equipment he's underestimated the facility.
-He thinks he's cute, doesn't he?
-Yes, but I was mother's favourite.
-This is the last time I'll warn you.
That's what you said last time it rained,
but you turned it to 350.
Do you know what it costs
I know, Dr. Budlong. I'm very sorry,
You have my word on that, and I promise.
Don't worry. He can't go blowing up
We've got a date tonight,
happy hour at Mingles.
Mingles. You know what that means?
A veritable who's who
of secretaries and beauticians.
You look like a sensible man.
-I don't believe there's life in this room.
...it'd take 92 years to get there
and 92 years to get back.
Ninety-two years? Steve, we're late now.
Indeed. There isn't anything
out there, Dr. Mills.
Now don't you go above 300
or I'm revoking your funding.
Now that Dr. Strangelove is gone, let's go.
Mingles is at high party.
I can't tonight, Ron.
Tonight I've got another destination
Clouds of Magellan. It sounds like
some kind of woman's underwear.

Don't watch that, it won't change.
This is the one to watch.

to get out of the solar system.
That's the theory, anyway.
Tell me something I don't know.
Can't this wait? Secretaries are
The reflectors line up for 10 days
only once every 19 months.
Now, with all this rain
and lightning, it's perfect.
Perfect for men like us.
Christ! Steve, when was the last time
you went out with a woman?
January of '86. No. March of '86.
I took Dr. Elizabeth Conway
to see the Halley's Comet retrospective.
-You see it?
-Sure, a couple of times.
How can we be brothers?
We don't have a single gene in common.
-Not above 300 kilowatts.
Okay. Thank you. Have fun.
We have no time to sweep frequencies.
And it's smelly.
Great, just great.
I'm wet and smelly.
They're gonna jump all over me.
Do you guys smell fish?
-Help me rotate the dish.
That almost hit my shoe.
All the way up.
I hate this. What the hell is this thing?
Klystron tube. Potential of 400 megawatts,
at an oscillation of 60 gigahertz.
Great. Why don't we take this to Mingles?
Stupid piece of garbage.
Now all we gotta do
is harness the lightning.
Yes, it's good. Let's try for lightning.
-Is this important?
-Only if it works.
Okay, deep breath. Set your retractors.
How long is this gonna take?
Prepare to initiate the system.
