Enterprise “A Night in Sickbay” (part 4 of 8)
In Archer’s quarters, he bounces a volleyball off the wall, while watching a water volleyball match on a flat screen LCD monitor. This was established in prior episodes, by the way. Archer being a big water volleyball fan. I guess I can’t call it that stupid, because on Deep Space Nine, Sisko’s love of baseball was a constant motif. But… water volleyball? What the fuck?
According to the caption, it’s 10:32pm. And no, it really doesn’t matter. For some reason, this episode feels obliged to constantly tell you what time it is, even though it has no relevance to anything happening in the episode.
Archer looks over at Porthos’ empty cushion. This immediately makes him head on down to Sickbay, and he’s got a pillow under his arm and a blanket over his shoulder.
