Windows are much cheaper!" And I say I have to have, and I have! Dat over there, dat is the only window. And even for dat, we have protection. Look. [activates electric window cover] Dat will stand up to any avalanche. Uh, dat too was very expensive. All this to study cosmic rays, huh?

First Student Climber: What are you talking about?
Second Student Climber: His head! It was torn off!

Alan Brooks: Looks like you're goin' for a climb.

Prof. Crevett: And then dere is da cloud.
Alan Brooks: What cloud?
Prof. Crevett: Come on, Alan, you know what I'm talking about. Da cloud where there should be no cloud.
Alan Brooks: Where there are mountains, there are always clouds.
Prof. Crevett: But dis one remains static. On da side of da Trollenberg it never moves.
Alan Brooks: A freak of nature.
Prof. Crevett: A radioactive freak of nature?

Prof. Crevett: Well, Alan. For the first time in weeks, the Trollenberg is free from clouds.
Alan Brooks: Yes - and let's hope it stays that way.
