[Standing in front of a hologram of the plant from EVE’s camera] Haha! Look what I got, AUTO!

[Auto has just shown the Captain directive A-113, which is a message not to return to Earth due to rising toxicity levels making life unsustainable] Now, the plant.
AUTO
No wait a minute, Computer when was the message sent out to the Axiom?
Captain
Message received in the year 2110.
Ship’s Computer
That’s… That’s nearly 700 years ago! Auto, things have changed. We’ve gotta go back.
Captain
Sir, orders are do not return to Earth.
AUTO
But life is sustainable now. Look at this plant. Green and growing. It’s living proof he was wrong.
Captain
Irrelevant, Captain.
AUTO
What? It’s completely relevant.
Captain
[moves toward the window]
Out there is our home. *HOME*, Auto. And it’s in trouble. I can’t just sit here and-and-do nothing.
Captain
[moves back toward Auto]
That’s all I’ve ever done! That’s all anyone on this blasted ship has ever done. Nothing!
Captain
On the Axiom, you will survive.
AUTO
I don’t want to survive. I want to live.
Captain
Must follow my directive.
AUTO
[groans in frustration, then turns around and notices that Auto is looming closer in the portraits of his predecessors. AUTO looms close behind him making him tighten his cap] I’m the captain of the Axiom. We are going home *today*.
Captain
[Auto advances toward him threateningly, causing the Captain to flinch]

This is called farming! You kids are gonna grow all kinds of plants! Vegetable plants, pizza plants.
Captain
[laughs]
Oh, it’s good to be home!
Captain

[M-O reverts to his box form]
