Good News is a brand of herbal supplement that the professor had need for in 3013. [7ACV16] After running out of supplement, the professor sent the crew to Omicron Persei 8 — the only place where the supplement's active ingredient grows. The ingredient later cleared up his arthritis and his glaucoma.
The professor: Good news, everyone! I'm in terrible pain.
Hermes: How is that good news?
The professor: It's not. I've run out of Good News-brand herbal supplement. If you don't get me more Good News, everyone, my arthritis will make me seize up like a dried monkey carcass.
