Langley: The rules haven't changed much since Einstein. Ultimately Whether it's wormholes or warp drives, time travel requires you to go 186,000 miles per second.
Dan: The speed of light.
Langley: That's the rub because, so far, nothing has demonstrated an ability to do that.
Dan: What about tachyons?
Langley: Theoretical particles never proven to exist.
Dan: So, time travel's impossible.
Langley: No, just not proven. Five hundred years ago, we knew Pluto didn't exist. Five years ago, we knew it was a planet. Now, we know it's not. Did Pluto change? No. Did our understanding of Pluto? Yes.
Dan: Imagine. Uncovering the identity of Dylan McCleen.
Katie: Sounds like you're enjoying yourself.
Dan: It has its adrenaline moments, that's all.
Katie: And the Livia part?
Katie: You're an adrenaline guy, Dan. You liked the action when you were gambling. Maybe you want two women in different time zones.
Katie: No, I mean, you know, technically, it wouldn't be cheating if it's in the past. I was sleeping with Jack, maybe you should sleep with Livia back there.
Dan: So, if I'm with Livia back there, you can start sleeping with Jack here? What, not funny?
McCleen: Do you know where we are?
Dan: I don't know when we are.
Katie: (describing Jack's ideal woman) Someone who will order in Chinese with you and watch South Park? Jack: Oh, please. I'll die alone if I wait for perfection.
