Lost in Space (1998) (part 3 of 6)

In some room that looks very similar to sickbay (some half-assed attempt to redecorate the same set, maybe?), Judy cuts Don out of his spacesuit. (How exactly are these suits put on in the first place?) The shirt he’s wearing underneath has a hole in it in just the right place for Judy to spot a huge scar on Don’s back. Apparently, it used to be a tattoo, and Don sounds a little embarrassed talking about it. (So why didn’t he get a shirt that doesn’t have a hole there?) Apparently the tattoo was of some ex-girlfriend’s name, blah blah blah, and there’s some more chemistry-free romantic banter. Will you two just kiss already?

For some reason, Will is dragging around a piece of equipment that looks suspiciously like the original Robot’s head. Penny helps him put it up on a table, and asks him to fix her wrist diary thing. Lacey Chabert says the line, “I think it broke!” very suddenly and sharply. It doesn’t sound at all like the right way to say it. Will fixes the watch in seconds, and we hear Penny’s voice saying things like “popcorn” and “kissing” and “Billy”. She says it’s a list of everything they left behind on Earth, although if it begins with things like “orchids” and “waves” that’s got to be one hell of a long list.
