Hogarth Hughes:
First, you take a chocolate bar. Any bar'll do. Do you mind if I...?

Kent Mansley:
No, knock yourself out, skipper.

Hogarth Hughes:
[crumbles up coca-lax] You crumble up the chocolate into little pieces. [stirs the ice cream] Then you kind of just stir it into the ice cream. See?

Kent Mansley:
Yes, I see. What do you call this again?

Hogarth Hughes:
Landslide. It's new. Very new. [drops the coca-lax wrapper in the garbage.]

Kent Mansley:
Mmmm. Landslide. Topnotch. Mmmm. [while Hogarth makes himself a Landslide with a chocolate bar] You know, Hogarth, we live in a strange and wondrous time: the Atomic Age. But there's a dark side to progress, Hogarth. Ever hear of Sputnik?

Hogarth Hughes:
Yeah, first satellite in space.

Kent Mansley:
Foreign satellite, Hogarth, and all that implies. Even now it orbits overhead - Boop! Boop! - watching us. We can't see it but it's there, much like that giant thing in the woods. We don't know what it is or what it can do. I don't feel safe, Hogarth. Do you?

Hogarth Hughes:
What are you talking about?

Kent Mansley:
What am I talking about? (loses patience) What am I talking about?! I'm talking about your goddarned security, Hogarth! While you're snoozing in your widdle jammies, back in Washington we're wide awake and worried! Why? Because everyone wants what we have, Hogarth! Everyone! You think this metal man is fun, but who built it? The Russians? The Chinese? Martians? Canadians? I don't care! All I know is we didn't build it, and that's reason enough to assume the worst and blow it to kingdom come! Now, you are going to tell me about this thing, you are going to lead me to it, and we are going to destroy it before it destroys us! (his stomach begins to rumble) Hold that thought and stay right there!

(Kent rushes to the restroom. As soon as he's gone, Hogarth rushes out the door.)
