Your time sheet has somehow been folded into a paper captain's hat/boat.

Dr/ F Speaks  "OK droopy drawers, do are you ready to present your new invention or suffer the consequences."  He says with a smug sense of superiority.

"Hmm, yes, I DO remember that man from Nantucket.  But it's no match for my little devilish device of doom.  Frank?"  Frank approaches a large circular object covered in foam pads and rotating knives.  "You may remember a certain fitness craze consisting of several women in a white room gyrating nonstop for 20-30 minutes at a time.  For most men, this was more of an exercise for the eyes rather than the corpulent, TV-watching frame.  To correct this imbalance of ogling versus squat thrusts, I present to you the 'Aerobislice.'  After only 30 minutes, you'll have lost all that excess weight without all the hassle of actually doing any work.  Frank, if you'd demonstrate."  Frank, who has suddenly donned a 1980s sweatband and matching spandex ensemble out of nowhere, leaps headlong into the machine singing a Corey Hart song.  The song is quickly interrupted by loud screams, as Dr. F quickly steps in front of the camera, blocking your view of the horrendous spectacle.  "Granted, it still needs a little more work...Frank, go get one of your spare heads from the closet, if you'd be so kind.  Anywho, what do you think, my little dirt bandits?"

(The Mads would have never liked your invention anyway...or admitted to it.  You have earned 2 points out of 38.)

Command not understood.

"Now, my piggly wiggly, is time to watch a short!  After that I'll give you a one day break so that you can prepare for your feature presentation."  Forrestor says.  A magic disembodied voice says "5 minutes until movie sign"

"Hmmm...yes, yes, of course!  And what do you think of Dostoyevsky's views on the nature of the human soul?"  asks Servo.
"What are you talking about?  He's just wiggling around!" says Crow.  "Look, look, 'Movie Sign' is when the Mads down there give us a movie to watch.  Usually, it's bad.  If we're lucky, it's REALLY bad.  And if you want to stay sane, you'd better come up with something to say.  Oh, feel free to check out the digs before we go in, but be careful around Gypsy.  She's normally very sweet, but we had to tell her about Richard Basehart, and she is NOT taking it well."
Bad movies?  Gypsy?  Richard Basehart?  What's going on around here?
The seemingly magic voice appears again.  "4 minutes until movie sign."

> Continue discourse on Dostoyevsky, presenting to Servo the thesis from your college essay on Notes from Underground, in which you deduced that reason has never been the ultimate guiding principle of mankind.

"I see, I see..." said Servo.

"I don't think I like your sea shanties," said Crow. "You have no concept on how to be a pirate."

The Magic Voice fills the air once again. "Three minutes until movie sign."


(Off-topic: I'd love to make them watch this short. )

(Crow already answered the question earlier; just pointing it out if you really wanted to ask it again or missed the bit where it was explained.)
