  • Stephen demonstrates that he is very good at learning and uses newly learned skills to further his education.
  • Stephen asks The Ancient One how to “get from here to there” referring to becoming a powerful sorcerer. The Ancient One asks him “how did you become a doctor?” and Stephen answers “study and practice” and gets his answer.
