dad gets defensive

Dad: You shouldn’t downplay traditional Chinese medicine, Jane. Some practitioners can lay their fingers on your wrist and tell if you’re pregnant or not.

Jane: I don’t believe that’s true at all.

Dad: You know what you are? You’re anti-science, just like the people who locked up Galileo.

Jane: Excuse me? Are you comparing me to the guys who burnt witches at the stake?

Zhao: I think, maybe Dad meant to compare you to people who deny tenure.

Jane: Which in academia, is still equivalent to death.
