  • Quotes

    • Rose: Dorothy, in times like these, you have to hold on to your faith. Just like Hanz Glookenflonkin: St. Olaf's greatest explorer.
      Dorothy: Rose, please, let me have a little recovery time before you start a St. Olaf story--
      Rose: You see, Hanz Glookensplonkin, set out for Florida, to find the Fountain of Intelligence. Unfortunately, when he got to Duluth he took a left, instead of a right and wound up back in St. Olaf. That's how he got his nickname, Wrong Way Gaflookenflonkin.
      Dorothy: Rose, how is this a story about faith?
      Rose: Well, when he got back it was the dead of winter. Tired and hungry, but still clinging to his belief that he would find the Fountain of Intelligence. He saw the miracle water, trickling out of the ground, and he fell to his knees and tasted it. Unfortunately, it was a broken sewer main. Two days later he died of Carra.
      Dorothy: What is the point, Rose?
      Rose: He was positive he had found the Fountain of Intelligence. In fact, his dying words were, "I think I've learned something from this."
