Can you, for a moment, imagine how dispiriting it is to teach five centuries of masculine ineptitude? History’s not such a frolic for women as it is for men. Why should it be? They never get round the conference table. In 1919, for instance, they just arranged the flowers then gracefully retired. History is a commentary on the various and continuing incapabilities of men. What is history? History is women following behind with the bucket.

Mrs. Lintott, The History Boys

I hate how Irwin and Dakin just laughed after Mrs. Lintott said this amazing dialogue. UGH!
