[Discussing how Knight didn't come in to the lab]
Bodie: He said he didn't feel like it. And I said, "You'd better!" And he said, "Or what?" And I said, "Or you're gonna be in trouble." And he said, "Jam it."
Professor Hathaway: That's a wonderful story, Bodie. I noticed you've stopped stuttering.

Professor Hathaway: I'm not kidding, Chris.
Chris Knight: Neither am I, Jerry.

Professor Hathaway: What are you looking at? You're laborers; you should be laboring. That's what you get for not having an education.

Professor Hathaway: Count on it.

Professor Hathaway: You are of no further use to me!
Chris Knight: [pause] Interesting way to begin a conversation...

Chris Knight: Hey how's it going, Jerry?
Professor Hathaway: What do you want, Knight?
Chris Knight: World peace, but I don't think this is the time to discuss it.

Professor Hathaway: I'm not interested in anything you have to say.
Susan: [Coming downstairs in just a rumpled man's shirt] Dr. Hathaway...
