E pluribus Unum
Mr. Sam: "Good Morning, class."
Class: "Good Morning, Mr. Sam."
Mr. Sam: "For now, you can just call me 'Uncle'."
Darryl: "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."
Mr. Sam bows: "Clarence, what are you doing?"
(Clarence is holding his pet lizard, slowly moving it up and down the wallboard, while holding his ear to the wall.)
Clarence: "We're checking for bugs."
Mr. Sam: "Have you found any?"
Clarence: "No. But that doesn't mean they're not there."
Mr. Sam: "Well, for now, deposit your lizard back in its cage, and put it on the floor by your desk. It's time to launch this Ship of State."
Mr. Sam: "Yesterday we talked about how our nation is like a sturdy oak tree, with three main branches. We discussed the branch we call the Congress. What is the Congress? Suzie?"
Susan: "The Congress is a broad term for the Senate and the House of Representatives. Members of either chamber can write on paper what they want to become a law. But they have to use lawyer talk."
