And now for something completely different

Eddie Izzard: We've explored space, but we haven't drilled down. You all remember Journey to the Center of the Earth. Why don't we just drill down to the center and see the...what's it called?
Guy: Magma.
Eddie Izzard: Yeah, we'll get a heat resistant camera and we'll see the magma. And they'll make a documentary--
Guy: It wouldn't work.
Eddie Izzard: Eh?
Guy: The density would be too intense.
Eddie Izzard: No, we would take the rocks out behind us--
Guy: No, the air would be too dense. As you approach the center of the earth, the density of the air increases.
Eddie Izzard: But what if you took the rocks out?
Guy: No, the air would still be too dense.
Eddie Izzard: Oh, well I guess you would know better than I. You must be some sort of scientist?
Guy: Actually, I'm an actor...but I took science class.
