Daniel has a problem

Locker Room:

"Oh-oh. Ja-ack, could you give me a ride home, please? I seem to have mislaid my car keys."


"Erm, Jack."

"What now?"

"Could I stay over at your place? I seem to have lost my apartment keys too..."

"So where did you have them last?"

"Um... I remember I had them with me at the temple of Astarte because they slipped out of my pocket when I was wriggling through into the inner chamber."

"The Temple of a Smartie? The one that's 25 kliks from the 'Gate?"

"'S okay, I heard them clatter on the flagstones so I retrieved them and put them back in my pocket."

"Which pocket, Daniel?"

"This one— Oops."


"There's a hole..."

"Great! So they're somewhere between here and the other side of the galaxy?"

"Um, looks like it."

"Oh, for crying out loud!"


Driving Home:

"Y' know Jack, we're going to have to think up another reason for me staying at your house."

"Why? It's worked well enough before."

"I know, but that's the thirty-fourth set of keys I've 'lost' off-world..."

Fizz... Ting!
