1. “Hey, who dropped that condenser out on the floor in front of my hood? That looks just like the one I had on my reaction flask. . .”
2. “How come the toxicology people haven’t called me about our lead compound yet? Two-week tox finished a while ago, and usually they’re a lot faster than this. . . “
3. “Is there any active aluminum compound left in this reaction or what? I keep dripping methanol into it to quench it, and nothing’s going on at all so far. . .”
4. “Who’s going to scale up our candidate compound, anyway? We need 300 grams of the stuff, and the scale-up group is booked solid. . .”
5. “So, is this the high-pressure hydrogen line or the low-pressure one that I’m opening?”
6. “I wonder what the error bars are on that behavioral assay. . .”
