Sanctum Stevenorium. Dick Teachie is having a seat. "Have a seat." Teachie starts to talk about religion in school, and Steven's all, "Not only is that on old issue, Danny, it's a relatively boring one." THANK YOU! Now I don't have to recap the rest of this scene. Basically: Steven thinks something more is going on, because Teachie's reaction seems excessive. Teachie admits, "I think I'm losing my way a little, with how to help these kids I see them looking to me for answers, and like I said, they wanna talk about God now, and it's like I'm not equipped, Steven. I feel like all I can do is shrug, and say, 'I don't know, I don't know.' And that I'm scared, too." Steven says that he once had a Latin teacher who talked like he knew Socrates, and Socrates said that admitting you know nothing is the beginning of wisdom. Actually, no, but Steven does say, "I think it's okay if you do that." But Teachie begs to differ. He thinks the kids "need to look at their parents and their teachers, and see that someone's in control a little." Teachie says that he feels selfish about teaching, because it's about feeling like he's making things better for the kids, but lately he feels like he can't give them anything, and that they have to deal, but "when I hear them carrying on about God I feel like they're not dealing. They're not dealing with it." Steven says it's okay to show his fear, because it might help them talk about theirs. "It's just I feel like I'm stealing your money lately." Heh. Steven says don't worry about it, and invites Teachie to help him confront his greatest fear: "Let's go hear Harvey give a speech."
