The scene: Abby had a MAJOR HUGE science project in December that took up a lot of her time. Of course, that didn't mean she stayed caught up on her work... so the night before it was due (incidentally, the last night before Winter Break), she pulled a very late-nighter (not an all-nighter. Just stayed up until like midnight or something) and was pretty tired and stressed by the time science class rolled around the next day. You need to know that because otherwise, mints and a movie in class would probably not mean much. :)
Abby: Dude, Butcher gave us mints and let us watch the Princess Bride.
Abby: Haven't seen it since I was little and now I like understand.
