    • Dr. Wilson: No, but since she's not a dead cat it's scientifically impossible for her to be in two places at once.
      Referring to the thought experiment by Erwin Schrödinger, often called "Schrödinger's Cat", in which he says a cat placed in a sealed box (unobservable), with a fatal device which has an unknown, random probability of going off after an unknown, random amount of time, cannot be said to be dead or alive -- its condition is truly indeterminate, hence it is actually in both states at once, until you decide open the box to take a look, and "fix" the state/condition it is in. This ties in closely with Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and a device called a Josephson Junction.
