[about his wife, Bess]
That's me, Doctor! How is she?
She's fine, considering her age. And the fact that she's six weeks pregnant.
[Chuckles, and to Art says]

I had hesitated on watching this sequel because it good bad reviews, but I really enjoyed it. They had to come back for the cocoons, right? What makes this movie worthwhile is that all of the Seniors struggle with whether they want to leave Earth again. Immortality isn't all it's cracked up to be.
