Dick Quote #95

Quote from Dick in Body & Soul & Dick

Dean Sumner: Look who I found. It's Dr. Solomon.
Dr. Hanlin: Well, an honest man in a den of bootlickers, not that I don't enjoy having my boots licked. It's just that I find you all contemptible. So tell me, Dick, what do you think of my work?
Dick: Mechanistic and disturbingly fascist, but pretentious high schoolers might find it thought-provoking.
Professor: I think it's groundbreaking.
Dr. Hanlin: I don't need the opinion of a water boy with tenure. I'm talking to my friend. You know, I like you, Solomon.
Dick: Well, I don't like you.
Dr. Hanlin: [laughs] But I don't think anybody hates me more than your friend, doctor, um...
Mary: Albright.
Dr. Hanlin: Yes. Probably because I turned her down.
Mary: I need something from the bar.
Dr. Hanlin: Yes, that should solve all your problems.
Dick: Well, then let's get drinking.

Quote from Harry

Dick: Why does death have to be so inconvenient?
Harry: [holding an apple] Mmm, to die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream. Oh! [turns apple around to reveal three bite marks that look like the holes of a skull] There's the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil must give us pause.
Dick: What's that from?
Harry: I don't know, some Mel Gibson movie.

Quote from Dick

Mary: I can't believe this. I've never seen anybody die before.
Dick: I know, it's amazing. One minute, he's active, and the next, he's inert. First he's limber, and then he's stiff. His eyes are twinkly, then they're milky. He's rosy, then sallow. Oily, then dry. Gurgly, then silent.
Mary: Oh, will you stop!

Quote from Dick

Dick: If we measure X in grams and Y in centimeters per second, then Z is measured in a unit of energy we call ergs. The complete conversion of one gram of mass into energy thus releases one times three times 10 to the 10th power squared, which brings me to another point-- Your lives are fragile, and you're all going to die!
