I've never seen a mind like the one your daughter has. You have to see what she becomes.
We all gonna end up unemployed ridin' around in this pile a junk.
You welcome to walk the 16 miles.
Or sit in the back of the bus.
You have identification on ya?
We're just on our way to work at NASA, sir.
I had no idea they hired...
Quite a few women working on the space program.
