Alpha Geek: Push this slider on the left to increase throttle, then tip it to steer left and right or up and down.

Bertha: That’s pretty neat.

Alpha Geek: “Pretty neat?” Look at the level of detail in the graphics!

Bertha: I’m not quite sure what to do with it.

Alpha Geek: Everybody says they’re not sure what to do with it. I don’t understand why people aren’t more impressed that I have a fully-functioning flight simulator on my phone.

Bertha: How do I go faster?

Alpha Geek: Dive.

Bertha: Wheeee!

Alpha Geek: And it’s a good flight simulator. The physics are very realistic.

Bertha: I just did a loop-the-loop!

Alpha Geek: In a Cessna 172?! How did you do that without crashing?

Bertha: Maybe not completely realistic.

The Director cracked up.
