Haha....the fairly odd parents is a great show and I remember that episode. Timmy writes "2+2=5" on a math test, and the teacher makes fun of him for it. Then Timmy's rich friend Remy hires Stephen Hawking to come into the classroom and prove that 2+2 really does equal 5. The exact quote is:Hawking:
"There are certain scenarios under which the use of pre-transitive imaginary binomials might lead to the result described by Timmy Turner, 2 plus 2 equaling 5."
Of course it's complete nonsense just for comic effect. :) I suppose an "imaginary binomial" would be a binomial with imaginary coefficients, like 3ix3
. But the word "pre-transitive" comes from graph theory and has nothing to do with polynomials.
In that scene, Hawking also quickly writes a "proof" of 2+2=5 on the chalkboard, which is also probably complete nonsense. I can't post a link, cuz I'm new here, but if you wanna see it, go to youtube and search for "remy rides again". (That's the title of the episode.) Once you're viewing the video of the full episode, jump ahead to about 3:15.
