The Dark Crystal (1982) Poster

Steve Whitmire: Scientist


  • Scientist : You're next, little Podling!

    [puts Podling in chair] 

    Scientist : This won't hurt. We just want to drain your living essence. Then you can be the same as the other Podlings here, a slave.

    [turns to his assistant] 

    Scientist : Open the wall!

    [wall opens revealing fiery shaft] 

    Scientist : Now, Podling. Out there is the great shaft of the castle. Position the reflector.

    [reflector moves into position] 

    Scientist : The reflector will capture the beams of the Dark Crystal floating high above. Look into the relfector, Podling. Feel the power of the Dark Crystal!

    [the reflector shines purple light into the Podling's eyes] 

    Scientist : Mmm, yes, and now the beam will rid you of your fears... your thoughts... your vital essence.
