    Brian Selznick quote. I like to imagine that the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and type of parts they need.

    Brian Selznick quote. The idea of going to the movies made Hugo remember something Father had once told him about going to the movies when he was just a boy, when the movies were new. Hugo's father had stepped into a dark room, and on a white screen he had seen a rocket fly right into the eye of the man in the moon. Father said he had never experienced anything like it.
