“Bill, so good to see you.”

“Leonard, I thought you gave up attending Star Trek conventions?”

“I can’t believe you’re even wearing the ears, Lenny.”

“And you, in your uniform, Bill, though it would look better if the jacket fit. Your stomach is bursting out and hanging over your belt. As far as the ears, they’re mine. I had them done a couple years back. If that’s all they remembered me for I figured I might as well.”

“Whatever Bill, but I’m not calling you Captain.”

“You had better, Mr. Spock. I’m in charge of this five year mission.”

“Yes sir Captain, warp speed it is.”

“Bill don’t touch that button, Bill are you listening? Biiiiiillllll…”
