: Yeah, that's the time. Al Giordino
: [pauses, confused

: Your point? Al Giordino
: Well, we're in the desert, looking for the source of a river pollutant, using as our map a cave drawing of a Civil War gunship, which is also in the desert. So I was just wondering when we're gonna have to sit down and re-evaluate our decision-making paradigm? Dirk Pitt

: You don't look like a scientist. Dr. Gene Seagram
