The support movement pull for Astronaut Charlies hidden wire harness is lost momentarily from the wire rig system high up in the ceiling of the Fake Moon-Set Studio Bay. Astronaut Charlie waits till the tension pull returns, then he moves again. Astronaut John says the wire harness that he has on, has saved his life, when he has been moving around in the Fake Moon-Set Studio.
While Astronaut Charlie reaches for the top of his backpack, He tells the ceiling stagehands to fix the pull on his wire harness at :22 Want ta, want ta pull on my twist ok,....Harness." Astronaut John replies "Better believe it, that saved my life."
After the ceiling wire harness pull returns to normal and Astronaut Charlie can move again, he says at :42 "I'm glad we didn't have an emergency,......quick release pin".
Astronaut Charlie says to Houston at :55 "Is Stu around?". Tony at Houston replies "Yea he's right here". Charlie says "If he is tell him, if he is tell him ah, 64 Charlie just popped(lost the wire pull) Mount Whitney(from the heights in the ceiling) for a minute". Tony at Houston replies "Ok we'll do that". Tony at Houston says at 1:19 "Ok evidently he knows what your talking about".
Astronaut Charlie says at 1:17 "Great coat(Wire Harness) unhung".(Unhooked From The Wire-Rig in the Ceiling)
Astronaut Charlie says at 1:22 "I thought, I wondered if I had my Harness on(Attached to the Ceiling Wire Rig), Tony."
