From "From the Earth to the Moon: We Have Cleared the Tower (#1.3)" (1998)
Wally Schirra: STC? Apollo 7. Either our rate needles are way outta whack, or we're getting some substantial winds up here
Skip Chauvin: Uh roger, Apollo 7. It's not your rate needles. You've got wind.
Wally Schirra: Okay then... I'm recommending a hold in the count... these winds appear to be way out of the mission rule parameters.
[long pause]
Wally Schirra: You copy that Skip? We're not happy about the wind situation here!
Skip Chauvin: Uh roger that, Wally. Do you mean a... possible scrub situation here?
Wally Schirra: I hope not! I just don't like the situation.
Deke Slayton: Wally, Deke here. We have been assured by Meteorological, that we have an acceptable launch condition. But if you want to hold, we'll hold. It's up to you.
[very long pause. Skip moves to contact Wally, but Deke waves him off]
Wally Schirra: Uh... Deke? If you say... we're in the ballpark... then, I guess we're a go.
