Scene: Crockett's office
Me: You know what I hate? That thing people say about aiming for the stars and ... or the moon.. or hitting something else - you know the thing I mean?
Crockett: Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll end up among the stars?
Me: Yeah, that. That's stupid. There are no stars between here and the moon.
Crockett: And if you go past it, you'll just end up lost in the vast emptiness of space between Earth and Mars. And if you're really unlucky, you'll end up at an Earth-Moon Lagrange point and be stuck there forever.
The two morals here are: 1) don't aim for the moon, there's nothing good out there if you miss, and 2) don't start a discussion about the moon with an aerospace engineer.
