T-Rex: You know what's a weird number?
T-Rex: SEVEN!
T-Rex: It rhymes with eleven, but it's actually nothing like eleven!
T-Rex: At all!
Utahraptor: They're both prime numbers!
T-Rex: Bah! What is it with primes? It's like the first property of numbers that NERDS care about!
T-Rex: "Lookit me, I'm a nerd. Soon there'll be a prime number of Star Wars movies!"
Label: NERD

I guess he's not a nerd.
