Stephanie: Well, she wants to--date you, I mean.
George: How do you--how do you--how can you tell?
Stephanie: Throbbing carotid, light moisture on her epidermal layer, dilated pupils. All classic signs of pheromone emissions. Ooh. I've been hanging out with Katie a little too much.
Katie: Everyone says that Internet dating is for, like, geeky, socially awkward types, but I meet a lot of people just like me.
Katie: I mean, this might be my only chance to tutor a burgeoning Lex Luthor, or... oh, even, say, a young Reed Richards. Okay, work might not be the only reason I'm single.

Jim: Well, it helped not to think of it as crap, for one thing.
Katie: I mean, this might be my only chance to tutor a burgeoning Lex Luthor, or... oh, even, say, a young Reed Richards.
Lex Luthor is the scientific genius and businessman who opposes Superman in the comic books. Reed Richards not only has the power of super-stretching, but possesses an innate genius.
