GUEST HOST: PODCASTER BRETT STILLO
Mattingly is dealing with the loss of his seat on the mission.
“Swigert,” says Mattingly, “he’ll do fine. He’s, uh, he’s strong.”
Lovell and Haise continue to say nothing.
“It’ll be a hell of a mission – – one for the books,” says Mattingly.
Lovell looks at Mattingly, but says nothing.
“You’re sure about this, Jim?” asks Mattingly. “I mean, why don’t I go upstairs and talk to Deke? I’m sure we can work this out.”
Haise looks at Lovell.
“This was my call,” explains Lovell. The words hang in the air.
Mattingly’s expression changes. Haise looks at the floor.
“Must have been a tough one,” says Mattingly.
Lovell doesn’t reply.
Mattingly stands up from his chair and walks toward the exit, then turns around.
“Look, I don’t have the measles,” says Ken. I’m not gonna GET the measles.” He walks out.
“Ken, wait up!” says Haise, following Mattingly. Lovell remains in his chair.
