-->'''[=McKittrick=]''': See that sign up here? "DEFCON." That indicates our current defense condition. It should read "DEFCON 5", which means peace. It's still on 4 because of that little stunt you pulled. Actually, if we hadn't caught it in time, it might have gone to DEFCON 1. You know what that means, David?\\

'''[=McKittrick=]''': WorldWarIII.\\

-->'''My editor Philbrick weighs in''': ''"OK, people, you need to pay attention to War Games if you're going to drop the DEFCON joke. You are at war at DEFCON 1 and at peace at DEFCON 5. This DEFCON 12 he speaks of must be some higher plane of existence where even mosquitos and people live together in love and harmony.''
