Logan's Run (1976)
Richard Jordan: Francis
Francis : Logan... you renewed!
Francis : [wondering about the Red he and Logan terminated] He showed some life in the end. Why do they run?
Francis : Aw, what the hell took you so long?
Logan : It was the debriefing, uh... it ws more complicated than usual.
Francis : Well, c'mon. Get in the water.
Logan : Francis, did you - did you ever SEE anybody renew?
Francis : Ha ha! I think you've been skulking out too much. First nursery, now silly qustions.
Logan : No, but - did you?
Francis : Did I what?
Logan : See anybody renew.
Francis : Of course!
Logan : Anybody we know?
Francis : Look, get into the water. You need it. More than I do.
Logan : Francis, I have to talk to you... Well, I'll see you.
Francis : [to Logan] Runner... you are terminated.
Francis : Sandman always renew, I know.
Logan : But, you don't know. You just assume. One for one. What everyone's been taught to believe. One for one.
Francis : Well, why not? That's exactly how everything works. It keeps everything in balance. One is terminated. One is born. It's simple, logical, perfect. Do you have a better system?
Logan : [tapping on a glass window of maternity room] Wake up.
Francis : Logan, you are here. I couldn't believe it when they told me. What are you doing?
Logan : [indicates baby] Logan 6. Well it's not everyday that they authorize a new sandman. I tell you Francis,
Logan : that's him.
Francis : Well maybe, maybe not. What does it matter? Anyway, he isn't yours anymore.
Logan : [continues tapping lightly on the glass]
Francis : All right, you want me to wake him?
[bangs loudly on the glass with his baton]
Francis : [alarms ring and lights flash]
Francis : Logan, you wonder a lot. Too much for a Sandman!
