"You have a device, entirely new so far as I can judge, by which this car can leap at once into space, hold its own in any direction, and alight again upon any given spot without shock to the machine or danger to the people controlling it."

"Yes. It's a brilliant idea; I could never have conceived it."

"Sit here. Let's see what you know."
