The MathemaGician Quotes:

  • Humbug: Could you show us the biggest number there is? That will give him something to figure out.

    The MathemaGician: Very well, Sir Humbug. What's the biggest number you can think of?

    Humbug: 9,999,999,000,999 and... nine tenths!

    The MathemaGician: Very good. Now add one to it.

    Humbug: Add one?

    The MathemaGician: Now, add one to that. Add one again. Add one again. Add one again. Add one again.

    Milo: But he'd never be able to stop that way.

    The MathemaGician: Never, for the number you hope for is always at least one higher than the one you had, and that's so large that if you started saying it yesterday, you wouldn't finish until tomorrow.

  • The MathemaGician: You couldn't have one fine day without the one, could you? You couldn't have tea for two without the two, could you? You couldn't have three blind mice without the three... so you see, numbers are the four, five, six, seven, eight wonders of the world!

  • The MathemaGician: Rescue Rhyme and Reason? What a wonderful idea... wait! Has Azaz agreed to it?

    Tock: Yes sir, he has.

    The MathemaGician: Then I don't! We've never agreed on anything and we never will!

    Milo: And if I can prove otherwise, can we have permission to go?

    The MathemaGician: Of course, of course.

    Milo: Very well then. Now - if Azaz agrees with something then you disagree, correct?

    The MathemaGician: Correct.

    Milo: And anything Azaz disagrees with, you agree, is that correct?

    The MathemaGician: Correct.

    Milo: Then each of you agrees that he will disagree with the other, right?

    The MathemaGician: Right.

    Milo: Then you admit that you do agree with Azaz about something - you agree about disagreeing!

    The MathemaGician: I'VE BEEN TRICKED!
