Charlie Isaacs and Frank Winter have words -- Charlie says to Frank "You're afraid I'm the meteor that will make you go extinct" and Frank replies "What is it with little boys and dinosaurs?".
Charlie's hereby labels Frank an dinosaur, and alludes to the popular theory that the extinction of dinosaurs was caused by a the impact of a large meteor 65 million years ago, while Frank's reply is meant to indicate that he understands and mocks that allusion.
The problem is that the above mentioned theory, now commonly referred to as the "Alvarez Hypothesis", was first published in the Journal "Science" in 1980, and was only one of many competing theories at the time. It didn't become commonplace until much later, and was certainly not known in the early 1940s when the above dialogue is set. See more
