So, Lily saw my copy of Ahistory, a book that covers history of the Doctor Who universe. It has a picture of the Mona Lisa on the cover. She gave remarkably detailed recap of the Doctor Who episode, City of Death, which first aired in 1979, when I was not quite five years old myself.
"The bad guy went back in time and made the guy who painted the Mona Lisa, I forget his name, paint some extra copies, but the Doctor went back in time too and wrote 'This is Fake' in felt tip pen on the canvas for the paintings. But then there's a fire and the only Mona Lisa that survives is one of the ones that has 'This is a Fake' on it."
That's some impressive geekery right there.
