  • Quotes

    • Dr. Smith: I might have known it. You have as much Indian tracking blood in your circuits as I have.

    • Penny: You can't just stay down here until you die!
      Mr. Nobody: What is "die"?
      Penny: Well, I--I do think I'm not exactly sure myself. But when someone can't speak anymore, or when someone can't move anymore.

    • Penny: Mother, do you think just a place could think and talk? Well like here, maybe.
      Maureen: Well, maybe.
      Penny: I asked Daddy if it's only people that could have brains and he said only very few of them do.

    • Mr. Nobody: (Penny has just fallen over and been knocked out by the blasting) Penny? Penny! When a person can't talk anymore... when a person can't move anymore... Penny. Please move. Penny, please don't die.

    • Dr. Smith: It could be that I was mistaken about the possibilities of our finding clay in this area.
      Don: Dr. Smith, you've finally said something sensible. But tell me something. Why is it whenever you come near anything, the roof caves in?
      Dr. Smith: We all have our good and bad luck, sir. But this time, I was wrong. I concede it.

    • Dr. Smith: When I think of the value of these rocks back on Earth. Oh, the pain... the pain.
