[PBS Opening Theme]

Some say the world will end in fire, some in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate,
to say for destruction ice is great and would suffice.

Oh, my gosh. That was perfect. Except it's if it had to perish twice not perish ice.

I said perish twice!

You said perish ice, I'm marking it down. One error.

I said perish twice.

Rob! Can we look at it right now? Can we just look at it? ROB!

He's not here; he's still on his Alaskan extreme Nordic adventure - whatever that is.

He's still gone? When's he supposed to be back?

Quit stalling.

How can he just leave us here like this? [sigh]



Begin. Begin!

Old King Cole was a merry old soul
And a…

You've got to be kidding me.


[Frankenstein MD Intro] (1:10)

Victoria: Tell the people what we've learned.

Iggy: [sigh] On the video it kinda sounds like she said perish twice


Meaning I miss Robert! He would have had my back!

Meaning, the results of the poetry recitation test were definitive with Victoria Frankenstein recalling Robert Frost's entire poem with no errors both in the no sleep and fully rested sessions. Iggy DeLacey, on the other hand, could recall 89% of Old King Cole when fully rested and only 10 words after two days awake. 

It said fiddlers three, it's three fiddlers!

It's not a competition, it's science. Though if it were a competition, I would be winning handily. 

Oh wow.

Okay, up next…

Is something the matter, Victoria?

I thought next we would just do a simple vision test but what I have written is crossed out and what's written here is-


What is red hands?

It's a game of skill, diplomacy and lightening reflexes. Alright? One player is the slappee and the other one is the slapper and then you kind of have to slap eachother's hands.

Oh! Slap jack.

Slap jack? No! It's my game. It's my name.


[Cut] (2:39)

Iggy: Ladies first. Oh, right sorry. Good luck.

Victoria: Crap!

Yeah! Too slow, my turn!

This is very scientific Doctor DeLacey, so glad it's been added to the agenda. (!)

Uhuh. It's pay back for the slime molds - lets do this.

OWW! Hey! 

One point for me!

Fine. You win. I resign. 

What! After one round your done?
Hey Victoria, how are your hands? Are they red? Do you have RED HANDS?

Shut up!

[cut] (3:29)

Victoria: Now for challenge number three.

The final challenge. Winner takes all.

We will be employing the same technique that law enforcement officers famously used to detect drunkenness. Walking in a straight line, touching our noses with outstretched hands, reciting the alphabet backwards.

And you are so going down.

When we were well rested, Doctor DeLacey and I were both able to complete the test flawlessly with no stumbles or mistakes.

I got this. Z… Y… X… W…

Hold that thought. 
[On phone] Doctor Frankenstein. 

What okay now we're just saying Doctor Frankenstein?

Oh my god! Yeah, yeah. We'll be right there. 

What's wrong?

It's Robert. There's been an accident.
