LIU Atlas - Popina's Diner
There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Welcome to LIU Atlas.
About this creation
LIU Atlas - Popina’s Diner



The Ludgonian Industrial Union's galaxy contains billions of stars and billions of planets. Unfortunately, most residents of the LIU could only name a handful of these worlds. In order to improve astronomy grades across the LIU, TV2 has started a new program called LIU Atlas. Follow our host, Terrance McDoogal, as he takes you on a tour across the LIU and some of its more obscure worlds.

Note: This episode is presented in full screen. The corresponding dialogue is underneath each photo.

Onboard Doog's ship, the Magellan:

Doog: “Whew! I wouldn’t go in there for a few hours. All this processed food is killing my stomach. It wasn’t very pretty.”
Mike: “Yeah, well, it didn’t sound very pretty either. You could have ditched the microphone before you went to the bathroom. You do know that your mic feeds directly into my integrated headset?”
Doog: “Oh…sorry…I almost forget it’s in my hand sometimes. So, what are you doing? Want to pick on Oldie or something?”
Mike: “Nah, not right now. I’ve come across some problems while planning the route to the Saxa Asteroid Belt.”
Doog: “What kind of problems?”
Mike: “Well, I’ve been crunching the numbers, and it appears we don’t have enough fuel to make it all the way there. We’re going to have to make a pit stop. I seriously doubt we’ll make it to Saxa on time.”
Doog: “Doesn’t sound like a problem to me. The longer it takes to get there, the longer I don’t have to do any work. Besides, fueling up won’t take too long. Heck, while we’re there, we could get a bite to eat or something. It’ll give us a break from all this processed junk.”




Oldie: “Ooh! Ooh! Did I hear you say we’re making a food stop?!?”
Doog: “Uh, Oldie. You forgot to wear pants again…”
Oldie: “Huh? Oh, I suppose I did. I knew I forgot something. Oh well. So, are we getting some food or what?”
Doog: “Yeah, I think that’s the plan. Mike, see anything close by?”
Mike: “Hmm, let’s see. Well, there’s a small space station about two parsecs from here. It says it has fuel, lodging, and a few restaurants. One of the restaurants, Popina’s Diner, received two stars from the health inspector…that’s better than our usual eateries.”
Doog: “Popina’s Diner it is!”




Doog: “Well folks, we’ve decided to make an unscheduled stop at a local space station in order to fuel up the Magellan and grab a bite to eat. We decided to bring the hover cam along with us, maybe get some extra footage for the Season 4 DVD. Besides, you never know what you’ll find on these backwoods space stations. It looks like the fueling stations are on the lower decks. Hugo’s securing us docking rights, and then we’ll make our landing.”




Doog: “Geez, 3.09 credits per charging minute. How’s the little man supposed to survive?”
Mike: “Yeah, no kidding. This is going to eat into our budget big time. Maybe we should hurry up and eat while we still have some credits on the account.”
Doog: “Good call. Let’s go.”




Doog: “Well Hugo, it looks like you have everything under control here. We’re going to go ahead and grab a bite to eat. You don’t mind staying with the ship, do you?”
Hugo: “Why not? It’s not like I ever want to go on any adventures or eat real food.”
Doog: “So that’s a yes? Cool, we’ll see you in about an hour.”




Doog: “Alright guys, the budgets looking pretty slim, so I’m only going to be able to take three of you with me. Mike, Cam, you guys are in for sure. The only real decision is between Oldie and Timbo. Let’s see, Oldie, for starters, you’re still not wearing any pants, but you do have to sign off on any expenditures. Timbo, well, you’re Timbo. And what are you wearing? Is that a pony prancing across the sunset on your shirt? Do they make any brighter pants?”




