Frasier: All right, Kirby, we've got a few minutes before your mother gets here. One last question: In our studies this week, what did we learn about William Henry Harrison?
Kirby: l, I guess I would say that this week we learned that William Henry Harrison was... a great man... who was important...because he was...
Kirby: No. Yes! Yes.
Frasier: Good, good. And which president was he?
Kirby: Of the United States.
Frasier: I mean which number?
(Kirby looks confused)
Frasier: All right, here's a hint: He was elected in eighteen-forty.
Frasier: Kirby! Did you do any reading this week?
Kirby: Sort of.
Frasier: What does "sort of" mean?
Frasier: Right. Why not?
Kirby: 'Cause it's a bunch of junk I'm never gonna need to know.
Frasier: Yes, Kirby, this "junk", as you call it, may seem unimportant to you now, but knowing something about where we came from may help you to decide where you wish to go. Now, let's start learning about history, lest you be condemned to repeat it. (He pushes the text book over to Kirby) Start reading. Continue until your mother gets here.
