Holtzmann revealed she was home schooled and served as class president after beating her siblings. Kevin added he didn't go to school but learned you had to believe in yourself or no one else would.

He began juggling the Proton Grenade despite their warnings. He thought they were kidding. Abby told him to hand it to her. He tossed it up in the air and walked back to his desk. Abby caught it to everyone's relief. Patty wondered how something so dumb got in something so pretty. Abby handed the grenade to Holtzmann and warned her she should lock it up. Holtzmann asked what the criteria was for "lock up." She believed instant liquefication was suitable. Abby emphasized somewhere he couldn't find it. Holtzmann, in a voice, joked about locking it up. Patty wondered how they weren't going to die because of her or Kevin. Holtzmann continued joking if the world blew up, it was her fault.
