- You're not here.
- We're not there. The car exploded.
Come get the girls. I have to stay here with Woodrow.
- I'm not their chauffeur. I'm their grandfather. Where are you?

- Holy Toledo, that's Mitch Campbell.
- You were very good in the one about the tramp in the brothel who gets amnesia and--
- Thank you.
- becomes a pediatrician. You were very authentic.
- That's actually maybe my favorite character I've ever played.
- I don't know why nobody else liked it.
- What do those pulses indicate?
- What? Oh, the beeps and blips? We don't know.
- Some of our information about outer space may no longer be completely accurate. Anyway, there are still only nine planets in the solar system as far as we know. Billy?
- Except now there's an alien.
- What's happening now?
- I don't know.
- I don't like the way that guy looked at us, the alien.
- How did he-- how'd he look?
- Like we're doomed.
- Maybe we are.
- I've just informed the president.
- How long can they keep us in Asteroid City legally?
- The world will never be the same.
- That's an alien doing jumping jacks. That's an alien in a top hat.
- What's out there?

- Are you married?
- I'm a widower. But don't tell my kids.
- Are you saying our mother died three weeks ago?
- Let's say she's in heaven, which doesn't exist for me, of course, but you're Episcopalian.
- In my loneliness, I learned to give complete and unquestioning faith to the people I love. I don't know if that includes you, but it included my daughter and your four children.
- Sometimes I think I feel more at home outside the Earth's atmosphere.
- Oh, wow. Me too.
- They're strange, aren't they? They're children. Compared to normal people.
- Yes, that's correct.
- It's true.
- (SINGING) Freight train, freight train, going so fast. Freight train, freight train, going so fast. I don't know why--
- I'll do a nude scene. You want to see it?
- Huh? Did I say yes?
- You didn't say anything.
- I meant yes. My mouth didn't speak.
