Part 3 of 3
The Astronauts in the 'Challenger' Lunar Module & the Astronaut who is pretending to be in the 'America' Command Module, begin to lose their patience.
The Stagehands in the Ceiling of the Moon-Set Studio, are having Technical Problems Producing the Fake Flight Takeoff of the Lunar Module.
Houston says at :03 "America we see your cabin (pressure) at 5.5", America Command Module Astronaut replies "OK, thank you". Then the CM Astronaut says at :22 "Directorial too slow"
The Challenger LM Astronaut says at :29 "Houston the decent bands are coming off", Houston replies "Roger".
Then Houston says to the America CM Astronaut at :40 "America looks like out there your maneuverings stopped, maybe you hit the stick". The America CM Astronaut is not very impressed with the badly timed humor and replies with anger at the TV production holdup, at :53 "Go around to suit you F*cks, this things awful F*cked"
At 1:15, Houston gives the all go, "Challenger were recommending pings, direct rendezvous", the LM Astronaut replies, "Roger Gord, I'll understand pings, direct rendezvous for Challenger"
