//Duval is discussing with the class what the long term substitute had and hadn't gone over Duval: Ok, how about origins of life? Did you guys learn about the Miller-Urey experiment? //class murmurs in recognition Kinjal: Oh yeah! The thing with the tubes and the... Tubes!
//talking about siblings in the magnet Norton: Wow Richard I didn't know you had a sister in the magnet? Richard: Yeah of course I do Norton: I guess it's true. All Chens are related. //class laughs while agreeing with him Norton: I'm pretty sure everyone in the magnet is related to one another. Except for you Fausto. Fausto: Wait why? Norton: Well...
//Norton is a long-term substitute for Ms. Duval, who normally teaches Magnet 10th-grade Biology. He said this his second-to-last day teaching the class: Norton: I haven't communicated with Ms. Duval in over a month. She probably thinks we're still doing the origin of life.
Norton: I took Statistics in college. I barely passed . . . Statistics is really important though.
//Norton on career choices //Period 3 Bio, discussing 'Interstellar', a movie about astronauts searching for a habitable world after Earth is destroyed by environmental change Norton: See, the thing is, that movie is relevant to today. The world needs more agricultural scientists, not game developers. Be an agricultural scientist.
Garret: Where's my worksheet? Elia: Oh, I turned it in for you. And wrote your name on it for you. Norton (immediately): Who is Gurt Kern?
// Morning Announcements PA: Are you a republican and would like to engage in a debate or argument? *Norton laughs sarcastically*
// The day in Bio that we did nothing Student: What did you do in Bio today? Ramu: Oh~ we ate lunch, did some Algebra, played Pictionary, and watched a movie.
// Email from Mr. Norton Subject: Urgent Message!!! Date: Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:40:43 PM Body: Dear class, Until further notice I have none of the files I have been using for class available to me. Everything for all my classes is on a purple flashdrive that I have been keeping in a nondescript white envelope folded into thirds with a clip on it. This flashdrive has been misplaced, so every Powerpoint, Word document, or other file associated with all my classes is lost until further notice. I did not back up these files. Best wishes, Mr. Norton
//Flower dissection lab Student: Mr. Norton, someone took apart all these flowers! Norton: Oh. Thanks, Obama.
