Paneldemonium, Part 2
An incursion of Time Travel Week
IJD: So, do you guys like cedar too?
Kira: That was really weird. What happened, Zeke?
Zeke: Well, I think --
Marc: What are you asking him for? Doesn't my opinion matter?
Kira: Zeke's the expert.
Marc: On temporal anomalies?
Kira: On slowness.
IJD: Hey! I'm not slow. I was just interested in panels. Cedar panels.
Marc: Heh heh heh.
Zeke: Thanks...I think. I bet we're dealing with some kind of temporal inversion.
Kira: If only we had a tricorder we could be sure.
IJD: You call that a tricorder?
Kira: Put the spoon away, Marc.
Zeke: We don't need a tricorder. We're all fluent in technobabble.
Kira: You mean just make up an explanation?
IJD: Why not? That's what they do on Voyager.
Marc: I blame chronotons.
Kira: You would.
Marc: What's that supposed to mean?
Kira: I don't know. I just thought it was a snappy comeback.
Zeke: We're not focusing on the problem here: Pie. No, wait a minute....
Kira: The temporal anomaly.
Marc: What are we going to do?
Kira: Try looking for something labelled "RESET BUTTON."
IJD: That's just a figure of speech.
Zeke: There's not really such a thing as a reset button, Kira.
IJD: Just like when Zeke says "soon" -- it's not serious. Heh heh heh.
Kira: I knew that.
IJD: Come on! That was funny! I didn't even get a chuckle?
Marc: Does anyone have another plan? Preferably one that works?
Kira: Shut up.
IJD: Um...crap, I don't think you guys are hearing me.
Zeke: Marc's right. We need a plan.
IJD: If you can hear me, say "déjà vu."
Marc: As long as it doesn't involve pie.
