Bit: SERVO ON PHYSICS
Episode: 511- The Gunslinger
Joel: But, Tom, that
doesn't explain how John Ireland could go into the attorney's office and suddenly
appear on his horse in the street!
Tom: Look, Joel.
It's really just a broadened interpretation of quantum linear super-position.
a half-eaten sandwich): Super-buh-huh?
Tom: They simply
observe the apparent relative state of a John Ireland in one place while in actuality,
he co-existed in the objective vector state, see?
Crow: Uh, I have
a theory. The town is a bunch of false fronts and he ran over there real quick.
Joel: Right! I'm with him.
Tom: Guys, why
is it so hard to accept the fact that time is not an immutable forward progression,
but a factor in a space/time model of relativistic causality and determinism? Huh?
Guys? Hello? Jeez, I could tell the cat before these two! Okay, here. I'm gonna demonstrate.
Okay, WATCH...ME...CLOSELY! ALLEY OOP!!! (Tom exits to the right of the screen and
instantly reenters on the left).
Crow: Hey, wait!
Where'd he go?
Joel: I dunno.
Tom: I'm over
Crow: I HATE when
you do that!!!
Joel: But, Servo!
That's fantastic! That's amazing!
Tom: It's physics,
Joel. Plain and simple. You just exist in one observable region in phased space and
then...ZIP!!! (Tom disappears left and reappears screen right, in front of the counter,
looking into Cambot), you simply realign your point of origin, you see?
Crow: He does
this to me at night. Scares the hell outta me!
Tom: It's easy,
guys! A trained chimp could do it. C'mon Joel, try it, it's fun!
Joel: Okay. (Hesitantly)
I'm going to...excite myself...in a position...of undetermined...origin and region...and...ZOCK!
Tom: Nope! Nope!
Joel: It didn't
Crow: Well, I'm
not doing it. Doing it makes you chubby and stupid, like Tom!
(Tom appears next to Crow again) Say it to my face, Pinbeak!
D'oh! Oh, Joel!!!
Tom: ZIPPPP! (Appears
back at his normal position next to Joel) You know, I can also warp space and time
this way! Watch! (The Gizmonic door closes in front of Joel, Tom and Crow, but Cambot
pulls back to reveal the three of them standing in front of the Gizmonic door that
just closed, in the positions they were in at the beginning of the sketch. Crow's
sandwich is now uneaten.)
Joel: That still
doesn't explain how John Ireland is able to go into the attorney's office and...(Joel
realizes he's already said this before and makes a strange face as he senses the
feeling of deja vu)...end up on his...horse...on the...WHAT THE?!?
Tom: Haha! See
what I mean? Hahaha!
Crow: Hey! My
sammitch is whole again! Cool!
Joel: We'll be
Tom: No! No!
No! No! THEY'LL be right back. WE'LL be right HERE!
Joel: Honey, don't!
