• “- Grandpa Fred: Creature what is it that you want?
    - Brain Gremlin: Fred, what we want is, I think, what everyone wants, and what you and your viewers have: civilization.
    - Grandpa Fred: Yes, but what sort of civilization are you speaking of?
    - Brain Gremlin: The niceties, Fred. The fine points: diplomacy, compassion, standards, manners, tradition... that's what we're reaching toward. Oh, we may stumble along the way, but civilization, yes. The Geneva Convention, chamber music, Susan Sontag. Everything your society has worked so hard to accomplish over the centuries, that's what we aspire to; we want to be civilized.”

    Robert Prosky - Grandpa Fred
    Tony Randall - Brain Gremlin
