After reading about how Gadget's character was partially inspired by Michelle Meyrink's Jordan from the 1985 movie Real Genius, I watched a clip to see how similar the characters really are...
You'll find the answer at about 1:16
Mitch: Are you okay?
Jordan: No, not emotionally, no, I'm not. I'm disappointed, not terribly, but still. It should have gone much further, much faster. It's okay, though, I know what the problem is. It's obviously the drag coefficient. I'll just have to redesign the blades. I can do that no problem. I can do that here. But after they're designed I got to cut them and that takes tools and time. Do you know how long this stuff is supposed to last?
Ick: Maybe another half an hour?
Jordan: Oh that's great, that's good, I can do that no problem. Okay, what's your name?
Jordan: Oh, thank you for your help, Mitch. Okay I'll see you later.
Mitch: You're welcome! Who was that?
Ick: That? Oh, that was...
Jordan: I'm Jordan. I forgot to tell you my name, I'm Jordan. I heard there was going to be someone new this term. Are you it?
Jordan: Do you have a bed?
Jordan: I was going to make you one if you didn't have one, but you have one. Okay, I'll see you later. Okay, bye.
I never sleep, I don't know why. I had a roommate and I drove her nuts, I mean really nuts, they had to take her away in an ambulance and everything. But she's okay now, but she had to transfer to an easier school, but I don't know if that had anything to do with being my fault. But listen, if you ever need to talk or you need help studying just let me know, 'cause I'm just a couple doors down from you guys and I never sleep, okay?I'm hyperkinetic and guys don't find me attractive. I guess if I ever stopped to think about it, I'd be upset.
