Ricky Gervais: This is what's amazing. Even though he's talking about things like MP3 players, computers, iPods, he sounds like he was in a glacier, thawed out, and sort of taught to speak.
Stephen Merchant: And we're a couple of high-school guys who found him. We're trying to ingratiate him in the gang trying to pass him off as someone from the modern day.
Karl Pilkington: But my thing with iPods is... Now do we need 'em? Know what I mean? We're living in that era now where we have invented most of the stuff that we need and now we're just messing about.
Ricky Gervais: They said that in 1900. Someone actually said everything that's to be invented has already been invented, they said that in 1900 and how wrong were they?
Karl Pilkington: No but what came out, what was invented in that year where they went, "Right that's it now."
Ricky Gervais: The 20th century. Think what happened in the 20th century.
Karl Pilkington: Go on.
Ricky Gervais: Well, planes.
Karl Pilkington: Yeah, but is that a good thing, planes and that? Do you need a plane really? Wouldn't it have been better if we all stuck where we should be instead of travelling about?
