Chili and coffee? Who eats that?
Me, at the Tastee Diner in Silver Spring, MD about twenty minutes before writing the scene.
Hey, I eat chili with coffee, too.

And, mmmmm, Tastee Diner! Didn't get to go on the last Polaris shoot. Wah!

I don't know how conscious or unconscious it was, because it wasn't I who came up with it...
I can testify to that. A number of elements (especially backstory) I used in the unfilmed "Atlantis Invaders" came from others working on the production. Considering how much "borrowing" goes on in fan productions, I'm certain that the plot element in question could have been tweaked so that I would have been seen as anything much more than an homage, but Dennis was right to raise the red flag on the principle and have it cut.
