I love this.
  • Ned Gold: I can't act normal.
  • Principal Jane Masterson: Clearly.
  • Ned Gold: I'm just trying to impress you. I don't come to places like this. I'm a dork. I'm the kind of person who spends $10,000 on Gandalf the Grey's quarterstaff from the Two Towers.
  • Principal Jane Masterson: Yes that does make you a dork. Especially since Gandalf the Grey only appears in Fellowship. He returns in Two Towers as Gandalf the White.
