You're looking at the undersea
gardens of Catalina lsland. . .
. . .a paradise of exotic fish
and giant kelp.
Largest of these
That's what l said, madam,
Note the gentle, swaying motion
of the kelp plants, like a lovely ballet.
And if a mermaid should happen
to join our ballet. . .
. . .remember, anything can happen
in the mysterious depths of the ocean.
-Any time, Jenny.
What in heaven's name
do you think you're doing?
-You talking to me?
-Yes, l'm talking to you.
-That's my suit on your line.
-Oh, l'm sorry.
-That's a pretty funny-looking suit.
-My mermaid tail.
Would you please throw it back?
That's difficult. lt's all tangled.
Come aboard, and l'll untangle it.
Well, that's a little difficult too,
since l'm bottomless.
Oh, yeah, l see what you mean.
Here. Get into this.
And another thing,
don't you believe in signs?
-Now what are you talking about?
-That sign over there that says:
''No fishing. ''
-l wasn't exactly fishing.
-Well, then what were you doing?
Maybe l was hunting for mermaids.
l'm gonna have you arrested.
They're gonna have you arrested,
going around without your bottom.
your company's new device. . .
-. . .overcomes weightlessness in space?
-lt actually simulates gravity?
-Mr. Templeton, could you explain?
-Gentlemen. Gentlemen. One at a time.
What do you call this thing we saw?
Technically, this thing is referred to as. . .
. . .Gravity lnertial Stabilized
The initials are G-l-S-M-O, and that
spells Gismo, and that's what we call it.
-I got a little problem. Can I come up?
-l'll come down to you.
-Do the Russians have Gismo?
-No, they'd like it.
-Can you give us the equation?
-No, l'm sure they'd like that even better.
Excuse me, l have to leave. My partner,
Mr. Molloy, will answer any questions.
-You can handle that, can't you, Einstein?
-l'll fake it, old buddy.
All right, fellas and little lady.
Fire away. But remember, Templeton's
the brains. l just move the merchandise.
How did he arrive at this equation?
Well. . . .
This building is called the M-1 Building.
All this specially designed
for testing spacecraft and subsystems.
The laboratory is fully equipped
with a thermal vacuum chamber. . .
-. . .a superclean room and a space--
-Mrs. Nelson, may l see you a moment?
Oh, yes, Mr. Goodwin.
Would you excuse me, please?
-When you finish with the tour. . .
-. . .come to my office.
l'd like to mobilize Public Relations.
The press are clamoring for Gismo data. . .
-. . .and you might be equipped to write it.
Did you say that l should write it, sir?
Oh, l'd like that very much, Mr. Goodwin.
l really would.
But you must understand that l'm just
a beginner, no experience whatsoever.
-l have every confidence in your work.
-Oh, thank you, Mr. Goodwin.
Besides, l've taken
Oh, that's very kind of you, sir.
The tour, l'd bet--
Hi, Jen. How do you like your first week
in a think factory?
lt's like being at college.
l even had an offer to stay after school.
l noticed. Remember, the campus widow
can't just brush off the dean of women.
How does everybody
know so much about me?
That badge you're wearing,
it represents a tight security check.
Sex, female. Marital status, widow.
Widow, that's like catnip.
Well, not for that cat.
Donna, may l borrow a dime, please?
l have to call my dog, thanks.
