Edana, Research Assistant and Wizard of Oz, prepares for today's lab

Melody gets excited about drinking beer in class

Alan explains that, although he had a six-pack last night, we're not drinking any beer today

Lori comes up with a great idea - "Let's analyze protein in potatoes!"

Toby is pretty sure that potatoes have more protein than sedimentary rocks

David suggests that we all eat potato chips instead of doing lab

Crystal knows better and assures everyone that protein analysis is great fun

Yvonne insists that we analyze protein while eating potato chips and drinking beer

Amy daydreams about her favorite lab - The Hill Reaction - which will be next week

Chang tells the class about his Toyota Camry, that needed a new engine on the day of the test

Tabitha thinks the chemicals next to her desk contain magical formulas for Witches' Brew
