Get 'Er Done!!

(OOC - Joint post from Lasersexpanther and Jaxx)
==============================================

Down the hall and in another room the voice of Skippy, Eve, and Holly could be heard.

Skippy: Look I am doing my best, I don't have much to work with here.

Her voice seemed to have anxiety to it.

Skippy: I get that but I have already been electrocuted twice. I don't think I will survive another.

Skippy: No...I can do it just I need time. I am trying to fix something that takes a team of highly trained professionals a week to do. I fix robot, not...this...

Skippy: Eve! Scrap bits from a drinks machine, a toaster and an old radio are not ideal parts.

Out of curiosity the crew moves to look at the open door only to see Skippy look like she is talking to herself. They are both entertained and confused by what they just saw. Skippy looked a lot like she was rehearsing a play of sorts as she seemed serious about her conversation with imaginary people se was staring at. At that point Skippy entered the room followed by Eve and they began having the same conversation only this time Holly and Eve were involved. Granted it made a lot more sense this time but it was certainly odd that Skippy had this conversation twice now.

Holly: Oh..Oh...Oh...Oooooohhhhhhh dear (spark) there goes my addition processor. Now I can't add anymore.

Eve: Fer smegging sake Skippy yer skutters are mucking about on Holly's mainframe.

Skippy: Look I am doing my best, I don't have much to work with here.

Her voice seemed to have anxiety to it. Eve seemed rather miffed especially since she almost had to kiss Bif Biggles after tricking him into fixing a lot of the ship last time. Since none of the other crew members have met Bif yet, it is mainly because he is Jaxx's alternative personality when his muscular surfer mentality is removed. At that point Jaxx turns into a super nerd who's voice resembles screeching nails on a chalkboard and his personality resembles that of a super smart, patronizing and uncharming computer in the middle of a compost heap. Eve refused to bring him back to fix the ship since he totally grossed her out. She was determined to get the anti-social Skippy to do her job right.

Holly: (spark) Auuuuuuuntie 'Em?? Is that you?

Eve: Can't you see what your short cuts are doing to Holly? We need to fix him before he gets worse!

Skippy: I get that but I have already been electrocuted twice. I don't think I will survive another.

Holly: (spark) IIIIIIIIIII...ain't got no body! Nobody cares about me. Nobody. Nobody! (song mode)

Eve: For crying out loud! Try doing it the right way.

Skippy: No...I can do it just I need time. I am trying to fix something that takes a team of highly trained professionals a week to do. I fix robot, not...this...

Holly: (spark) Oh my darling, Oh my darling, Oh my darling Clementine!

Eve: He's getting worse Skippy! Hol sounds like an overloaded TV on the forth of July! He can't keep this up!

Skippy: Eve! Scrap bits from a drinks machine, a toaster and an old radio are not ideal parts.

Eve: I know!.......But if you don't fix him I will have to use that smegging Emo gun to bring back Bif back.

Skippy: Eh?

Eve: Before you woke up Jaxx and I were attacked by a bloody Emohawk. It removed his muscular surfer charm and turned him into a super nerd who's voice resembles screeching nails on a chalkboard and his personality resembles that of a super smart and uncharming computer in the middle of a compost heap in smelly cheese sauce. Don't get me wrong I really like Jaxx, but I can't stand Bif. The guy gives me the feeling of contaminated pervy roaches crawling all over me. And if you can't fix Holly I'll have to bring him back and I will make sure you meet him as well since it will be your fault.

Holly: (Spark-Spark) Life goes on with out me! (song mode)

The crew is confused to see Skippy have the conversation twice only this time with people involved. They are not sure what to say or do.

Skippy: Fine...I am sorry... I just can't do it with what I have. Let me try...

Skippy pulled out a wire putting a bit of tape around the frayed ends. Something fizzled to life again and Holly stopped singing.

Skippy: Well it's progress... Okay.

Skippy lifted the radio up and smashed it against the floor. Pulling some bits and bobs out. Fixing a bit of tape around some of the wires to hold them in a cluster.

Eve: What is that?

Skippy: It should help fix that speech glitch.

Soldering the circuit board to everything else.

Holly: Is it Fixed?

Skippy: I can't believe that worked...

Skippy seemed reveled that the fix actually worked.

Eve smiled as she was amazed by Skippy's off the wall fix as Holly popped on the screen looking rather snazzy in a black suit.

Eve: Welcome back Hol. How are ya feeling?

Holly: Wow I am feeling rather pip pip and highly hoe.

Eve: Oh thank goodness. for a minute I was worried we would need to bring Bif back if Skippy screwed the pooch.

Holly: Oh hahahahahaha.

Eve: What's so funny?

Holly: Cause I have ten seconds left.

Eve: What? Ten seconds for what?

Suddenly the power shuts off on the whole ship and then the back up generators kick in.

Eve looks at Skippy with a pained look on her face as she can't decide on her next words.

Suddenly the crew comes in and Unn Able is holding he Emohawk gun as he follows Bif Biggles who is in high spirits.

Bif: Hello Evebabe! Didja miss me? (annoying voice)

Eve: Oh smeg.

Unn Able: I'm terrible sorry Ms. Stone. I know you said not to bring Mr. Biggles back unless it was a dire emergency with no alternatives, but as you can see we are quite a pickle.

Eve: Oh smeg.

Bif: Golly gee willerkers. Will you look at this mess? Looks like I will be getting to cash in your IOUs for some TLC Evebabe.

Eve: Skippy I blame you for this.

Skippy pulled her welding goggles down and cupped her hands over her ears.

Skippy: I blame me for this too. For the love of all that is good shut your cake hole and fix it.

Bif: Well gee no need to be so ru..

Before he could finish Skippy interrupted.

Skippy: First nobody talks like that. Secondly the back up generators are not meant to run for long, they haven't run in well and my math is bad, its but way past their expiration dates, and JUST FIX IT!

Suddenly the crew felt a flash as they found themselves moved back in time only with their memories still in tact. Bif was no longer around and Jaxx was back among the crew looking at Skippy in her work room.

Skippy suddenly burst from the room she was working in face red with anger blush. She passed the others and headed for the drive room.

Skippy: I will not be shown up by a nerd with a speech impediment! Holly full diagnostic scan, and pull up the ships replacement parts inventory, NOW!

She was in acting in charge, mostly out of rage that her future self couldn't fix the problem, if she couldn't then Skippy Prime would. It was then that she noticed all the faces looking at her.

Jaxx: Whoa.

Skippy looked at the group that blush turning into embarrassment.

Skippy: Hel..hi.. I..um... I'm Skyler Kippler but everyone on the maintenance deck calls me Skippy.

Skippy introduced herself as Holly checked what he could of his systems and pulled up the files for Skippy.

Eve then had Unn Able and Maidbot help her to make the repairs so they would not have to bring Bif back.
