And you are comparing it to what?

Folks, folks, folks… Dialogue is on par… Bad, bad, bad…   Vultures portending doom!


JJ is employing classic motivational theory.  Always get more out of your people by threatening harm!  Have I told you that your job is at stake???


Again, Mark, as compared to what?  You spend a lot of time in mines, do you??


Oh, Doc.  You are indomitable.  Your enthusiasm, anyway.  Never mind that you are now being falsely imprisoned by this thug with a gun…  you are fulfilling a dream that you have kept secret for years.  Glad I noticed that Mark took a flashlight in with him, otherwise I’d have to wonder (again) where all the light was coming from…
