Dr. Orva: Your brain will be electronically simplified.
Miles Monroe: My brain? That’s my second favorite organ.

Dr. Orva: Here. You smoke this and be sure you get the smoke deep down into your lungs.

This is, uh…This is, uh…Uh, Charles de Gaulle. He was a very famous French chef. Had his own tv show. Showed you how to make souffle and omelets and everything. This is, uh, Scott Fitzgerald over here. A very romantic writer. Big with English majors, college girls. You know, nymphomaniacs.

Luna Schlosser: I think we should have had sex, but there weren’t enough people.

Miles Monroe: I’m not a puppet. My name is Miles Monroe. I was frozen in 1973, and some doctors thawed me out. Everybody’s after me, but I didn’t do anything! I’m a nice person. I have healthy life drives and good goals! I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I would never force myself sexually on a blind person.
Miles Monroe: I’m a clarinet player in 1973. I go into the hospital for a lousy operation, I wake up 200 years later and I’m Flash Gordon. Plus I’m a criminal. I never did anything wrong in my life. I ran a health food store in Greenwich village. Occasionally, a customer Would get botulism, but that was very rare.
Luna Schlosser: I’m not helping any alien. We don’t want your crazy ideas! So just go back to Greenberg’s village.
Miles Monroe: Nobody touches my brain. They may drop it.

Miles Monroe: Are there any strange animals that I should know about here? Anything weird and futuristic, like with the body of a crab and the head of a social worker?
Miles Monroe: Oh, he was probably a member of the National Rifle Association. There was a group that helped criminals get guns so they could shoot citizens. It was a public service.
Miles Monroe: You went to a university? That’s hard to believe. For what?
Luna Schlosser: Cosmetics, sexual technique, and poetry.
Miles Monroe: No kiddin’? They teach you the sexual techniques in school?
Luna Schlosser: You have to know it in case something goes wrong with the machine.
Miles Monroe: What do you do, switch to manual?
Miles Monroe: Me? From my mother. When I was a kid, I asked her where do babies come from. And she thought I said “rabies”. She said from a dog bite. And a week later a lady on the block gave birth to triplets. I thought she was bitten by a Great Dane.
Miles Monroe: Why? Do you believe in god?

Luna Schlosser: Relax. You’re shaking like a leaf.
Miles Monroe: How do you want me to shake?
Miles Monroe: And I haven’t seen my analyst in 200 years. And he was a strict Freudian. And if I’d been going all this time, I’d probably almost be cured by now.
Luna Schlosser: So then, what do you believe in?
Miles Monroe: Sex and death. Two things that come once in my lifetime, but at least after death you’re not nauseous.
