Don't forget. Goodnight, Mr Müller.
Don't worry. He'll find us.
Don't you think we're a little close?
Don't you?
Down, Erhart. Down.
Eaten alive.
Elephantitis is when something gets bloated and ugly, like your ass.
Especially about us, Wolfgang.
Even as far as slamming it through a few books or a brick wall.
Even if you had a place to go, you couldn't make it.
Exactly. I'm staying right here.
Exeter, you've used all your power bringing us here.
Far out.

Have a seat. Wolfgang's down in his lab. I'll ring him.
He always breaks things or loses 'em.
He can't catch me any more.
He just isn't very lucky.
He rolled over fine, but I didn't think he deserved a series for that.
He was like my father.
He's about to say something.
He's been playing sick, working on a project. I want to see how it's going.
He's feeling much better now.
He's got it bad.
He's on his way to China!
Hello. Hello. Hello.
Help! Help! Help!
Here he is, the life of outer space himself.
Here she comes.
Here we are.
Here. I waited for you to get here so we could make the official document.
Here's the thing I thought we could use.
Hey, weren't you in there?
Hey. Everything OK?
Hi, guys. Where you been?
Hi, yourself.
How about a planet full of Amazon women who want to breed a new race?
How about the "Thunder Road"? It's from a Bruce Springsteen song.
How come you didn't stop?
How did you dream this?
How much would you expect to pay for this miracle

I can almost read her lips. Get me closer.
I can do it. I mean, it's not that tough.
I can see through there. This was from my dream?
I can't believe this.
I can't see it.
I can't stop thinking about what's up there. What kind of life?
I didn't programme anything like this. Look, it's complete nonsense.
I don't believe this. It's asking for coordinates on X, Y and Z axes.
I don't get it. It's programming itself.
I don't know how it works, but it puts pictures in your head.
I don't know what I saw, Charlie.
I don't know what this is or where it's coming from.
I don't know, but I can't wait to find out.
I don't know, but it's somewhere up there.
I don't know.
I don't know. I can't help it. Can't you understand that?
I don't know. I lost him. This thing came out...
I don't know. It could be something we can't even imagine.
I don't know. What is it you want?
I don't like people calling me stuff when I don't know what it is.
I don't.
I dreamt I was naked at school. I hid in the bathroom. It was terrible.
I finally found out what he likes.
I get it. Your people have been visiting our planet since ancient times.
I got a test tomorrow. Mr Doyle hates me.
I got it working again. Everybody's at the movies. Get over here.
I hate to say this, but this isn't the way I thought it would be at all.
I have got a great idea.
I have to get it running again. I'll call tonight.
I heard they were gonna tear it down anyway. At least, I think I did.
I heard they were gonna tear it down anyway. At least, I think I did.
I just had one of those dreams again.
I just mentioned Wernher von Braun and everything was OK.
I knew we should've put hinges on this thing.
I know I must look weird to you, but how do you think you look to me?
I love this guy. I mean that sincerely.
I made a rough sketch of the terrain in graphics mode for referencing.
I mean, look at 'em.
I mean, they must've been preparing for this for thousands of years.
I must have something...
I never tire of looking at the stars, do you?
I put these sentences into his voice synthesizer.
I said you had elephantitis.
I saw a cat in your tree, so I thought I'd get it down.
I saw that dream we had and a bunch of other weird stuff.
I swallowed my gum.
I swiped some beer, so we can name it something.
