Ash: We were somewhere around the waterfall, on the edge of the software lifecycle, when the tests began to take hold. I remember saying something like:

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.

Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the software was full of what looked like huge bugs, all swooping and screeching and diving around the computer, and a voice was screaming:

Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn bugs?

Dr. Gonzo: Did you say something?

Ash: Hm? Never mind. It’s your turn to test.

Ash: No point in mentioning these bugs, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon enough.
