This is somewhat a preview of my Invisible Math post for next week. This is from the shooting script for “When the Bough Breaks”.
2 INT. ANOTHER CORRIDOR
as Riker HURRIES to the turbolift. HARRY, a smallish
ten-year-old boy, runs down the corridor, head down,
colliding with Riker.
What’s your hurry, Harry?
Harry looks up at him, not believing what he’s done.
Oops. Sorry, Commander. I was,
Harry’s father, HARRY BERNARD, SR., APPEARS and is
furious with his son.
I’m sorry if he bothered you.
No bother, Doctor Bernard.
Riker limps slightly as he walks toward the turbolift.
I’m not going back. I hate that
teacher. And I hate calculus.
Everyone needs an understanding
of basic calculus, whether they
like it or not.
Riker REACTS to Harry’s question with a smile.
