  • The sci-fi herein is outstanding because it's grounded in a high degree of psychological realism that lays an effective foundation for the fantastic elements.

These are a lot healthier--sunflower seeds. Dr. James Hamilton : Yeah, as the old woman said as she kissed the cow, "each to our own taste."

    • Dr. James Hamilton: (Defending himself before two soldiers) I was born in Billings, Montana, I went to the University of Chicago, and I'm going to destroy everyone on this base.

    • Major Roger Brothers: (Speaking to Dr. James Hamilton) We live in a world of cowards, Dr. Hamilton. Every man is afraid of his brother, and most men try to hide from that awful fact. Even here, the men are afraid to see the evil that is here on this base. And they are responsible for it.
