The ancient Greeks
often put "Nipson anomemata me monan opsin" on fountains. It translates as
"Wash the sin as well as the face." The Romans admired palindromes too, as
demonstrated by "In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni" (We enter the
circle after dark and are consumed by fire"), which was said to describe the
action of moths.
The early Christians also liked anagrams and turned "Quid
est veritas?" ("What is truth?") into "Est vir qui adest" ("It is this man
here"), and the magic square
R O T A S
O P E R A
T E N E T
A R E P O
S A T O R
("Arepo the sower holds the wheels at work") into a
Christian symbol, apparently because the letters can be rearranged into two
"Pater Noster"s with a couple of extra "A"s and "O"s.
An illegitimate palindrome::
Doctor Reubenstein was shocked and dismayed when he answered the ringing
telephone, only to hear a strange, metallic, alien voice say, "Yasec iovn
eilacilla temeg! Nartsa raehoty lnoenoh pelet gnig, nirehtde rewsnaehn ehw.
Deya! Msid! Dnadek cohssaw nietsne buerro, tcod?
(Premise for a short film, all dialog is in palindromes.)
Three characters meet and travel along our dusty U.S.
highways. Standard "road movie" stuff, convertible, diner, gas station,
existential night under the stars, etc. One is an American guy, BOB - funny.
The other is a British guy, ADAM - capable of delivering the dramatic (sorta)
lines, Shakespeare style. The other is a young woman hitchhiker, ANNA, this
creates sexual tension in the triangle.
Open on Bob changing tire along a dusty desert highway, he's
BOB: "Dammit, I'm mad!"
A well-dressed British fellow, Adam, sits relaxed in the
ADAM: "Reviled I did live, said I, as evil did I deliver."
No dialog as we see them drive off in the now fixed car down
the lonely highway. They eventually pick up a young woman (Anna)
hitch-hiking. Adam introduces himself.
ADAM: "Madam, I'm Adam"
ANNA: "Hello, I'm Anna, Anna Miolleh."
(nodding hello) BOB: "Bob."
Dialog as they drive, turning the radio to various stations.
"Yawn. Madana fan? No damn way!"
"Plan no damn Madonna LP."
"oh no, Don Ho."
"If I had a Hi-Fi."
BOB, frustrated, turns the radio off.
ANNA: "No Bob! On!"
Bob drives while Adam and Anna sit in the back seat. Bob,
excited in the driver's seat, speaks to himself.
Bob & Adam compare watches.
Adam, in the backseat, makes a move toward Anna, she pushes
him away. Bob comments from the front seat.
ANNA: "Ma is a nun, as I am."
BOB: "A slut nixes sex in Tulsa."
ANNA (to Bob, angry): "Sit on a potato pan, Otis!"
BOB: "Sex at noon taxes"
ADAM, leans back to sleep: "Panic in a Titanic... I nap." (he yawns)
ANNA (disgusted): "Yawn a more Roman way!"
They pull into a gas station/road diner populated with
various characters and a dog. They all get out of the car, Anna has only one
boot and seems perplexed. Adam comments to Bob.
ADAM: "Too bad, I hid a boot."
ANNA, from the car comments to herself about the guys.
ANNA: "Solo gigolos."
They look at the price on the gas pump.
BOB: "Never odd or even."
ANNA finds the other boot.
They get in a conversation with a cigar-smoking man
unloading golf clubs from his car.
MAN: "Cigar? Toss it in a can, it is so tragic."
BOB (commenting on golf clubs): "Golf? No sir, prefer prison flog."
They walk around the gas station and Bob bumps into a
sleeping dog that jumps and runs away when awakened. The dog stops at an old
ADAM: "Step on no pets!"
Bob reaches down to where the dog was and picks something
BOB: "God! A red nugget, a fat egg under a dog."
ADAM: "Dog as devil deified lived as God."
BOB: "He did, eh?"
Hobo (petting dog): "Is God a dog? Si!"
Bob & Adam comment about various cars with a roof racks and
BOB: "A Toyota."
Anna struts past, angry about the hidden boot, and comments
ANNA: "Yo, Bob... Mug a gumbo boy!"
As she passes by and into the diner, the two guys watch as
she checks herself out and adjusts her bra in the glass doorway.
BOB: "Tit ego, go get it!"
A cowboy tries to enter the diner, but the waitress stops
him and points to his hat.
WAITRESS: "No Stetson!"
In the diner various stuff happens as they comment on other
tables, interact with the waitress and the customers. We catch little bits
of conversation at the other tables, like the doctor (in surgical scrubs
with stethoscope) who is eating while the fat man he's with has nothing, the
3rd person at the table says:
MAN to Doctor: "Doc, note. I dissent. A fast never prevents a fatness, I
diet on cod!"
Our 3 heroes comment on other eaters.
ANNA: "Enid and Edna dine."
Two women at another table inspect a telegram.
ADAM: "Marge lets Norah see Sharon's telegram."
Waitress delivers a bowl of Chinese soup to the table.
BOB: "Won ton? Not now."
Sloppy eater gets annoyed at waitress as she looks at him
SLOPPY EATER (as a put-down to waitress): "Go hang a salami. I'm a
Screaming little kid in the background screams: "MOM!"
Waitress, thoroughly annoyed, takes soup back to kitchen.
Bartender watches her go by, offers sympathy.
BARTENDER [sotto voce]: "Stressed? No tips? Spit on
At the bar, a Martini drinker comments on his olive while
his drinking partner comments on his lager. They watch CNN on the TV above
MARTINI DRINKER: "Evil olive."
BEER DRINKER: "Lager, sir, is regal."
CNN, speaker addresses house: "Rise to vote, sir."
BEER DRINKER, to TV: "Star comedy... by democrats."
A marine butts in to the pair at the bar.
MARINE: "Yo, bottoms up! U.S. motto, boy!"
Waitress can't do the math on the cash register. Customer
ADAM: "Sums are not set as a test on Erasmus."
(NOTE - there are a ton of food palindromes, more ammunition
for bizarre waitress/menu stuff)
"No lemons, no melon."
"Desserts I stressed."
As they step back out into the parking lot, BOB blows his
nose and comments on the hanky.
BOB: "Tons o' snot!"
They drive off into the desert, and watch the sunset from
the hood of their parked convertible and the mood deteriorates into an
Edward Albee triangle of tension. The dialog is all palindromes, so it
really doesn't make any sense, but the action and staging tell of
existential angst, sexual desires and the futility of life!
BOB: "Rats live on no evil star."
ADAM: "No, I save final perusal - a sure plan, if no evasion."
ANNA: "Do geese see God?"
ADAM: "Able was I, ere I saw Elba."
BOB: "Sore was I, ere I saw Eros!"
ANNA: "Eros? Sidney, my end is sore..."
Eventually Bob & Adam duel over Anna.
ADAM: "Draw, O Caesar! Erase a coward!"
BOB (reaches into the car for a weapon, comes up with a stick with a
banana stuck onto it): "Not a banana baton!"
ADAM: "Draw! O, Coward!"
BOB: " YO! OY!"
ADAM: "Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas!"
BOB: "Dogma in my hymn? I am GOD!"
ANNA (disgusted with both of them): "O, Geronimo, no minor ego!"
(she runs off)
ADAM (trying to persuade her to him): "Flee to me, remote elf!"
BOB: "Now's evil for evil... Ah, a liver of lives won!"
ADAM: "We few..."
Film ends in a pretentious Bergman-esqe soliloquy delivered,
William Shatner, style to the stars...
ADAM: "Are we not drawn onward, we few? Drawn onward to new era?"
