I can probably fake my way through the discussion.  It's amazing how
intelligent you can sound knowing only a few key plot points and maybe a
critical opinion or two.  Of course, this is bad if you come up against
someone who actually *knows* the text in question, but then you just shut up
and listen.  That makes you seem like a genius.

You're not supposed to reveal how I managed to graduate college, dear.
