The Crawling Eye (1958)
First Student Climber: You idiot! We nearly had him. Why did you let him go?
Second Student Climber: Didn't you see?
First Student Climber: What are you talking about?
Second Student Climber: His head! It was torn off!
Prof. Crevett: And then dere is da cloud.
Alan Brooks: What cloud?
Prof. Crevett: Come on, Alan, you know what I'm talking about. Da cloud where there should be no cloud.
Alan Brooks: Where there are mountains, there are always clouds.
Prof. Crevett: But dis one remains static. On da side of da Trollenberg it never moves.
Alan Brooks: A freak of nature.
Prof. Crevett: A *radioactive* freak of nature?
Prof. Crevett: D'you see? Television cameras on da roof. We watch *everywhere*. You know, da government - da government, they say to me, "Professor, do you have to have such *expensive* things? Windows are much cheaper!" And I say I have to have, and I *have*! Dat over there, dat is the *only* window. And even for *dat*, we have *protection*. Look.
[activates electric window cover]
Prof. Crevett: Dat will stand up to *any* avalanche. Uh, dat too was very expensive. All this to study cosmic rays, huh?
[in the observatory room, looking out the panorama window]
Prof. Crevett: [spoken with German accent] Well, Alan. For the first time in weeks, the Trollenberg is free from clouds.
Alan Brooks: Yes - and let's hope it stays that way.
Sarah Pilgrim: *Was* there an accident, Mister Klein?
Mayor Klein: O-On a mountain, uh, dese things sometimes happen.
Philip Truscott: Keep an eye on your roping, won't you.
Brett: Why roping, particularly?
Philip Truscott: Uh, student business last week.
Dewhurst: That's right. Nasty business. Very nasty.
Jim: Hey! Wait a minute. There's someome coming.
Second Student Climber: [sarcastically] Who is it, Jim, the Abominable Snowman?
Jim: I tell you there's someone coming. I can't see a thing. Who is it? Who is it? Who - ? No! Ugh-egh. No...!
[Jim falls over the cliff edge]
Prof. Crevett: Da cloud has moved. It is at da foot of da South Col. Where da hut is.
Philip Truscott: Cute little things, aren't they?
Alan Brooks: Yeah. I'm gonna throw a bomb at that one. You watch on the screen, see what happens.
Alan Brooks: Looks like you're goin' for a climb.
Dewhurst: Yes, we're going up the Trollenberg. Gonna have a noggin before we start. Care to join us?
Alan Brooks: All right.
Dewhurst: What's it goin' to be?
Alan Brooks: Scotch, please.
Dewhurst: Scotch and the two brandies. Better give me a bottle of brandy to take with us. Keep the cold out tonight.
