Data said, “She is coming in for a landing and she is so much cooler than Kitt form Night Rider.” Number Five said, “Yea I want to test drive that baby, she is one real tripped out machine.” C4QR said, “If I had one of them, I would be the king of the road and I would be able to get any girl or maybe even a half a dozen to sit under the poplar tree with me. I could put in my tunes and pump up the volume and have my drinks shaken and not stirred, because that is how I have been hardwired.” C4QR received a brusque response from Data who said, “Your rigorous efforts to find your special someone will always leave you feeling downtrodden, because you are not putting yourself out there, you can’t just search for women on the internet, otherwise you will end up being single forever. You will never find that truly amazing relationship, until you wake up and stop being so obstinate.”
Number Five said, “You should try to stop being so inconspicuous, or else no girl will ever notice you and it would be a good idea to put that xylophone away, as nobody wants to hear that. You are too skinny and that makes the girls think that you are dying from starvation, or emaciated. That spittle you have running from your mouth and that lisp of yours are enough to turn any girl off and make them traipse away. The way you dress with that knit sweater that is so out of style will keep any girl from wanting to cuddle with you.” C4QR said, “Thanks for that sprig of knowledge, but why don’t you tell me how you really feel?” Number Five said, “Honestly I wish you were a mirage, so I didn’t have to be embarrassed by you.”
