The Transcript For This Page
Bert, Ernie and Tobi at the patio table. Bert is starting to get a bit exasperated. Tobi is holding his arms out, palms forward.
Bert: Yes, and all this is relevant how?
Tobi: Okay okay, here's the deal. The UW government hates my guts ...
Medium closeup of Ernie, maybe we can see a bit of Bert beside him.
Ernie: No it doesn't.
Ernie: You have awards and honors out the butt from the UW and just about every organization known to man.
Cut to, essentially, Bert's POV. Ernie is in the near left and Tobi towards the right, a bit farther away.
Ernie: Geez, Louise, you even got named Time's Man of the Millennium. Everybody loves you.
Tobi: Ernie, you don't get it.
Medium shot of Tobi, holding one palm forward.
Tobi: What else could they say?
Tobi: I released all the hardware specs and software as open source.
Tobi: I did it simultaneously across the solar system, so nobody could bury it.
Looking over Tobi's shoulder towards the Brothers, who are looking thoughtful.
Tobi: It was a fait accompli.
Tobi: What else could they do but put on their best faces and pretend to honor me?
Bert: But that was then and this is now.
Looking over Bert's shoulder at Tobi. Tobi is just sitting with his arms crossed.
Medium c/u on Bert.
Bert: It's not what you did then, but what you are doing now, isn't it?
Bert: You have another disruptive technology up your sleeve, right?
Medium on Tobi, smiling broadly and spreading his arms wide.
Tobi: Two disruptive technologies, actually.
Tobi: Number one: Chimeric Food Sources.
