EPISODE 1009: SOUND
(Scene opens with Mr. Wizard quickly turning down his stereo as Timmy enters the STUDY)
MR WIZARD: Oh, hello there, Timmy!
TIMMY: Afternoon, Mr. Wizard! What's that you were listening to?

EPISODE 1021: SECRETS
(Mr. Wizard enters KITCHEN holding a beaker - Johnny is seated at the table eagerly awaiting him)
JOHNNY: Hey, Mr. Wizard!
MR WIZARD: Hey there, Billy!
JOHNNY: Uh, um... I'm Johnny.
MR WIZARD: Not today you're not (firmly gripping Johnny's shoulder). Right, BILLY?!
JOHNNY: Yes sir, yes... I'm Billy... okay. Say... what's in the beaker?
MR WIZARD: Oh my, Billy, you really must try this! It's the new Pepsi! Care for a sip?
JOHNNY: But it's clear? How is that?
MR WIZARD: It's their new gimmick. It's clear soda! Its look is deceiving but it tastes amazing.
JOHNNY: Alright then, here, I'll try it out! (reaching for the beaker)
MR WIZARD: No no no no no! I'm fucking with you. This is H2SO4, more commonly known as sulfuric acid. This shit would eat you from the inside out.
JOHNNY: Haha, you old rascal, you almost got me there! What's all the acid for, Mr. Wizard?
MR WIZARD: Well, Billy, remember that cat that used to get into my tulips?

MR WIZARD: Kali ma! Kali ma shakti de!!!
(Lucy runs from KITCHEN back down HALLWAY; after she leaves,Tina sits up on the floor and laughs)

MR WIZARD: (Grabbing Nancy's shoulders and shaking her violently) We have to find doves, like, NOW! Help me quick, Nancy!
NANCY: I... Doves? What ah, um... what?! How many? Why?!
MR WIZARD: I don't know, 50 or so? I don't have time to explain, damn you! Where is your dove net?!
NANCY: Dove net? What? I don't own a dove net?!? I don't even think those exist.
MR WIZARD: (While running out of frame to the left) Agh, you're fucking useless. You're fired!
EPISODE 2018: LIGHTNING AND BATS

MR WIZARD: Jackpot...
EPISODE 2020: GRAVITY
(Tight angle shot on Mr Wizard's face; his eyes are closed as he begins to speak)
MR WIZARD: Gravity, Johnny. Gravity. Gravity is the universal attraction of all matter toward clusters of matter in greater densities and masses. We're all under the influence of gravity, Johnny. Right now as we stand here, gravity is pulling us downward, toward the greatest of dense masses in our vicinity... the planet Earth. Every second we spend on this planet, we're being cosmically yanked toward the burning, crushing, dark core of our Mother Earth... fascinating... don't you think, Johnny?
(Camera reveals Johnny is seated in a bathtub)
JOHNNY: What are you doing in here?! I'm taking a bath!
MR WIZARD: (Opening his eyes) I know you stole my Tesla coil, Johnny...
This is Sid Meier's world, I’m just building wonders in it.

Mr. Wizard had various science-based educational TV shows between 1951-1990. What he didn't have, however, was a sense of what boundaries shouldn't be crossed. Herein lie the transcripts of his unaired segments.
