*Mr Pham had just shown the prospective 9th graders setting alcohol on fire* Mr Pham: Now, I be worried about burning down the building? *Everyone says yes except one person who says no* Mr Pham: who said no? Bracklinn: me Mr Pham: why?? Bracklinn: we can always build a new Blair
Student: What if you used a flamethrower to set fire to everyone? Pham: Then I save myself a lot of grading.
//Block B Chem, discussing the tissue paper hot air balloon lab. Elliot: Wait, isn't tissue paper flammable? Pham: *smiling* Of course! You light, it burn all up! Elliot: So why would we use flames to...? Pham: Cause it fun to watch when you fail! Guy, you don't know me well yet.
Schwartz: You may not burn things. Let me amend that. You may not do that without supervision. Kusal: Does Mr. Pham count?
Schafer: I've got this. I'm really good at starting fires.
// at the start of 4th period Thermo Schafer: I heard that there's going to be a fire drill soon. Students: Really?! Schafer: Why are you so excited? It's like missing free time.
// during a Thermo test Schafer: Because we are in MC, our power is provided the wonderful...PEPCO! That means, in the event that the power goes out, which is very likely, you will be taking your test by candlelight! So don't think that you'll be off the hook for your test if the lights go out.
//Pham has prepared some hydrogen balloons and a lit candle. Student: I think there's a fire hazard here. Pham: There ALWAYS a fire hazard!
//during fire in 210s Jack P: Why are we out here? Danderson: Apparently there's a fire. Jack: Well who the hell did that? Danderson: Well let's see. First off, we were in 211, so me and Shelley aren't it. Then Schafer was considered, but he had SRPs going too, as did Pham. Jack: Could it have been Shirley? Danderson: (walks away shaking head) Student: Bet he's looking for Shirley now.
