A frail old man lost in space and time. They give him this name because they don't know who he is. He seems not to remember where he has come from; he is suspicious and capable of sudden malignance; he seems to have some undefined enemy; he is searching for something as well as fleeing from something. He has a "machine" which enables them to travel together through time, through space, and through matter.
TONY: What bench memo are you working on?
AMBER: Millard v. Millard. The embryonic right-to-life case. The Chief Justice gave this one to Lynch because she was on the fence. I need to make sure she’s covered in Orals.
TONY: I’ll cover you in orals.
In DARKNESS the sound of a meadowlark's song.
This is the bible I wrote for "Freaks and Geeks" before "Freaks and Geeks" was "Freaks and Geeks." Confusing? You bet! A series bible is what every respectable TV show creator writes up for his series, so that the writers you hire can get inside your head without you having to tell them everything. There are no rules for series bibles. In fact, when I decided to write one I tried to get bibles from other shows and nobody could find any to give me. So, I just put in anything and everything I thought of that could help all of us on the writing staff, as well as the production staff, make the series everything I wanted it to be at the time. As you look through the bible, you'll notice that lots of stuff changed, which means that we had such great people working on the show that many times they had better ideas about stuff than I did. And that's the way it's supposed to work. A TV show or a movie is a collaboration between many talented people who have their own areas of expertise. So, wade into the "Freaks and Geeks" bible if you dare and see our series' humble beginnings.

Did any of us really know people like that in high school?
Did any of us ever look like that in high school?
Did any of us ever have those problems in high school?
For most of us, high school was about trying to get through each day without getting beaten up or humiliated. It was about constantly being faced with evidence that contradicted the way our parents and churches told us the world was supposed to work. Life wasn't fair. People weren't that nice. Things didn't always work out for the best. And, unlike the kids on TV, we rarely if ever confided in our parents or came to them for help. We never even really bothered to confront them if we were mad at something they'd done. We just tried to get through life as best we could, usually in the face of overwhelming adult, parent and peer pressure.

MARS. She is not cute. She is sexy. Tough. Prematurely jaded.
