From Quotes
There's night and day, brother, both sweet things; sun, moon, and stars, brother, all sweet things; there's likewise a wind on the heath. Life is very sweet, brother; who would wish to die?
George Borrow

Tuck Pendleton

  • [slaps himself] How does that feel? Feels good! Now do it again! (slaps himself) The Tuck Pendleton Machine - zero defects!
  • I'm in a man, I'm in a strange man, I'll be a son of a bitch, I'm in a strange man surrounded by strangers in a strange room!
  • [Taps a light to fix it] State of the art.
  • Look Ozzy, who's nervous now ok? I know what our objectives are. I've done my homework and I can do this little job blindfolded, so everyone just calm down.
  • [The syringe containing the miniaturized pod is being shaken around in Ozzy's pocket] Ozzy? Am I being punished?
  • This guy is definitely not firing on all eight cylinders, Jack.
  • The Jack Putter Machine, zero defects. (leans back and sighs, to himself) God help us.

Jack Putter

  • I'm possessed!
  • Would I be in a doctor's office if I was feeling alright?

Victor Scrimshaw

  • Nuclear weapons, Jack. They mean nothing. Everybody's got them, no-one has the balls to use them. Am I right? Space, you say? Space is a flop, didn't you know that? An endless junkyard of orbiting debris. Ah, but...miniturization, Jack. That's the ticket. That's the edge that everybody's been looking for. Who will have that edge, Jack? What country will control miniturization? Frankly, I don't give a shit - I'm only in this for the money! And that's why, Jack, we've got to get that little pod out from inside of you!

Pod Computer Voice

  • Warning, approaching tricuspid valve of heart. Do not enter! Do not enter heart!
  • Foreign object detected, approaching through oesophageal passage.


Victor: Once he takes over the pod and gets the chip - let's re-enlarge.
Margaret: While still inside Mr. Putter?!
Victor: Why not?
Margaret: Have you any idea the kind of mess that would make?

Jack: No pain.
Tuck: What?
Jack: That's the thing I want from you, no pain. I mean just don't do anything weird in there, don't cause an embolism or an aneurysm - accidentally sever my spinal cord and kinda go "oh sorry". You know what I mean?
Tuck: Ok, no pain.
Jack: Thank you.

Tuck: I don't want to worry you or anything, Jack, but I saw something in here. I don't know, it's probably benign...
Jack: A tumor? You saw a tumor? How big is it?
Tuck: You're asking the wrong guy, Jack, from my point of view it looks like it's about the size of Candlestick Park.
Jack: Great, there goes my ulcer...

Tuck ~ Keep it coming Jack, okay, pal, here is how I spell relief, Jack, you just digested the bad guy.

[Jack burps loudly]


  • Inside Jack Putter, there's a hero trying to get out.
  • An adventure of incredible proportions.
