    ‘Are you hinting that I should hit the altitude thrusters?’
    ‘You might want to consider it…’

    Let’s see Agent X keep this one a secret.
    Does he have one of those mind-wiping gizmos?

    Cliff: “I assume you’re just engaged in idle chitchat again, Dr. Mel? You talk to yourself a lot, you know.”

    Dr. Evil, er, Mel: Exactly what sort of school did you learn to be an engineer?

    Cliff: School?

    I like this one: combining a little space science together with humor. It reminds me of the old DC comics I used to read. They would often put in science facts along with Superman’s or Flash’s adventures.

    That is the problem of low Earth orbit. Not totally free of the atmosphere.

    Let’s see them use the “It was a weather balloon” excuse here

    Star Trek used to horribly over-use orbital decay as a plot device—in how many episodes was the Enterprise threatened with falling out of orbit if the engines were out of commission for more than an hour or so? At the altitude of the ISS (or the RU Sirius, or the altitudes depicted in Star Trek), significant orbital decay takes months.

    Same thing with environmental systems. If they lost environmental, they started gasping for air and passing out within seconds.
    Don’t you love sci-fi?

    They never talked about that in his engineering school. Just about blowing the whistle, couplings, and such.

    Cliff: “I suppose I should have turned on the altitude boosters.”
    Dr. Mel: “Right on the money again, Captain Hindsight!”

    Yes. He has a memory wiping spray.

    And he got it from Africa…a chap named Guran gave it to him, I believe…

    Why? It’s not ending, as far as I know.
