Okay, here we go.

Smaller braincase, slight crest

on the top of the skull, wide upper jaw,

- but small teeth?

- Homo Habilis.

- Well done.

- Wait.

You teach comparative religion.

There's more to human history

than religion, Tara.

For sure, yeah.

We were just going to go grab coffee.

Do you want to join?

I'm gonna grab a bite with Professor

Kittriss when she finishes. But thank you.

You like these Cro-Magnons?

Well, they're more of a mash-up

of various early humans,

but I like the cave paintings.

Me, too.

Hey, let's get a shot

in front of the display.



Carolyn told me you wanted

to borrow some books.

Come by any time, take whatever you want. If

I haven't read them yet, I probably won't.


thank you, Professor Young.

You're welcome.

I'll see you girls in class.


"I like the paintings."

Dude, he knows more about this stuff

- My point is, he's a very brilliant man.

- Hey, hon.

- Hey.

You should come running with me some time.

Running from what?

- To stay in shape.

- Nah.


I, uh... need a shower.

You want to come wash my back?

In truth, yes.



How's this batch?

Any geniuses I should be on the lookout for?

You mean, anyone who can

write a coherent sentence?

You remember when kids went to

college to expand their minds?

Now, it seems to be just a perfunctory

step on their way to Silicon Valley.

And those are the good ones.

I don't know.

You really think young people have

changed that much in twenty years?

I like this gray.


But if it bugs you, then color it.


I won't tell.

You know Muhammad dyed his hair?

See? If it's good enough

for the prophet, then...
