Eloping electronics

Me:
I've got a backup drive missing. It's not out for repair is it?
Gregg:
I think it ran away with the [also missing] access point... They eloped and had many babies that grew up into wireless NAS's.

There’s always an Alien Battle Cruiser…or a Korlian Death Ray, or…an intergalactic plague about to wipe out life on this planet, and the only thing that lets people get on with their hopeful little lives is that they don’t know about it.

Gregg:
We have to find out why our phone lines are breaking up.
Me:
Obviously, they were not fully committed to the relationship.
