Buddy ‘Aces’ Israel:
You’re looking at me like, like… I just asked you the fucking square root of something.

Maybe one day I’ll wear this to a party I’m actually invited to.
What do you see?
What time is it now?
Clothing Store Clerk:
We missed it.
No, we didn’t. We didn’t miss it because… you don’t know this? I know something about history that you don’t know.
I’d be very excited to learn about it, Riley.
Hold on one second, let me just take in this moment. This is cool. Is this how you feel all the time? Well, except now.
All right! What I know is that daylight savings wasn’t established until World War I. If it’s 3 p.m. now that means that in 1776 it would be 2 p.m.
Riley, you’re a genius.
I’ve decided to write the story down; as it was, not as John made it. Get it right, before I die.
You’re not going to die.
I had a great-uncle who lived to be 102.
Well done. That seals my fate. What are the odds that you would know two men who would live that long?
Well, I didn’t actually know him.
Maybe some day you forget what it’s like to be human and maybe then, it’s ok.
There’s the television. It’s all right there – all right there. Look, listen, kneel, pray. Commercials! We’re not productive anymore. We don’t make things anymore. It’s all automated. What are we *for* then? We’re consumers, Jim. Yeah. Okay, okay. Buy a lot of stuff, you’re a good citizen. But if you don’t buy a lot of stuff, if you don’t, what are you then, I ask you? What? Mentally *ill*. Fact, Jim, fact – if you don’t buy things – toilet paper, new cars, computerized yo-yos, electrically-operated sexual devices, stereo systems with brain-implanted headphones, screwdrivers with miniature built-in radar devices, voice-activated computers…
Where you gonna go?
What’s it like?
You saw a Griever?
Yeah, I saw one.
He didn’t just see it. He killed it.
