Is it socially positive

Rena King:
What about it, Nicki? Is it socially positive?
Nicki Brand:
Well, I think we live in overstimulated times. We crave stimulation for its own sake. We gorge ourselves on it. We always want more, whether it's tactile, emotional or sexual. And I think that's bad.
Max Renn:
Then why did you wear that dress?
Nicki Brand:
Sorry?
Max Renn:
That dress. It's very stimulating.
[looks at Rena]

Max Renn:
And it's red. You know what Freud would've said about that dress.
Nicki Brand:
And he would've been right. I admit it. I live in a highly excited state of overstimulation.
Max Renn:
Listen, I'd really like to take you out to dinner tonight...

Transcript:
What about it, Nicki?
Is it socially positive?
Well, I think we live
in over stimulated times.
We crave stimulation
for its own sake.
We gorge ourselves on it.
We always want more, whether
it's tactile, emotional or sexual...
and I think that's bad.
Then why did you wear that dress?
- Sorry?
- That dress.
[ Chuckles ]
It’s very stimulating, and - and it's red.
You know what Freud would
have said about that dress.
And he would've been right.
I admit it.
I live in a highly excited
state of overstimulation.
Listen, I'd really like to take you
out to dinner tonight.
- Professor O'Blivion.
- [ Max ] What do you think?
Do you think erotic TV shows
and violent TV shows...
lead to desensitization...
to dehumanization?
[ Max, Nicki Murmuring ]
The television screen has become
the retina of the mind's eye.
- [ Murmuring Continues ]
- Yes.
That's why I refuse
to appear on television...
except on television.
Of course, O'Blivion is not
the name I was born with.
That's my television name.
Soon all of us
will have special names...
names designed to cause
the cathode ray tube to resonate.
- Yes.
- [ Max ] Yes, I am. Very interested.
Nicki, is Max Renn
a menace to society?
I’m not sure.
He's certainly a menace to me.
