Igor is nine time zones away and he has something to say:
"Bet you didn't guess I'd be here, did you?"
"Here, check this out!"
"I'll try to lift off the top of it."
"Okay, I admit. Maybe it was just a bit too heavy for me."
And when he had done that he decided to go up in the Space Needle to check out the view of Seattle.
"I am Major Igor Kong, Haha!"
"I have to run away from it!"
After visiting the Space Needle Igor had some actual business to attend.
He had a meeting scheduled in the largest building(by volume) in the world.
"If there's a place on this planet where there's potential to build a huge huge spaceship, this would be it"
"Now I'll just have to ask them to build me a Death Star."
"And if they can't, I'll catch the first flight home."
