I can't find the translation

for any of these hieroglyphs.

That's because you're focusing

on the Fourth Dynasty...

...while these particular glyphs are derived

from Third Dynasty regional variants.

"And so through these stones,

we summon down the powers of the gods. "

Slow down. Slow down.

A square on every level.

No more than. 01 percent error

in any of these walls.

As Napoleon himself exclaimed:

And for 4000 years,

until just 100 years ago... stood as the tallest

structure on Earth.

Look at those support stones

along the edge.

If even one of these stones

was but an inch out of alignment...

...the entire Great Pyramid

would come crashing down.

How did they do it?

How did these primitives...

...unlock the majesty...

...the mystery of trigonometry...

...and calculus... centuries ahead

of their time?

The answer?

They reached past themselves...

...and they touched the divine.

Summoned the muse.

Forged what is indeed

the greatest...

...of the original

Seven Wonders of the World!

Sorry. Somebody spill a mochaccino?

Yeah, right over there.


Hey, Flynn, you wanna stop fricking posing

and join the rest of the students?


Well done!

I want to thank...

I want to thank you all

for a great semester.

And despite what the naysayers

have been spouting...

Yes. We will show, for the first time... perfect one-twentieth scale,

using real pyramid stones...

...exactly what

the Great Pyramid looked like...

...complete with its missing capstone.

Right. Right.

Let's go back to work, shall we?

Well done.

- Professor.

- Yes?

I've been doing some thinking.

I think I might be more useful

managing the translation team.

- Yes.

- They don't seem to grasp...

Alas, Flynn... won't be continuing on

with the pyramid project.


But I'm your best student.

That's the problem.

You are my best student.

You are everyone's best student.

You've never been anything

but the best student.

Honestly, Flynn, I'd be doing you

a disservice to let you continue.

Well, that's unfair and confusing...

You already have, what,

four degrees in Egyptology?

Flynn, do you really need a fifth?

I'm weak on the Second Dynasty,

and I'm relatively useless on the Sixth.

How many degrees

do you have in total, Flynn?

- Not that many.

- I checked your transcript.

You have 22.

Professor, school is what I know.

It's what I'm good at.

It's where I feel most like myself.

You've been in this class

with these kids for three months now.

Do you even know their names?

- Of course I do.

- Oh, come on.

That's insulting.

Okay, I don't know anybody's name.

The reason is because

we all use nicknames.



Sweater guy.


Right back at you.

You're a professional student, Flynn.

You're avoiding life.

This is a serious problem

that I will no longer enable.

Professor, I have a very full life...

Oh, come on, don't give me that.

Have you ever been out of the city?

When was the last time

you went dancing or to a ball game?

Okay, wait a second now!

- What is it exactly that you're doing...?

- You need to find a job, Flynn!

To get some real-life experiences.

Flynn, I've already spoken

with the administration.

- And I have signed off on your degree here.

- No, no.


- It's the middle of the semester!

- Yes, it is.

- I can't sign up for a program for months.

- Exactly.

No, no. Please, no. Don't.

All I wanna do is learn.

We never stop learning, Flynn. Never.

It's only where we learn that changes.

And it's about time you started doing it
