The second half of Dennis Miller's radio show opening seems to be widely mis-attributed to Alan Shepard. All I can find on the 'net to support this belief is this clip from the film "The Right Stuff". Having wet his pants while waiting for the launch of the Redstone rocket on his Freedom 7 mission, and becoming frustrated with the mission specialists' concerns and delays, Shepard, the commander on the solo flight, barks "All right, I'm cooler than you are. Why don't you fix your little problems and light this candle?"

Gordon Cooper, who served as capsule communicator (CAPCOM), responded, "He's right! Let's light this candle."
