Lee Stegler: Okay, the secret word was Pilgrim. I, eh, I figured that out.

Rick: What's the deal, Chiz?

Chiz: We're going to send a man to the moon.

Rick: You're kidding?

Lee Stegler: A man?

Chiz: One man all the way. It's called Pilgrim.

Chiz: All right, now, listen. A week before Pilgrim goes, we send up a shelter stocked with food, oxygen, all life support systems on the same type of bird. Everything's in here. There's systems, communications, trajectories and Dunc is my backup. Now, the shelter has a flashing beacon and a radar signal. And Surveyor will probably spot it too. Now, if I don't locate it with all that, I complete a figure eight around the moon, swing back, and reenter behind a beefed up heat shield. Now, three days later I'm getting stoned on a carrier as the band plays.

Rick: Who thought it up? An LSD research team?

Mickey Stegler: Listen, I just had an idea. Rather than coming back-and-forth here all the time, I'm just going to put a trailer right here, so that I can stay in there and wait for you and I can cook breakfast and coffee and everything.

Lee Stegler: And everything?

[Kiss]

Lee Stegler: The P.I.O. men down here say you've got a great image, honey.

Mickey Stegler: Oh, don't you believe it. The American public will never forgive me for having a mother who was divorced and a father who drank too much and, dear, I'm a blonde and, believe me, blonde's have more fun.

Lee Stegler: You're the - American dream.

Mickey Stegler: Oh, brother.

Ross Duellan: Now, if you feel - that you can't work with us; then, I'll relieve you of the responsibility.

Gus: You'll relieve me of the responsibility. How you go about that? Move a pen on your T.O. chart? Write a special order? How you go about it, Ross? How do you relieve me of it? Lee's my friend. How do you relieve me of that?

Ross Duellan: Stop making friends.

Gus: Lee, you know, there can only be one first man on the moon. You don't have a reason, now. You wouldn't be a martyr - just a possible suicide.
