I think it's great that the TP special effects wizards cooked up some
realistic cave scenes to rival the original Star Trek, Lost in Space,
and Land of the Lost. :>)

"Whoo-oop!  I'm the old original iron-jawed, brass-mounted, copper-bellied
corpse-maker from the wilds of Arkansaw!  Look at me!  I'm the man they call
Sudden Death and General Desolation!  Sired by a hurricane, dam'd by an
earthquake, half-brother to the cholera, nearly related to the small pox on
my mother's side!  Look at me!  I take nineteen alligators and a bar'l of
whisky for breakfast when I'm in robust health, and a bushel of rattlesnakes
and a dead body when I'm ailing!  I split the everlasting rocks with my glance,
and I squench the thunder when I speak!  Whoo-oop!  Stand back and give me room
according to my strength!  Blood's my natural drink, and the wails of the dying
is music to my ear!  Cast your eye on me, gentlemen!--and lay low and hold your
breath, for I'm 'bout to turn myself loose!" - Mark Twain
