Voice from yacht: So we're slingshotting-in how close to Jupiter?
Three men standing next to a bar: Seamus, Fred Bellaire, and Nelson Weatherford. Fred is very short and sits on a tall barstool.
Seamus: From Jove's center, 217,000 kilometers. From his cloud-tops, 147,000 kilometers.
Fred: Whee-ooo! That'll be a hot ride.
Three-shot of Seamus, Fred and Nelson.
Nelson: I certainly hope the shielding is up to it.
Fred: Up to it? This baby will gorge on it!
Fred: She's got one-a those new Romãozinho converters that'll charge the engine capacitors fuller 'n a vlogger at a free buffet table.
Reverse view, we see a viewscreen in which Jupiter looms large, beyond our characters.
Fred: When we pull away from Jupiter we'll be movin' like a bat outta hell.
Nelson: It's the 'hell' part I'm worried about.
