He speaks in reverential detail as if it’s his duty to tell Cameron, who is no doubt busy on his own irrelevant quest to find the missing tomb of Jesus, what’s on his mind. I also enjoyed his answer about how the asteroids in “Armaggedon” seem magnetically compelled by the most interesting manmade structures in the world.
