The Fly is a 1986 American science fiction horror film directed and co-written by David Cronenberg. Produced by Brooksfilms and distributed by 20th Century Fox, the film stars Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis and John Getz. Loosely based on George Langelaan's 1957 short story of the same name, the film tells of an eccentric inventor and scientist who, after one of his experiments goes wrong, slowly turns into a fly-hybrid creature. The score was composed by Howard Shore and the make-up effects were created by Chris Walas, along with makeup artist Stephan Dupuis. Wikipedia

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.
Ronnie: Why?
Seth Brundle: (sigh) It can't cope with the flesh. It only seems to work on inanimate objects; nothing that's living.
Ronnie: Why?
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.
(Long pause)
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)
