- VERHEIDEN: If I recall correctly, Earth is also missing from your collection.
- FORHEISER: She’s too complicated.
- VERHEIDEN: She?
- FORHEISER: Yea.
- VERHEIDEN: Why is Earth female.
- FORHEISER: Well, there’s life in her.
- VERHEIDEN: Indeed.
- FORHEISER: Like, a LOT.
- VERHEIDEN: Maybe too much.
- FORHEISER: Like I said, too complicated.
- VERHEIDEN: Sinuous.
- FORHEISER: Changing, swingin’ back and forth.
- VERHEIDEN: Unpredictable.
- FORHEISER: You’re getting it, man!
- VERHEIDEN: Not at all.
- FORHEISER: What not?
- VERHEIDEN: Why a male chauvinist, like you, would refuse Earth.
- FORHEISER: Chau-what?
- VERHEIDEN: Excessively proud of being male.
- FORHEISER: Like I said, too…
- VERHEIDEN: You wanted her.

- FORHEISER: All over you.
- VERHEIDEN: You may have a point in there.
