Garrison Keillor: Where does talent come from? When you were a kid, people thought it was something you either had or you didn't have -- they referred to it as "God-given talent" -- but now we know much more about talent and we're able to implant it through brain surgery.

Tim Russell: (CLINK OF SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS, VENTILATOR) Looking for the talent cortex -- the rhythm ganglion -- oh, there it is.

Sue Scott: You sure?

TR: Isn't that the right side?

SS: No, I think it's here. That's the libido. You want the talent cortex-- here--


SS: What's wrong?

TR: I gotta get part of the whatchamacallit too. And put in the rhythm genes--

SS: But this guy wanted to be a singer-songwriter--

TR: So I shouldn't put in the rhythm--?

SS: Not that much.

TR: He ought to try out for a show or something. He's got the talent.

SS: First, they have to do something about him scratching his head with his foot.

TR: I noticed that, I didn't want to say anything about it.

GK: Every year, we're learning more and more about the human brain, and someday talent may be available to you. Ask your brain surgeon. A message from O. B.S. The Organization of Brain Surgeons.
