    [Sandurz and Helmet walk over]

    Sandurz:What is it Private?

    Radar Technichan: [Still through the P.A] I'm having trouble with the radar, sir!

    [Sandurz grabs the microphone the Technichan was just using]

    Sandurz: You don't need that, lieutenant. We're here. Now what is it?

    Radar Technician: [Still through the P.A] I'm having trouble with the radar, sir.

    [Helemet rips the microphone from the console and throws it aside.]

    Dark Helmet: Now what is it?!

    Radar Technician: [Normally] I'm having trouble with the radar, sir!

    Dark Helmet: What's wrong with it?!

    Radar Technician: I've lost the bleeps, I lost the sweeps, and I lost the creeps.

    Dark Helmet: The what?

    Colonel Sandurz: The what?

    Dark Helmet: And the what?

    Radar Techician: You know, the bleeps... [Makes beeping noise]... the sweeps... [Makes vibrating noise] and the creeps. [Makes squeaking noise]

    Dark Helmet: [Quietly, to Sandurz] That's not all he's lost.

    Radar Technician: Wait, sir! The radar, sir! It appears to be... [Jam starts flowing through the computer screen] jammed!

    Dark Helmet: Jammed... [Examines the jam and tastes it] Raspberry. There's only one man... [Sandurz gets out of the way of the approaching camera] ...who would dare give me the raspberry! [Pulls his mask down] Lone Starr! [Walks into the camera and collapses]
