Dr. Nicholas Rush was in a mood noticeably more foul than usual, and his overbearing frustration was affecting everyone on the bridge. Brody and Volker were starting to argue more than usual, Eli was trying valiantly to avoid shouting, and even Park was angry. The only one not fuming with rage, oddly enough, was Greer, who was leaned up against a wall whistling.
"Young to Rush." Rush's radio crackled, interrupting his tirade against Volker's 'idiocy'.
"What is it, Colonel?" Rush demanded.
"Please come to the Observation Deck. Quickly." Young continued.
"Can't it wait?" Rush asked.
"No, it can't. Get up here now."
"Fine, I'm on my way." Rush snapped and stood, muttering to himself the whole way. The only coherent words were, "causing such a bloody fuss!"
Everyone else breathed a collective sigh of relief at Rush's departure. A moment after he left, Brody laughed.
"Fuss, fuss…I think he likes to yell at us."
Eli grinned at the reference and continued, "Probably he means no harm." Greer continued whistling and Park turned to glare at him.
"He's just very, very short on charm." Volker chimed in. Greer kept on whistling tunelessly. Park finally snapped.
"Stop that!" She shouted. Greer ignored her.
"Eli, are there rocks ahead?" Brody asked.
"If there are, we'll all be dead." Eli replied. Greer still kept whistling. Park couldn't take it anymore.
"Stop whistling! I mean it!" Park shouted again. Eli snickered. Greer stopped whistling and a grin slowly spread across his face. He stood away from the wall and gestured to everyone in the room.
"Anybody want a peanut?" Greer offered. Eli gave up snickering and laughed out loud, as did Brody and Volker, and even Park. When Rush returned, he was at a loss to explain the sudden increase in giggling.
