Dr. Chandra: This is initial voice-logic reconstruction test number one. Diagnostics on voice recognition and speech synthesis centers has been completed. At this level all functions appear normal.
Dr. Chandra: (while typing) Hello. Doctor. Name. Continue. Yesterday. Tomorrow.
HAL 9000: (mechanically primitive voice synthesis) HE-EL-LO-O. DO-OC-TE-ER. NA-AI-ME. CO-ON-TI-IN-NU-UE-YE-ES TU-UR-DA-AY, TO-O-O-MO-OR-RR-O-OW. (Chandra inserts two more modules and hits a key to repeat the voice test)
HAL 9000: (sepulchrally) Hello. Doctor. Name, continue, yesterday. Tomorrow? (Chandra inserts two more modules and repeats the voice test)
HAL 9000: (almost normal) Hello? Doctor? Name? Continue? Yesterday? Tomorrow? (Chandra inserts two more modules)
HAL 9000: (mechanically and rapidly, rising in pitch and speed) Hellodoctornamecontinueyesterdaytomorrow hellodoctornamecontinueyesterdaytomorrow hellodoctornamecontinueyesterdaytomorrow hellodoctornamecontinueyesterdaytomorrow hellodoctornamecontinueyesterdaytomorrow hellrotinyettyelrotinyettyelrotinyettyelrotinyettyelrotinyetelrotinyet... (Chandra clears the voice test, inserts the last four modules, and hits a key)
HAL 9000: (perfectly normal) Good morning, Dr. Chandra. This is HAL. I'm ready for my first lesson. (Chandra turns and paternally pats HAL's "eye")

HAL 9000: I understand now, Dr. Chandra. Thank you for telling me the truth.
Dr. Chandra: You deserve it.

Dr. Vasili Orlov: What was that all about?
Chandra: I've erased all of HAL's memory from the moment the trouble started.
Dr. Vasili Orlov: The 9000 series uses holographic memory so chronological erasures would not work.
Chandra: I made a tapeworm.
Walter Curnow: You made a what?
Chandra: It's a program that's fed into a system that will hunt down and destroy any desired memories.

HAL-9000: What is going to happen?
Dave: Something wonderful.
HAL-9000: I'm afraid.
Dave: Don't be. We'll be together.
HAL-9000: Where will we be?
Dave: Where I am now.

Heywood Floyd: (referencing Discovery's schematic diagrams) Are these the power connections for all the control-based circuits?
Walter Curnow: Most of them, yeah.
Heywood Floyd: What other ones are there?
Walter Curnow: Well, all the environmental controls are fed with this one here...
Heywood Floyd: Yeah yeah yeah, but this is the one that feeds into HAL, right?
Walter Curnow: Right.
Heywood Floyd: Okay... I want you to install this little beauty... right about... there. Just inside the cable trunking. (hands a small device to Curnow)
Heywood Floyd: I want you to put it where no one can find it without a deliberate search.
Walter Curnow: No sh**?
Heywood Floyd: No sh**.
Walter Curnow: This is pretty sweet... Non-conducting blade, so there won't be any short-circuits when you trigger it... Where's the remote control?
Heywood Floyd: If I trigger it. The control's in my compartment. Little red calculator? You've seen it. You put in nine '9s'. Take the square root, and then hit 'Integer.' In an emergency, even you could do it.
Walter Curnow: What kind of emergency?
Heywood Floyd: Well if I knew that, I wouldn't need this stupid thing now, would I? (holds up the device)
Walter Curnow: Y'know, Chandra'd have kittens if he found out.
Heywood Floyd: Yeah. But he isn't gonna find out, is he.
Walter Curnow: Not from me. They could tear off my fingernails, I won't talk.
Heywood Floyd: Good. Install it tonight when he's asleep. If he ever does sleep.
Walter Curnow: How can you tell?

Dr. Heywood Floyd: Dear Caroline: I miss you terribly. The time has come to put ourselves in an orbit around Io, which is where Discovery is. We don't have enough fuel to slow ourselves down, so we are about to use a technique called aerobraking. The theory is, we will enter the outer layer of Jupiter's atmosphere using what is called a "ballute" for a shield. The atmosphere will slow us down, and Jupiter's gravity will grab hold of us and slingshot us around behind the dark side. If all goes well, we'll wind up in a gentle orbit around Io. It's dynamite on paper. Of course the people who came up with the numbers on the paper aren't here. Since no one has ever done this before, everyone up here is as scared as I am. The difference is, they're busy. I have nothing to do but wait for it to happen. I hope this is all worth it.

Dr. Heywood Floyd: You can tell your children of the day when everyone looked up and realized that they were only tenants of this world. We have been given a new lease and a warning from the landlord.
