  • Episode Description
  • On November 24, 1969, the Apollo 12 crew – Pete Conrad, Al Bean and Dick Gordon – returned from the moon. Certainly, this mission had a different feel to it when compared to Apollo 11. Bean recounts everything he can, including his luck in joining the crew, how he helped out when lightning struck the shuttle during launch, his favorite moments and his bad luck with cameras. According to him, though, the real thrill through it all was enjoying a close friendship with Conrad and Gordon.moreless

    • Dick Gordon: (toweling off after a shower) Damn! That shower feels good. Pete Conrad: The first time you take a shower and it doesn't feel that good is when you'll know that you're officially home from the moon.

    • Al Bean: (narrating) Neil and Buzz's ascent had knocked the crap out of their flag. They could send a man to the moon, but they couldn't think to place the flag 50 feet away from a rocket engine so it wouldn't get blown over.

    • Al Bean: (narrating) Maybe we weren't dignified enough to be heroes. It didn't matter, 'cause we were the second mission to land on the moon. History's ultimate anticlimax.

    • Pete Conrad: (just before take-off) Al Bean! You are going to the moon! Al Bean: Y'all can come along too, if you like.

    • Dick Gordon: (prior to separation of Lunar and Command modules) I guess we gotta closer her up now. I wish this son of a bitch fit three people.
