When the pod falls into the stomach, Mr. Igoe is right on top of it, drilling into the air tanks. However, when the pod hits bottom and you see a closeup of it, Igoe is nowhere to be seen. See more »
What exactly are we doing here?
We're waiting for someone.
oh, who are we we waiting for?
The Cowboy. I've been tracking his movements for months and he got to the airport about an hour ago and he always stays here.

I have a feeling he's gonna lead us right to that chip we need.
Why do you think that?

Why INNERSPACE was not the hit it should have been will remain a mystery for years to come. And old concept (FANTASTIC VOYAGE) is given an update with spectacular (for the time, but still good) special effects and an excellent cast. Martin Short is a real delight as a neurotic supermarket clerk who at first thinks he's possessed, only to discover that the only thing in his body is a miniaturized Navy test pilot, Dennis Quaid, who was accidently injected into him instead of a lab rabbit. Meg Ryan is cute as ever, and Robert Picardo co-stars in one of his best roles, The Cowboy. The late screenwriter Jeffrey Boam keeps the story simple but allows for some good suspense and laughs, and director Joe Dante keeps the pacing just right. The battle between Quaid and an enemy inside Short's stomach is the highlight of the film. I remember how much I wanted to be Quaid's Tuck Pendleton (and have his little pod) when I first saw the movie. The ending seems obvious for a sequel, but due to the film's surprising box office failure, it was not to be. Still, this is a really fun movie for the whole family, and I hope a Special Edition DVD is not far away.
