Dialogue Edit

Smack to the Future Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Curious Icon There's something strange about this wormhole from another dimension.
Wiggum Icon How so?
Stephen Hawking Curious Icon Robots are emerging at a rate of ten thousand kilotonnes per hour. But the mass of the remote universes is only decreasing at a rate of one microgram per century!
Homer Angry Icon This is America, sir! I'll kindly remind you not to use the metric system unless you want your face punched off.
Stephen Hawking Icon Let's examine the robot guts more closely. Hey Sky Finger! Play with your funbots!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Lisa Confused Icon What are those things popping out between the microprocessor and the steam valve?
Stephen Hawking Icon They're chronons! The quantum of time!
Professor Frink Icon Of course, that explains everything! I'm assuming.
Stephen Hawking Intense Icon Don't you see? The robots aren't coming from another space. They're coming from another time!
Evil Homer Devious Icon Crafty!

Smack to the Future Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon Based on the polarization and general demeanor of the chronons, I deduce that these robots are invading from the future.
Lisa Smug Icon Aha! Then we've just got to wait until the robots are built, then stop them before they come!
Stephen Hawking Icon Exactly. But that might not be for hours, or even centuries.
Professor Frink Icon B'hoy! Let's use donuts to speed up time!
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon In what universe does that make even the slightest bit of sense?

End Edit

While these Alternate Homers are visiting your Springfield, keep sending them to Plunder the Future!

Smack to the Future Pt. 3 Edit

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Intense Icon Bart? Have you been shooting chronons at the black hole?
Bart Icon Probably. I shoot a lot of stuff at a lot of things.
Stephen Hawking Happy Icon This is incredible! You've opened up a gateway to the future. We need to send a scouting party through, to ascertain what fate awaits us.
Stephen Hawking Icon Professor Frink, you're not helping much around here. Lead this ragtag band of Homers on a journey of scientific exploration.
Homer Happy Icon With a side order of plundering!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Sleepy Icon And... we're back.
Stephen Hawking Icon Did you locate the future source of the robot army?
Homer Icon No, we totally forgot about that. But we sure plundered everything that wasn't nailed down!
King-Size Homer Icon They nail things down in the future because stuff tends to hover.
Lisa Alarmed Icon Wait, where's Professor Frink? He didn't come back!
Stephen Hawking Deadpan Icon He must have become stuck somewhere in the distant future. Act 3, most likely.

Smack to the Future Pt. 4 Edit

Character Dialogue
Marge Scared Icon I hate to nag, but I'm still being stabbed by robots from the future. Ow! Does anyone have a tourniquet?
Stephen Hawking Curious Icon Hmm. Maybe we can turn this time tunnel to our advantage.
Stephen Hawking Happy Icon I'll use the parts from the smashed evil robots to build GOOD robots. Then I'll send them into the future to stop the evil robots before they travel to the past!
Lisa Icon Hooray! We will have been saved!
Stephen Hawking Icon I'll just bolt these robot scraps together, like so, then program in the three laws of robotics.
Ned Shocked Icon Heavens to heckaroonie, that won't work! If you want goodness, the program you need is "GOTO 10."
Ned Icon The Ten Commandments, that is!

Smack to the Future Pt. 5 Edit

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon There, I've got all three laws of robotics programmed in.
Ned Icon Hold your horsies! I'm still sermonizing about the Ten Commandments, plus I threw in a couple extras about not coveting thy neighbor's premium items.
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon What is wrong with you people? You're prattling on while I'm trying to save your lives and your universe!
Ned Icon ...and thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's Barney's Bowlarama, and... done. Okily dokily, now you can save us.
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon The illogic of the human race never ceases to enrage me. Now gather up some chronons to propel these robots to the future!

Smack to the Future Pt. 6 Edit

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon The good robots are fully functional and ready to enter the time hole.
Herman Icon Hold on there, citizen. The evil robot militia is heavily armed with top quality pikes and daggers. And one's packing a trident.
Marge Scream Icon Ow! Ow! Ow!
Herman Icon Yeah, that guy. If we want our good, patriotic robots to stand a fighting chance, we've got to arm them with exactly identical weaponry.

Smack to the Future Pt. 7 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Stephen Hawking Icon If nobody has any further objections, I'll be saving the universe now.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon Hurry, hurry! After one final prayer.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon Oh mighty Sky Finger, cradle these robot souls in the loving bosom of your fingertip.
Stephen Hawking Icon Now?
Rev. Lovejoy Icon Amen.
Stephen Hawking Icon Now?
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon Hurry up!
Stephen Hawking Intense Icon Robots! Into the time breach!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Marge Scared Icon It didn't work! In fact, there are even more evil robots now! And they're equally well armed! Ow ow ow!
Herman Icon Was that the trident?
Marge Serious Icon No, just three ordinary javelins.

Smack to the Future Pt. 8 Edit

Character Dialogue
Lisa Confused Icon Why didn't your plan work, Professor?
Stephen Hawking Icon It appears there was a polarity error in my computation of the chronon spin matrix.
Barbarian Homer Icon Blarrrgh?
Stephen Hawking Sad Icon My army of good robots didn't go to the future... they went to the past!
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon Uh, hello? That makes no sense. If they went to the past, we would have seen them come out.
Lisa Worried Icon We did see them come out! The robots we just sent into the time hole WERE the robots that attacked us in the past!
Ned Worried Icon But the robots we built were good, God-fearing robots! What would make them turn evil?
Comic Book Guy Icon There's only one logical answer. Somebody must have sabotaged their programming. But who?

Smack to the Future Pt. 9 Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Shocked Icon Oh my God, I know who did it! It had to be Evil Homer! He's been scheming and scheming!
Homer Serious Icon Plus his eyes were darting suspiciously, and he's got the word "EVIL" right there in his name!
Evil Homer Surprised Icon What, I? How preposterous. Admittedly, I've been scheming... but about something completely unrelated, and yet to be revealed.
Homer Confused Icon Then who did it?
Lisa Curious Icon Hang on... there was someone else trying to control the robots with ten, count them, TEN commandments!
Lisa Shouting Icon It was Ned Flanders! He must have converted the robots into religious zealots, programmed to punish the sins of humanity!
Ned Sad Icon Gosh, I guess it WAS me. Well, forgive and forget, right? I believe that's in the Bible. Right after "an eye for an eye."

Smack to the Future Pt. 10 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon Kill Ned! He used love and prayer to turn the robots into murder machines!
Strongman Homer Icon I still say it was Evil Homer!
Rev. Lovejoy Surprised Icon Kill someone! Anyone!
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon Stop it! It wasn't Ned, and it wasn't Evil Homer.
Stephen Hawking Sad Icon It was... me!
Marge Surprised Icon *gasp* Why, Professor? Why did you send evil robots to attack us in the past?
Stephen Hawking Deadpan Icon Why not?
Comic Book Guy Icon Checkmate.
Stephen Hawking Annoyed Icon You people drove me insane! Everything you do and say is totally anti-science. My sympathy lies with the reasonable, rational killbots.
Robot Icon And we like Professor Hawking, because he doesn't have a weird human accent.
Homer Angry Icon You won't get away with this, Hawking! Save us, mighty Sky Finger! Smash the robots!
Stephen Hawking Icon Go ahead! I'll just use the pieces to make even more robots! That's why they'll never stop coming!
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon Curses. Unlike most time travel stories, this one has no logical flaws whatsoever. We are defeated.
Homer Furious Icon I'm not giving up that easily. Fight, everyone! Fight for my very life!

End Edit

The story will continue in the future, also known as Act Three.