Doog: “I’m sorry Timbo, but I’m going to have to go with Oldie on this one. That is, if he gets some freaking pants!”
Oldie: “Oh, oh, I will! I will! Thanks Doog.”
Doog: “Don’t mention it. Now, Timbo, don’t stand around moping. The Magellan’s looking a little dusty. Maybe you could use one of these brushes to give her a quick clean up. If you do a good enough job, we’ll bring you some leftovers.”




Mike: “You’re not really going to bring him anything, are you?”
Doog: Nope. I’ll probably just ‘forget’.”
Oldie: “Wait for me!”




Doog: “This must be it, Popina’s Diner. It looks halfway decent.”
Mike: “Yeah, I haven’t stepped on a single roach yet. That has to be a record for us.”




Doog: “A little dark and dingy, but the food smells great.”
Cam: “Let’s just hope it’s better than the Cesso Rest Station.”
Doog: “Indeed.”




FLO: “Hey boys! Welcome to Popina’s Diner. I’m FLO, you’re Friendly Lunch Operator. Please, follow me. I’ll get you guys seated. You’re in for a treat!”




FLO: “So, what’s it going to be? May I recommend the eggs?”
Doog: “Uh, can we get a menu or something? I’m not sure what I want.”
Oldie: “Ooh! I want eggs!”




FLO: “Oh dear, I’m sorry. The only menu we have is up on the wall here. We’re probably not as fancy as the fine establishments you inner galaxy boys are used to visiting. Oh, by the way, we’ve been out of burgers and fries for a few months now. So how about some drinks and some eggs?”
Doog: “Well, I guess that’s ok. It’s better than the usual gruel we eat.”



Thirty Minutes Later:

FLO: “I trust everything was enjoyable? You’ve nearly cleared your plates.”
Doog: “Yeah, better than enjoyable. Those were some of the best eggs I’ve ever had!”
Oldie: “I’m ready to take my pants off again. I’m full to the brim!”
Crew: “No!”
Doog: “So, how much is this going to set us back?”
FLO: “Oh honey, you don’t pay me. I’m just an automated food server. I don’t have anything in my programming related to money. Go see Popina up at the counter. Have a great day!”




Doog: “So…uh…we had two orders of eggs and two drinks. How much do we owe you?”
Popina: “That’s funny, FLO’s diagnostic readout has you down for four eggs and four drinks. Hey…wait a minute, you’re not trying to pull a fast one on me, are you? I’ll have you ejected out the nearest airlock.”
Doog: “Uh, no, no, I’d never do that to you Mr. Popina. I must have misspoke.”
Popina: “Really…I’m really starting to think we have a problem here…nah, I’m just messing with you. You’re Doog, right? We watch your show all the time! I’m Popina, but you can call me Pops. Hey honey, come out here! Doog from that show is here at our little diner!”




Wife: “Wow! I thought you were pulling my leg! It really is Doog! Oh my! Maybe you guys could do a show here or something!”
Pops: “Yeah! Yeah! You could do a show. You already have all your stuff.”
Doog: “Actually, we’re sort of busy right now. I just want to pay the bill. Besides, I’m not sure there’s much to shoot here. It’s just a diner.”
Pops: “I’ll tell you what, if you shoot an episode here, your lunch is free.”
Doog: “I think I like that idea. Maybe we could do a three or four part episode.”




Pops: “Ha, you really did like the eggs, didn’t you? But I think one episode will suffice.”
Doog: “Are you sure? There seems to be a lot of cool stuff in here. We could do a whole show on those ventilation fans, and maybe one on the drink dispensers. I’m willing to stay all season long if the free food keeps coming.”
Pops: “No, no. One episode is plenty. Besides, it’s not the diner that’s interesting. It’s its cellar. Honey, will you keep an eye on things, I’m going to take the boys downstairs.”
Wife: “Ok, have fun boys! Nice to meet you!”




Pops: “Things have been pretty rough here lately. Business is slow, and we can’t ever make enough credits to buy more food. So one day, I was down here in our storage cellar contemplating how to make food from these cardboard boxes when I found this nifty hidden passageway. Come on, don’t be scared. I’ve been coming down here for months now.”




