Haha, the exact same thing went through my mind at the time. I was thinking, "What're they gonna do? Turn the thing around and send it home?"

Yes. Perhaps they forgot that they has already separated from the cruse module. Or perhaps they planned to use some of the leftover coolant for reaction mass.

Seriously, though, I imagine it was just their way of reassuring the team that there were no problems that they needed to scramble to fix, before the encounter with the atmosphere. Still, the terminology was amusing.
