    "Ah, you know what I love about you? You're just you. And we saw that by the way you did the candy-striping thing at the local hospital after school, along with varsity soccer and a job bagging groceries at the market. Wow. Just wow. I love you and now America loves you, too!"

    "Okaaay. Right. To be honest, I didn't think your scores on your SAT II were very good..." (Audience: Boo!) "Well, they weren't, if I'm going to be honest. Your essay was atrocious. Atrocious! I'll tell you what it reminded me of: It was like a student off the short bus writing about his summer vacation between third and fourth grade. Sorry. Not good. At all. Pack your Jansport. You're going back home to Iowa this week."

    That was absolutely hilarious phat.

    Umm, and is it some state secret as to which Ivy League schools Peter and Shawn work for? I guess since Marquesa works for a mere state school (albeit a very, very good one) it's okay to reveal her school.

    Thanks museumguy. I was just too lazy to google. Did his information say how long he'd been at Berkeley? I'm wondering if he moved there after the show was filmed.
