75% of the dialogue consists of these clowns gasping and yelling "Catherine!", "Caroline!" and (slightly less), "Johnny!" and "Godo!". I came to a point where I wanted the apes to kill them just to stop the irritating noise!!!!

So ape would kill ape here.
"Yeah that was cold. Who are they? The Russian Red Guard during the bad days of WWII?"
Yeah they act so civilized, but kill their own as if in a desperate war. Whatever, lets do the chant. Ape has killed ape. Ape has killed ape. Ape has killed ape! APE HAS KILLED APE!

Right at 9:48- right when that monkey wakes up - I "swear" I heard Joel say (satirically speaking the part of the just-awakened monkey) "S#\t am I tired!"- I had to stop, go back & listen to it again to make sure, but, yeah, that's what I heard, at least 2 or 3 times. He says it sorta quiet-like; not a whisper, but in a sort of soft voice-I don't know if it was, like a "slip"(Freudian or otherwise) but it's there, unless, it only sounds like that...that word. maybe if the sound was enhanced, there'd be revealed something else said. But for now, I'm sticking by what I heard!!

Gotta love Sandy Frank’s production values. In the scene where His Excellency stops the execution of Godo and the others, an actor dubbing one of the underlings completely blows a line: “Your Excellencly.”
How much does it cost to retake a dubbed line, fer Pete’s sake?

why does the ape who hates godo turn off the electrical field before trying to shoot godo? Is there a reason other than plot convenience? It makes the monkey always carrying a screwdriver believable by comparison

Time of the Apes started out as an entire TV series broadcast in Japan (of course). Sandy Frank then edited the whole thing down to a 97-minute movie. BBI pared it down even further to make KTMA episode 17. This episode is missing at least one scene from the KTMA version, but it's honestly a little less confusing without it.

Special guest appearance by baby Eli Mallon (son of Jim?).

"Maybe an earthquake!" "Yes, but nothing will happen suddenly." Just have to say, in my experience, that's kinda what earthquakes DO. It's why scientists are trying to create some sort of early warning system for earthquakes, but to my knowledge no one's done it yet. Anyone else find that line rather hilarious?

Waiting for Godo. A play by Samuel Becket (sort of)
Act 1
A country road. A tree.
Evening.
Gebar, sitting on a low mound, is trying to take off his boot. He pulls at it with both hands, panting.
He gives up, exhausted, rests, tries again.
As before.
Enter The Minister.
GEBAR:
(giving up again). Nothing to be done.
THE MINISTER:
(advancing with short, stiff strides, legs wide apart). I'm beginning to come round to that opinion. All my life I've tried to put it from me, saying Minister, be reasonable, you haven't yet tried everything. And I resumed the struggle. (He broods, musing on the struggle. Turning to Gebar.) So there you are again.
GEBAR:
Am I?

Joel has a pretty decent baseball swing in that awesome opening host segment or they did a plethora of takes. It's harder than it looks to hit a round ball with a round bat off a robot head, but we found out Joel is a Brewers fan.

I love the "Why Doesn't Johnny Care?" host segment. The bots' spot-on imitation of a super-old-school projector is awesome, but the weird description of Johnny's dark, institutionalized world sound like something out of LOST, like a leftover Dharma Project film. Creepy and fascinating.
