9 CLONED CELL PHONES
1 DEEP CURRENT
Penfield: (about Tooner) We gotta get this guy, he made me itch in front of strangers!
Charlie: How about a truce?
Penfield: Is this some game theory trick?
Charlie: If it was, I would be using the fourth-level altruism ploy, right?
Charlie: Seriously, every time I come up with something new, in the back of my mind I'm thinking, 'Penfield's gonna tear this apart.'
Penfield: No, you're just saying this to be nice.
David: (in a movie trailer voice-over voice) In a world where mathematicians go mano y mano with a killer...
Colby: (in the same type of voice)...this time, it's personal.
Penfield: God, why am I so stupid?
Charlie: You want answers one through fifty? Or fifty through one hundred?
Charlie: I think going to temple's an interesting choice. I have nothing negative to say about that.
Charlie: At least it's not a monastery.
Nikki: I get it. You don't want us making life miserable for innocent grad students.
Penfield: That's what professors are for.
Larry: Enough! Surely two eminent mathematicians can find ways to calmly discuss theory.
Charlie: We're not discussing theory.
Penfield: No, we're talking hamburgers.
Charlie: Talking about set theory. Let's say this circle represents objects visible in the night sky. And this circle represents objects that generate light. Where they overlap is a subset: objects visible in the night sky that generate light, like a star.
Penfield: How do you not have your own show on PBS?
Nikki: That mean anything to you?
Charlie: Not immediately. But there might be a subset within the superset.
Nikki: And for those of us who don't speak math?

Colby: (to David, as they are walking through Tooner's neighborhood, looking for him) Everybody knows our name, but nobody's glad we came.
Colby's remark is an allusion to a line from the theme song from the TV series Cheers - "Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came."
