    Rockhound: We're in segment 202, lateral grid nine, site 15H32; give or take a few yards. Captain America here blew the landing by 26 miles!
    Col. Sharp: How the hell do you know that?
    Rockhound: Because I'm a genius.
    Watts: The gauges will not read. They're all peaked like we're plugged into some magnetic field.
    Rockhound: Who on this spaceship wants to know why?
    Gruber: By all means.
    Rockhound: The reason we were shooting for grid eight was because thermo-graphics indicated that grid nine was compressed iron ferrite...which means you've landed us on a goddamn iron plate!

    Truman: It's the size of Texas, Mr. President.
    President: Dan, we didn't see this thing coming?
