'''Cap'n Toby''': John, it's a bubble pipe. An argument could be made it promotes ''blowing bubbles''. Look, Cap'n Toby has a pipe. He's had a pipe for 31 years. The pipe and the magic porthole routine are about the only things left from the early days.\\
'''Gillnitz''': And they're both great. Time honoured. [[RockBottom Speaking of the magic porthole routine...]]\\
'''Cap'n Toby''': Oh please.\\
'''Gillnitz''': I just have to reiterate that it doesn't make logical sense for a nuclear submarine to have a porthole, that's all. I say, lets go cutting edge, do something with holograms.
