  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (7)

    • Astrid: How about we go for a walk. You know you haven't eaten in hours. The cafeteria's just downstairs. I think I saw tapioca pudding on the menu. Walter: I can't deny I'm hungry.

    • Walter: A long time since I've seen the classic fruit cocktail. Why do you suppose that is? Astrid: I suppose loading fruit with sugar, artificial flavors, and dyes has fallen out of flavor. Walter: That's a shame, isn't it?

    • Walter: Forgive me if I'd like to spend my remaining time with my son. Astrid: Well, what about Olivia? You saw how hard it was for her to leave him, but she's out there trying to find a way to end this. Walter: I too have tried. I went so far as to ask God for help. How did he respond? Nothing. Astrid: That's your excuse? Come on now. What have you done, Walter? God helps those who help themselves.

    • Sam Weiss: I'm not the first Sam Weiss. Olivia: So which Sam Weiss is this? Sam Weiss: My great-great-great-great grandfather. He was digging for mastodon bones and he discovered an ancient manuscript instead. Olivia: So he was the one who wrote the First People book? Sam Weiss: No, that was the fifth Sam Weiss. The third and fourth Sams spent their lives searching for the manuscript's missing sections. Olivia: You're a dedicated bunch. Sam Weiss: A machine with the power to create and destroy worlds shouldn't be taken lightly.

    • Walter: That's it. Come and get me! Strike me down, you sprites, you elves, you glorious blue jets!
