Barnes: Ask him for his last name.

Harry: What?

Barnes: I want a full name for my report. I'm not putting in my report that I lost a crew member on a deep-sat expedition to find an alien named "Jerry."

Norman Goodman: I would be happy if Jerry had no emotions whatsoever. Because the thing of it is once you go down that road... here's Jerry, an emotional being cooped up for 300 years with no one to talk to... none of the socialization, the emotional growth that comes from contact with other emotional beings...

Harry: So...?

Norman Goodman: What happens if Jerry gets mad?

Barnes: Oh, you are a hell of a woman. I wish I knew you in the old days. Norman told me you were...

Beth: [defensive] Norman told you what?

Barnes: Let's put it this way - that if Jerry could read your mind, he'd be bored with ours!

Beth: Are you telling me that by Harry going into the Sphere, he now has the power to manifest his dreams, his fantasies.

Norman Goodman: MANIFEST! MANIFEST! He made it happen. It's not that different from a child. A child imagines something that believes its real and its not there, but with Harry, He not only makes it real from himself, he makes real for all of us.

[the group is breathing helium]

Dr. Ted Fielding: [high pitched voice] Oxygen is a corrosive gas, in the same family as fluorine and chlorine - hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid. That's why we're breathing helium down here, because oxygen at any level higher than 2.3 becomes toxic.

Norman Goodman: [high pitched voice] Can you run that by me again, Ted? I don't speak balloon.

Norman Goodman: What is it, Harry?

Dr. Harry Adams: Take a look. It's chipped!

Captain Harold C. Barnes: Alright, it's chipped - so what?

Dr. Harry Adams: Well I thought you said this thing wouldn't damage when it crashed and that this titanium alloy was so superstrong there's no way you can hurt it.

Captain Harold C. Barnes: I did.

Dr. Harry Adams: So how come it chips when this scientist just bangs on it with a hammer?

Norman Goodman: What the hell is it?

Captain Harold C. Barnes: Whatever it is - it seems to be what this bird was designed to do. Go out in the space and gather things like this up and bring it back.

Norman Goodman: Yeah, but back from where?

Dr. Harry Adams: Don't get too excited, Ted - turn this thing over and it'll probably say 'Made in Korea'

Dr. Harry Adams: We're all gonna die down here.

Norman Goodman: What?

Dr. Harry Adams: You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.

Norman Goodman: Can I ask you something about this reflective surface?

Barnes: Yeah, it appears to be mercury, doesn't it? Except mercury is liquid at this temperature.

Norman Goodman: Oh, no. That's not what I'm talking about. What worries me is that it's reflecting everything but us.
