In this case, though, Mr. Hitchens (Captain Ahab) extolls the virtues of literature in the middle of a calculus study session. In addition to Moby Dick, he sings about Of Mice and Men and Lord of the Flies. There's even a mention of Shakespeare:

This is PRICELESS! I had so much fun watching I ran it twice, Tabatha. Aren't high school kids just the best! So much enthusiasm and energy-makes me happy to see. I just saw a former student a couple of weeks ago in their school musical, loved it. There are some talented kids at your daughter's school! Thanks!
