Episode Quotes
Sam: I got a Nobel Prize in physics and get to keep my diaper on, what’s next?
Al: You’ve leaped into the space program!
Sam: I’ve leaped into a diaper!

Al: Chimps are our closest relatives. They’re so close you could share your blood with a chimp.
Sam: I’m in the body of a chimp! That’s too close!

Sam: (narrating) Spending the night as an astro-chimp wasn’t as bad as it might seem. My bed was…firm, the food was free and the company was…more than friendly. The only thing I really needed was…a shave. Over my entire body.

Al: Oh Sam, look who’s coming to tuck you in…lucky. Boy…makes me wish I was an ape.
Sam: You’re actin’ like one!
