from the Phase One box set.
[Scene: Tony Stark and Yinsen in the cave.]
YINSEN: [carving wood] Hey, Stark. Guess what I’m making?
TONY: If I’d have to venture a guess, I’d say a crappy backgammon board.
YINSEN: This is Lebanese cedar.
TONY: Oh, I thought you were Persian.
YINSEN: I’m impressed you even know what this is. Tell you what, when I finish making it, I’ll teach you how to play.
TONY: That’ll be swell. I’m a little rusty since I haven’t played since I was backgammon champ four years running at MIT.
YINSEN: Really? Interesting, I was the champ at Cambridge.
TONY: Did you just say “interesting” and “Cambridge” in the same sentence? I think that’s an oxymoron. Was that even a school?
YINSEN: It’s a university, and you probably haven’t heard of it because Americans can’t get in.
TONY: Right, unless you’re teaching.
