The Waterboy

Character mistake: In the short scene where Bobby is standing in front of his class holding a large molecule, the diagram of the molecule can be seen on the blackboard. In part of this diagram a carbon atom 'C' can be seen bonded to five other atoms. As all good chemists know however, carbon can only form four bonds and so this molecule could not possibly exist.

Suggested correction: The carbon/four bonds statement is wrong. CH5 is methanium. That's five hydrogen atoms bonded to one carbon.
