Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Liz and Greg are stood facing Tony.}
Liz: So, what kinds of surprises do we have in store for us this morning?
Tony: Well, for starters, you should know that it's not morning.

Panel 2

{Greg raises an eyebrow.}
Greg: What are you talking about? By my calculations, it should be about 9 AM or so.
Tony: Sure, in California. But we're not in California.

Panel 3

{Greg lowers eyebrow.}
Greg: Ohhh... Right. So what time zone do we use instead?
Tony: Well, see. That's the thing. I've placed the station in a stationary orbit between the Earth and the Sun, so the Earth is just revolving below us while we stay still.

Panel 4

{Liz and Greg move forward slightly as Tony turns around to leave.}
Liz: So what time is it?
Tony: 5:47 PM. It's always 5:47 PM. I keep a sundial in the control room to confuse the crew.
