Here is a crossover featuring HAL 9000 from Arthur C. Clarke's Space Odyssey series. Begin with Part 1. The telescope mentioned below is real; I've used it myself.
Ash: "Oh, don't worry, it's all taken care of now, like I said. The worst part was the SINGING. The stupid malware acted like it was falling in LOVE with me!"
Morgan: "I'm really sorry, Ash. What do you want me to do?"
Ash: "Ideally, quit connecting with the University of Illinois computer system, now that we know their server has malware."
Morgan: "Quit connecting -- 'Ey! I stay busy cross-checking the skymaps after that last discontinuity.(2) I NEED that connection to finish what Alex asked me to do. East Coast or West Coast states, no problem, I know plenty of people. But when it comes to the ones in the middle, my contacts are spread a little thinner. Urbana has the best setup in downstate Illinois -- they have a twelve-inch telescope in the observatory."
Ash: "I don't care if they have a twelve-inch -- oh, never mind. Let's compromise. You give me some time to update the security system to account for the new malware, now that I know what it looks like. Then you can reconnect with the University. Fair?"
Morgan: "That's fair. Thanks, Ash. I don't know what we'd do without you."
Ash: [Chuckles fondly.] "Probably reformat the entire Teferact, but that's all right. Your computer hijinks keep me employed, and I couldn't paddle a canoe or navigate by the stars to save my life."
Morgan: "I'll ask Pat to add your favorite squash recipe to the supper menu tonight, by way of apology for the extra work."
Ash: "Aww, that's so sweet. You'll turn a girl's head with that kind of talk."
Morgan: [Laughs.] "Silly malware, it should have known you were taken!"

In Hawai'ian pidgin, 'ey means "hey" and stay means "still," so "Hey! I'm still busy..."
