    Was Written Badly

          Are We There Yet

          Guy Fleegman: I changed my mind, I wanna go back.

          Alexander Dane: After all the fuss you made about getting left behind?

          Guy Fleegman: Yeah, but that's when I thought I was the crewman that stays on the ship and something is up there and it kills me. But now I'm thinking I'm the guy that gets killed by some monster five minutes after we land on the planet.

          Jason Nesmith: You're not going to die on the planet, Guy.

          Guy Fleegman: I'm not? Then what's my last name?

          Jason Nesmith: It's, uh, uh -- I don't know.

          Guy Fleegman: Nobody knows. You know why? Because my character isn't important enough for a last name, because I'm gonna die five minutes in.

          Gwen DeMarco: Guy, you have a last name.

          Guy Fleegman: Do I??!! Do I??!! For all you know, I'm "Crewman #6"! Mommy! Mommy!

          Alexander Dane: Are we there yet?
