    • Boober: It's quiet. Maybe they've stopped trying to rescue us.
      Red: Yeah, maybe. You know, Boober, I feel kind of giddy.
      Boober: Yeah, giddy and tired. You know what that means, don't you?
      Red: We're running out of air.
      (Boober nods)
      Red: What do you think it's like to die?
      Boober: I don't know, Red. I don't think anybody does. You know, I remember this one day I was doing my laundry, and then this big soap bubble floated right up from the tub, and there it was, in front of my face, beautiful and shiny, and then it was gone.
      (Red begins to cry)
      Boober: Red, don't be sad.
      Red: I can't help it.
      Boober: It was fun while it lasted, all the good times and songs and the laughs and stuff.
      Red: You've always said you never liked the good times and songs and fun.
      Boober: Well, sometimes I liked them, but that's a secret.
      Red: (resting her head against Boober's) Oh, Boober.
      Boober: Don't go to sleep, okay, Red?
      (Red nods, and they rest their heads against each other's)

    • Gobo: (about the soup) What do you think, Mokey?
      Mokey: (Tastes it) Well, it could use a little more salt.
      Gobo: That's easy! (Dumps in a lot of salt)
      Mokey: And now it could use a little less.
      Gobo: Oh. That's a little harder.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The episode has many parallels (including the title) with the film "Marooned," which is about a desperate NASA effort to bring down a malfunctioning spacecraft before its crew's oxygen supply runs out.
