for resources and crew.

Remember my brotherJohnny?

- Can't do it. Cannot do it.

External S.R.B.'s,

orbital system engines.

- It's just like the shuttle you flew-

- No!

- I cannot take orders from the underwear model.

- Oh, come on, now.

That wingnut washed out of NASA for

sneaking two Victoria's Secret wannabes...

into a flight simulator.

- Youthful high spirits.

- They crashed it into a wall.

A flight simulator.

When have I ever asked you to do something

you absolutely said you could not do?

Five times.

- I had it at four.

- Well, this makes five.

Attention, all personnel

Commencing launch sequence

[ Ben ]

I miss you already, Debs.

[ Man ]

Captain on the bridge!

Digital camera- $254.

Memory stick- $59.

The look on your hard-ass

former C.O.'s face...

when he finds out he's

your junior officer- priceless.

- [ Zipper Zips ]

- [ Chuckles ] Thank you. That's so sweet.

I can handle this ship.

I can even handle

Mr. Blond Ambition.

But I don't know if I should be flying

or doing Swan Lake in these suits.

Who the hell came up with these?

Victor did.

The synthetics act as a second skin,

adapting to your body's individual needs.

See, now that means it keeps

the hot stuffhot and the cool stuff cool

Wow. Fantastic.

Material made from self-regulating,

unstable molecules.

I've been working on

a formula for this.

Great minds think alike.

- Here you go, Ben.

- Thanks, sweetie.
