Greg Hancock & Patrick Curran

The episode begins with what Patrick believes will be a discussion of statistics in the news, but then turns into a surprise attack by Greg that rapidly devolves into a second edition of Pop Quiz (covering scales of measurement, probability and odds, intraclass correlation, null hypothesis significance testing, suppression, and Bayes' Theorem). In addition to relentlessly attacking each others' credibility, the Quantidudes mention Waldo, Flat Stanley, "and so uhhhhh," Max Headroom, Matt Damon, The Maltese Falcon, dead kittens, The Hunger Games, The Dad Rule, doppelgangers, eye twitches, pregnancy tests, and Costco caskets.
