Howard walked Sal through the rest of the list of wars, and asked more questions. Sal said Italy was an American ally during World War II, and that Mussolini was "a good guy." Howard informed Sal that Mussolini was a fascist dictator and then asked which states were the last to join the union. Sal answered, "Puerto Rico and Hawaii." Sal also claimed that "we bombed the Japs in Pearl Harbor" and we dropped the nuclear bomb on "Saigon and Pai Gow."
Sal thought that "President Gettysburg" gave the Gettysburg Address, but then decided that Abraham Lincoln gave the Address. Howard asked Sal what the "D." in Franklin D. Roosevelt stood for, so Sal said, "Delaware." Howard consoled Sal, telling him, "Everyone has their weak subjects. Yours just happen to be all of them." Sal replied that he was good at science, and he was even able to answer a few science questions correctly.
