Prime. Apparently we are the west still.

The bad guys gave the captain a virus.

Bad Dr. Smith joke ends with a door bell.

Jeb Walker would be perfect…don’t sell Jeb out.

“These tube will be perfect or this ship will not launch.”

Talented older daughter. Brilliant youngest kid. Middle Child..typical teenager.

Tupperware parties in 2050?

I need a space cake. Made with space batter.

Robot is online. Robot is offline. Robot so fine.

Fat head hologram. I hope the future of holograms is Giant Heads.

So their whole plan to kill him was contingent that he would not try to remove the bad Ziggy device from his suit?

Hey! We built a thing…in the top of this building.

Who made those uniforms? They are kind of form fitting…feels a little too close to bat nipples costuming.

Hard to take Le Blanc serious.

I think Le Blanc could have been an action hero. What other action roles could Joey have tackled?

Stasis in movies. Is that how Stasis would really work? What’s the science here?

Up is go…on your command…I am cool man…that is part of the job…sounding like a radio guy.

“and the monkey flips the switch” – Major

I see even in 2050 we like making space junk. Poof…you made a lot more ship than we need.

“Taking the family camper on an interstellar road trip”

The Statis conundrum. Do you all go to sleep? Is 10 years really a reason.

What kind of robot announces it’s program. I mean I love it…but it’s kind of stupid. Executing Program. Empty Trash. Defragging. Shutting Down.

What if all robots announced what they were doing while they were doing it. “Roomba is cleaning room. Roomba is sucking dirt. Roomba is turning.”

Forgot about Oldman and LeBlanc being on friends episode where he is the actor who spits for effect

Robot trash talk. “That was a mistake!” Who wrote the re-programming for Robbie…a wrestler.. “That was a mistake brother…Can you smell what the Robbie is cooking?” Who wrote the robot wrester subroutine?

Us humans typically place robots kill switched in the neck.

DESTROY! DESTROY! (echo “Destroy” goto line 1)

“Robot return to docking back and  power down…also, stop being a dick.”

That is one serious barber chair. In what scenario would you need a chair like that that extends to the ceiling.

Can’t get Judy out. She got a big old booty and it is frozen to her statsis bed.

Penny…Precious…Penny….

Either that uniform sucks or it does not. Can you do CPR over it? if you can…it sucks for protection. If you cannot..then take it off.

For a professor he is kind of dumb…”we are way off course.”

Trope: If you can’t pull away…go through…or slingshot around.

Time floaty freeze…jump!

Anywhere…but here…you got to go!

Plot Twist! Lost….wait for it…in…. Space?

ohh…what’s that? A Battle Scar…. nope…a tattoo…apparently Tattoo removal procedures still suck in the future. Better to do a cover up.

She don’t know how tattoos work. She thinks you can cover them with magic marker.

“Some lucky little nerd you left behind.”

Anomoly in progress! A hole in space…and where does it lead?

“I’ll wait later.” I’ll wait to wait.

Joey shows up… “if this is a dream…why can’t there be more girls.”

United Global Spaceforce…UGS

Penny has the hots for Major West.

“Ta Ta…have a wonderful trip.” – The Doctor.

Will hacked into his cpu to scare his dad. “Hey dad! Remember that time Robot nearly killed us all…Destroy Destroy…ha ha ha…good times.” – Will totally not looking for attention.

Robot jump scare.

Now he is just a droid and no longer a robot. You castrated Robbie’s AI.

I do not like it when Evil is aware that it is Evil. I prefer the oblivious evil. “Oh…I’m the evil one…bummer.”

A future ship piloted by Majors old wingman.

Smith is always messing with robots.

Would love to know all the names that Dr. Smith calls the robot.

Major discovered a space monkey.

What kind of Alien ship has spiders and monkeys

Banana Beef. is that a joke about the custard Rachael made in friends.

I would be concerned if Monkey likes Banana Beef.

“I don’t like the sound of that sound”

Robbie Robot says “Mom says get the hell out of there.”

Controls are too slow…gonna need me some holographic interface.

“ewww…they eat their wounded.” – Will

is there anything worse than Space Spiders?

“A million bucks of weaponry and I would trade it all for a lousy can of Raid.” – Commander

Spider scratch…that ain’t gonna be good.

“Save him! Of course…I’ll put it on a cd-rom! The technology of the future!”

A fast DNA reader….that would be cool.

mmmm…heat…

Major is not good at waiting.

Doctor. Professor. Major. Children. Wife.

As humans…we are always crash landing on habitable planets.

The pod and chariot are scrap metal.

Wife says go for the pissing contest. Has anything ever been solved in a pissing contest…and what are the rules? How do you win?

Technology of the future looks like technology of the past when you  get to the insides.

Let’s name the space monkey Blarp…that sounds like a girls name.

Smith has always been good at causing dissent.

“Sarcasm is the recourse of a feeble mind.” -Major

Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny are future past things. Along with Raid, Tupperware, baseball and bad chicken jokes.

Joey always needs the sex.

Men are from Penis and Women are from the Kitchen

Goodnight montage. Thanks John Boy.

Time for plot 2.

Did Joey just take her water?

Time travel is impossible…nope…improbable.

Son. Stick your Flights Of Fancy.

No Description

“Drama Bot..can not locate motor control.”

“Warm fuzzy feeling when I think about Baseball.”

“Listening to your heart instead of your mind. Put that in your memory banks.”

“Two moons and a crater the size of Miami.” – Major

No…the question is not where are we…but when!

Robbie!

“Why did the robot cross the road? because he was carbon bonded to the chicken.”

I am confused. You use the same “lock” / “unlock” voice commands for gun safety’s and doors? That could cause a problem.

It’s just like stepping between 2 rooms..except you get hit in the face

Billy…Kissing….Billy…Kissing….Popcorn…Kissing.

Middle Aged Will is bitter Will.

I’m both proud and scared of you right now Will.

Dr. Smith is so aware of his evil and monsterness.

Meanwhile on Level Q…we are making a time machine.

Dr. Spider Smith is very Dark Crystal. Love how he moves in that robe. Also, where did he find all that black robe material?

Robot has no heart!

Back off…Robot got this!

So robot can not do first person? He always has to refer to himself in the 3rd person?

Let’s forget the past Will…

Dr. Spider Smith has a back sack of baby spiders.

Will was saved by Grandpa’s dog tags.

We got to go through! It’s the only answer!
