Floor plans of fictional apartments.

The one from Friends is my favorite if only because of the mystery room.

At last, sweaters made from the dog wool.

Sure, but those who really care will take the time to make their own : "Knitting With Dog Hair: Better A Sweater From A Dog You Know and Love Than From A Sheep You'll Never Meet "

The writer's "Double ugh" comments would seem more appropriate if these people were skinning their pets to make a ushanka and matching mittens.

"Nothing weird is going to happen."

Ummm, too late.

Need 2 or 3 women for Star Trek roleplaying. No nudity, no touching. Strictly TNG era.

He has a shuttlecraft in his mom's garage and he's offering to pay the women in drug prescriptions ("I can write you a prescription for basically anything you want"). His mom will also make lunch, maybe. But "nothing weird is going to happen"...

Col. Milquetoast,

The one from Friends is my favourite if only because of the mystery room.

Wasn’t that Monica’s Closet Of Secret Shame, the one rammed with junk? Wait. Now I’m worried that I remember these things.


Julia,

Ummm, too late.

Yes, I fear that bridge has been crossed, that ship has sailed, that transporter has already malfunctioned.


rjmadden,

he’s offering to pay the women in drug prescriptions (“I can write you a prescription for basically anything you want”).

A lovely touch. Very thoughtful.

Spider + worm = spiderworm.

That's disgusting. My kids will love it.

Safer to work in a nuclear plant than a school.

And people who work in nuclear power plants don’t usually report “a climate of violence,” “malicious disruption” and damage to personal property as “part of the routine working environment.”

So there’s that.

I have a doctor's prescription pad (a long story) and I can write you a prescription for basically anything you want. The reason I need women is that the story is about getting stuck on a shuttlecraft. I can't tell you more now.

No, nothing weird about that at all. [Mind boggles]

David

No, nothing weird about that at all.

What tickles is that the looming creepiness of the scenario isn’t exactly helped by his reassurance that there will be “no nudity, no touching.” Or by his request for a photo and measurements. And amid all this, with offers of blank drug prescriptions and lunch with his mother, there’s his series-specific adamance:

STRICTLY 'THE NEXT GENERATION' ERA CHARACTERS AND COSTUMES. Last time someone tried TOS and it was a disaster.

Yes, that’s what he’s worried about.
