Jim Lovell (CMP)

And do you want VERB 74 now?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Roger. Have you done the VERB 74 ENTER yet?

Jim Lovell (CMP)

No, I'm waiting for your command.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Okay. I'm sorry; you must have missed it. You can go ahead right now, Jim; we're all set.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Jim, the dump is complete. You can go ahead and do whatever you like with your computer now.

Bill Anders (LMP)

We're going to be restricted to P23 for a while.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Roger. We concur with that decision.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Oh, we've just been honored by the presence of Mr. Neil Armstrong who is now standing by the CAP COM console, alert and eager.

Jim Lovell (CMP)

Roger. Ask him how the stock market is doing.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Tears are rolling down his face.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

With the computer, we sort of got behind in our promise of music. Do you still want it?

Bill Anders (LMP)

Just so Neil doesn't accompany it.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Neil says you're in luck; he has a cold today.

(Music of “Joy to the World” and a choir singing another song)

Bill Anders (LMP)

Must be the wrong speed.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger, Mike. That's real nice, but if you don't mind, you'd better hold it off until we get this tracking test done. …

Bill Anders (LMP)

Sounds like it is being run at the wrong speed.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

It doesn't sound very good to us either.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Coming through nicely, though, Mike. You're coming through nicely, Mike; maybe you could just sing a little bit.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Yes, I'll get my harmonica.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Apollo 8, Houston. Over.

Bill Anders (LMP)

Roger, Mike. How are our temperatures looking across the service module? Could it be GO here for a shoot in another couple sets on this next start?

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Yes. I'm monitoring them, and they look real good to me, Bill. Just a second and I will check with the experts. Yes, you are just fine, Bill, on your quad temps.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Affirmative. SPS is looking good also.

Mike Collins (CAPCOM)

Roger, Bill. Because of this W-matrix thing, we would like to add some more star sightings when Jim gets through with the series that he is currently on. And I have the information relevant to them when you are ready to copy.
