Terrific. I'll remember that|the next time I throw a party.

Oh, not bad. Not bad.

- You don't have to be crazy around him...|- But it helps?

Alice Cable, new kid on the block.|You part of Holland's crew?

I'm Linda Holland.

You're Dr Holland.

I'm a Dr Holland, but not the Dr Holland,|boy genius and oddball.

That's Alec. He's the brains.|I just cook up what he invents.

Don't believe her.|She's got an IQ like a phone number.

I want you to run up a variation on the|formula with the host on Alessandro's fur.


Hello. I understand you have a sensor out.|Do you wanna go out and take a look?

Well, I guess I could ask Charlie|to give us an escort.

We could ask your mother|to come along, too. Come on.

The only dangerous thing out there is the|government agents with their popguns.

It's your first day.|I'll take you on a Cook's tour.

Ritter's always after me|to get some fresh air. He'll be tickled pink.

What do you say?

Oh, man.

You look like a tree.

Sometimes I feel like a tree.

- Like the swamps?|- Hate the swamps. Hate bugs.

- Hate things without legs.|- A neatness freak, huh?

- You could eat off my kitchen floor.|- You could eat off the swamps.

Maybe half the world|could eat off the swamps.

More than likely,|the swamps will eat off us.

Like, what happened|to the guy I'm replacing?

The 'gator was only following his|natural way. Can't blame a guy for that.

I paid a fortune for these boots.

You'd better keep movin'.|There's quicksand around here.

- Keep your eyes open, too.|- For what?

One of these just might|jump out and do you in.

There's over 100 species|of genus orchis here.

So much beauty in the swamps,|if you open up your eyes to it.

Take a look into your own body,|one of God's most magnificent creations,
