  • My boys and I have caught in a jar, what before now has only flashed across the night sky.

  • The future is here.

  • I will be the greatest provider electrical power in the world, better than Edison.

  • There's a contest between you.

  • This is a battle for the brightest minds of America.

  • Today the impossible becomes possible.

  • And the man that controls that current controls the future.

  • I hope you brought your checkbooks.

  • You want to be remembered, it's simple, shoot a president.

  • But if you prefer that, what I call a legacy, you leave the world a better place than you found.

  • You were building miracles out of thin air.

  • I'm working on something so new that the world would never be the same.

  • If Mr. Edison succeeds, he will set us back so far we may never recover.

  • Sometimes we have to work outside at the rules to get what's right.

  • That is how you truly win it.

  • His current kills people.

  • He's playing dirty, you can too.

  • You can't see the real force that moves things and it's not ac/dc.

  • It's not current, it's currency.

  • This is costing us a fortune.

  • Westinghouse stole from me!

  • My motor that is our future.

  • You're fired, we're never gonna be anything named Tesla ever again.

  • Our future's not gonna be paid for bricks, fully copper.

  • I had the better system Westinghouse Electric shall endure the City of Light.

  • But I built it already in my imagination.

  • It is perfect.

  • There is a possibility you'll be putting in jeopardy the lives of 28 million people.

  • Tonight things could change.

  • Shall we call for a ride?

  • Only one man would rise.

  • So, what'd you trade?

  • Invent or fix problems for idiots.

Thomas Alva Edison.
