Karra: two people walking down the street, two young people, a male and a female and they're walking down the street and they're very much in the bloom of first love. And the guy turns around, this is a sixth dimensional joke as well, turns around to his first love and goes, "Honey, marry me." And she turns around and looks back and she goes, "but darling, we are married." Hmm, okay let me explain that.

(Everyone laughs.)

Karra: the way it works is that they are experiencing both the now......he's experiencing the now and she's experiencing the past where they were and he wants the now you see?

Russ: I can see where you need to be sixth dimensional to really be able to really pick that one up on the first part.

Karra: yeah it's a mind joke.

Russ: hmmm right. Best told telepathically probably too.

Karra: yes, it's hard sometimes to tell some of our jokes orally. Here's an oral mountain joke. The Sage is sitting on the top of the mountain and the devotee climbs up and says, "Oh wise one, how do you get to be so wise?" And the wise one stands up, lifts up the back of his robe, pulls down his underwear and says, "Look at the calluses." (Skip chuckles.) Skip got that one. It's a lot of hard work to be wise. Russ, you didn't get it did you?

Russ: I did, got it from let's see, sitting around a lot thinking?

Karra: he's got it hasn't he? My.

Russ: just thinking.

Skip: oh golly, anyhow......

Karra: uh-huh.

Skip: how's everything going with you?

Karra: it's going well, it's going well.

Skip: how's your children?

Karra: the boys are doing well, Klarra's being a typical young girl. I've been pretty busy with things going on. Certain things, you know Lyka's platoon has left and we've got a replacement platoon. We have them here, we are working with them. There's quite a few individuals that are not very well. It's a sad thing. 
So they party a lot, which means that a bunch of soldiers partying, I have do a lot of medical work afterwards which is good for them because they're letting off steam. 

(They are back from a firefight on a 3rd dimensional planet.) 

Karra: how is your work going?

Skip: I'm sorry, I just.......

Karra: how is your work going?

Skip: oh, too much of it, my hours aren't long enough.

Karra: join the club, join the club, I do know what you mean.

Russ: I have never seen you down in the med lab as much as I have lately.

Karra: well there's a lot of work going on, as I just stated that well........

Skip: I don't have enough days in the week or enough hours in the day.

Karra: tell me about it.

Skip: my goodness gracious.

Karra: I got called the other morning at 2 o'clock in the morning, it wasn't a medical emergency, it was one of the soldiers wanted somebody to talk to and I happened to be the first person that he thought of calling so of course he called me. I go down to the med lab and he's climbing up the wall having serious psychological problems so I had to talk to him and talk him down and get him relaxed and sit him back down and get him straight so that we could do some work on him. He had taken off some of his bandages unfortunately.

Skip: uh-huh.

Karra: he had a serious infection as well which is why he was tweaking out.

Skip: hmm, and they make you do it.

Karra: oh yes certainly.

Russ: you broken any hearts among that group yet?

Karra: quite a few unfortunately.

Russ: I can well imagine darling. Fall in love with the nurse syndrome?

Karra: it's....it's prevalent.

Russ: I can well imagine, especially with such a lovely nurse such as yourself.

Karra: I have six current guys that want to be the father of my children.

(Everyone laughs)

Karra: it's quite funny actually, especially how I have to turn them down.

Skip: oh golly. Yeah in fact, that's why I'm here tonight.

Karra: oh.

Skip: a gentleman called me last night and wants me to build an extension on his building.

Karra: oh really?

Skip: and I've got a lawn to mow and I'm pulling guard every night five days a week and working 10 hours a day and running out of time.

Russ: wow.

Karra: uh-huh.

Skip: and I thought I'd just stop by and say hello.

Karra: hello.

Skip: hello.

Karra: hello. Okay, as Skip, I get the feeling that you don't have as much time as you would like correct?

Skip: no, there just isn't enough hours.

Karra: okay, I'll tell you what we'll do. Let me quickly consult with Omal, I will put Tia back on temporarily and we'll see how we can go, okay?

Skip: okay.
