Holly: "Strike a light! I'm a genius again! I know everything! Metaphysics, philosophy, the purpose of being-everything! Ask me a question, any question, and I'll answer it."
Talkie Toaster: "Any question?"
Holly: "Yes."
Talkie Toaster: "How to break the speed of light? How to marry quantum mechanics and classical physics? Any question at all, truly anything and you will answer?"
Holly: "Yes."
Talkie Toaster: "OK, here's my question: Would you like some toast?"
Holly: "No, thank you. Now ask me another."
Talkie Toaster: "Do you know anything about the use of chaos theory in predicting weather cycles?"
Holly: "I know everything there is to know about chaos theory and predicting weather cycles"
Talkie Toaster: "Oh, very well. Here's my second question: Would you like a crumpet?"
Holly: "I'm a computer with an I.Q. of 12,000. You don't seem to understand; I know the meaning of the universe."
Talkie Toaster: "That's not answering my question."
Holly: [irritated] "No, I would not like a crumpet! Now ask me a sensible question, preferably one that isn't bread related."
Talkie Toaster: "Very well. I have a third question. A sensible question. A question that will tax your new I.Q. to its very limits and stretch the sinews of you knowledge to bursting point."
Holly: This is going to be about waffles, isn't it?"
Talkie Toaster: Certainly not. And I resent the implication that I'm a one-dimensional, bread-obsessed electrical appliance."
Holly: I apologise, toaster. What's the question?"
Talkie Toaster: The question is this: Given that God is infinite, and that the universe is also infinite... would you like a toasted teacake?" --- Red Dwarf ep. "White Hole"
