      • Narrator: If Man could harness even a small part of the natural nuclear power of the universe, the colonization of distant worlds will someday be possible. But, as science progresses, the unknown factors become more hazardous, and the greatest unknown is often Man himself. This is the story of these men, who sought the source of nuclear power on the moon and the unknowns they face.

      • McCauley: Oh Mrs. Holcomb, aren't you being a little dramatic? They've both been through security tests. On a job like this, we can't take any chances on an incompatibility risk.
        Mandy: Do your machines know more about him then his wife?
        McCauley: I know how wives think. In fact, my wife used to tell me that every time I got a new co-pilot, she'd hear a story--from a very reliable source, mind you--that he was either emotionally unstable, color-blind, or had a wooden leg. She knows better now.

      • Perry: I never stole anything from you, Hal.
        Carter: But you know what I resent the most? Not even that you got Mandy. But that you never had to work for anything. You just reached up into the stars and took it!
        Perry: I never cheated you. You never learned your limitations. You set your sights too high and you missed.
        Carter: Because you were always there trying to top me!
        Perry: I'm not going to talk to you anymore, Hal. But I want you to take a look at yourself. Take a good look. Maybe what you see will make you a better scientist. A better man. That is, if you can overlook what you're doing out here.
