Elliot was totally giving Tycho the fun part of the job! Well, more accurately, Elliot was taking the easy part of the job because he totally didn’t give a crap about any of this, which was fair. But Tycho on the other hand loved this stuff. So everybody won!
“Sounds good to me,” he replied. He also really liked the smoke idea. That would be sweet and make their model way cooler than anybody else’s. Or maybe it would just make it look like it was on fire.

Hell yeah, dude, Tycho was so ready for this.
