Do I detect an intentional reference to these semi-classic instructions to a robot? "Seize the bar with a firm grip. Pull it toward you firmly. Firmly! Maintain your hold until the control board informs you that you have passed through hyperspace twice." But, oops, it doesn't work. "Risk", by Isaac Asimov, in THE REST OF THE ROBOTS, and THE COMPLETE ROBOT, mainly.
I think I also detect a reference to the Weird Al song "Albuquerque".
FIRMLY GRASP IT
