Carla Peterson: [about Barney] I don't know. In the next world, he's probably gonna be some laser beam with overhead cams or something.
Col. Steve Austin: Why are you doing it? Why make another Bionic time bomb?
Oscar Goldman: This is an entirely different situation, Steve. It's a controlled experiment.
Col. Steve Austin: Oscar, you can't control him not if he doesn't want to be controlled.
Barney Hiller: Hey, come on, now Steve, don't rush me. I've only got 48 hours to play superman again, I wanna enjoy every minute.
Barney Hiller: Look, Mr. Burstyn, if everything else in my life goes down the tubes... you'd still be wasting your time.
Lester Burstyn: My dear friend...
Barney Hiller: I'm not your dear friend. You're lucky I didn't report you to Oscar Goldman the first time you called me.
Lester Burstyn: Yes, I suppose I am. The fact is you didn't tell Goldman. And another fact is: at this moment you're bionically activated and will be for 48 hours...
Col. Steve Austin: Oscar, don't you realize that a bionic man turned criminal how much he could steal? He could burrow into Fort Knox.
Oscar Goldman: I don't want to think about it.
Lester Burstyn: You show amazing strength, Colonel Austin. Anyone who can hold his own with a bionic man...
Col. Steve Austin: Well I keep in shape.
Barney Hiller: Look Burstyn, what am I going to have to do to get you to release Carla?
Lester Burstyn: I'll think of something, Barney.
