    • Harry: (watching sci-fi on TV) Look at that, it's totally bogus.
      Neil: What?
      Harry: The very act of disassembling someone's atomic structure and then reassembling without even a receiver on the end?
      Neil: Okay, point taken. You need a receiver but what it really does, it destroys the original and makes an exact copy on the other side, the receiving end.
      Harry: Yeah, but according to Heisenberg the very act of scanning would disrupt the original, thus making an exact duplicate impossible.
      Neil: The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect allows for that. How else do you explain the physics team in Australia that took apart a laser beam and recreated it a meter away? That's right.
      Harry: Am I right in assuming they don't teach Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen in high-school science?
      Neil: Yeah, I'm a little ahead of my... (pause) You know, it's nice having somebody around that understands this stuff.
      Harry: Thanks.
      Neil: Oh, sorry about the bottom-feeder crack. (Neil called him that earlier)
      Harry: Okay. You are what you eat.
      (Chuck looks into the room)
      Chuck: Would you two geniuses get off your fat butts and come here and give us a hand?
