    She was just winging it and didn’t expect such a flap over it.

    Yes; it was “The Outer Limits.” Eleventh episode of the first season (I’ve got the DVDs on my shelf.) I can’t find anything about a written SF story with a similar title, but Groff Conklin and Isaac Asimov’s “50 Short Science Fiction Tales” has a story called “The Rag Thing” by David Grinnell in which a greasy cleaning rag turns into a simple form of life (an accidentally lethal amoeba-like creature).

    Luann is just jealous—she’s the most bloodless character ever. Trust me on this . . .

    “Port” and “left” both have four letters.

    Personally, lady, I never mingle with dingles.

    There’s a story that every time Shatner botched a line on Star Trek, he’d say “Sh1t.” Then, one day as he blew it, he realized there was a fan on the set. So it came out “Shiiii . . . atner! You’ve done it again!”

    Yeah. Most sun “block” is designed to let people tan “safely.” It’s not much good when you’ve got any kind of photosensitivity problem.
