LOC/ Philadelphia, PA USA
Schubert: So these exogenous entities..
Schubert: oh of course, exogenous, what was I thinking. So, you really believe these ancient aliens have been beaming messages to our brain for thousands of years using a substance no one can see?
Calvin: That is what I believe. Yes.
Schubert: Do you want me to make you a tin foil hat?
Calvin: What if I told you I could prove it?
Schubert: (laughs) I'd ask you if you're willing to put your money where your mouth is.
Calvin: hand me that cocktail napkin.
Schubert: What for?
Calvin: I'm gonna write down a number (writes)
Schubert: (exclaims) Do you even have that kind of money?
Calvin: I will after I win this bet.
Schubert: You know what, okay. Let's drink to it.
Calvin: To proving our minds aren't our own.
Schubert: To making me an even richer man...
Seriously though, you got me curious, how the hell do you think you're going to convince anyone this crazy story is real?
Calvin: I was thinking I get the government to fund a secret multimillion dollar think tank to study the threats and opportunities of Exotic Matter.
Schubert: You're serious aren't you?
Calvin: Deadly. You want it?
