- Gunther complaining to Anna Navarre about his own private conspiracy theory. Even funnier is that the sequel reveals that Gunther was right, the maintenance man was plotting against him.
Anna: Are you sure you pressed the right button?
Gunther: I do not make mistakes of that kind!
Anna: Your hand might have slipped.
Gunther: No, I wanted orange. It gave me lemon-lime.
Anna: The machine would not make a mistake.
Gunther: It's the maintenance man. He knows I like orange!
Anna: So you think the staff has some kind of plot?
Gunther: Yes! They do it on purpose!
- The final encounter with the megalomaniac businessman, Bob Page.
- Who could forget this exchange:
- Disposing of Gunther:
Gunther Hermann: Eet ees a simple message I am demonstreting. Ve know vere you are going and vat you intend.
JC Denton: And I know something about you.
Gunther Hermann: You kno you vill be defeeted.
(JC can make a failed appeal to his honor with a "gentleman's agreement", or...)
JC Denton: I know your UNATCO killphrase: "Laputan Machine."
Gunther Hermann: I am NOT a mashee---*twitch twitch*
JC Denton: Sticks and stones...
Gunther Hermann: *Ludicrous Gibs*
- Snarking Walton after the above exchange:
JC Denton: You're worried, Simons. We almost have a cure.
Walton Simons: You have nothing. Even if Everett succeeds, you can't synthesize enough vaccine to stop an epidemic. You'd need a Universal Constructor, and don't think Page Industries is going to leave one lying around, not after what you did to the one in Hong Kong.
JC Denton: I was never properly trained in its operation.
Walton Simons: Laugh it up, Denton.
