got mixed up. Like a Martian mind-meld.

- He's crackin' up.

- Stay away from the magazines.

No, you don't understand... The past,

present and future all went together.

I had kids with her, I could see the kids!

Two boys... No, three boys...

Excuse me! How long will all this take?

Well, that's up to you.

- It is?

- The car, you nut.

- The car... A few days.

- That long?

I'm gonna have to give it

my full attention.

Well, I'd better call a phone.

Can I use your cab?

There's a cab in the office.

But the uncertainty principle postulates

a universe of chaos, where

everything happens merely by chance.

Thank you.

- Well?

- We'll take care of it.

Hello, I need a taxi...

Catherine Boyd, B-O-Y-D.

What? Oh... What's the address here?

- 130 Broad.

- 130 Broad.

First stop is the Silas Paine Institute,

then 112 Mercer.

- Your address?

- 112 Mercer.

Two minutes! Thank you. Bye.

Well... It was Belgium.

- It was? What was?

- A study.

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

- I don't want you to worry...

- James! The taxi's coming.

- Well done, honey...

- Belgium.

- Two days, three at the most?

- We'll call you.

I, for one, will never believe

that God plays dice

with the universe.

- We're wasting time! Serve already!

- That's ridiculous!

How can you waste something

that doesn't exist?

Time doesn't exist? Since when?

I wouldn't know. If time doesn't exist,

then there is no "when".

You hear, Liebknecht?

Another crazy theory.

Then tell me the correct time, now.

You see, you can't.

Because as you're telling me,

the future has become the past,

therefore there is no present,

therefore time doesn't exist!



Now your racket doesn't exist.

- Oh.

- Yes?

- You're Albert Einstein.

- Thank you.

- Wow! May I say what a great fan I am?
