    I'm not going to watch it now, because the last time I watched a movie from here I was frightened so much my hands are still shaking. But I'm sure it's great .
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    Aww, come on. There's Japanese music and everything! A lot of their moves look positively human...

    That's pretty cool. Now all they have to do is make the eyes functional and add a brain unit, and you've got droids!

    Bah! Lurker is just trying to frighten you. You'll miss it unless you turn the volume up and pay close attention.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Yeah. That ghost isn't that freaky. I mean you can hardly see it in the hub caps.

    Amazing robots. If there was such a thing as a dancing Turing test, these droids would have passed it. They dance much better than a few humans I know.
