Okay. Tell them we're sending them a T/M 2 cal.

Gus Grissom

A T/M 2 cal is coming.

John Young

I don't see where it says for us to do that, but I guess that's all right. I think we should have done it on the first pass.

Corn beef sandwich.

Gus Grissom

Where did that come from?

John Young

I brought it with me. Let's see how it tastes. Smells, doesn't it?

Yes, it's breaking up. I'm going to stick it in my pocket.

John Young

It was a thought, anyways.

John Young

Not a very good one.

Pretty good, though, if it would just hold together.
