Apollo 14 Astronaut Says it is All A Simulation & His Ceiling Cable Supports Get Tangled Up In The Communications Antenna -The Ceiling Stagehands Frantically Help To Fix It.
The two Astronauts set up the large communications antenna, however an Astronaut gets his ceiling support wire cables caught up in the antenna. The other Astronaut and the ceiling stagehands frantically help untangle the support cables. After the Astronaut has just flipped back upright the just opened antenna, he says, "All kinds of freebies (Help) in today's Simulation". The Astronaut is referring to the hidden stagehands helping from high above in the darkened studio ceiling, to untangle his support wire cables.
Houston's reply confirms the hidden wire men frantically helping out the Astronaut, "Roger, we've got the boys in the back room working overtime". The Astronauts laugh, then one says "Sure have!"
