Dean Smith: Do you think this elective would fit in this program?
Dean Jones: Yeah, probably.
Dean Smith: Thanks.
Four Weeks Ago:
Dean Smith: Thanks for taking the lead on this with the curriculum committee. Dean Jones said the elective looks fine.
Prof. W: No problem. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Dean Jones: Huh?
