Duval: I was thinking of getting Shirley a collar that says, "If lost, call Kamal."
//Shirley, who recently got a haircut, walks into Math Phys Kamal: Hey, Shirley got a haircut! Shirley: Actually, I was hit by a train. Mikey: Whoa, really?!? Wait, you got hit by a train?! Actually, that's highly improbable. [...]

//Diana and Caroline are talking about animal mating rituals, including those done by human males. Kamal is playing Half Life nearby. Kamal: The game is a mating ritual.

Kamal: It's a math book. Ben: Multivariable calculus! Whitacre: Yeah, it's gotta go. //Whitacre drops the book out the window //everyone runs to the window to see //meanwhile, Kamal runs outside to retrieve his textbook Steven: Next goes the stool! //Steven starts putting the stool out the window, but Whitacre closes the window //Kamal gets his textbook, but he's locked out of the building //Whitacre asks another student to let Kamal in Whitacre (opening back up the window): We're sending rescue! (to the class) He can do math, but he can't get back into the building. Kamal (upon returning): That was roughly the coolest thing ever!
Kamal: Anyone want brownies? *holds up a bag* Jacob: Whoo! *jumps up, then slips and falls because he's only wearing socks*
//Jacob and Kamal are doing math on the board Whitacre: Is that something good or is that crap? Jacob: Oh, just... don't worry about it. Whitacre: Don't worry about it? I'm going over to look. I learned that from my parents.
