"How many bodies are there?"

"This is a fairly broken instruction apparatus designed to take out the instructor's head"

"What I want to know from you is how many conservation laws did he break?" --Prof. Sparks, on Michael Jordan's activities in above-mentioned cartoon.

Geoff Romer: "but the proton has a magnetic dipole moment!" (minute of silence) Sparks: "That was an interesting statement."

"The least they could do is get the colors right...and look at the butterflies in the interstellar medium!"
