10:17 am
you know, i bet i can tell you exactly what happened. i wish you would. well... after major nelson phoned me, he went to sleep. but he couldn't sleep because the bottle was on his mind. the compulsion to get it back was so strong that he got up, and then either phoned you or went to your house? either way. and then you came here with him. hm. marvelous. oh, darling, however did you figure all that out? my dear, i'm a psychiatrist. amanda. but, uh... what i must learn is why this bottle means so much to major nelson. uh...well, sir, as i was saying, see, we had two bottles-- no, no, no. the truth, major healey. yes, sir. well, you see, we had the two bottles, and we tried to get-- [grunts] yes? major nelson here. darling, he's waking up. now, there's nothing to be alarmed about, major nelson.

10:24 am
we'd better make it an early one. we gotta be at the simulator tomorrow, 6:00 in the morning. i won't be there, roge. what do you mean you won't be there? well, i've just come from general peterson. i'm not in the space program anymore. [ ]
10:25 am
do you mean you are no longer an astronaut, master? that's right, jeannie. i can't believe it. oh, they can't do that to you. oh, they didn't do it. i did it. you mean you resigned? that's right. i can't believe it. why would you want to do a thing like that? look, roge, um, i'll wash up and we'll go out to dinner. i'd rather not discuss it tonight. let's not discuss the thing. let's forget the thing. i'm your best friend. you don't wanna discuss it? okay, i'll tell you what. you can just discuss the whole thing without me. you don't need me. i don't need you. major healey seemed very upset. yeah, he is a little shocked, isn't he? well... you really do not have to go back to cape kennedy, master? no, jeannie. [delighted squeal] oh, that is wonderful, master! the first thing we will do is take a trip around the world. [giggles]
10:26 am
and would you rather travel east to west or west to east? east to west... or west to east. we're going to go to columbus, ohio. what is a columbus, ohio? it's a city, jeannie. i haven't retired, you know. i've got a new job. what kind of a job? well, i'm going to head up a-- a company that makes booster rockets for our missiles. and you would rather do that and live in this columbus, ohio than be an astronaut? it's not a question of what i'd rather do. it's that i couldn't turn it down. hm. well, why not? because three senators and four generals asked me to take it. it seems that the man who was in charge retired, and there was no one else to take his place. well, if it makes you happy, it makes me happy. oh, yeah. why shouldn't i be happy? i'm gonna be vice president in charge of production. vice president? columbus, ohio. oh, i am pleased that they named a city after my friend.
10:27 am
columbus was such a nice man. [giggles] did you know that he used to get seasick? the only other man washington considered besides myself was a professor lakewood, and he turned it down because his wife wouldn't leave connecticut. he should never have been a sailor. it's the biggest break of my life. i'll have a huge salary and two secretaries, and i should be the happiest guy in the world. jeannie: good! shall we go out to dinner now, master? oh, no, thank you, jeannie. i'm not hungry. i think i'll go to bed early. oh. would you mind, please? thank you. good night.

10:28 am
yeah, it's a tie. oh, uh, congratulations. on what? oh, i just heard the news about your, uh-- about your new civilian job. oh, yeah. well, when you get a big opportunity like this, you just can't let it, uh-- slip it through your fingers. yeah, that's it. i hear you're gonna be vice president in charge of production. yeah, that's right. [sighs] ahem, roge, the reason i took the job is because-- oh. look, you don't have to explain it to me. i mean, you know, two secretaries, a big office. i mean, you'll be having a ball. yeah. yeah. well, i'll still be in the space program. that's the important thing. yeah, yeah, you, uh-. you'll be behind a desk and, uh... i'll be, uh-- be here. [ ] roge. what? i don't need this thing anymore. why don't you take it, huh? oh, yeah, well, uh... we'll probably, uh, be running in to each other all the time. i mean, there's no-- no use saying goodbye. [both laugh] sure. look, i'll probably see you then. okay.
10:29 am
roge. um...i, uh, probably will need the cord. [both laugh nervously] well... i just can't go through with it, general peterson. we've been all through this before. you don't wanna leave, and i don't want you to. but washington feels you can do a more important job for the space program by running a missile plant, and that's that! but couldn't you just tell them that-- no i can't. you heard 'em yesterday. they want you, and i'm under orders to deliver you. now, if i could find a way to keep you here, don't you think i would? yes, sir. well, i'm sorry, tony. we've both given our word, and that's final. yes, sir. oh, it's not going to be as bad as you think. you'll find out how the other half lives. a little luxury never hurt anybody. the last thing i-i need in the world is luxury. i just turned down a-- a cruise on my own yacht. what? oh, it's-- it's nothing, sir. i-isn't there a chance that you could call somebody and--? the subject is closed, tony.
10:30 am
i'm gonna miss you. i'll miss you, too, sir. and nasa. [ ] [playing "frere jacques"] fire! oh! i am so upset. you're upset? i am worried about major nelson. oh, you mean the tycoon? oh, don't worry about him. he's got it made. from now on, it's go, go, go with the martinis and the golf balls. oh, no, he is very unhappy. can you not do something? well, if we could just get him to change his mind, but-- how? how... wait a minute.
10:31 am
right. and he certainly won't be happy sitting behind a desk. ooh, that is right. well, then, why can't he see it? boy, if there's only some way we can get him to look into the future. oh, but he can. that is easy. that's easy. that-- you mean you can show him what it's like? of course. jeannie, that's wonderful. one look at his new job, he'll turn it down cold, just like that. boy, let's go and show him. very well. oh, wait a minute. wait a minute. wait. how bad is it? well, i do not know. would you like to see it? yeah, we'd better take a look at it first. no use shattering his ego too much. just, um, pick his worst day. his worst day. hey, look at that. oh! what is it? hey, how does it work? well, first you put a drachma in. oh, a drachma, yeah. you have drachmas.
