Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Smack to the Future Pt. 1[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Curious Icon.png There's something strange about this wormhole from another dimension.
Wiggum Icon.png How so?
Stephen Hawking Curious Icon.png Robots are emerging at a rate of ten thousand kilotonnes per hour. But the mass of the remote universes is only decreasing at a rate of one microgram per century!
Homer Angry Icon.png This is America, sir! I'll kindly remind you not to use the metric system unless you want your face punched off.
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Let's examine the robot guts more closely. Hey Sky Finger! Play with your funbots!

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Confused Icon.png What are those things popping out between the microprocessor and the steam valve?
Stephen Hawking Icon.png They're chronons! The quantum of time!
Professor Frink Icon.png Of course, that explains everything! I'm assuming.
Stephen Hawking Intense Icon.png Don't you see? The robots aren't coming from another space. They're coming from another time!
Evil Homer Devious Icon.png Crafty!

Smack to the Future Pt. 2[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Based on the polarization and general demeanor of the chronons, I deduce that these robots are invading from the future.
Lisa Smug Icon.png Aha! Then we've just got to wait until the robots are built, then stop them before they come!
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Exactly. But that might not be for hours, or even centuries.
Professor Frink Icon.png B'hoy! Let's use donuts to speed up time!
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon.png In what universe does that make even the slightest bit of sense?

End[edit | edit source]

While these Alternate Homers are visiting your Springfield, keep sending them to Plunder the Future!

Smack to the Future Pt. 3[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Intense Icon.png Bart? Have you been shooting chronons at the black hole?
Bart Icon.png Probably. I shoot a lot of stuff at a lot of things.
Stephen Hawking Happy Icon.png This is incredible! You've opened up a gateway to the future. We need to send a scouting party through, to ascertain what fate awaits us.
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Professor Frink, you're not helping much around here. Lead this ragtag band of Homers on a journey of scientific exploration.
Homer Happy Icon.png With a side order of plundering!

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Homer Sleepy Icon.png And... we're back.
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Did you locate the future source of the robot army?
Homer Icon.png No, we totally forgot about that. But we sure plundered everything that wasn't nailed down!
King-Size Homer Icon.png They nail things down in the future because stuff tends to hover.
Lisa Alarmed Icon.png Wait, where's Professor Frink? He didn't come back!
Stephen Hawking Deadpan Icon.png He must have become stuck somewhere in the distant future. Act 3, most likely.

Smack to the Future Pt. 4[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Marge Scared Icon.png I hate to nag, but I'm still being stabbed by robots from the future. Ow! Does anyone have a tourniquet?
Stephen Hawking Curious Icon.png Hmm. Maybe we can turn this time tunnel to our advantage.
Stephen Hawking Happy Icon.png I'll use the parts from the smashed evil robots to build GOOD robots. Then I'll send them into the future to stop the evil robots before they travel to the past!
Lisa Icon.png Hooray! We will have been saved!
Stephen Hawking Icon.png I'll just bolt these robot scraps together, like so, then program in the three laws of robotics.
Ned Shocked Icon.png Heavens to heckaroonie, that won't work! If you want goodness, the program you need is "GOTO 10."
Ned Icon.png The Ten Commandments, that is!

Smack to the Future Pt. 5[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon.png There, I've got all three laws of robotics programmed in.
Ned Icon.png Hold your horsies! I'm still sermonizing about the Ten Commandments, plus I threw in a couple extras about not coveting thy neighbor's premium items.
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon.png What is wrong with you people? You're prattling on while I'm trying to save your lives and your universe!
Ned Icon.png ...and thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's Barney's Bowlarama, and... done. Okily dokily, now you can save us.
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon.png The illogic of the human race never ceases to enrage me. Now gather up some chronons to propel these robots to the future!

Smack to the Future Pt. 6[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon.png The good robots are fully functional and ready to enter the time hole.
Herman Icon.png Hold on there, citizen. The evil robot militia is heavily armed with top quality pikes and daggers. And one's packing a trident.
Marge Scream Icon.png Ow! Ow! Ow!
Herman Icon.png Yeah, that guy. If we want our good, patriotic robots to stand a fighting chance, we've got to arm them with exactly identical weaponry.

Smack to the Future Pt. 7[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon.png If nobody has any further objections, I'll be saving the universe now.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png Hurry, hurry! After one final prayer.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png Oh mighty Sky Finger, cradle these robot souls in the loving bosom of your fingertip.
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Now?
Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png Amen.
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Now?
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon.png Hurry up!
Stephen Hawking Intense Icon.png Robots! Into the time breach!

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Marge Scared Icon.png It didn't work! In fact, there are even more evil robots now! And they're equally well armed! Ow ow ow!
Herman Icon.png Was that the trident?
Marge Serious Icon.png No, just three ordinary javelins.

Smack to the Future Pt. 8[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Confused Icon.png Why didn't your plan work, Professor?
Stephen Hawking Icon.png It appears there was a polarity error in my computation of the chronon spin matrix.
Barbarian Homer Icon.png Blarrrgh?
Stephen Hawking Sad Icon.png My army of good robots didn't go to the future... they went to the past!
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon.png Uh, hello? That makes no sense. If they went to the past, we would have seen them come out.
Lisa Worried Icon.png We did see them come out! The robots we just sent into the time hole WERE the robots that attacked us in the past!
Ned Worried Icon.png But the robots we built were good, God-fearing robots! What would make them turn evil?
Comic Book Guy Icon.png There's only one logical answer. Somebody must have sabotaged their programming. But who?

Smack to the Future Pt. 9[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Homer Shocked Icon.png Oh my God, I know who did it! It had to be Evil Homer! He's been scheming and scheming!
Homer Serious Icon.png Plus his eyes were darting suspiciously, and he's got the word "EVIL" right there in his name!
Evil Homer Surprised Icon.png What, I? How preposterous. Admittedly, I've been scheming... but about something completely unrelated, and yet to be revealed.
Homer Confused Icon.png Then who did it?
Lisa Curious Icon.png Hang on... there was someone else trying to control the robots with ten, count them, TEN commandments!
Lisa Shouting Icon.png It was Ned Flanders! He must have converted the robots into religious zealots, programmed to punish the sins of humanity!
Ned Sad Icon.png Gosh, I guess it WAS me. Well, forgive and forget, right? I believe that's in the Bible. Right after "an eye for an eye."

Smack to the Future Pt. 10[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon.png Kill Ned! He used love and prayer to turn the robots into murder machines!
Strongman Homer Icon.png I still say it was Evil Homer!
Rev. Lovejoy Surprised Icon.png Kill someone! Anyone!
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon.png Stop it! It wasn't Ned, and it wasn't Evil Homer.
Stephen Hawking Sad Icon.png It was... me!
Marge Surprised Icon.png *gasp* Why, Professor? Why did you send evil robots to attack us in the past?
Stephen Hawking Deadpan Icon.png Why not?
Comic Book Guy Icon.png Checkmate.
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon.png You people drove me insane! Everything you do and say is totally anti-science. My sympathy lies with the reasonable, rational killbots.
Robot Icon.png And we like Professor Hawking, because he doesn't have a weird human accent.
Homer Angry Icon.png You won't get away with this, Hawking! Save us, mighty Sky Finger! Smash the robots!
Stephen Hawking Icon.png Go ahead! I'll just use the pieces to make even more robots! That's why they'll never stop coming!
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon.png Curses. Unlike most time travel stories, this one has no logical flaws whatsoever. We are defeated.
Homer Furious Icon.png I'm not giving up that easily. Fight, everyone! Fight for my very life!

End[edit | edit source]

The story will continue in the future, also known as Act Three.
