Once long ago - in a galaxy you're in - I recorded a video from material on the KOTOR2 Prima disc that came with specially marked version on that company's hint book. Judging by YouTube hits and comments, it's been fair popular. In the video, HK-47 says a lot of funny lines that are taken from other movies and TV shows - including Blade Runner, the Terminator movies, Red Dwarf, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy, for example. I once had a list of what lines came from where. I no longer have this list, unfortunately.

 

Here's where your help comes in.

 

After watching the video, could you quote which lines you recognize (in full) and what the source of that line was? I haven't copied down all of the lines here so you can go through the movie yourself.

If you see that someone else has posted one of the lines, obviously you can skip that particular line.

 

Once the list is complete, I'll be adding it to the movie description so all can be educated on this.

 

Thanks in advance for looking.

 

v/r,

SH

 

PS: If you wish to leave a comment on the actual YouTube movie page, could you list what your name is known as here on Deadly Stream? Thanks again!

Luckily, I found an old copy of my list online. I've updated it with character names when and where it was needed.

 

Only one quote remains.

 

Who said this?

 

"There are one-zero kinds of people. Those who understand binary and F others who understand hex.”

Post the complete list please!

 

I do know that...

The "HK50 personal black box recording, time: Unknown..." @ 1:30 and "Rude Alert" @ 1:10 is Holly from Red Dwarf

"Fact: Wearily on I go..." @ 3:20 is Marvin the Paranoid Android from Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy (not sure which book though)

The rest I had to look at the youtube page for, but that list is incomplete too.

 

 

Now you can use these samples to restore these lines into 1.8! ;)

Statement: From what I've been able to determine, the last quote is a modified version of "There are 10 kinds of people in the world ...those who understand binary and those who do not". It is a mathematical joke with numeral bases.

 

Statement: The source is called Google finding it on Wikipedia:

There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

 

This joke relies on the fact that mathematical expressions, just as expressions in natural languages, may have multiple meanings. Like other puns, the humor is derived from an ambiguous meaning; in this case, the expression 10 in the binary numeral system is equal to the decimal number two.

 

Another pun using different radices, sometimes attributed to computer scientists, asks:

 

Why do mathematicians always confuse Halloween and Christmas?

Because 31 Oct = 25 Dec.

 

The humor lies in the similarity of the abbreviation for October/Octal and December/Decimal, and the coincidence that the two representations equal the same amount (31 Octal is 3\cdot8 + 1 = 2\cdot10 + 5 = 25 Decimal).

"There are one-zero kinds of people. Those who understand binary and F others who understand hex.”

I believe this is a reference to the Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

 

"There are two kinds of people. Those who have guns, and those who dig. You dig"

 

Is just one of the "There are x kinds of people" lines in the movie, and the earliest use of it (1966).

 

and, like most of the previous movie lines it is considered a revolutionary movie in its genre.

Considering there are two droids in the scene with Hk, I'm leaning towards the math joke explanation - plus that joke is quoted entirely in it.

 

But points for enthusiasm!

The joke(s) (As there are thousands of There are two kinds of people) was a reference to the movie in the first place though..lol..
