    • Young Goddard: Wait a minute. If we were the grownups, then I must have been the commander. Harlan: Way to go, Radu. Can't keep anything to yourself! Radu: I kept your computer prank secret, didn't I? Maybe if you hadn't taken the computer off-line this probe couldn't have gotten aboard.

    • Young Goddard: Davenport, isn't this great? Young Davenport: (under her breath) I can wait. Young Goddard: What? Young Davenport: I said I can't wait! Young Goddard: No, you said it with- Young Davenport: I know perfectly well what I said, young man! Young Goddard: (to Harlan) Tell me I'll be taller than her?

    • Davenport: Catalina, what is going on here? Mr. Band. Just promise me our lives aren't in danger. Harlan: Oh, don't worry. Everybody inside the ship is safe. Davenport: Well, that's re- who's not inside the ship? (Catalina pulls up an image of Commander Goddard floating unattached in an EVA suit on the screen) It's Commander Goddard. Catalina: It was an accident. Radu: The commander was fixing the airlock. Harlan: And those two flushed him out! Catalina: It was an accident! Davenport: For heaven's sakes, do something! Harlan: We're trying. We've got a tractor beam on him. Radu: But we're not sure how it works. Catalina: And Suzee says if we're not careful, we might accidentally rip the commander into shreds. Davenport: You have got to get him back in this ship! Harlan: Okay, Miss D. If you say so. (moves a control, and the image explodes) Goddard: (comes out of jumptubes) What's all the commotion? (Davenport screams and faints) Harlan: A computer simulation of you, blowing up in space!

    • Young Goddard: Oh, so you're the one responsible for all this. Harlan: Sorry, Commander, we were just -- wait a minute! You just keep your pants on there, short stuff.

    • Young Goddard: OK, Mr. Neinthing, get ready for Seth Goddard... Commander Seth Goddard. Stardog.
