Dan: On this episode we discuss Victor Frankenstein.
Elliott: Just the guy?
Stuart: Yeah.
Dan: Yeah, we were just like: what's up with him?
Elliott: Hey—
Dan: Haven't seen him since college.
Elliott: I mean, I see him on Facebook, and he's like "Still workin' on this corpse." And I Like it. You know, I don't really like it. But I give him a Like because I feel bad for him.
Stuart: Yeah. It's a pity Like.
Elliott: And he always tags the corpse, and he makes a Facebook page for the corpse. And you're like: dude, if you spent less time on your social media marketing campaign and more time on your studies and your research, maybe you'd have brought that corpse back to life by now. But instead he's got fuckin' Instagram feeds for every project. And it's like—c'mon, stop puttin' like the cart before the corpse. Am I right?
Stuart: Yeah, but he's verified on Instagram now. So…he's got that goin' for him.
Elliott: True.
Stuart: I mean, what do you have to show for it on Instagram?
Elliott: I don't even have an Instagram account.
Dan: Movies!

Not only does the brilliant doctor offer Strausman his friendship, but also a chance to work with him on groundbreaking research that could change the world forever.
