Title: 108:15:37 Network controller gets in trouble for not responding to Flight

...due to whitehouse communications setup. I believe he was later sent home, but I can't find the clip that refers to that.

Interesting. It sounds to me like Charlesworth is kidding with him but I can't work out how long he was actually waiting for a response.

This reminded me of a somewhat comparable incident the day before the landing, when the crew woke up early from their sleep period and no one heard them calling for a long while. Except for Yaw, who didn't mention it. In the end it was FIDO who confessed this to Flight.

FIDO (Jay Greene): Flight, FIDO. Yaw says he heard them. He says he heard them call about three times.
Flight (Glynn Lunney): Yaw, if you heard that, why didn't you mention it in the room?
FIDO: Yeah, we should have.
Flight: Yeah!

Found it! He did get in trouble but wasn't sent home for this. He was sent home the night before for something else.
