(CW) "As popular as 'Back To The Future' has been, we better get used to it!" (BG) "Are we always gonna have those snide comments about what's failed to show up when it's supposed to?" (CW, activating her time machine) "Well, let's find out, shall we?"

Shouldn't we have the Starship Enterprise by now?" (Future Guy 2, wearing a "Garthritis" t-shirt) "Yeah, I want my Vulcans! What the glurtz, people?"
