People love to put down the fields of others. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s all about ego and all, but honestly it just seems bizarre at times.

SCIENCE: Yeah, we sent a man to the moon, but what have writers given us? Othello, Macbeth, and Hamlet were all written by one person! Where's your King Lear? Oh, is it kind of hard to do? Well, so is science! We can't solve all the problems at once!
HOBO: You know, I read that they're not even sure who invented the ice cream sandwich.
BEARD: Lazy historians.
