Funny / The Dig

  • The following dialogue:
    Low: Brink, you have been dead for several hours.
    Brink: You Americans. Always exaggerating.
  • Brink's insults to the spider are priceless.
    Brink: Come here, you phlegm-carapaced slime-faced mucus-brained furry-legged abductor of luminously intelligent but pulchritudinous Earth women!
    (notices that Low hasn't moved)
    Brink: Low, you idiot! Why are you standing there?
    Low: I'm still trying to figure out what you said.
  • When first talking to the Cocytan Scientist, some of the things Low says are hysterical.
    Low: He's very tall. Or I'm very short.
    I wish I didn't keep thinking of the term "bite-size."
    Please be friendly. I hope you're friendly. I'm certainly friendly. Let's all be friends.

    Low: If all I wanted to do was stand around and shout nonsense at somebody, I could have run for Congress!
  • Boston's frustration at his predicament finally boils over in the power room:
    Low: Ten to one it's the power source to this place. All I need to do now is to find the light switch.
    Or the plug. Or the fusebox. Or whatever makes this thing work.
    An instruction manual might help!
    Maybe a map. And I could use a sandwich. And a hot jukebox and a cold beer! Or just a starship headed for home.
    <sigh> Get a grip, Boston.
