It's Lonely Out in Space/Showtime

Houston, when am I scheduled to land?
Houston?
I'm all alone up here in the capsule,
There's plenty of O2 and provisions,
But I just want to come back to Earth.
My mission ended months ago,
Why do you keep me up here?
Is this Broadcast even getting through, Houston?
Houston...?









The song listed inspired the space theme, since the beginning of St. Elsewhere sounds like a rocket taking off in the background.



Continuing in this vein...

It's almost time
The lights are up
Full blast
Do you have your costume on yet?
CURTAIN OPENS IN FIVE!
Get that mask on, quick!
FOUR!
Get that foundation on the dancers!
THREE!
Where's our lead?
TWO!
There you are!
ONE!
Put on your Show Face!
NOW!
"Hello everyone!" says the Actor,
Barely keeping in character.
"Welcome to tonight's Production!"
Slightly more convincing.
"We perform it with Pride and Dignity!"
Even better still.
"Now, let's get on with the show, shall we?"
Applause smothers the thoughts
Of uncertainty in his head.
"We begin Act One, in the setting of,well, life!"
He becomes so convincing,
He forgets to break character
At the end of the show.
Nobody notices, however.
At first, not even the Actor.
Years later, he's still got his
Show Face on.
But he remembers,
It's all an Act.

This was inspired by the second listed song,
and how acting is nothing more than putting on a face for the crowds.
