REG: We keep giving plant scientists all this money for research. And what have they ever given us in return?!
XERXES: The laws of genetic inheritance?
XERXES: The laws of genetic inheritance.
REG: Oh. Yeah, yeah. They did give us that. Uh, that's true. Yeah.
COMMANDO #3: And the concept of a cell.
LORETTA: Oh, yeah, the the concept of the cell, Reg. Remember before biological structures we thought of in cells?
REG: Yeah. All right. I'll grant you the laws of genetic inheritance and the concept of a cell are two things that the plant scientists have done.
MATTHIAS: And the Green Revolution.
REG: Well, yeah. Obviously the Green Revolution. I mean, the being able to grow enough food for everyone to live goes without saying, doesn't it? But apart from the laws of genetic inheritance, the concept of a cell, and the Green Revolution--
COMMANDO: RNA interference.
XERXES: Anti-malaria medication.
COMMANDOS: Huh? Heh? Huh...
COMMANDO #2: DNA methylation maintenance.
REG: Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.
COMMANDO #1: And Optogenetics.
COMMANDOS: Oh, yes. Yeah...
FRANCIS: Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss, Reg, if Plant Scientists stopped. Huh.
COMMANDO: Gene imprinting.
LORETTA: And don’t forget about understanding receptors in the innate immune system, Reg.
FRANCIS: Yeah, they certainly know how to figure complex things out. Let's face it. They're the only ones who could figure this stuff out.
COMMANDOS: Hehh, heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
REG: All right, but apart from the laws of genetic inheritance, the concept of a cell, the Green Revolution, Anti-malaria medication, RNA interference, DNA methylation maintenance, Optogenetics, Gene imprinting, and understanding receptors in the innate immune system, what have Plant Scientists ever done for us?
XERXES: Transposable elements.
REG: Oh. Transposable elements? Shut up!
*My script originally ended with: Advances in the Ubiquitin Cycle, rather than Transposable elements, but I thought that Transposable elements was a better ending.
