Brian: I don't know what that means but I'm pissed anyway.
Mark: Lieberman is the last name of the Connecticut Senator that Gore has chosen as his vice-presidential running mate. Geez.
Brian: Oh, that Lieberman.
Mark: IT'S LIEBERMAN FOR GOD'S SAKE. YOU REMEMBER LIEBERMAN, DON'T YOU? HE'S ONLY THE FIRST MAN TO TAKE A DUMP ON THE MOON, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! IT'S LIEBERMAN, THE GUY WHO WAS SODOMIZED BY TED KENNEDY AT THE 1987 INTERNATIONAL TRACTOR PULL CHAMPIONSHIPS. YOU KNOW... LIEBERMAN!!!
Brian: Uh...that was Chuck Grissom, Mark. Apollo 9? 1964? Not cutting you down or anything. If you don't believe me, I can find it on the net...
Mark: Chuck Grissom? If you find anything on "Chuck Grissom" and Apollo 9 in 1964, I would love to see it. Maybe you could find it on the alternate universe internet.
Brian: It was on television... Chuck blew the door too early on the lunar module and was almost stranded on the moon and then during re-entry John Glenn, Sam Peckinpah, and Chuck Grissom had to make a oxygen generator out of a juice box that caught on fire and almost burned the command module and them up.
Mark: Yeah...right... but fortunately, the Easter Bunny flew up into the stratosphere and wove a parachute out of lace doilies and silk pink ribbons for them and they landed safely just in time to be the grand marshals in Elvis's "Viva Las Vegas" parade.
Brian: It was during his "Aloha from Hawaii" special, Mark.
Don't try to explain things you don't know about, OK?
