Quote #10

His brows are knit and his lips move painfully. "Hex, little two up in the air, cross and a fiddle-de-dee. Lord! what a one he was for intellect!" (Epilogue.7)

After Kemp and Griffin go on about science for the whole book, The Invisible Man ends with someone who doesn't understand science at all. But you'll notice that even though Griffin has shown himself to be off his rocker, Marvel still thinks that he's something of a scientific genius. Being a good scientist and being a good person clearly aren't one and the same.
