Sarah: I really like that joke. You mentioned that there might be a Lawrence Summers related episode? [Girls Just Want to Have Sums]
Jeff: There is. We already had that table read. That was a very difficult episode in some ways, because we wanted to deal with it, but we didn't want to toe any ideologically obvious line either way, so it was hard to come to a satisfying end, but we probably came to an interesting place, I hope. Lisa does a lot of math in that. There certainly were one or two pretty simple math things, because she is after all in second grade. I don't think we did anything really complicated.
Sarah: She's smart, but...
Jeff: Stu (DTB's note: that's J. Stewart Burns) and I wanted to try and shoehorn in the Euler Konigsberg bridge tour problem. So Stu and I spent about a half an hour trying to get that into a simple joke, but didn't manage.
Sarah: Oh... Sorry to hear that.
Jeff: Oh don't give up... We will keep fighting for that somehow or other.
Jeff: So there is that coming up. We have an evolution episode coming up too.
Sarah: When might these appear?
Jeff: These are all season 17, so they'll be appearing probably next spring, I would guess. Stuart wrote the evolution episode. That was really a lot easier to write, to be quite honest. It was much easier to take the correct ideological position on that than the women in math stuff.
