Summary: How Charlie chose his mentor.

Dr. Fleinhardt. Lawrence. Larry.

There was something about him that made Charlie feel safe the first time Larry started addressing the quantum physics seminar. Later on he’d learn it was empathy. Larry was a former teenage prodigy addressing Princeton’s latest 13 year old genius.

Without that background, there was nothing to rely on but feelings, and those were always unreliable. He decided it was Larry’s flannel shirt. The plaid fabric was clearly well-worn, and Charlie knew instinctively how soft it would be to the touch; a possible source of comfort and solace.

Larry’s shirt made him miss Don even more.
