Freeman Lowell:
It calls back a time when there were flowers all over the Earth... and there were valleys. And there were plains of tall green grass that you could lie down in - you could go to sleep in. And there were blue skies, and there was fresh air... and there were things growing all over the place, not just in some domed enclosures blasted some millions of miles out in to space.

Transcript:
And it has a smell!
It calls back a time when there
were flowers all over the Earth!
And there were valleys!
And there were plains of tall, green grass
that you could lie down in,
that you could go to sleep in!
And there were blue skies,
and there was fresh air!
And there were things
growing all over the place,
not just in domed enclosures blasted
some millions of miles out into space!
Look at that stuff.
How can you guys sit there
and really say anything to me about this.
Look at this crap!
Look at that!
Dried, synthetic crap!
And you've become so dependent on it
that I bet you can't live without it.
Why would we want to, Lowell?
Don't you realise how pitiful that is,
what you just asked me?
On Earth, everywhere you go,
the temperature is 75 degrees.
Everything is the same.
All the people are exactly the same.
What kind of life is that?
If it's so rotten,
why do you want to go back?
Because it's not too late
to change it.
What do you want, Lowell?
There's hardly any more disease.
There's no more poverty.
Nobody's out of a job.
That's right.
Every time we have the argument,
you give me the same three
answers all the time.
The same thing.
"Well, everybody has a job."
That's always the last one.
But you know what else
there's no more of, my friend?
