(Mike and Tom are standing back-to-back)
Tom: Well, I'm sorry, Mike.
Mike: Well, there! You just did it *again*!
Tom: What the-- oh, GOD.
Mike (To Cambot): Hi everyone, welcome to the Satellite of Love. Servo and I were just talking--
Tom: Look. I didn't mean to turn you on, and I'm really sorry.

Tom: CROW!
Crow: Oh, *no!* Did I just turn you on again?
Tom: Yes... you *know* you did. Geez--
Crow: I am sorry. I tried NOT to turn you on, but I guess I unintentionally did.

Crow and Tom: MIKE!?
Mike: Did I!?

Tom: Well, that's nice. (Servo goes on, but is largely inaudible. All of the following overlaps.)
Mike (to Crow): Well you turned me on--
Crow: --I did not--
Mike: --Before he--
Crow: --It's your imagination!
Mike: Yes, you did! You turned me on--
