Unfortunatley for her, he appears to be very gay.  Not even a side-glance at her cleavage!

Also, what the hell is wrong with their index fingers?

At first I was like

but then I smiled a little

and had my intern drink the drug in the flask, and now she's like

and some of my colleagues are jealous

but others are thinking of stealing my idea.

I will say that making gold nanospheres really does look like the way SCIENCE! looks on TV.

Starts out with a faint off y ellow solution (Diluted Chloroauric acid. Basically gold salts created by dissolving gold in aqua regia, then reducing the aqua regia). You boil it, add a clear (Sodium Citrate) solution. The solution turns clear, then *black*, then slowly fades to some shade of red (depending on the concentrations of the solutions used) that always really, REALLY makes me crave fruit punch koolaid.

I had a friend in grad school who had worked for an NIH lab.  He said that they kept a rack of vials and beakers full of various Kool-Aids in the back of the lab for whenever movie/documentary makers would come by.  If they needed generic "Science in action" scenes, they'd drag out the Kool-Aid and start pipetting it from one container to another.

Also popular:  Old school sequencing gels.  Those gel slabs were enormous, so having big green bands of dye visible on them was a nice visual.

The world of stock photography is an interesting one. One day I'm going to talk to a stranger who is a stock photographer. We will become friends. Then one day I'll go to his studio and do mundane things in ridiculous costumes and make tens of dollars for my modeling.

*Paper's Author*" Oh, you have to do that under a nitrogen blanket."

Grad Student: "... That is not mentioned ANYWHERE IN THE PAPER."

Author: "Yes, but it's just assumed in *field X, which the author comes from*"

A grad student, a postdoc, and a professor are walking through a city park
on their way to lunch and they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a
Genie comes out in a puff of smoke.

The Genie says, "I will only grant 3 wishes, so i will give each of you just one."

"Me first!" screams the grad student. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a
speedboat with a gorgeous woman."

Poof! He's gone.

"Me next!" screams the postdoc. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach
with a professional volleyball player on one side and a Mai Tai on the other."

Poof! She's gone.

"You're next," the Genie says to the professor.

The professor says, "I want those two back in the lab after lunch."

That reminds me of most of the organic chemistry i did as a lab assistant just after uni. It was

1. Dissolve white powder into a solvent
2. Add 2nd white powder
3. Wait for a bit
4. Separate out product with separating column
5. Evaporate off solvent
6. Finish with white powder

Let's be fair, much much much of what many of us do does not actually require gloves or goggles.  And I spend a lot of time staring in to little tubes just like in the pictures.  You get to the point where you do the math in your head and say "oh, this TTX's LD50 is 300ug/kg, average person is 70kg, so that's ~21mg.  This ttx comes in a 1mg ampule, so I'd need to eat 21 of them straight to have a 50/50 shot of dying.  The tube i'm using is dilluted to 1mM and it's only 100uL...  Why waste time going to get gloves?  I'll just thaw the tube in my mouth while I'm prepping my ringer."
The only thing that's not real about this statement is that we keep our TTX at 4°C in a stock solution, so we don't actually have to thaw little tubes.
Honestly, 99% of what goes on in my lab is about as dangerous as gatorade.
speaking of which, time to get back to my protocol...