Pops: “This secret passageway leads to hundreds of rooms just like this. I soon realized that I found all the food I’ll ever need!”
Doog: “What are they?”
Pops: “They’re eggs! And the best part, they seem to be in some sort of suspended animation. When I break them out, they’re fresh as day one.”




Doog: “Are you telling me that we just ate some random eggs that you found in a secret hidden basement? I knew this place was too good to be true.”
Pops: “Now, now, don’t worry. Nobody has ever gotten ill from eating these eggs, and, you have to admit, they’re pretty delicious.”
Doog: “Yeah, but what kind of eggs are they? I mean, have you ever read these computers. I’m not the brightest tool in the shed…”
Mike: “Uh, its actually sharpest tool in the shed, Doog.”
Doog: “Uh, yeah, that’s what I meant. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I can see right here that these computers say ‘Warning! Biological Contaminants Isolated Within’ and ‘Warning! Eggs Contain Weaponized Biologicals’.”
Pops: “I guess I was so excited I never really looked what the computers said.”
Doog: “I’m certainly not perfect, but, man, you need to be more careful. What if one of them ever hatched?”




Pops: “Uh…funny you mentioned that. A few weeks ago, I tried to carry too many upstairs at once. I dropped a few, and well, they rolled down the corridor. I never went back for them”
Crew: “What!”
Mike: “Hey guys! Do you hear that? It sounds like its coming from the walls!”
Oldie: “They’re here!”
Doog: “Run!”




Doog: “Somebody trip Oldie! They’ll have to slow down to eat him. It will give us more time!”
Oldie: “Doog!”
Doog: “You’ve lived a long life. Stop being selfish!”




Oldie: “Hurry! Close the passageway!”
Cam: “Get some boxes in front of the door!”
Mike: “Doog! Where are you going! We need help securing the door!”




Doog: ‘Uh, it looks like you guys have it all under control. I’ll see you at the ship!”



Two hours later:

Doog: Hey, guys you finally made it. What took you so long?”
Mike: “Dang it, Doog! You left us to die back there. We had to hold the door for nearly an hour before station security arrived.”
Oldie: “Yeah, apparently we stumbled upon some secret weapons program hidden deep in the station’s interior. We’re not supposed to tell anyone.”
Cam: “That included Doog, Oldie. You’ve already failed.”
Doog: “Hmm, sounds like you guys had a busy day. Well, I’m exhausted. I’m going to wake up Hugo, jump into bed, and take a nice long nap. Wake me up when we get to Saxa.”
Crew: “Doog!”




Note: The weapons program has since been cancelled, but officials are exploring the use of the biologicals’ eggs as a foodstuff.

This episode had a couple of real "LOL" moments. Great writing and I think taking little side trips in between the big planets helps keep things fresh... although I have to admit I thought Pops was going to try to harvest them for meat or something... Can't wait for the next one! ~ Chris.

Awesomeness! The whole egg thing kinda reminded me of the Alien movie series, and whatnot. Also, it would be pretty cool to see an episode with only the crew and not Doog, as those guys have their own form of hilarity!

Is 'Shut Down' a fancy term for LIU-wiped-out-everyone-there? >Eric

Have you ever thought of doing an episode about Ludgonious himself? It'd be interesting and potentially funny to learn about LIU's namesake.

Awesome MOC.
Quoting The end note The weapons program has since been cancelled, but officials are exploring the use of the biologicals’ eggs as a foodstuff.
Haha, Now that poor aliens business is going to be shut down, he will probably be locked up, and the LIU is going use his stumbled upon food source to feed some starving planet. A well earned 5-5

You're on a roll, excellent work! I wonder what those weaponized eggs taste like with a little bit of salsa on them.

Not sure I'd want to get back into an enclosed space with Doog after those eggs. To me THAT sounds like the biological hazard!
