This one keeps being brought up...and I'm one of the many who would snap it up in a heartbeat if it ever appeared. Keeping my fingers crossed...
quote: "What is this?"
"This? This is ice. This is what happens to water when it gets too cold. See this? This is Kent. This is what happens to people when they get sexually frustrated.... Did I ever tell you about the time I caught him naked with a bowl of Jello?"
"What?"
"Did not!"
"True story."
"It was hot - I was hungry."
"Bodie, I noticed you've stopped stuttering."
"I've been giving myself electroshock treatments."
"Up the voltage."
"If there's ever anything I can do for you - or, more to the point, to you - let me know."
"Can you hammer a six inch spike through a board with your penis?"
"Not right now."
"A girl's gotta have her standards."
"All my filth is in alphabetical order. This, for instance, is under 'H', for 'toy.'"
"I want to see more of you around the lab."
"Fine. I'll gain weight."
"Why do you wear that thing on your head?"
"Because if I wear it anywhere else, it chafes."
"Was it a dream where you were where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid, with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?"
"No..."
"Why am I the only one who ever has that dream?"[/quote]

I'm not going to let this thread die until I see an announcement of a release of this very awesome movie!
"Look Kent puts his name on his license plates"
"My Mom does the same thing with my underwear"
"Your Mom puts license plates on your underwear?"

Here's a little trivia for you guy's, did you know that a grown up Gabe Jarrett was in 'Apollo 13'?
Yep, he plays one of the guy's in mission control, he has like one line though, it's...
"He's good Andy." and gives a thumbs up as he says it.
Come on, give us this film on dvd!

Mitch...
"Did you know there's a guy livng in our closet?"
Chris...
"You've seen him too?"
Mitch...
"Who is he!?"
Chris...
"Hollyfeld, Laslo Hollyfeld."
Mitch...
"Why does he keep going into our closet?"
Chris...
"Why do YOU keep going into our closet?"
Mitch...
"To get my clothes, but that's not why he goes in their."
Chris...
"Of course not Mitch he's twice your size your clothes would never fit him. psss. Think before you ask these kinds of questions Mitch."
Classic!

A big round of congrats to anyone who can recite Chris's "Excited Bromide' theory word for word WITHOUT checking the movie! In other words, from memory.
Let's just see how good you 'Real Genius' fans REALLY are!

OK:
Chris: "Needless to say I was a little despondant about the meltdown, But then in the midst of my preparation for Harey Carey, it came to me, It is possible to synthesize excited bromide in an argon matrix, it's an exomer, frozen in it's excited state."
Kent: "That's impossible"
Chris: It's a chemical Laser, but in solid, not in gaseous form in difference to you Kent, it's like Lasing a stick of dynamite, you apply a field, we couple to a state which is radiatively coupled to a ground state, I figure we can extract at least 10 to the 21st photon per cubic centimeter, which will give 1 killajule per cubic centimeter at 600 nanometers or 1 megajule per liter.
Bodie: "Thats hotter than the sun!"
Someone says(I can't remember if it's Bodie or not, dammit):"It's small"
Dr. Hathaway: "It's supposed to be small"
Chris:"Of course we only have the 1 sample, and it's going to destroy itself as it lases, but..... everything is going to be fine, isn't it Mitch?"
Mitch:"Yeah"
Kent:"This is a complete waste of time"
Chris: "Do me a favor Kent and put the target in front of the cinder blocks will ya?
"Ok Mr. Taylor anytime your ready"
Mitch: " OK, Laser on!"
------------------------------------------------------------
Or something like that, I know I'm close, I've watched this movie at least 150 times, seriously!!! And again last night! I know I'm crazy.
So, see Columbia some of us need this movie on DVD, it is torture for those of us that love it!
C'mon please I don't know how much longer my VHS copy is going to last!

Close enough Sean! Congratulations, you are THE 'Real Genius' quote king!

I wonder how many times Val Kilmer had to read the script before he could remember all of that!

Probably not as many times as I've watched the movie to be able to quote it. Ive probably heard that quote more than Val!
Dang, if there's a remake maybe I'll get the part!
Just kidding, no remake could ever do this great movie justice!
