    • Michael: Did you explain school to him?
    • Elliott: How do you explain school to higher intelligence?
    • Michael: Maybe he's not that smart. Maybe he's like a worker bee who only knows how to push buttons or something.
    • [knowingly]
    • Elliott: He is too smart.
    • Michael: Okay, I just hope we don't wake up on Mars or something surrounded by millions of little squashy guys.
