Hideo Ikeezumi: (laughter) That's been going on for a long time.
Wiseman: It doesn’t cheapen the process.
Ikeezumi: It was bad before too, but it's rapidly getting worse. They may get upset.
Wiseman: Why does somebody ask for a cigarette at a given moment?
Ikeezumi: Watching and listening are both interesting at the same time.
Wiseman: No. All the cliches are true.
Ikeezumi: Well, yeah. Naturally.
Wiseman: You can dream the cut. It hasn’t been challenged.

Wiseman: If I am running around all day carrying equipment and trying to be reasonably alert, I have to be in shape.
Ikeezumi: Things warp and rub and such, so it becomes interesting. But from a child's point of view, what would you call it?
Wiseman: I would resist defining it.
