Last Sunday, 15th of July, we were able to watch the movie D.A.R.Y.L.

It was a classic movie, though not a very classic one. I watched it back

when I was in my early secondary school days. How fast can 30 years go?


My kids were patiently watching, as, to be honest, the movie was already

slow-paced, compared to today’s very visual, fast-moving, loud and colorful

movies, even those for the kids. There’s really quite a big difference on how

movies are created then and now. They still managed to relate to some parts

here and there, keeping quiet most of the time, but laughing now and then

on some jokes thrown off.


Some lines that I caught now, which I didn’t back then:

1.       D.A.R.Y.L. – we want those acronyms, nothing else.

a.       The generals, when the boy was already showing signs of emotions, like fear

2.      This is some kind of a joke! This isn’t real!

a.       DARYL’s adoptive mother, when the adoptive parents were shown what DARYL is

3.      But why? Why all these?

a.       DARYL’s adoptive father , when the adoptive parents were shown what DARYL is

4.      The five senses, sight, sound, taste, touch, smell, the learning is very fast compared to just sitting down and loading the computer.

a.       The male doctor who created DARYL, answering the adoptive father.

5.       OK, its him.

a.       Turtle, DARYL’s best friend, when DARYL’s memory bank asked “I still don’t know what’s a hooker.”

6.      When a machine becomes human, you can’t tell the difference anymore.

a.       The lady doctor who created DARYL’s computer chip
