If he had time to answer other things, then it wasn't that fast . Instead of "I'm sorry", "I had to" or "take a look at it" he could've said "I got kidnapped", "they had Billy" or "I was tortured". It would've took him the same time to complete those sentences. But the scene was written that way for a purpose, to show that the team is "breaking up". Like I said, I understand both sides and their reactions.
