Being the youngest, Einstein is designated as "it," so he closes his eyes and begins counting.

Pascal runs off and hides behind a fountain, but Newton just takes out a piece of chalk and a tape measure, draws a one-metre by one-metre square on the floor, and steps into it.

Newton just smiles and shakes his head. "No, Albert. You caught Newton over a square metre. You got Pascal."
