      • Goddard: What's on your mind, Radu?
        Radu: Uh, have you seen Harlan lately?
        Goddard: Not since I asked you the same question.
        Radu: Neither have I and I've been looking for him. I call that strange.
        Davenport: Hmm, I call it peaceful.

      • Davenport: Where's Mr. Band?
        Radu: I saw him about thirty minutes ago. He's busying working on a model project.
        Davenport: Yes, well I doubt that has anything to do with this becoming a "model" student.

      • Radu: (after he heard Harlan's voice) Did you hear something? I thought I did.
        Catalina: With those ears? You could probably hear a belch on Neptune. No offense.

      • Thelma: Be careful, Radu, I haven't finished repairing -
        Radu: - repairing the jumptubes yet! No kidding! Commander, have you seen - (falls in the jumptubes)
        Thelma: Oh, don't worry. He'll be back.

      • Goddard: You know, Miss Davenport, I've got a few things I've been meaning to tell you -
        Davenport: (Spits out the fudge)
        Goddard: But they can wait!

      • Radu: You laugh at the jokes. You even make some!
        Catalina: That is not true! I dare anyone to repeat a single joke I ever made about you!
        Thelma: Did you hear about the Andromedan who was so dumb, he thought light-speed was half the calories of full speed? How did the Andromedan break his neck while drinking? Somebody slammed the toilet seat. Did -
        Catalina: Okay! Okay. Just some jokes.

      • (Harlan has been mimicking Davenport's lesson)
        Davenport: It goes to the very core of our ability to journey great distances in space! After all, if there were no space travel, where would we be then?
        Catalina: Home!
        Radu: Home!
        Bova: Home!
        Rosie: Home!
        Harlan: (Stops mimicking) Home.
        Davenport: All right, true enough.

      • Catalina: The radiation level's almost off the scale! We've have a slow leak in the protomix.
        Rosie: There's gotta be some way to reverse it!
        Catalina: We could - reverse the polarities of the neutron flow?
        Thelma: That would work.
        Catalina: It could?

      • Harlan: And no one can say I didn't try to help. And I saved you, I saved you plenty of times in the past! I mean, who figured out how to steer the ship, huh? Me. And who steered us clear of those missiles? Me! It was me. And who - Who got us into this fix in the first place? Me. And I'm sorry. Okay? I'm sorry. I'm sorry!

      • Davenport: You were enjoying that entirely too much! Oh, those kids! When I get my hands on them, I'll -
        Goddard: Show them that no good dead goes unpunished? You can call me the worst teacher in the galaxy, but even I know what lessons you shouldn't teach.
        Davenport: You picked a miserable time to be right about something.

      • Rosie: It couldn't hurt! Nicer in general. Treat us -
        Davenport: As you treated me? Like the time when you remixed the atmosphere in my quarters with helium so I spoke like a duck for three days? Being nice is a two-way street! I wouldn't mind being nice, if you gave me reason to be.

      • Harlan: A mess!
        Radu: It's a great mess!
        Harlan: It's not supposed to be a mess! It's supposed to be a model of a Rigellian pyramid, and you made me wreck it!

      • Goddard: Radu? Are you OK?
        Radu: (To Thelma) I'm fine, Commander Goddard. My, what a lovely hat.

      • Radu: I could have broken my neck!
        Thelma: Broken your neck? Without a toilet seat?

      • Harlan: You know, Radu, I have been thinking about trying to be nice to you. I've got no idea why.
        Radu: Because the commander told you to?
        Harlan: OK, one idea why.

      • Goddard: (To Radu about Harlan) What, you're saying he's invisible or something?
        Catalina: Bet he doesn't make fun of Suzee now.

      • Harlan: Oh, man. Oh, man. Commander Goddard's gonna kill me. I broke the ship!

      • Thelma: (they are having problems with the ship) I have been trying to deal with it.
        Goddard: How?
        Thelma: By ignoring it and hoping the problem would go away.
        Goddard: Find another way, please.

      • Harlan: Maybe I should just talk to Suzee. One invisible friend to another.
