Quotes: No Budget
Yeah, we gonna turn Hollywood out! (NO BUDGET!)"
No Budget, from the Cecil B. Demented soundtrack.

There is no shop in London Town
Except two flats that are painted brown
But think of all the cash they've saved
The physical budget's impeccably shaved

"So Kirk, Spock, and McCoy get taken to the ship's brig, which is just a room where they're preventing from escape by powerful fluorescent light bulbs. Ok, now don't get me wrong, I love practical effects; but really? Are we supposed to believe that those're some kinda laser bars or somethin'? Fucking really? You couldn't do some kind of effect here? Jesus Christ, where did all the money in the budget go to, catering for James Doohan? Toupees for William Shatner? Like, Next Gen just has a glowing blue light, totally transparent cell door—but just a simple electrostatic zap-type effect that indicated that there was an invisible force field there. That's all you need. Then you don't gotta stare at this fuckin' terrible set, and you can shoot at your actors inside the cell door without having the fuckin' florescent light bulbs there."
