Ready Room. T'Pol reports that the engine will be ready in a few weeks, but Quantum tells her that won't be soon enough. The party barf is interfering with the ship's systems in a majorly magnetic way, and in a few days every system on the ship will be offline. Quantum adds, "If we don't make it out of here by then [EXTREME CLOSE-UP], we never will." The music literally goes, "Duh, duh, DUH!" Not "Dun, dun, DUUUN!" Just "Duh, duh, DUH!" All the same chord, just increased volume. It was very eighties. I kind of liked it.
Mess Hall. Mozzarella Teen has become (thank god!) Mozzarella Trip. Sad, I didn't get to use "Mozzarella Man." Reed walks in.
Ace: "Do you remember him from Buffy? He was in 'Helpless.'"
Sep: "I have no idea what you are talking about -- it's not genetically encoded into my DNA."
Reed notes that Mozzarella Trip's eating Key Lime Pie. "I suddenly remembered that it's my favorite dessert -- now I know why," Mozzarella Trip says. Wait, I thought his favorite dessert was pee-can pahye. You're not Trip -- you're a clone! It looks like he's drinking lemonade with his key lime pie, which makes my entire body pucker just thinking about it. Reed asks if "these memories just come to [him]," and Mozzarella Trip says that the older he gets, the more he remembers. He half-explains, "It's like I lived this whole other life, I can't explain it." Well, that's okay, because neither can the writers. Mozzarella Trip asks if they can redirect the phase cannons to fire back onto the hull. Reed thinks so, and asks why. Mozzarella Trip says he wants clean off enough party barf to open the launchbay doors. Reed doesn't see where he's going with this. Mozzarella Trip explains that since they just need enough momentum to get out of the Orange Crush, the sh'pods could tow the ship out. Reed doesn't think they could generate enough thrust to get clear of the field. "Leave that to me," Mozzarella Trip says, handing over an e-pad. Reed looks skeptical but amused. That sort of sums up how I feel about this entire episode.
