Aristotle 'Tut' Jones:
You were my friend when nobody else knew I was alive. We were an odd combinaton: the campus hero and the greasy grind.
You taught me all I know about science; I could never teach you anything about football.
Gosh! Nobody could teach me anything.
Ikky, if you weren't the best flight engineer in 70 states, I'd never made it back from that last recon run in Korea.

Captain Midnight was a crime fighter, a jet pilot, a scientist and a super role model for kids. He gave me an early desire to become a jet pilot when I grew up. I never did though, become a jet pilot I mean. I was a fan from the beginning of the TV series and never missed an episode when we lived in Los Angeles. I had a secret squadron decoder ring too. If I remember it right, I sent in the paper seal on the inside of the cap of a bottle of Ovaltine plus 25 cents and I got the ring in the mail. Pretty cheesy little gadget that fell apart quickly but it was a symbol of the show and I liked having it. I believe he had a slick special car too to go along with the streamlined theme of the base and the jet. Yeah, really good entertainment for kids of the day IMHO.
