Brainley is working behind a large old-fashioned looking console resembling something out of ST:TOS. A large wrench sits next to him; Dobbsey looks on concernedly.

Brainley: Grumble grumble annual review grumble.

Dobbsey: That time of year again, I take it?

Zoom in. Brainley looks up slightly.

Brainley: Unfortunately. but I've got a plan.

Dobbsey:'re not going to alter the earth's orbit again, are you?

Brainley: No, of course not.

Brainley ducks back down again.

Dobbsey: Oh good.

Brainley: No, this is a localized relativistic field generator. Much better solution.
