Since when? If all As are less than B's, aren't most of said A's also less than B's?
No, ALL of them are. "Most" implies that some aren't. If there's any room for uncertainty, then you can't assume that "most" actually means "all." It's like saying most people score below a 170. That doesn't mean everyone scores below a 170. It means some people score above or at a 170, but most people score below a 170.

During college I worked in an electronics store and that episode was in heavy repeat rotation and the sales people in the TV department would tune all 100+ TV's to the channel every time it came on and make announcements over the store PA system to alert everyone. That was really embarrassing, especially since all the customers, including ones I was trying to sell a car stereo to at the time would rush over to the TV's.
