That used the old "take a common phrase, make it a punchline, then create a long backstory to lead up to it" joke writing method.

So, we see what was done with "brush with death;" now do it it with:

winner by a neck
two peas in a pod
bull in a china shop
open a can of worms

(just an outline)
Astronaut runs out of human waste bags not long before returning to earth; so he urinates the last couple times on the detachable unit of the spacecraft. It was like two pees in a pod.
