SAMUEL CURTIS:
When we first saw it, we knew there was just one thing to be done.

THE BOY:
It was scientific.

SAMUEL CURTIS:
And sociological.

THE BOY:
That's right, and a lot of fun.

SAMUEL CURTIS:
We knew in this world, there could only be one.

BOTH:
The baby in the jar with glasses on... and a gun.

LEE VILENSKY:
Glasses on.

    General CommentFrom the film "The American Astronaut." This is a short duet between Samuel Curtis (BNS's Cory McAbee) and The Boy Who Actually Saw a Woman's Breast (Gregory Russell Cook) after they leave Jupiter. Curtis has just given Lee Vilensky, the owner of Jupiter (Peter McRobbie) a real live girl in exchange for the Boy.

    I'm pretty sure this song is about the real live girl, "the baby in the jar with glasses on and a gun." First, she is, in fact, a baby in a jar. Second, she is cloned from Eddie, the Ceres Crossroads bartender (Bill Buell), who indeed has glasses and a gun.
