Quote #10

"No, no! Stop! Hold everything! You there! Mike Teavee! Stand back! You're too close to the camera! There are dangerous rays coming out of that thing!" (27.17)

Does Mike Teavee care about dangerous rays? Of course not. After all, television has made his brain "AS SOFT AS CHEESE" (27.77). Any kid with his wits about him probably wouldn't go near a camera emitting dangerous rays.
