“Me a nuclear scientist? That’s ridiculous. Yeah, I know the story’s out. But it isn’t true. Here’s what happened. I majored in drama at Washington University but had to take a science course. I signed up for physical science but the card got mixed up and I wound up taking nuclear science. Now everyone thinks I’m a nuclear scientist. Oh, I passed the class all right. It wasn’t too difficult.” — Dorothy Provine
