We humans aren't designed to spend our entire lives in space.
If you don't watch your diet and exercise, you can be sidelined before you know it.
Some people go crazy from staying in a closed environment.
Cosmic radiation is unforgiving, too.
Folks who can't handle it all turn right around and go home.
But there are times when sickness or injuries keep you from going back to Earth right away.
That's why the moon is like a convalescent home to folks like us who work in space.
So what it boils down to is that we humans just can't live away from the Earth.
That's just the way it is right now.
How come you're all ganging up on me.
What're you talking about?
Aren't we allowed to come visit you?
Uh, yeah, I appreciate it.
I guess this isn't gonna work.
It'll take you a week to recover?
So you're gonna end up spendingall your time off cooped up in the hospital?
Jeez, if I'd known this was gonna happen,
I would've just stayed on Seven.
You know They've been bouncing me from room to room since I got here.
But how come the ninjas have already been discharged.
With all that stuff they do, they're used to taking falls in low gravity.
Hachi, I took care of all the hospital paperwork.
And also, this week's issue of Cosmonauts.
And, worker's comp isn't gonna to cover this.
Uh? Why not?
I saved somebody.
Hachi, you got hurt while playing ninja.
Can't you shut your mouth.
It's not good to lie.
This happened to me because of those stupid neighbors of yours!
That's why I've been trying so hard to make you feel more comfortable.
Hachi, why don't you just take advantage and go back to Earth to recuperate?
Hey, that's right!
You haven't been back for over a year.
You can patch things up with your father...
Hey, give it a rest!
Everyone knows astronauts heal faster when they're cooped in space!
That's a fine attitude.
You're not getting enough physical training if you hurt your leg like that.
Who are you, old man?
I swear, kids nowadays really aren't worth their salt.
You've got it too easy.
You're used to your full pressure suits and Navstars.
Like I said, who the hell are you?
Mr. Harry Roland of room 303, ....
Yes, that's me.
Wow, I'll be damned.
I can't believe that's Harry Roland?
Do you know him, Fee?
He's an astronaut first-grade with a 20 years career.
He's one of the heroes on the first manned exploration of the asteroid belt.
That was back when you guys were kids.
Seems pretty spry for an old-timer.
What's he doing in the hospital?
Well, I think it's obvious that he didn't hurt himself playing ninja.
Stop bringing that up, damn it.
