The clip lowell dreams of change from Silent Running (1972) with Cliff Potts, Bruce Dern How far out do they go before they blow? About six miles. We should feel a hefty jolt. I want a front-row seat when they go! I'll bet you do. Lowell, do you have to eat that stuff in here? It stinks. You never let up, do you? Now you hurt his feelings. I'd like to know what any one of you knows about real food. What do you mean, real food? Out of the dirt? That's real food? That's right. This happens to be nature's greatest gift. To a celibate, maybe. Come on, you guys. Maybe he knows something we don't. Lowell, give me a slice of that cantaloupe. Don't ask Lowell for a slice. I'd be delighted to give you a slice of it. Just sit down and shut up. Sit down. Sit down! And shut up and leave me alone, all of you, and let me eat. What's the big deal? I can't see the difference between that and this. You don't see the difference? The difference is that I grew it. That's what the difference is. I picked it and I fixed it. And it has a taste, and it has some colour and it has a smell. It calls back a time when there were flowers all over the earth. There were valleys, and there were plains of tall green grass... .. that you could lie down in, that you could go to sleep in. There were blue skies and there was fresh air. There were things growing everywhere, not just in domes... .. blasted millions of miles out into space. Look at that stuff. How can you guys sit there and say anything to me about this? Look at this crap! Look at that! Dried, synthetic crap! You've become so dependent on it, I bet you can't even live without it. Why would we want to, Lowell? Don't you realise how pitiful that is, what you just asked me? On earth, everywhere you go, the temperature is 75º. Everything is the same. All the people are exactly the same.

The clip lowell dreams of change Part 2 from Silent Running (1972) with Bruce Dern, Jesse Vint Now, what kind of life is that? So why do you wanna go back? Because it's not too late to change it. What do you want, Lowell? There's hardly any more disease. There's no more poverty. Nobody's out of a job. That's right. Every time we have the argument, you say the same thing. You give me the same three answers. "Everybody has a job. " That's always the last one. But you know what else there is no more of? There is no more beauty. There's no more imagination and no frontiers left to conquer. You know why? One reason why. The same attitude that you guys are givin' me in this room today. And that is: nobody cares. Look on the wall behind you. Look at that little girl's face. I know you've seen it. But you know what she's never gonna be able to see? She's never gonna be able to see the simple wonder of a leaf in her hand,... .. because there's not gonna be any trees. Now, you think about that. If people were interested, something would've been done a long time ago. Are you ready? I'm ready. Wait a minute. I don't think you guys understand what this means. Please don't blow up the domes. Which one first? Outboard cluster first. Let's hit six. They're not disposable. I haven't got any choice, Lowell. They're not replaceable.
