    • QUOTES (1)

      • Meredith: Why do we need extra time in 2008? Well the keepers of the master clock say we need to match time to the Earth's spin, and apparently, the tides and the snow at the ice caps, the solar wind, and space dust, have slowed things down just a little bit.
        Lester: So what does this mean? Is it going to be 3, 2, 1, 1?
        Meredith: (laughs) No, it means for me an extra second of sleep!
        Lester: Now there you go!
        Meredith: I'm so excited!
