  • Quotes

    • Will: She mentioned a disease that was killing people in her village - called the "miasmas" - which translates from the Greek meaning "poisoned air".
      Helen: Plague, actually.
      Will: The bubonic plague, specifically. However, the last reported serious outbreak was in Scotland - in … 800 AD.
      Helen: Meaning?
      Will: She's crazy.
      Helen: Is that your professional opinion?
      Will: Look, I know there's a lotta things that are outside the realm of our knowledge - blah-blah-blah. But, logically, if she were from 800 AD, she wouldn't speak English the way we do. I'm guessing that linguistics and grammar have evolved somewhat since then.
      Helen: Some would say "devolved".
      Will: Whatever. The point is that we wouldn't understand her - which makes her a very sweet, very … delusional woman.
      Helen: Possibly.
      Will: If you have a theory, please, share it with the class.
      Helen: The liquid we found the three of them in bears similar chemical properties to suspended animation formulae used by southern voodoo cults.
      Will (chuckles sarcastically): Uh, the human body cannot survive, intact, for 1,200 years. I don't care what kinda … "magic bath products" you use.
