(paintball guns firing) there's no way we can get to the ridge. the chemistry department has us completely cut off. but what about the creek bed? the pharmacology department controls that, and they're all hopped up on experimental steroids. that's it then. we're doomed. i think the time has come to acknowledge that we are paying the price for some of us failing to attend my physics department paintball strategy meeting. i told you my mom has spider veins. i had to take her to the laser clinic. and i told you i wanted to see a doctor's note. we need a plan. how about operation hammer of the gods? i forget. which one is hammer of the gods? we hide behind the dumpsters in the parking lot and ambush people when they come to pee. no go. the dumpsters are deep in astronomy department territory. that shouldn't be a problem. venus is up during the day.
