Swiss Patent Office. Night.
EINSTEIN: And so I told him, either the cat is dead [pulling
deeply on joint] ...
EINSTEIN: [exhaling a huge cloud of smoke] Oh that was too-oo
much. [Einstein coughs and doubles up coughing]
MAN: Take it easy, dude. Bogart is still an infant.
EINSTEIN: Whew yeah.
[silence as the smoke cloud settles around them]
MAN: You bring your violin?
EINSTEIN: Left it.
[Knock at the door. Man's voice.]
SECOND MAN: Is this Dr. Frankenstein's office?
MAN: Four doors down on the left.
SECOND MAN: Thank you.
MAN: So, how's things with Mileva?
EINSTEIN: She's good. I have a feeling, you know, that she might
be the one.
MAN: What one?
EINSTEIN: THE one. The mate. Mrs. Genius.
MAN: That's cool.
EINSTEIN: She's the best thing that ever came out of the Swiss
Federal Institute of Technology. Just the other day we were
watching the bong water...
MAN: The what?
EINSTEIN: The bong water. You know that water pipe that Dr. Stark
Von Roten-Augen built?
MAN: Oh yeah, that
EINSTEIN: The very same.
MAN: Let me get this straight. You were watching bong water?
EINSTEIN: It's got these little bits of resin and ash in it that
swirl around and around.
MAN: You guys must have been ripped.
EINSTEIN: We were. Anyway we're watching the bong water, and
Mileva says to me, she says "Albert, this is Brownian movement."
And I say, "like yeah? And she says, "Well if the motion of the
molecules of the bong water makes them strike the suspended
molecules of the resin in a random way, there must be a
mathematical solution to the description of their motion that can
be included into normal kinetic theory."
MAN: Dude that blows me away.
EINSTEIN: So she just writes out the equations. Gives 'em to me
MAN: Did you?
EINSTEIN: No man, not yet. Jeez, do you have anything to munch on?
