Dr. Headphones: thanks, klok
Dr. Headphones: 5 roots? that tree won't fall over any time soon ;)
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: And while you're at it, put the Al Franken Show back on Sundance Channel. Dammit!
Bubba's Brain: root root root root klok root.
Elayne: Al's off Sundanced?
Elayne: I didn't know that. Guess that's 'cause a lot of other folks weren't watching him either. :)

Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: No, it was planned that way.
Elayne: Cat, he did a lot of radio theatre bits, not that much different from Firesign (but not as funny).
Elayne: They work okay visually, for the most part.
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: Sundance Channel wants us to beg them to bring Franken back.

Dr. Headphones: i wish i got sundance. butch cassidy i can live without though

Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: Raindrops keep falling on my head.
klokwkdog-reheated: ok, ken, i'm logging off the ssh conn.
Dexter Fong: Roger that Klok

Bubba's Brain: I couldn't wait another 6 years to make that joke.
WesternStandardTween: Boot to the head.
Merlyn: just refreshing my name...
Elayne: You know, I once referred to someone as a "boy" but I meant it as a synonym of "lad" (I said "clever boy" instead of "clever lad") and it was supposed to be a putdown but not a racist one, and he got all bent out of shape. Gah, I don't miss Usenet.

Dexter Fong: A lateral transfer
Hon. Judge Tweenus: Yeah, and we've pacified Tet.
LiliLamont: Ooh, I still have coins from NZ I could spend!
Dexter Fong: Thought it was Tut we pacified

cease: the group is called Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoios
LiliLamont: Ah. I just remember your being a little hammered and saying that.
Hon. Judge Tweenus: Roller Ball. One that a certain Las Vegas star would rather forget.
