Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century
When drawing this strip, I was pretty much required to include some of that quote in the third panel: "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." It's one of the most legendary quotes in human history, and it originates in Maria's fake mash note. People these days apply it to actually striving for greatness in deeds or reputation, but in its original context, the quote specifically applies to nailing a hottie above your class (not unlike Molly Ringwald trying to bang Andrew McCarthy in "Pretty in Pink." Poor Duckie.)
