From the Indicator:
J.T.S.: Elias Stein to the stand
AGRAMONTE: Senior buttons, prom tickets! Oh Stein, they've got some nice round numbers there.
STEIN: (at his primest) I am presently investigating the properties of prime numbers.
AGRAMONTE: (who has a one track mind) That's just what I meant; round numbers in their prime.
J.T.S. hastily buys a ticket.
J.T.S.: Well Stein. What do you think our chances are of keeping girls out of Stuyvesant?
STEIN: That depends entirely on 1/2d2 rdDdr.
J.T.S.: How is it that your formula depends entirely on curves Stein?
Stein says nothing but merely buys a prom ticket from the overjoyed Agramonte. The expression on his face is only slightly disdainful.
