Dr. Faucet: You've got the most astounding discovery of our age, and all you want to do is set up a SIDE SHOW!!
Lazarus: Theme park! 
Dr. Faucet: Think of what we could learn about evolution...and ourselves!
Lazarus: A sideshow is in a tent! This is TASTEFUL! I bought land in JERSEY! 
Dr. Faucet: We could explore the mystery of when the human mind became sufficiently developed to be "CONSCIOUS OF SELF."
Lazarus: Why don't you just ask him? 
Dr. Faucet: Ask him?! We can't...
Lazarus: Charley, are you self-conscious? 
Charley: Well, I don't know who wouldn't be, with you two over there, whispering and pointing! 
Lazarus: Mystery solved! We open next weekend!
