    I've been trying to find a verbatim transcript of the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey," but all I could find is the original screenplay/script by Kubrick and Clark. As everyone pretty much knows, the film doesn't follow the screenplay exactly. Does a verbatim transcript of the movie exist anywhere on the web?

    I've never come across one, but I haven't looked for one either. Anyone else?

    Are you trying to say that you don't have the whole movie memorized yet, Jack? [​IMG]

    Oh, I didn't say that. And, I may as well and come out and admit it: I've had every line of dialogue in this film memorized since, oh, 1970 or so. No kidding.

    (I've memorized all the dialogue from another film, too--but I won't get into that.)
