Wildly anachronistic quote - looks malicious

Could an IMDB staff member check who submitted the quotes for "Cribb" (1980) {Waxwork} https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0550301/quotes?ref_=tt_ql_trv_4

The TV series was about two Victorian detectives working in the 1870s/80s, so the quote that refers to a space rocket and a nuclear bomb looks as if it's wildly anachronistic. There are other quotes in which the protagonist Sergeant Cribb fantasises about sex with an older woman and mentions a dildo.

All the quotes seem to have nothing to do with the TV series that I remember! Could it be that the person who submitted them has a history of submitting malicious fake information?

Without access to the episode, I cannot be certain that they are spurious, but it looks highly likely that they are. I've foudn the episode on Youtube so I'll watch it. Once I'm certain, I can easily remove them.

However I wanted someone who had access to the submission history to see who had submitted them and whether they had a history of vandalism like this.

Will, thanks. I'll check whether any of the quotes are valid ones - it would be sod's law if we threw away genuine ones along with the clearly fake ones!

Hi Martin, 

I'm pretty sure they were all fake, but let me know otherwise.
