"You know what would make this a perfect beach day? Some ALGEBRA!" "Who wants to build a sand castle?" "Not me." "Hey, here's a good brain teaser!" "Brain teaser?" "Four friends meet for lunch. Three of the four order meals costing at least..." "Whoa, whoa! That's math!" "No, look, the book's called 'Boffo Brain Teasers'!" "It's math, Francis! I'm not doing math during summer vacation!" "Okay, I'll give you another one: a pie is sliced three times..." "Hold it, hold it! Let me give you a brain teaser!" "'Bill' is driving 'Jim' crazy by reading math problems out loud while 'Jim' is trying to sleep in the sun!..." "How long until 'Jim' completely snaps and gives 'Bill' the world's most painful 'power wedgie'?" "Think I'll go help out with that sand castle." "Good answer."
