TH: ... of all the "Horsley" science terms, "Horslo-Spectrometer" is my favorite.

RS: Okay. What else do we have the satellite doing?

JK: Spectrohorsal monitor scans current made-for-TV movies for traces of Lee Horsley.

RS: What is this one? Spectrographic analyzers scan upper atmosphere for trace elements of gases which may have originated within Lee Horsley?

SD: It's a fart joke!

RS: I can't believe we made a Lee Horsley fart joke!

TH: This is so stupid... But stupid is great! It was totally worth the trouble it took to come up with Lee Horsley.

RS: Can we get a moustache joke in?

TH: Mike, can you make the the Horsley photo infra-red?

ML: Ummm... yeah... I think so... How's this?

RS: Are colors going to show that way on the page?

SD: Can we get more contrast on the infrared Horsley?

ML: How's this...

RS: We're losing the moustache now.

TH: Look how the information superhighway has enabled us to color in Lee Horsley's moustache at the touch of a button...
