from Superman (1978)
First Elder: [following the trial and sentencing of General Zod and Company] An unpleasant duty has been masterly performed, Jor-El. They have received the fate they deserve: isolation in the Phantom Zone, an eternal living death.
Jor-El: A chance for survival, nonetheless... as opposed to ourselves, if we continue to ignore these facts. It's suicide! No, it's worse. It's GENOCIDE!
First Elder: Be warned, Jor-El. The Council has already evaluated this outlandish theory of yours.
Jor-El: My friends, you know me to be neither rash nor impulsive. I'm not given to wild, unsupported statements. And I tell you that we must evacuate this planet immediately!
First Elder: Jor-El, you are one of Krypton's greatest scientists.
2nd Elder: Yes, but so is Vond-Ah.
Vond-Ah: It isn't that we question your data. The facts you speak of are undeniable. It's only your conclusions which we find unsupportable.
Jor-El: This planet, and its red sun with it, will destabilize and burst within 30 days... very likely, within seven.
Vond-Ah: I tell you, Krypton is merely shifting its orbit.
2nd Elder: Jor-El, be REASONABLE.
