Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum in The Fly (1986)The romantic mad scientist version: Seth Brundle telling Veronica Quaife he went through his transport device. Seth Brundle: "I missed you, tonight" Veronica Quaife: "It's still night ... I came back. You had to celebrate without me. I'm sorry." Brundle: "I went through last night." Quaife: "You went through? Without testing the baboon?" Brundle: "I was... drunk. I was a bit upset." Quaife: "You could have killed yourself."
Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Jonathan Adams, and Patricia Quinn in The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)The whacky version: Dr. Everett V. Scott: "This sonic transducer. It is - I suppose - some kind of audio vibratry physiomolecular transport device?" Brad Majors: "You mean ..." Scott: "Yes Brad! It's something we ourselves are working on for some time!" Later ... Scott: "A device which is capable to break down solid matter and then projecting it through space - and who knows, perhaps even time, itself!"
Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges in K-PAX (2001)The philosophic alien version: Prot claims he uses a beam of light to travel from his planet K-PAX to Earth Prot: "I will admit the possibility that I am Robert Porter, if you will admit the possibility that I am from K-PAX. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a beam of light to catch." Suggested by Djesika
