Hurlbut: I Think, Lisa, That You've Been Taken In By An Obvious Forgery.

Hurlbut: I think, Lisa, that you've been taken in by an obvious
forgery. Unfortunately, historical research is plagued by
this sort of hoax -- the so-called confession. It's just
as fake as the Howard Hughes will, the Hitler Diaries, or the
Emancipation Retraction.
Lisa: But it explains why there's no record of Jebediah Springfield
before 1796. He was Hans Sprungfeld until then.
Hurlbut: That's preposterous. Get out! You're banned from this
historical society! You, and your children, and your
children's children -- for three months.
