She kept quiet and let him pretend to be really impressed by Mars for her sake, and then nudged him out of the way again to adjust the telescope towards Jupiter. Her battered old telescope wasn't powerful enough to get a really good view and display all the individual bands of clouds and storms, but if they were lucky she might be able to get a view of the famous (if unimaginatively named) Great Red Spot.

"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man?

Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
