Dialogue Edit

Man of Yesteryear Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon What in the world? Where am I?
Zia Simpson Happy Icon It worked! Don't freak out, I'm your great-great-great-great-granddaughter, Zia.
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon My great-what-where-daughter, who-a?
Zia Simpson Icon This is the year 2041. You’re almost two hundred years in the future.
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon Ahhhh!!! Send me back! I wanna see my family!
Zia Simpson Icon Well, technically, you don’t have a family. You’re a clone with implanted memories of a past you never actually lived.
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon Ahhhhhh!!!!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Virgil Simpson Sad Icon The future? Dear God. What’s it like? Who won the Civil War?
Zia Simpson Snide Icon Which one? There’ve been five.
Virgil Simpson Sad Icon Does racism still exist?
Zia Simpson Icon The human race has evolved beyond the pettiness of racial bigotry.
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon Whew. I’m finally free from persecution.
Zia Simpson Apathetic Icon Now they’re just racist against clones.
Virgil Simpson Sad Icon Ah, crap.

Man of Yesteryear Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Virgil Simpson Annoyed Icon Why the hell did you bring me here, little girl?
Zia Simpson Happy Icon To help me with my family tree presentation for school. After that, I can put you in the Clone Recycler and you’ll go back to your previous state of, uh, “not existing”.
Virgil Simpson Icon Hm. “Not existing”. I see. Interesting. Pardon me a sec...
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!
Zia Simpson Surprised Icon Great-great-great-great-great Grampa, come back! Wait, that was one too many “greats”. It’s four, not five.
Zia Simpson Happy Icon Great-great-great-great Grampa, come back!!! *counting* One-two-three-four. Perfect.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon The clown! I recognize you. My God! You haven’t aged a day!
Krusty Oldannoyed Icon I’m almost a hundred years old, pal. Flattery will get you nowhere. Unless you’re a foxy broad, which you do not appear to be.
Virgil Simpson Icon It’s me, Virgil! You helped hide me at your circus.
Krusty Oldannoyed Icon I don’t have a circus, Mac. I had a TV show. Until “cancel culture” caught up with me. The network “cancelled” my show because it had no “culture”.
Virgil Simpson Icon I don’t know what any of that means, but I need you to help me again.
Krusty Oldconfused Icon Again? Were we in a cult together? Pyramid scheme? Buddy cop movie in the eighties? If you wanna make a sequel, all inquiries need to go through my agent, who died twenty years ago.
Virgil Simpson Annoyed Icon Argh! You’re no help at all!
Krusty Oldannoyed Icon Don’t call me until there’s a script attached!

Man of Yesteryear Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Virgil Simpson Sad Icon My God. The future is such a crazy place. Such tall buildings. So many horseless carriages. So many discarded scooters on the ground.
Professor Frink Silhouette Icon Excuse me, fine sir. I am a time traveller from the year 2020. Can you tell me what year it is?
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon You’re from the past? Me too!
Professor Frink Happy Icon Ah, it is indeed a small world, universe, and space time continuum. Glayvin.
Virgil Simpson Icon You know, it really really is.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Professor Frink Sad Icon Heavens. A clone with implanted memories who is being hunted by a killer. That’s quite a story.
Professor Frink Happy Icon I think I will go back in time, write a movie about it, and call it “The Runner, with the Blades, and the Hoivik, and Glayvinnn and the Running. So Much Running”.
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon It can’t fail with a title like that. I assume. What’s a screenplay?
Professor Frink Sad Icon A waste of time, unless you have a star attached.
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon Wow. In the future you have control of the stars?
Professor Frink Icon Only agents and publicists do.
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon Wow. They must be gods amongst men.
Professor Frink Deadpan Icon They certainly think of themselves that way.

Man of Yesteryear Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Zia Simpson Happy Icon G-X-4 Grampa. I found you!
Virgil Simpson Surprised Icon What did you call me?
Zia Simpson Icon G-X-4 Grampa. It’s an abbreviation of great-great-great-great Grampa. It’s shorter.
Virgil Simpson Annoyed Icon By one syllable.
Zia Simpson Happy Icon Right. Think of all the time we’ll save.
Professor Frink Icon The math checks out! Tell me, child. Why did you bring this man-clone here just to hunt him and kill him, with the hurting and the chasing?
Zia Simpson Sad Icon G-X-4 Grampa, I didn’t bring you here to kill you. I brought you here to find out more about the harsh realities of early African American history.
Virgil Simpson Annoyed Icon Really?
Zia Simpson Happy Icon It’s very important to document and pass down these stories. “Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it”. I believe the great Elon Musk said that. Or at least he claims he did.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Professor Frink Happy Icon You know, once your historic interview is done, I could send G-X-4 Grampa to an alternate dimension where racism does not exist. For humans, or clones.
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon Will my family be there?
Professor Frink Icon Do you want them to be?
Virgil Simpson Icon Of course.
Professor Frink Sad Icon I had to ask. You’d be surprised how many people do not like their relatives. Myself, included. *sighs*

Man of Yesteryear Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon …And then I lived a long and happy life in Canada.
Zia Simpson Happy Icon Wow. What a tale. I’m glad I was able to record it. But I’m sorry I brought you here without really considering your feelings.
Virgil Simpson Sad Icon Yeah, that happens a lot a couple hundred years ago.
Zia Simpson Sad Icon I hope you can forgive me.
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon You’re family, kid. Of course I can.
Zia Simpson Crying Icon I’ll miss you, great-great-great-great Grampa.
Virgil Simpson Happy Icon I’ll miss you too. And I’m gonna tell my son, your great-great-great Grampa all about you.
Professor Frink Embarrassed Icon I would advise against that, as the space time continuum could shatter if—
Virgil Simpson Icon *disappears*
Professor Frink Sad Icon Oh well, fingers crossed.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Zia Simpson Icon Thanks for all your help, Prof. Frink.
Professor Frink Icon Think nothing of it.
Zia Simpson Icon So what did you come to the future for?
Professor Frink Happy Icon Well, building my time machine was a very expensive endeavor, so I thought I’d pay it off by buying a Sports Almanac from said future, and wagering on the predetermined outcome of said games.
Zia Simpson Snide Icon Like in Back to the Future 2?
Professor Frink Angry Icon No, not like that at all. Now tell me, where can I find a Sports Almanac store?
Zia Simpson Apathetic Icon Sports don’t exist anymore. They were deemed too dangerous for humans to play.
Professor Frink Sad Icon *sigh* The mob is going to kill me.
