The woman clapped her hands together in glee. 'You mean he did this? He's here right now? ' She scanned the room and finally locked gazes with Phil.

Noticing a metallic gleam he reached out and fished under his couch, coming up with a replica key chain version of the Delta Flier, the shuttle from Star Trek: Voyager. Phil's humour was such that he had decided to also attach a key chain version of the Eiffel tower onto it.
