from Stand and Deliver (1988)
Jaime Escalante: ...Did you know that neither the Greeks nor the Romans were capable of using the concept of zero? It was your ancestors, the Mayans, who first contemplated the zero.

Jaime Escalante: We're gonna need a lot of Kleenexes - there's gonna be a lot of bloodshed.
