NARRATOR: One ad-hoc etymology lesson later...

KEVYN: So... the word nuke comes from "atomic nucleus." Fine.

My point is that the research pod has been completely compromised.

KEVYN: Evict the Esspees.

CINDY: If we don't allow for some electrons in that mix, the cloud may prove to be... energetic.

KEVYN: I will allow for the ash to have electrons in it.
