A Sound of Thunder (2005) (part 7 of 13)

As Ryer leaves the facility, he overhears Hatton trying to convince Agent Derris to lighten up. Derris replies that even he has his limits, and then he storms off.

Hatton tries next with Ryer, protesting that the government will take too long to figure out what went wrong. He says if the federal agents fell out a window, it would take them a week to hit the ground. Normally, I’d be inclined to agree with Hatton, but in this universe, the evidence appears to be to the contrary. The agents were on the scene minutes after the report was filed!

Ryer is convinced that something in the Eckles/Middleton jump must be responsible for their current circumstances. He takes off, saying he knows who can figure out this whole mess. Crap. Time to reintroduce Sonia Rand into the proceedings, I guess.

Most of his teaching involves computer science, but Mark also occasionally teaches mathematics and the history of science; he has also been known to offer three week courses on the worst movies ever made. Mark's bad movie obsession was kindled in the early 1980s by the Medved brothers, then fanned to full flame by late-night showings of Plan 9 from Outer Space. Who could have predicted the long term effects of satin-pajama-clad, mincing alien menace? Mark's other interests include homebrew beer and wine, and practicing and teaching martial arts.
