Mary and Sheldon are talking about the winner of this year’s Chancellor’s Award for Science.


女底色 Hey, Sheldon. I was up in the administration office,and I happened to overhear the name of the winner of this year’s Chancellor’s Award for Science.

男底色 And you want to rub my nose in the fact that my contributions are being overlooked again?

女底色 I am the William Shatner of theoretical physics.

男底色 All right, I’ll play.What selfimportant, preening fraud are they honoring this year?

女底色 Oh, I’m so glad you asked it like that. You.

男底色 I won?

女底色 You won.

男底色 I won!

男底色 This is astonishingNot that I won the awardno one deserves it moreActually, I guess I misspoke. It’s not astonishing; more like inevitable.

男底色 I’m not sure what to do first. Maybe I should call my mother.Wait! I knowI’m going to conduct an interview with myself and post it online.

女底色 Well, good for him. the one thing the William Shatner of theoretical physics needed was an ego boost.
