Ginger: Did you see that?!
Ruby: No. What was it?
Ginger: Never mind – what about that one!! Did you see that one?!
Ginger: That’s okay – did you see that?!
Ruby: Ginger, honey, they’re fireworks. It’s hard to miss them.
Ginger: Oooh! Look at that one!
Ginger: Wow! Did you see that one?! With the baboom-crickle-crickle-fzzzt?
Ginger: That was my math skills…oh! Look – you can see my history lessons!!
Ruby: …wait, what?
Ginger: Don’t fireworks remind you of the inside of your brain? Pieces of your education and memories light up for a brief moment and then fizzle out to allow a different piece light up and explode all over the place?
Ruby: …huh. That explains a lot.
Ginger: Oh! Hey – that was magnesium!
Ruby: …your memory of magnesium?
Ginger: No, the firework used a lot of magnesium. That’s why it sparkled like that.
Ruby: …fireworks take on an entirely new set of mind-games with you, Ginger.
Ginger: Also, it did kind of remind me of my chemistry class…huh. Weird. Hey – look! The pretty red one!!
Ruby: Do you know what chemical made it red?
Ginger: The Pythagorean Theorem!
Ruby: …can you tell me what that is?
Ginger: A2 + B2 = C2
Ruby: Then…yes. That was the Pythagorean Theorem. That’s what makes it red.
Ginger: Look over there! That green one!
Ruby: Is it representative of photosynthesis?
Ginger: What? No. It’s just a pretty green firework.
Ruby: Just when I think I get a handle on how your brain might process things…
Ginger: …you realize it’s just a pretty lightshow with the acrid smell of smoke lingering in the air?
Ruby: …Happy Fourth of July, Ginger.
Ginger: Happy Independence Day, Ruby! Now that we’ve overthrown the Alliance, let’s go watch Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith destroy an alien race with nearly antiquated technology now!
Ruby: You had to work in a Firefly reference, didn’t you?
Ginger: Well, we are the Independents, Ruby. And we won.
Ruby: You know the Independents were a parallel to the Civil War, right?
Ginger: Yeah. But I like it when we win.
Ruby: Let’s just go watch Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum destroy the alien race. We win in that one…
