Look at all the people. Maybe we'll see a movie star in the lobby.
Not much chance of that.
You're right. Thimble Theater was about cartoons. Popeye and stuff.
Maybe we'll see a cartoon star in the lobby.
A cartoon star in the lobby? Helix, after they made you, I really hope they broke the molds.

Сигар, Элзи Крайслер Художник-юморист, автор комиксов. Пробовал себя в разных профессиях, в том числе работал репортёром. В 1919 начал публиковать “Театр в наперстке” [Thimble Theater] – одноактные пьески в форме комиксов. В 1929 среди персонажей, прославивших автора, появился забавный морячок Popeye (“Пучеглазик”) с неизменной трубкой из кукурузного початка, который превращался в непобедимого силача, съев банку консервированного шпината. Позже Попай перекочевал в мультипликацию и стал “национальным героем”

Come on. We need to vote if the open theater is going to play the movie that we want.
Bite me!
Our two isn't enough. Luckily, I brought along a few of my other identity cards.
Coming Distractions
That is a lot of aliases.
Yeah. You'd think the politicians would be nicer to me, considering I'm a voting block all by myself.

Открытый театр – один из нью-йоркских экспериментальных театров, имеющий много общего с актёрской мастерской [workshop] и студией. Основан в 1963 Дж. Чайкином [Chaikin, Joseph] и П. Фелдманом [Feldman, Peter]. Специализируется на постановках новаторских спектаклей и не имеет стабильного репертуара. Актёры работают без театральных костюмов и грима, сцена имеет минимум декораций. Особое внимание уделяется участию в спектакле зрителей [audience participation]
Игра слов attraction – distraction. Сoming attraction – скоро на экране, готовится к выходу. На афише – профиль Кевина из комикса “Kevin and Kell”
Вообще, в этом комиксе неоднократно попадаются ссылки на комиксы других авторов

There's an Elvis movie playing.
It's good to be the King.
I consider myself to be a pretty good con man and rip off artist.
But when I see the prices a movie theater charges for snacks, it makes me realize just how small time I am.

The cord's tied off. My suit blowers are in reverse. I'm ready to go.

Breakfast at Tiffany's
You maniac! Don't you know that leaving the aisles can mean getting caught in the sticky goop on the theater floors and sucked down to a certain death?
Now follow me. I'm putting down a protective layer of popcorn.
This is how the La Brea Tar Pits got started.

Boss, you're going to get us thrown out.
So? We get our money back and come here another day.
If we're thrown out, we don't get our money back. They keep it.
What!?! They're holding my money hostage to ensure my good behavior? That's despicable! That's underhanded! That's…
Going to work.
Well, yeah. In conflicts between money and my principles, money always wins.

This is a public service announcement. Be on the lookout for this man.
Bruno Bunkleyutz is wanted for crimes ranging from stealing a safety pin from a wolf cub's tail on 8/27/96 to his recent impersonation of Pete Abrams. If found, beat him with a large stick, then report his location to the Rothland guards.
Sigh. Someday I'll be famous enough to have public service announcements warning people about me.
Remember to keep your helmet on when they photograph you. They had to take your picture down in the post office because it gave seeing eye dogs heart attacks.

I hope this is a good Japanese monster movie.
21st Century Fox
And by that, I mean really, really, bad!
Yeah! Dialog that doesn't match the lips. Obvious toy tanks and boats. Rubbery monsters crashing around on cardboard sets.
Hard to believe it's all done on a computer.
It really looks fake. Those programmers are geniuses!

Those fools! Mega Mecha Godzillabot Three was never meant to work with Windows! Now it is dangerously unstable and hostile to competition!
Take my Amiga. Our only chance is for you to fly up its nose, past the protective booger bots, and reprogram its brain.
This is so bad it makes my brain hurt. What a great movie!
It's like fine Texas Chili. It burns, but it's a good kind of burn.

Oh, John Droid!
Oh, Marsha Clone!
Oh, this could be a problem.
Hey, Lady. In the movies, whenever a man and a woman are isolated, they fall in love and live the rest of their lives together.
Does the guy ever give up his hopes and dreams to help the woman achieve hers?
You really are from another planet, aren't you?
