  • You joking? Deutscher, of course! Who else? Not that fool weakling Keith. We got an iron man now, a man with guts!
  • Eckels and 4 other men travel 60 million years in the past on a time safari to hunt dinosaurs. Mr. Travis, the safari guide gave simple instructions to the hunters: to stay on the path that was made for them to avoid interference with the timeline for the future. The hunters have arrived at their destination..
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Not a little thing like that! Not a butterfly!
  • TYME SEFARI INC.
  • A Tyrannosaurus Rex appears in the jungle. Eckels is both amazed and frightened by the creature that stands in front of him. The hunters fire their guns. Mr. Travis sees the fear in Eckles eyes and commands him to return to the machine to hide. In shock Eckles runs back to the machine to hide and walks off the path without realizing. Therefore angers Mr. Travis. Travis then makes Eckles dig out the bullets left behind, because they don't belong in the past.
  • NOOO!
  • NOOO! YOU MUST STAY ON THE PATH!
  • The hunters return to the present time, to find out that the future has been changed. Eckels notices the spelling of the words on the sign had changed. Out of curiosity he asked the man behind the desk who won the presidential election, and later finds out Deutscher had won instead of Keith.
