Ted Arroway, fictional father

Why was he shaving at night, when no one would know if he had a beard? "Because" -- he smiled-- "your mother will know." Years later, she discovered that she had understood this cheerful remark only incompletely. Her parents had been in love.

This Father's Day, I sound off Dr. Arroway's thoughts in Contact- I'd like to think Papa is also somewhere in space, listening, perhaps sending soundwaves.

Happy Father's Day to your dads. :)
