Here, thanks to Bad Astronomy is some great footage of Neil Armstrong taking that giant leap for mankind.

Update:

You can read the entire mission transcript. A coworker found a nice exchange on page 295:

CAPCOM         Roger. Among the large headlines concerning Apollo this morning there’s one asking that you watch for a lovely girl with a big rabbit. An ancient legend says a beautiful Chinese girl called Chango has been living there for 4,000 years. It seems she was banished to the moon because she stole the pill for immortality from her husband. You might also look for her companion, a large Chinese rabbit, who is easy to spot since he is only standing on his hind feet in the shade of a cinnamon tree. The name of the rabbit is not recorded.

SC         Okay, we’ll keep a close eye for the bunny girl.
