//Shirley is going to RSI over the summer Shirley: Hey Jacob, tell Ms. Ragan your summer plans! Jacob: Oh, I'm working at RSI. Ragan: Really? Doing what? Jacob: I'll be like a sysop. Ragan: No kidding! *laughs* They don't know what's about to hit them! I should write a letter to RSI right now warning them, "Do not let these two near each other under any circumstances."

Ragan: That's called leveraging. The NSF likes that. Wei-Hwa: Economics. Do they teach that in school now? Jacob: You can learn anything in discrete math! Ragan: Good answer.
Wei-Hwa: If I had stayed, I could have gotten an MS in computer science. Ragan: I wonder if that's changed... Wei-Hwa: You can now BS in computer science as much as you want. Piper: You fed him that!
//Wei-Hwa is talking to Mrs. Piper's artificial intelligence class and Ms. Ragan's discrete math class Wei-Hwa: So it's the intelligent people versus the discrete people, is that what this is? Piper: Ms. Ragan tries to be discreet about it.
