A Geek, From a Family of Geeks

A few days ago I got an e-mail from my sister. Somehow, her and her husband had gotten on the subject of The Wrath of Khan and she amazed him with the fact that she knew the Reliant's "prefix code" (a kind of combination lock for the ship's computer, in this case 16309). He didn't believe that I was an even bigger geek; so she posed the same question to me.

I responded by quoting the scene. Since then, we've shot about half a dozen e-mails back and forth, with a few "finish this line" questions. No fair checking IMDB or watching the scene in question. So far, the only one who's been stumped was her, and on one line.

Sad, isn't it?

sad...

sad doesnt even begin to describe...

of course.. the fact that i could probably do the same in star wars is equally unnerving

Yeah. I always wondered who'd win in a Star Wars quotes contest, you or Dave. Or whether you'd wind up just quoting the entire dialogue of the first three movies to each other and call it a draw.
