Charlie Isaacs Caps: S01E10 The Understudy
Frank: [to Lazar] Morning, I brought the kid. [to Charlie] Come on. [to Lazar] My mother told me unwelcome guests should never show up empty handed. Thought you could use some help with the contact dermatitis.
Lazar: Yeah, number one hazard, working with TNT.
Charlie: Number one?
Frank: So are we good for today?
Lazar: Not good, but I’ll accept your presents. The war must be won.
Frank: We take thirty-two exploding bridgewire detonators, we activate them simultaneously.
Lazar: So you want to know how to synchronise detonators.
Frank: Believe it or not, that’s the easy part. What we have to do is redirect the shockwaves from those charges into one perfectly symmetrical implosion.
Charlie: Thirty British scientists couldn’t do it in a year, they abandoned their implosion project.
Lazar: The British are quitters. Just look at the Revolutionary War, huh? [chuckles]
Frank: Drop on…three, two, one. [they drop their stones] See?
Frank: Our detonation waves are convex, they need to be concave to make implosion work.
Lazar: You want all these tiny explosions to turn themselves inside out? That’s the goal?
Lazar: Fish swim, birds fly, cows shit. Alright? They each true to its nature, an explosion goes boom. The force of energy expands.
Charlie: Right. So how do we reverse it?
Lazar: That’s simple.
Lazar: Yeah, you can’t. [laughs]
