Did I Miss Anything Important?

The computer science class that I'm taking has a lab session on Monday mornings from 8am - 11am. Unfortunately, I teach MWF during the 9:00 class block. So today I went to lab for the first hour, went to go teach my class, and then came back (after detouring to my office to pick up the charger for my laptop and my clicker receiver).

On my return I asked the guy sitting next to me, "What did I miss?"

He said, "They said that strdup calls malloc so we should use valgrind to check for memory leaks."

I sort of wonder what my students would say if they summarized an hour of my class into one sentence.
