Whit, Eugene, Marvin, and Jason work around the clock to get a new invention ready for deployment, even though the task seems like it will be impossible to complete.

Plot

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

When a prototype invention of Whit's shows a new method of teaching, Jason presents it to officials in India. It’s a great ministry opportunity and the officials are willing to use it...if the new technology is ready in just 3 weeks! Will it be possible for Whit and the gang to meet the seemingly impossible deadline?

Notes

  • When they decide to test the Edu-Link with Marvin and he says he gets to be the "Guinea Pig" may be a reference to the Narnia book The Magician's Nephew where Uncle Andrew tests his magic rings on Guinea Pigs.

Reviews

Quotes

John Whittaker: Yes, this deadline may be impossible. But what may be impossible for us, is very possible for God.

Eugene Meltsner: It was already impossible to finish the Edu-link on time. And now it's even impossibler.
Connie Kendall: Eugene, you just used the word impossibler.
Eugene Meltsner: It's a neologism.

Eugene Meltsner: I hereby announce that the Edu-link and all it's components are hereby functioning within their expected norms of capacity.
Marvin Washington: Huh?
Eugene Meltsner: It works!

Marvin Washington: Wow, that was quick!
Connie Kendall: Yup. Eugene's the only one I know who can sleep standing up. Here Marvin; help me get him to the couch.

Marvin Washington: I guess we just saw the impossible happen. Huh, Mr. Whittaker?
John Whittaker: I think we saw something even more important than the impossible, Marvin. I think we discovered there's no such thing.
