"...So the bottom line was, I said, 'How about Howitzers?' And they thought it over and they thought it over and they could not figure out how a six year old kid could operate a Howitzer, so guess what? In _Planet of the Apes_ we had them on caissons following jeeps and we had them blowing away mountain tops and we had Howitzers going all the time because the Emulative Clause stopped at a Howitzer. That's what I can tell you about the reasoning behind the networks."
