After Harry went in the sphere Barnes turned round and accused Norman of screwing up their trip to the surface in other words saying it was Norman's fault that they were not going up to the surface when Norman had nothing to do with it was Harry's fault due to Harry going to the spacecraft when they supposed to be up to the surface.

Can I ask you something about this reflective surface?
Yeah, it appears to be mercury, doesn't it? Except mercury is liquid at this temperature.
Oh, no. That's not what I'm talking about. What worries me is that it's reflecting everything but us.

Best movie I have seen in a long time. I first saw `Sphere' on the big screen when it first came out and I have rented it a few times and then went out and bought it on VHS. A little bit of the story for you-Dustin Hoffman plays the part of a psychologist and thinks he is going to counsel the survivors of a plane wreck in the ocean. There is more to the situation than Hoffman knows. At the supposed crash sight Hoffman teams up with Sharon Stone and Samuel Jackson as part of a top team of scientists assembled in high-priority situations. While under water the team finds the unexpected and their worst fears become reality. This movie is perfectly intriguing and very well written. The twists and turns in the movie fit together like puzzle pieces that paint the best psychological thriller that I have seen. Hoffman is of course at his best and Stone and Jackson are right there beside him the whole way.
