Wild Linguists

Much-maligned author Dan Brown is one of the few lay people who shows a proper appreciation for linguists, but not the only one. I just turned on the TV (purely for research purposes, of course) and came upon an episode of Friends. Ross was explaining why he wouldn't cancel his date for the evening:

She's an Assistant Professor in the Linguistics Department. They're WILD!
So there.
