DR. EVIL Well done, Mr. Powers. We're not so different, you and I. It's true, you're British, and I'm Belgian. You have a full head of hair, mine is slightly receding. You're thin, I'm about forty pounds overweight. OK, we are different, I'm not making a very good point. However, isn't it ironic, Mr. Powers, that the very things you stand for; swinging, free love, parties, distrust of authority- are all now, in the Nineties, considered to be...evil? Maybe we have more in common than you care to admit.
AUSTIN No, man, what we swingers were rebelling against were uptight squares like you, whose bag was money and world domination. We were innocent, man. If we'd known the consequences of our sexual liberation, we would have done things differently, but the spirit would have remained the same. It's freedom, man, yeah.
DR. EVIL Your freedom has cause more pain and suffering in the world than any plan I ever dreamed of. Face it, freedom failed.
AUSTIN That's why right now is a very groovy time, man. We still have freedom, but we also have responsibility.
DR. EVIL Really, there's nothing more pathetic than an aging hipster.

A LETTER READ TO THE DRAFT BOARD.
Throughout all of my life I have been learning and living by a love for people. I have grown to believe and depend upon a way of life, which has been created by my own life up till now. This way of life is also a reason for my existence. I am living because I have a reason to live, a job to do, a purpose in life. This purpose is to love people, and work with people so that we may all lead better lives, so that we can all love each other, so that we can learn from each other, and create a world where people do not grow hungry, where men are really free and where men are not hampered by fear, ignorance and war.
I do not believe that war is a means to attain good, nor that it creates love or respect for something good. I do not believe that today, anyone can win a war. Everyone involved can only lose. We can only defeat our own purpose.
There are many people all over the world that feel like I do. They are of all races and of all religions, and in many cases a God is part of their belief.
My God is the love that people have for one another and this love is what I have devoted my life to, I want to see it grow until all war, hatred, fear, and ignorance have disappeared from the earth. By going to war I am going against my basis for living. This is why I can not go to war.
