->Now, if you or I [[{{Film/Terminator}} saw a naked man drop through a hole in reality and walk through 50 bullets to put his fist through our stomach]], we'd die knowing that we've made a robot from the future very happy. A guy in a movie, though, he has no idea what happened. He'll use his dying words to argue how robots don't exist, and even if they did, [[InsaneTrollLogic they wouldn't be able to smile!]]

->"I'm lost," Lars spat into the flames. "What in hell are you talking about? Spaceships? [[MadScientist Sons ]] of [[MagiTek Ether]]? [[EternalEngine Mechanical worlds]]?"
