Mr. Elfdope!  
Or, anybody else with access to Schizopolis -

Would you please tell me the quote from the deleted scenes about the Bernoulli Effect? It's been buggin me all day . . .

That would be the so called Bernoulli Effect
"Well let's face it. It never made much sense that objects that heavy could become lighter than air. As with many preexisting phenomena we sort of worked backward to find scientific justification. Now the so-called Bernoulli Effect postulates that air currents sent into rotation under the wing's surface create a vaccuum which provides lift. Now if that sounds like a load of crap. Well thats because it is. But we needed an explanation. We all feared that one day it would cease to function and common sense would prevail. And today, of course thats exactly what has happened. Flight no longer works.
I should also point out that I have grave doubts about electricity."

Let me rephrase -
"Ladies and Gentlemen, young and old. This may seem an unusual procedure, speaking to you before the picture begins, but we have an unusual subject. Turn. When I say that this is the most important motion picture you will ever attend, my motivation is not financial gain, but a firm belief that the delicate fabric that holds all of us together will be ripped apart unless every man, woman and child in this country sees this film and pays full ticket price not some bargain matinee cut-rate deal. Turn. In the event that you find certain sequences or ideas confusing; please bear in mind that this is your fault not ours. You will need to see the picture again and again until you understand everything. Turn. In closing, I want to assure you that no expense was incurred bringing this motion picture to your theater. And now, filmed in its entirety, and proven to heal minor cuts and abrasions, we proudly present... Schizopolis!"

Wow. I always wondered why I thought that Steven Soderburg reminded me of Stephen Burt (and not just in looks). Now I don't wonder why I think this, but rather, sit in a calm state of understanding, knowing that it's alllllll true.

Wow. Phil, I can't believe you put that asterisk in there. I mean, you know who you're talking to? Wow again. ::wink::

I seem to be saying "wow" too much lately. Will replace with something ridiculous like "zowie" instead.

Much like me, he has filters on the Internet at work. Sometimes it helps.
elfdope on January 8th, 2004 12:44 pm (UTC)
I really don't know if I have filters, but I know that I might. I also know that others have them.

I hate the thought police.
