Quotes from Martin Landau's Characters

    1. Victor: Nobody likes scientists.
    2. Mr. Rzykruski: They like what science gives them, but not the questions, no. Not the questions that science asks.
    3. Victor: [thinks for a second] Actually, I have a question.
    4. Mr. Rzykruski: He, he. That is why you are a scientist.
    5. Victor: I was doing my experiment, my project, and the first time it worked great, but the next time it didn't. I mean, it sort of worked, but then it didn't. And I don't know why.
    6. Mr. Rzykruski: Then maybe you never really understood it the first time. People think science is here [points to his head], but it is also here [places his hand on his chest]. The first time, did you love your experiment?
    7. Victor: Yes. [thinks of Sparky licking his hand]
    8. Mr. Rzykruski: And the second time?
    9. Victor: [Thinks of the invisible fish] No. I just wanted it over.
    10. Mr. Rzykruski: Then you changed the variables.
    11. Victor: I was doing it for the wrong reason.
    12. Mr. Rzykruski: Science is not good or bad, Victor. But it can be used both ways. That is why you must always be careful.
    From Frankenweenie. Submitted by Spencer P (18 months ago)
    1. Bela Lugosi: I refuse to drive in this country. Too many madmen.
    From Ed Wood. Submitted by Adam O (18 months ago)
