Episode Eleven « All Cleared Up
Act 5 – Back in the laboratory, JAMIE and CALISTA come rushing inside. JAMIE runs to hug JAMES and CALISTA runs to hug THE PROF. but he recoils.
THE PROF.: Alright, that’s enough, everyone calm down.
JAMES: Where’s Lisa?
CALISTA: She wouldn’t leave the dope.
THE PROF.: Foolish Whore, the police have probably caught her by now.
CALISTA: What about Jamie and me, won’t they come looking for us?
JAMES: Check it out!
JAMES grins and turns on the TV. The familiar news channel flickers on and JAMIE is astonished to see MOM-BOT standing on their house’s front porch, right next to herself JAMIE and CALISTA.
JAMIE: Hologram! But I thought it didn’t work.
THE PROF.: Mom-Bot managed to patch it into her system; the source is coming directly from her memory.
JAMIE: So I guess it’s a good thing I never returned it to you!
CALISTA: Is there anything you can’t do?!
THE PROF.: Oh believe me, there is.
JAMIE: Give it up, Calista.
CALISTA: What?! I was just complimenting the man on a job well done.
JAMES: So, how are Jamie and Calista going to get back home now?
THE PROF.: They can use the sewer tunnels.
JAMIE: Or, we could just have our sleepover here!
THE PROF.: Excuse me?!
CALISTA: Hold on, either I’m gonna have to move out or look for a new roommate.
JAMES: Hey, why don’t you move into Paolo’s old room?!
THE PROF.: Excuse me?!
JAMIE: Do you have any ice cream?
THE PROF.: Sure, do you need a kidney while you’re at it?!
JAMES: Come on, these guys have been through hell tonight, let them stay; you were gonna let me stay anyway.
JAMIE: Excuse me?!
THE PROF.: Fine; but you are not moving in here, this isn’t a motel you know!
CALISTA: We’ll see! Come on, Jamie; let’s go raid The Professor’s kitchen.
JAMIE: Yeah, I think we should leave these two alone anyway!
JAMIE and CALISTA let out a high-pitched giggle and run off.
THE PROF.: Those jars labelled ‘specimen’; feel free to eat their contents!
JAMES: I’m sorry.
THE PROF.: No, its fine, I’m used to giving into the chaos by now.
JAMES: You really did save the day tonight.
THE PROF.: Hmm, what did you call me again? MacGyver!
JAMES: No, I was wrong, you’re ten-times better than he is.
JAMES smiles at THE PROF. and begins to walk off to the kitchen.
JAMES: And you’re way cuter than Richard Dean Anderson!
THE PROF. blushes and slowly follows the others into the kitchen.
