Astronaut Jack says at :16 "OK, that little set-up for samples". Bob at Houston says at :25 "We hope it was worth the effort"(Play-Acting in the Fake Moon-Set). Jack says at :30 "Oh it's all worth the effort, it just hurts"(Having to Lie about being on the Moon & Play-Acting & Stumbling Around).
Bob says at :33 "OK, were ready now for your Dance, don't forget your Scoop."
Astronaut Jack starts to do his pre-scripted stumbling Ballet Dance at Ballet Crater with the help of the wire-men high up in the Fake Moon Bay Studio Ceiling.
Bob at Houston says at 1:41 "Hey Gene would you help, would you go over and help Twinkle-Toes please, please."
Bob at Houston says at 1:58 "Hey Jack you might ah, worry about whether your ah, you might worry about whether your camera lens is dirty or clean Jack.....I know how you feel about it." Jack replies sarcastically, "I'm very worried about that"(Jack laughs). Bob replies "I know how you feel about it,(Astronaut Jack doesn't like wasting his time pretending to take photos in the Fake Moon Bay Studio) but you might worry about it"(At least pretending to care about making the Moon Faking look real). Jack replies "I don't have a thing to do..(Jack pretends to clean the camera)....it's clean."
Astronaut Jack says at 2:26 "I think you might be able to decipher this station Bob"(Jack doing a stumbling Ballet Dance at Ballet Crater) Bob replies at 2:34 "That's the general idea, and be advised that the switchboard here at MSC's been lit up by calls from Houston Ballet Foundation requesting your services for next season." Jack replies at 2:47 "I should hope so."
At 2:56 Astronaut Jack jumps up in the air, striking a Ballet stumbling pose and says, "Hows that?".
