Episode Quotes
Narrator: I guess I never really thought of my parents as being in love. But maybe that's the best thing for a kid -- to never have to think about it. It's just always there. Like the ground you walk on.
(Cuts to science class)
Mr. Cantwell: The surface of the earth may look stable, but it's in constant motion, shifted by molten forces below. The shapes of our continents, so familiar to us today, will shift and reform like so much pond scum.
Narrator: Mr. Cantwell had such a rosy view of the miracles of science.
