Professor Hood: You really want to ingest the byproducts of petroleum production?
(Rachel ingests the chewing gum.)
Ned: What's gonna happen to us?
Professor Hood: Quarantine of course.
Ned: Quarantine, what are you talking about?
Professor Hood: Treatment is voluntary. The quarantine is voluntary. And nobody is going anywhere until you bloody well volunteer!
Professor Hood: (Talks about the gifted RoboSapien toy.) While I was eleven I played with clockwork toys. That toy was designed by a master scientist. It got seven miniature electric motors, it dances, it got sensors on it's hands and feet, it belches, it snores. It even farts.
Rachel: (she laughs) You know what Hood? That was a really generous thing to do.
Professor Hood: No it wasn't. I bought one for myself.
