Zoltar,<quoted text>General Stewart, sir. If you would do your job such as determining Federal troop strength and reporting back to General Lee, you would not have time to worry about the meaning of "minizimar".
Please allow me to help you so that you may return to performing your reponsibilities.

Be careful ! You are messin with history. If 'Ol Jeb makes it back to Lee in time, who knows how the outcome will change, and we have no modified Delorean in which to travel back in time and fix history.

History demands it.
