“Excuse me, nurse? I’m here with Patient THX 1140, and he seems to have taken leave of his senses.”

“What makes you say that?”

“Hmmm. That IS concerning.”

“Concerning what?”

“It’s concerning, that’s all.”

“Of course not, he’s named THX 1140 — it’s a Lucas homage.”

“Lucas Skywalker?”

“No, that’s someone else entirely.”

“Oh! The horse of a different color you’ve heard tell about?”

“Oh, get that boy under control.”


“Why?! Because control is what it’s all about.”

“No, actually I’m officially old now.”

“What the actual F—”

“Now, now, now!”

“Here and now?”

“Just now. That’s all we have.”

“Got that right.”

“Left right left.”

“How did we get here?”

“Wouldn’t you like to know?”
