I know this is all very confusing to you, so
I’ll attempt to explain. You are on the starship USS Enterprise. American? No it’s a vessel of the United Federation
of Planets and Earth is a member. Talk. Give me a martini straight up with two olives. For the vitamins. I might just get like this place. Let’s see if the Braves are on.
How do you cut on this TV. TV? Yes, the ‘boob tube’. I believe he means television sir. That particular form of entertainment not
last much beyond the year 2040. What do you guys do? I mean, you don’t drink and you ain’t got no TV. It must be kind of boring. That’s what all this is about. A lot has change in the past 300 years.
People are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of things. We’ve eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions. We grown out of our infancy. Here’s what I propose. You can’t stay on the Enterprise, but I have arranged for us
to rendezvous with the USS Charleston bound for earth. They will deliver you there. Then what will happen to us? There is no trace of my money, my office is gone. What will I do? How will I live? This is the 24th century. Material needs no longer exist. Then what’s the challenge? The challenge, Mr. Offenhouse, is to improve
yourself. To enrich yourself. Enjoy it.
