Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding
RAY: Now, as a public service paid for by the Philanthropic Council to Make Things Nicer, we invite you to spend another educational session with the idol of the nation's youngsters--Mr. Science. As we look in on the modern, well-equipped laboratory today, we see that little Jimmy Schwab is just arriving to watch Mr. Science perform his latest fascinating experiment.
(Sound: Door slam)
MR. SCIENCE: Oh, hello there, Jimmy. You're just in time to watch me perform my latest fascinating experiment.
JIMMY: Gee willikers, Mr. Science. I'm always fascinated by your fascinating experiments. Which one are you going to perform today?
MR. SCIENCE: Well, Jimmy, today we're going to observe what happens when we boil water right here in the laboratory.
JIMMY: Great day in the morning, Mr. Science! . . . I don't understand what you're talking about.
MR. SCIENCE: Well, it's really not as complicated as it sounds. You see, each chemical property has its own particular temperature point at which it changes from a liquid to a gas. And loosely defined, steam is the form of gaseous vapor that water is converted into when we heat it to 212 degrees.
JIMMY: Holy mackerel, Mr. Science. I don't understand that even worse than what you said the first time.
MR. SCIENCE: Well, don't worry about it, son. I'm sure it'll all become very clear to you after you've observed today's experiment. Now, in order to see what happens when we bring water to the boiling point, we must first prepare our laboratory equipment to heat it to 212 degrees.
JIMMY: Gosh-all hemlock, Mr. Science. What's that piece of laboratory equipment you're lighting with a match?
MR. SCIENCE: This device is called a candle, Jimmy.
JIMMY: A candle! Holy suffering catfish. Wait'll I tell all the kids at school I've seen one of those.
MR. SCIENCE: Now, just try to keep your enthusiasm under control, boy. We still haven't gotten to the most amazing part. Watch what
