Quotes from

Pete Krumbein: Every boy has a dog.


Pete Krumbein: Throughout the ages, man has sought to look behind the veil that hides him from tomorrow. And through the ages, certain men have looked into the polished crystal... and seen.

Stanton Carlisle: Yes... go on... his name was Jib. Go on!
