Ronnie: (after an unsuccessful test of the telepods) We've gotta do this, Seth. Talk to the tape. Get in the habbit. The world will want to know what you're thinking.
Seth Brundle: Fuck! is what I'm thinking.
Ronnie: Good... The world will want to know that... What else? Why didn't it work.
Seth Brundle: (Disappointingly) I think it turned the baboon inside-out.
Seth Brundle: (sigh) It can't cope with the flesh. It only seems to work on inanimate objects; nothing that's living.
Seth Brundle: (pause) Computers are dumb. They only know what you tell them... I must not know enough about the flesh myself. I'm gonna have to learn.
Seth Brundle: I don't wanna talk now.
(Ronnie turns off the camera and watches Seth sympathetically as he walks away with his head held low in disappointment)
