Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr.: The Abductee's Survival Manual?
Lieutenant JG Bud Roberts: It's a compilation of personal accounts of actual survivors.
Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr.: Survivors of what?
Both: Alien Abductions.
Lieutenant JG Bud Roberts: Don't you believe in the possibility of life on other planets, sir?
Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr.: A life, maybe. Flying saucers stealing cows and hillbillies? I don't think so, Bud. I believe in things you can see, smell, taste, touch.
Lieutenant JG Bud Roberts: Sir, there were a rash of UFO sightings all along the coast the night that Commander Douglas disappeared.
Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr.: So now you think they were abducted by aliens?
Lieutenant JG Bud Roberts: Well, there is a theory that The Bermuda Triangle contains what's called a blue hole. It's like a space warp and the aliens use it like a portal. And sometimes they'll take humans back with them.
Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr.: Take them back for what?
Lieutenant JG Bud Roberts: Experimentation. Hybrid breeding. Things I don't even wanna think about, sir.

Lieutenant JG Bud Roberts: Power-nuts, sir.
Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr.: Power-nuts.
