Episode Quotes
Mark: Why, you know, I--I think that some day this street right here is gonna have buildings that stick up right to the sky. And we'll have machines that take the place of horses... like the train took the place of the covered wagon.
Lucas: Machines to take the place of horses?
Mark: Well? (Lucas nods in disapproval) I guess not.
