Erikson: OR! Or to be a fighter pilot because…
Pebbles: (To Erikson) Wait! You want to be a legit fighter pilot?
Erikson: (Indistinguishable explanation)

Pebbles: Okay, so in the fields you want to work in, do you a place for women in that?
Raphael: Oh, hell ye! [The arts] is an industry run by women!
Erikson: What do you mean? All the males are stupid… Its kinda—
Raphael: No! Most of the STEM fields are usually male dominated. Its ridiculous.
Erikson: No, but its mostly, like, computers…
Raphael: Yeah, still mostly male-dominated. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs…
Pebbles: But, Erikson, Do you think that women belong on those fields or they can achieve greatness there?
Erikson: Because they’re people.
Pebbles: Okay… That’s a pretty valid answer.
Raphael: (Laughs) Valid. Valid.
Pebbles: So, who is your hero? Who do you look up to…?
