Infinite Improbability : The Quantum Heresy

Milkman: 
Now Then, Madam - 
I'm going to show you three numbers, 
and I want you to tell me if you see any similarity between them. 

(holds up a card saying '3' three times)

Lady: 

They're all number three.

Milkman: 

No. Try again.

Lady: 

They're all number three?

Milkman: 

No, They're all number three. 

(he ticks his board again)


...number NIINE, number NINE, number NINE ...

 


RIMMER: 
Holly, what's going on?

HOLLY: 
What?

RIMMER:
 
What's happening?

HOLLY: 
Um, Hercule Poirot's just stepped off the steaming train.  
And if you want my opinion, I think they all did it.
 
RIMMER: 
Why did we have to have you as the ship's computer?  
We'd be better off with a bucket of sheep's slop running things.
 
HOLLY: 
If you've got a complaint, just come straight out with it.  
Don't hide behind innuendo and hyperbole.
 
RIMMER: 
Why is it raining fish in our sleeping quarters?!

HOLLY: 
I'd be lying if I said I knew.  
The only comparable incident on record is in 12th century Burgandy when it rained herring.

The Quantum Last Jedi






" I'll always be with You.
Just like Our Father.

See you around, Han."


"He's doing this for a reason.
He's stalling so we can escape.
 
"Escape?
It is one man against an army.
We have to help him, we have to fight."
 

"No, no. We are The Spark 
That Will light The Fire 
That Will be kept burning all Year Round,
That sits in The Hearth
That is in The Centre of The House 
That Leia, The Princess Built
- Will Build -
That Leia, The Queen will fuel and tend,
That Rey, The Hidden Dark Princess will inherit,
and 
That Occupies the Centre of The House That Luke Built,
To finish what His Father had started before Luke and Leia were even born
That will burn The First Order down  -

The Royal House of Skywalker.
Skywalker's doing this so we can survive.
