[On the satellite:]
TOM & CROW: [moaning] Oh, oh, aww...
CROW: You know, aside from the fact that I'll never again
experience joy in my life, I don't think Red Zone Cuba had any kind
of negative effect on me.
MIKE: Yeah, even being Carol Channing didn't shield me from the
effects of this one.
TOM: Oh, hey, I know what we can do to cheer ourselves up!
TOM: Let's sing us a bouncy upbeat song! Okay?
CROW: Hey! Okay! Great idea!
TOM: Hit it, Cambot!
[Tom and Crow laugh pathetically, then start singing:]
TOM: Oh, whenever I want to cry and bawl
Because I'm feeling sad,
I think of ironing boards and drywall
And then I don't feel so bad!
CROW: Whenever I'm feeling down and blue
And sorry for myself,
I get some staples and some glue
And I'm happy as an elf!
MIKE: Whenever I start to mope and pout
And there's nothing left in my soul,
I check the toilet paper and if we're out
I buy another roll!
GYPSY: Have you ever touched a Post-it Note?
Have you ever looked at boots?
Have you ever sat down in a chair?
Have you ever used a paper clip?
CROW: So if you listen to our advice
TOM: And you wanna feel terrific,
GYPSY: Do things that make you feel nice
MIKE: I wish we could be more specific.
