BASIC program

I couldn't quite tell what the command on line 5 is. It looks a whole lot like "MORE", but that's not a BASIC command as far as I know. Since it's possible TBC weren't being strictly accurate here, I went ahead and put it, but I'm interested to know if others see the same thing. Also, the last line looks like it contains a "9". — It's dot com 18:21, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

That's what I see too, as best as I can tell. I'll have another look at it later, though I'm not sure if my eyes will be any more powerful then... Trey56 18:26, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

It's the best I can see too. The only alternative that comes up is "HOME" instead of "MORE", but that wouldn't really be any better? -- Mithent 19:01, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Actually, yes, that would be much better. HOME, unlike MORE, is a BASIC command, which clears the screen and is (was) often used as the first line of a program. Granted, the word is very difficult to make out on the angled screen, but I think it's much more likely to be HOME than MORE, given that the former actually makes sense as the first line of a program, and the latter doesn't. -Alun Clewe 21:09, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
That sounds convincing to me — I'll change it. Trey56 21:14, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
No doubt in my mind that that says HOME - and that makes way more sense -JamesDean
Shows how good my BASIC is that I didn't know it was a command! -- Mithent 23:57, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Shouldn't be too hard to make yourself believe it though. Wasn't CLRHOME a command in a very familiar program we use? CMD also clears the screen when in CMD (COMMAND in DOS.) ColdReactive
HOME is speficially an AppleSoft BASIC command that clears the screen. Danny Lilithborne 05:27, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Pink shirt guy really sounds like Coach Z.

Yep, he does.

Remember, it's one voice actor doing almost all of the voices. Some are going to inevitably sound similar. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 20:34, 5 May 2008 (UTC)


In the remarks section, someone noted that spaceman is pronounced, spacem'n. so why is this not reflected in the transcript? joshr915 (talk) 22:23, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

It seems that we don't usually put -m'n in the transcript, based on other examples linked off the "Man" pronounced as "m'n" page. But we could change it if it's thought to be better that way, I guess? -- Mithent 00:00, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
