"One of my committee members used to be an emergency room nurse. She's used to triage!"
"I don't expect the yellow brick road. This is much more like hazing. I'm a former athlete...preseason conditioning is going to be a bitch, no matter what!"
"What do you call a doctoral student who graduates at the bottom of their class?"
