  • The problem began, of course, with the carrots.

  • Carrots are orange and peas are green.

  • They mustn't touch.

  • Do you know why people like violence?

  • It is because it feels...good.

  • Humans find violence deeply satisfying.

  • But remove the-the satisfaction,

  • and the act becomes...hollow.

  • Turing?

  • Come on.

  • Don't be such a kike about it.

  • Leave him to bloody rot.

  • I didn't learn this on my own, of course.

  • I had help.

  • Christopher helped.

  • Alan, are you all right?

  • It's not my fault.

  • The carrots got in with the peas and...

  • I'm sorry. I won't let them do it again.

  • They're getting worse.

  • They only beat me up because I'm smarter than they are.

  • No, they beat you up because you're different.

  • Mother says I'm just an odd duck.

  • And she's right.

  • But you know, Alan,

  • sometimes it's the very people who no one imagines anything of

  • who do the things no one can imagine.

  • What's that you're reading?

  • It's about cryptography.

  • Like secret messages?

  • Not secret.

  • That's the brilliant part.

  • Messages that anyone can see, but no one knows what they mean

  • unless you have the key.

  • How's that different from talking?

  • -Talking? -When people talk to each other, they never say what they mean.

  • They say something else,

  • and you're expected to just know what they mean.

  • Only I never do.

  • So, how's that different?

  • Alan, I have a funny feeling you're going to be very good at this.

  • Good night, Alan.

  • Good night.

  • ...is a rational number,

  • that the square root of two

  • is A over B...

  • where A and B are whole numbers

  • and B is not zero.

  • Mr. Turing, passing notes

  • are we? No, sir.

  • Only Turing would pass notes written in gibberish.

  • All right, gentlemen, do not forget your algebra over the break.

  • Have a pleasant holiday,

  • and we'll resume your irrationals when you return.

  • You wanted to see me, sir?

  • Turing. Sit down.

  • Something the matter?

  • You and Christopher Morcom are quite close.

  • I wouldn't say that.

  • Well, your mathematics teacher says the two of you are positively inseparable.

  • We're the best students in the class.

  • He caught you passing notes the other day.

  • Cryptography, to pass the time. The class is too simple.

  • You and your friend solve maths problems during maths class because the maths class is too dull?

  • He's not my friend.

  • Well, I'm told he's your only friend.

  • Who said that?

  • Something's come up concerning Morcom.

  • Why am I here?

  • Christopher is dead.

  • I don't understand.

  • His mother sent word this morning.

  • The family were on holiday, you see.

  • I don't understand.

  • Well, he had bovine tuberculosis,

  • as I'm sure he told you.

  • So this won't come as a shock, but...

  • still, all the same,

  • I'm sorry.

  • You're mistaken.

  • Did he not tell you?

  • Well, he's been sick for a long time.

  • He knew this was coming soon.

  • But he had a stiff upper lip about it. Good lad.

  • -Are you all right, Turing? -Yes. Of course.

  • Like I said, I didn't know him very well.

  • Ah. I see.

  • Very well.

  • May I leave, Headmaster?

The problem began, of course, with the carrots.
