Mentor: Find the green danger knife, it's not where it is supposed to be
Student: If something is called the danger knife shouldn't it be put back in the correct spot.

Immediately after bagging the robot:

"Did we make sure all the students were out of the bag first?"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

“Why are you drinking root beer off a table?”
(It spilled, so there was some of it dripping off the table, and they had spoons... Yeah.)
Me: “Are we going to have to explain to [Mentor] why you were drinking root beer off the table?”
Student: “No, we don’t need to explain. Don’t tell him anything.”
M: “He’s right there!”
S: “Oh. Hi [Mentor]!”

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

My personal version of Murphy's Law: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and anything that can't will go wrong anyway."

A sign that used to be in the hall, right outside where the programmers worked on the test robot: "Caution: programmer habitat. Programmers are easily frightened by humans; observe them from a distance."

When we put the robot on the scale for the first time during Week 5:
"If we just vacuum all the chips out we'll make weight!"
