John Glenn:
I don't want anything to put this program in a bad light. I mean, we've got the opportunity of a lifetime and I'm sorry but I am not going to stand by and let other people compromise the whole darn thing. You know and I know this could lead to something very unfortunate.


[Unsure which one says this: "What's ticking you off?"]



John Glenn:
I'm talking about the playing around that's going on. I'm talking about the young girls. I'm talking about the cookies. I'm talking about keeping our pants zipped and our wicks dry around here!



Alan Shepard:
Mr. Glenn, you are way out of line. I'd advise you not to try and foist your view of morality on anybody else in this group. Each man here has volunteered to do a job. Each man here is devoting long hours of training to prepare for it, and doing many things above and beyond the strict call of duty, such as morale tours of factories...



John Glenn:
- such as bringing girls up to your room in the middle of the night?



Alan Shepard:
- and foregoing any semblance of an orderly family life. And Mr. Glenn, as long as a man uses good sense, what he does with his zipper or his wick is his own business!



Scott Carpenter:
[Comes between Shepard and Glenn] Now hold it just a minute!

Narrator:
There was a demon that lived in the air. They said whoever challenged him would die. Their controls would freeze up, their planes would buffet wildly, and they would disintegrate. The demon lived at Mach 1 on the meter, seven hundred and fifty miles an hour, where the air could no longer move out of the way. He lived behind a barrier through which they said no man could ever pass. They called it the sound barrier.

Girl at Pancho's:
I just noticed that a fancy pilot like Slick over there doesn't have his picture on your wall. What do you have to do to get your picture up there anyway?



Pancho Barnes:
You have to die, sweetie.

[Gordo has been ordered to provide a sperm sample]



Gordon Cooper:
Yeah, but uh, nurse, how am I supposed to uh...



Nurse Murch:
The best results seem to be obtained through fantasization, accompanied by masturbation, followed by ejaculation.



Gordon Cooper:
Well, that sounds easy enough.
