    Centauri: Hello. Excuse me, son.
    Alex Rogan: Store's closed, mister.
    Centauri: I'm not here for cigarettes or bubble gum, my boy. Can you tell me the name of the person who broke the record on that game over there, and where I might find him?
    Alex Rogan: Alex Rogan, and you're lookin' at him.
    Centauri: Alex Rogan. [laughs]
    Alex Rogan: Who are you?
    Centauri: Centauri's the name. I invented Starfighter, which is why I'm here.
    Alex Rogan: It is?
    Centuari: It is. We have to talk about a matter of utmost importance [gestures toward the back seat of his car] Step into my office.
  • Centauri: The amusing thing about this is, it's all a big mistake. That particular Starfighter game was supposed to be delivered to Vegas, not some flea-speck trailer park in the middle of tumbleweeds and tarantulas. So it must be fate, destiny, blind chance, luck even, that brings us together. And as the poet said, "the rest is history."
    Alex Rogan: Where are you going? Where are you taking me?
    Centauri: I told you, I want to save it for a surprise. Hey, are you kind of kid who reads the last page of a mystery first? Who pesters the magician to tell you his tricks? Who sneaks downstairs to peek at his Christmas presents? No, of course you're not. [singsong voice] That's why I'm not gonna tell you!
    Alex Rogan: Oh, God.
    Centauri: Besides, I just love surprises, don't you?
