In honor of our new year, I present my favorite dialog from the 1984 film “2010.” These two astronauts are discussing food while eating some space rations:

Heywood Floyd: I’d love a hot dog.

Walter Curnow: Astrodome. Good hot dogs there.

Heywood Floyd: Astrodome? You can’t grow a good hot dog indoors. Yankee Stadium. September. The hot dogs have been boiling since opening day in April. Now that’s a hot dog.

Walter Curnow: The yellow mustard or the darker kind?

Heywood Floyd: The darker kind.

Walter Curnow: Very important.

Indeed.
