In space, and having patronized a “Gamma Burst Bean Juice” drive-thru (fly-thru?) coffee joint, Crush “texts and drives” and has littered the cockpit of the “family spacecraft” with an abundance of empty “Gamma Burst” coffee containers, as Papa Lobo looks on disapprovingly.

Indexer Notes

Good Exchange: Crush finds her TV-headed last-issue-enemy working at the space coffee joint:

CRUSH...: You! I just kicked your butt six days ago!

CRUSH...: You're a barista?
TV-HEAD: I'm a coffiologist!
CRUSH..: Okay, that's not a real thing.
