* SorryToInterrupt: While being held prisoner on the Moon, Kip enters Peewee's room and finds her crying. She doesn't notice him, so he sneaks out and then starts to head back while making a lot of noise so she can hear him coming and hide the fact that she was crying.

Fortunately, they are rescued and Kip receives advanced medical treatment by the Mother Thing's people. Unfortunately, the Mother Thing's people like to [[HumanityOnTrial judge new races]] to see if it's safe to let them join galactic society. Kip finds himself called upon to [[PleadingTheHumanCase defend humanity's right to exist]] alongside a [[AllCavemenWereNeanderthals dumb Neanderthal]] and [[FantasticRacism racist Roman legionnaire]] Iunio brought millennia into the future to account for all of human history.

* {{Zeerust}}: Navigating the stars... with a slide rule. As in many of Heinlein's juveniles, the setting is a strange (to modern readers) ultramodern version of the 1950s -- live prime time TV and soda fountains in drugstores coexist with orbital space stations and interplanetary flight. [[note]]Slide rules are practically Heinlein's calling card. It'd probably be faster to list the books of his that don't have "slide rule" or "slip stick" mentioned somewhere. He used the term "slipstick" so regularly, whole generations of his fans are growing up with the erroneous notion that people who used slide rules on a daily basis actually ''called'' them that.[[/note]]
