[Hydrogen and Carbon are sitting on Carbon’s bed.]
Carbon: The lanthanides, Hydro! There are fifteen of them? They live on the basement floor?
[Hydrogen turns away, a hand to her chin in thought.]
Carbon: They’re all metals? Atomic numbers 57 to 71? Lanthanum, Cerium, Praseodymium…
[Hydrogen continues thinking, but she got nothin’.]
[Hydrogen turns back to Carbon.]
Hydrogen: Never heard of them.
Carbon: Didn’t you give a speech about this?
