Now, uh... he didn't say how long.
Days, or weeks... they don't, they don't know.
I'm so sorry, Lace. I know how you hate surprises.
I tried so hard not to love you.
How'd you make out?
Terrible. (they chuckle)
Hey, would you, uh, love me the rest of my life?
No. I'm gonna love you for the rest of mine.
(after hearing several of the townsfolk openly disparage George in the Bar) Why do ya have to tear him down? What are ya so afraid of? What have you got to lose? He wasn't selling anything! He didn't want anything from anybody! He wanted nothing from nobody! Nothing! And you people have to tear him down so you can sleep better tonight! So ya can prove that the world is flat and ya can sleep better tonite! Am I right? Am I right?... I'm right... The Hell with all of ya. The Hell with everyone of ya. (storms out of the Bar)
(speaking about George's transformation) He never really changed at all. Isn't that right Doc? I mean he never really got any smarter. Doc?
Banes... how's your lady love?
We... um... we broke up.
Really? That's too bad, yeah. Now George has a love at his side and she is sticking with him. You know why? Because he bought her chairs. That's pretty smart to me. You ever buy Lisa's chairs?'
Doc's real drunk tonight.
George, how did you manage to get your pressure to come down?
Oh... I found my pace. Simple thing really. Hard to explain.
What else do you know, George?
Well, I know you're on the outs with Lisa again.
(dumbfounded) How'd you know that?
Well, when she's living with you, she makes sure your clothes match.
All right, I'll start the questions, and I'll be timing your responses, and we'll be recording. Any questions?
What's your first name?
Uh, my first name is Bob. (George reaches across the wide table to shake hands)
Right. Name as many mammals as you can in 60 seconds. Ready? Go. (Starts stopwatch)
Hmm. 60 seconds. Well, how would you like that? How about alphabetical? Aardvark, baboon, caribou, dolphin, eohippus, fox, gorilla, hyena, ibex, jackal, kangaroo, lion, marmoset, Newfoundland, ocelot, panda, rat, sloth, tiger, unicorn, varmint, whale, yak, zebra. Now "varmint" is a stretch; so is "Newfoundland" (that's a dog breed); "unicorn" is mythical; "eohippus" is prehistoric. But you weren't being very specific, now, were you, Bob?
(pauses, then stops watch and laughs) Well! Ahh, I'll, uh - I'll try to be more specific. You ready for the next one?
Answer as quickly as you can... how old is a person born in 1928? (starts stopwatch)
Man or a woman?
(stops stopwatch and pauses) Why?
Okay, one more time. How old is a MAN born in 1928? (starts stopwatch)
(stops watch, pauses, nods) If a man is born in 1928, and he's still alive, how old is he? (starts stopwatch)
(stops stopwatch) If a man was born October 3rd, 1928, and he's still alive, how old is he? (starts stopwatch)
(stops stopwatch) 10 o'clock... PM! (starts stopwatch)
(stops stopwatch; now impatient) Anywhere!
Well, let's get specific, Bob! I mean, if the guy's still alive, born in California, October 3rd, 1928, 10 PM, he's 67 years, 9 months, 22 days, 14 hours, and... (takes Bob's hand to see his wristwatch)
... and 12 minutes. If he was born in New York, he's 3 hours older, now isn't he?
Let's see, uh... George... George... there's a tumor in your brain, that's spread out like a hand, threads of it, you know, everywhere. But instead of dysfunction - now here's the mystery, George. Instead of destroying brain function, so far it's been stimulating it. We can't understand that. You have more area of active brain use than anybody ever tested - ever - because of those tentacles. I mean, we've seen tumors like this before, it's called astrocytoma. And it explains, uh, the dizziness, and... the illusion of light. But the way it's in there, waking up areas of the brain, it's a... big mystery. So...
And it's killing me.
