Quotes: Olderis Better
Rattrap: This thing wasn't built. It was poured!
Optimus Primal: Die Cast Construction. It's a lost art.

Mike: I'm not seeing it here. It's not in the index!
Bruce: But this machine's supposed to be BETTER than a video store! That's why everyone abandoned the store for it, right?
Mike: It doesn't carry anything older than six months, and of those, only the major titles.
Fiera: Netflix might have it! They have a wider selection!
Mike: Yes, but it takes time for them to send what you order, and we already promised our client we'd get this movie to him by tomorrow!
Fiera: Couldn't we stream it from them?
Mike: Not practical for our meeting location. We need to hand them a physical copy!
Bruce: WELL, THEN HOW DO WE GET IT?
Mike: I'm not sure. If the rental store was still an option, this would have been easy!
Bruce: HOW-HOW CAN THIS BE? TECHNOLOGY ONLY MAKES THINGS BETTER! IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO MAKE THEM WORSE! THE WORLD'S NOT MAKING SENSE!

Old fashioned... when you hear “old fashioned,” you’re supposed to think “oh, this goes back to the old days...” Right. The old days. Before we had sanitation laws. Before hygiene became popular. Back when botulism was still considered a sauce.
