00:03:24Oww ohh.
00:03:26!
00:03:29Actually, it's quite easy.
00:03:31We simply rebuild the ship's mainframe using quilbert's theory of engineering.
00:03:37 fusing the j-peg quadrant with a frequency modulator.
00:03:40 apply centrifugal force gently to the fuselage.
00:03:44<All> WHAT?!
00:03:46<Jackie> I DON'T BELIEVE IT! THAT DONUT Must have jarred their circuits and made them smart!
00:03:50 if you're so smart, put the wreaker back together so we can get out of here!

00:10:37Okay. one bolt - one donut.
00:10:40<Jackie> ONE DONUT FOR ONE BOLT, NO WAY!
00:10:43<Inez> HOLD ON, IF FOUR BOLTS ARE WORTH ONE Donut- and we only want one bolt- then it should only cost one fourth of a donut!
00:10:52Hmmm, that sounds reasonable. I'll take it.
00:10:58A quarter of a donut for the bolt.
00:11:01You have a donut cutter down there?
00:11:06<Matt> ONE QUARTER OF ONE DONUT... FOR ONE Bolt!

00:16:30<Inez> IS IT RARE?
00:16:31<Oddman> OH, YEE-EEEES! IT'S WORTH AT LEAST...I Mean, it's worth about twenty regular donuts.
00:16:38So how many chocolate donuts will it take to pay for the battery?
00:16:42If one chocolate donut is worth twenty plain ..
00:16:46Then that means we only need five chocolate donuts to buy the battery! let's go!

00:17:19We're not a donut factory!
00:17:20<Jackie> WE FOUND THAT A CHOCOLATE DONUT Is worth twenty plain ones - so we only need five chocolates.

00:22:45<Matt> WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ELECTRO-ROOT.
00:22:47<Marbles> WELL BECAUSE EVERYONE WAS SO KIND To me, I allowed a certain individual to borrow it for a while.
00:22:53<Ape> OOH-OOH-OOH...

00:22:56<Inez> A LOAN OF THE ELCTRO-ROOT FOR YOUR Safety and well being, sounds like bartering to me.
00:23:06Stay right where you are - it's cyberchase for real.
00:23:23A gold coin! I'm rich!
00:23:35 I wonder how much I could get for it?
00:23:41I could be rich! I could buy anything I want!
00:23:44I could be so rich I could buy things I don't want!
00:23:49I could get my nails done!
00:23:58Coins, coins, coins.
00:24:04<Woman> HELLO!
00:24:06<Bianca> HI! I HAVE A GOLD COIN AND I'D LIKE To know what it is.
00:24:10 let's go and sit down, then.
00:24:15<Bianca> HERE IT IS.
00:24:16<Woman> IT'S A SACAGAWEA DOLLAR, MINTED In philadelphia in 2000.
00:24:23But, what's it worth?
00:24:26It's worth four quarters, 10 dimes, 20 nickels, 100 pennies, or a dollar bill.
00:24:3200, but not more.
00:24:36It's not gold? I'm not rich?
00:24:40<Woman> NO, I'M SORRY, IT ONLY LOOKS LIKE Gold.
00:24:43It's a mixture of metals.
00:24:44This, on the other hand, is a $20 gold piece from 1908.
00:24:49Back then this coin was madefrom gold worth $20.
00:24:53Most coins were made of goldand silver then.
00:25:01This one is one of the first coins, a lydian gold coin.
00:25:05It was made almost 3,000 years ago.
00:25:07They all weighed about the sameand had a marking on the front so you could tell it's real.
00:25:13It was small enough to put in your pocket, and people could use them to buy whatever they wanted.
00:25:17Was all money silver or gold back then?
00:25:19<Woman> WELL, LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING Else.
00:25:30Well, people made money from things that are worth something, that are valuable.
00:25:34For example, this is a block of tea from china, which was used as currency.
00:25:40Or, this is a copper plate from sweden, which was also used as money.
00:25:43<Bianca> WOW! I WOULDN'T WANT TO CARRY ONE Of these around.
00:25:46<Woman> NO ONE WOULD, BUT YOU COULD PUT It in a bank, and the bank would give you a piece of paper that represented the same value as the plate.
00:25:54Did we do that in this country too?
00:25:56<Woman> YES, WE DID.
00:25:57Here are some bills that could be traded in for gold.
00:26:00<Bianca> IT KIND OF LOOKS LIKE THE MONEY We use.
00:26:02 can I trade my money in for gold?
00:26:05 now our money is valuable because people around the world agree that dollar has worth, and they use it to buy and sell, just like people used gold coins 3000 years ago.
00:26:15Though your sacagawea dollar is not gold, it's still worth a dollar.
00:26:21<Bianca> THANKS!
00:26:30<Man> A GOLD COIN! I'M RICH!
