Fun Stuff

From Forbidden Planet (1956)
Commander John J. Adams: Dr. Morbius, just what were the symptoms of all those other deaths, the unnatural ones I mean.
Dr. Edward Morbius: The symptoms were striking Commander. One by one in spite of every safeguard my co-workers were torn literally limb from limb.
Commander John J. Adams: By what?
Dr. Edward Morbius: By some devilish thing that never once showed itself.
Commander John J. Adams: And the Bellerophon?
Dr. Edward Morbius: Vaporized as the three remaining survivors tried to take her off.
Commander John J. Adams: And yet in all these 19 years you personally have never again been bothered by this planetary force?
Dr. Edward Morbius: Only in nightmares of those times. And yet always in my mind I seem to feel the creature is lurking somewhere close at hand, sly and irresistible and only waiting to be reinvoked for murder.
