Notes & Commentary

Quotes & Caps

(Max's speech in these shows uses extreme stuttering and repetition, which I will not attempt to replicate in the transcriptions here. You can assume that any stutter noted goes on many times longer.)

  • Max: "Here on the Max-Max Headroom show, I'll be having a head to head, shoulder to shoulder, eyeball to eyeball, mascara to mascara-to mascara confrontation with Boy George. Could be messy. I don't know who's more nervous: Boy-Boy-Boy... or George."
  • Max: "Fan mail. Well, I haven't had any yet.
  • Max: "Who was it that said watching the United States is like watching an epic movie. Oscar Wilde? Woody Allen? ...M-M-Max Headroom. Just think: they've got an actor for a president, economic advisors called projectionists, even their latest defense strategy is named after a film: Star Wars. And why pick on that one? Why not something gentler, like Kramer Vs. Kramer? And of course, everywhere in the world to them is just a theater of operations... except when they're fighting in it. And then, it's a theater... of war."
