Parts: The Clonus Horror (1979) (part 2 of 7)
Bald Scientist Guy is leading George into a room with an examination table. Jameson walks in and tells George his farewell party is “step number one”, and that “step number two” is to drink a glass of an unknown liquid. Doing his best impression of Chuck Norris in Firewalker,George eagerly gulps it down without question.
Jameson then tells George that they’re going to play a game. He wants George to start at 100 and count backwards. George giddily complies, but doesn’t make it past “Ninety-five…” before immediately falling unconscious. So, either that liquid was some sort of tranquilizer, or the amount of mental exertion involved in figuring out what comes before 95 caused George to pass out on his own.
Either way, the two “scientists” lie him down on the examination table and break out some good old fashioned technobabble. Bald Scientist Guy tells Jameson that they have a “subject at standstill”, and if he’s talking about the plot of this movie, I wholeheartedly agree. Jameson then asks for the “standard density solution”, which sounds about right to me.
