    I love it how she asks super basic questions - like a child - 'What is a building' and the boffin is actually confused by it and actually CAN'T define a building off the top of his head. It's quite interesting.

      I like how he gets flustered and comes up with a poor definition, and she immediately blows up by asking if her shoe is a building. Even more than her deadpan delivery of deliberately shocking questions, my favorite is how fast she can be to follow up on things and ad lib.

      I can't remeber who said it or the exact words, but basically, to be truly intelligent is being able to explain the most complex of ideas, in the simplest terms. If you explain to a child what a building is and they understand it, that's someone who really understands the concept.

    I love how she asked an obnoxiously (and hilariously) stupid question about time and was given a brilliant answer by Dr. Clark that a lot of people don't actually know, in regards to measuring quartz crystal oscilation. Quartz drift is also fascinating, and that's not even considering relativistic time dilation!

      @DeathnoteBB If I asked a question about a saddle and someone said to put your car in park, would that be semantics, or would they just be wrong?
      To be clear I'm not saying he's wrong about the nature of time. He's obviously an expert on that. But he did give an incorrect answer about the way her watch works.

      @mndmd No, physically speaking there's a difference between "measuring time" IE. by directly observing a time particle if such a thing exists, or by directly observing the dimension of time and seeing where we are, and measuring an effect that indicates the passage of time.
      But it's true he failed to answer the basic question of where the time goes and do we get it back. Like if I spend my money, I know where the money goes and I can get a refund so then I have it back. But if we over-wind the clock, where does that time go and when we wind it back, do we get a time refund? Totally dropped the ball on that one.

      @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air man i feel bad for you, too mathematical and no social skills. convoluted responses to things that dont matter.
      "noone- absolutely NOBODY - knows what 'energy' actually is". yet here you are, trying to be extremely nuanced about a topic we dont yet understand. you see how little sense that makes?

      @ClassicMist360 So what is energy? Is it a 'physical force'? Then what is "potential energy"?
      Nobody knows what "energy" is. Absolutely noone. We describe "energy" as "the ability to do work". But this is only a convenient description, not an understanding of the underlying reality.
      There are times when complicated concepts need thorough explanations, but if it helps you to think of it that way, then that's OK. Some people prefer the big picture. This is such a complex question it wasn't realized in 230,000 years of human thought. It's only been in the last 100 years such a thing was even conceived. Oversimplification often is confusing and inadequate.
      "Mass" is a rather complicated subject, and a debatable topic in physics. After all, "mass" is a measure of energy, yet noone- absolutely _NOBODY_ - knows what "energy" actually is. So how do you sensibly define "mass" without understanding "energy"?

      And I know that way too maybe people assume all the great bits of sitcoms must be improvised... When really they are just well written amd well acted.
      But the people involved here arent actors. And you would be asking your writing staff to have expertise in dozens of fields and the vocal mannerisms of dozens of experts.

      Diane Morgan is one of Britain's most brilliant comedy actresses. Yes there are a team of writers for this but they also said alot of stuff just comes out of Diane's head while filming which catches people off guard or has the crew in stitches. She started as a stand up comic so is very quick witted. Her performances on 'Would I lie to you?' show this better. Her comedy acting in Motherland is superb.
