A Mother’s Realm Of Fear

| Related | June 28, 2013

(My family is watching ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’. This particular episode includes a character named Barclay, who is selected as part of the away team, and must be transported during an ion storm. He has a panic attack, and refuses.)

Dad: “You know, if I recall, Doctor McCoy wasn’t too keen on being transported either.”

Me: *quoting* “I signed aboard this ship to practice medicine, not to have my atoms scattered back and forth across space by this gadget!”

Sister: “Why is Mom giving [my name] that look?”

Me: “Because she’s embarrassed that her daughter is such a Trekkie, that she can produce appropriate quotes on cue.”
