Cake Decorator: Hey, aren`t you that kid from Crocodile Tears?
Sandy Lyle: That`s right. I`m Sandy Lyle.
Cake Decorator: Man I saw that movie in high school. That bagpipes scene, that was the funniest shit.
Sandy Lyle: Yeah, we had a good time on that picture. You want an autograph?
Cake Decorator: No, thanks. It`s good to see you man. I thought you died like fifteen years ago.
Sandy Lyle: No. I`m very much alive, my friend.
Senator Kelly: I have here a list of names of identified mutants living right here in the United States.
Dr. Jean Grey: Senator...
Senator Kelly: Here`s a girl in Illinois who can walk through walls. Now what`s to stop her from walking into a bank vault, or the White House, or
(indicating the gallery)
Senator Kelly: into their houses?
Dr. Jean Grey: Senator, please...
Senator Kelly: ...and there are even rumors, Miss Grey, of mutants so powerful that they can enter our minds and control our thoughts, taking away our God-given free will. Now I think the American people deserve the right to decide if they want their children to be in school with mutants. To be taught by mutants! Ladies and gentlemen, the truth is that mutants are very real, and that they are among us. We must know who they are, and above all, what they can do!
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Ah, Logan. I`d like you to meet Ororo Monroe, also called Storm. This is Scott Summers, also called Cyclops. They saved your life. I believe you already know Dr. Jean Grey. You are in my School for the Gifted for Mutants. You`ll be safe here from Magneto.
Wolverine: What`s a Magneto?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: A very powerful mutant. He believes that a war is brewing between mutants and the rest of humanity. I`ve been following his activities for some time. The man who attacked you is an associate of his called Sabertooth.
(looks at Storm)
(looks at Xavier)
Wolverine: What do they call you? "Wheels"? This is the stupidest thing I`ve ever heard. Students.
Magneto: Does it ever wake you in the middle of the night? The feeling that one day they will pass that foolish law or one just like it and come for you? And your children?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: It does indeed.
Magneto: What do you do, when you wake up to that?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: I feel a great swell of pity for the poor fool who comes to that school... looking for trouble.
Willy Beachum: It happens right? People wake up, it`s not impossible.
Resident: What`re you gonna do, keep asking the same question different ways so you get the answer you want?
Willy Beachum: (shrugs) I guess. That’s what I do.
Resident: Hm, I knew I should`ve gone to law school.
Jane Jetson: Elroy, why aren`t you ready for school?
Elroy Jetson: I don`t feel good, Mom. I think... I think I`m coming down with Venus Virus.
Jane Jetson: Venus Virus, eh? Last week you said it was Martian Mumps. Anything to get out of taking that space calculus test.
Detective Nash: (walking up to the desk) Hey Winn.
Detective Winn: That`s Detective Winn to you, kid.
Detective Nash: (hands over the fax) This just came for you... What?
(as Winn grabs the phone)
Fuller: (on the phone) Fuller here.
Detective Winn: This is Detective Winn with the Bridge Port PD. I`m calling about a fax concerning the escape of Richard Fenton. What the hell is going on?
Fuller: Yes, sir! Detective, we just received word from the hospital of Fenton`s escape on Wednesday evening.
Detective Winn: (outraged) Why did it take three God damn days to notify us?
Fuller: Sorry, sir. I needed to notify the board.
Detective Winn: Damn! I don`t believe this!
Detective Nash: What is it?
Detective Winn: (walking around, gathering files) This is a case I had three years ago. High school teacher, he got crazy obsessed with a female student. They fired him, that didn`t stop him. And then when the family got a restraining order against him, he went psycho. She got home from the movies, he didn`t know she was there. She hid under the bed and had to watch him kill her mother. We arrested that son of bitch at his house. We found journals of this guy having fantasies about this girl. He had pictures of her everywhere.
Kate Holbrook: So... How long have you two been together?
Angie Ostrowiski: We met the summer after I discontinued high school, and we`ve been together ever since.
Angie Ostrowiski: He never officially asked me to be his wife but he never asked me to not be his wife either so, this are going pretty good.
Arthur Leigh Allen: Oh. "The Most Dangerous Game."
Inspector William Armstrong: What?
Arthur Leigh Allen: "The Most Dangerous Game." That`s why you`re here isn`t it? It was my favorite book in high school. It`s about this man who waits for these people to get shipwrecked on this island. Because he was tired of hunting animals, he hunted the people for the challenge.
Dave Toschi: And man is the most dangerous animal of all?
Arthur Leigh Allen: That`s the whole point of the story.
Mama Boucher: You gonna lose all your fancy "fools` balls" games! And your gonna fail your big exam! Because school is?
Bobby Boucher: The devil?
Bobby Boucher: Everything is the devil to you, Mama! Well, I like school, and I like football! And I`m gonna keep doin` them both because they make me feel good!
Bobby Boucher: (Bobby runs out, slamming the door, then comes back in) And by the way, Mama. "Alligators" are ornery `cause of their "Medula Oblongata"!
Bobby Boucher: (Bobby runs back out, then back in again) And I like Vicki, and she like me back! And she showed me her boobies and I like them too!
(slams door on Mama)
(Bridget walks downstairs dressed in tight pants and a short shirt)
Paul: Uh, Bridget, why are you dressed like that?
Kerry: Must be casual sex day at school.
Bridget: Hey, at least I get...
(Paul turns to Bridget)
Bridget: ...Look good.
Paul: Okay, Cupcake, I think you missed the word "under" in underwear because I can see your bra and that slingshot your wearing under your pants.
Bridget: It`s a thong.
Paul: It`s floss.
Bridget: I can`t wear anything else. Panty lines - Hello?
Paul: Panty lines - Hello, are fine. Actually they were a pretty big deal in my day.
Bridget: Well, we`re the thong generation.
Paul: Well, maybe that`s why your generation is so angry. Your always walking around with a wedgie!
Cate: (reading Paul`s last article) Okay readers, today we`re having a little pop quiz, it`s multiple choice, so sharpen your number 2 pencils and put your thinking caps on. Ready? Here`s a quote: "Dad, you`re an idiot." Now, contestants, this was said to me because of which of the following transgressions? A: Coming to the breakfast table wearing pajamas and black socks? B: Asking my oldest daughter if that guy I saw her talking to yesterday at school was her boyfriend? C: Referring to rapper Fiddy Cent as "Fifty Cents"? or D: Entering the room? Okay, pencils down. Actually it was a trick question. The answer is all of the above. Now do you know how many times I called my father an idiot? Zero. Why? Because I feared him. Back then we didn`t share our deep personal feelings, our deepest conversations usually revolved around the tigers bull pen. But my kids, I can`t get them to shut up! There`s not a feeling that my kids are afraid to express over and over and over. And my wife reassures me this is a good thing over and over and over, and she`s always right. So do I wish that my kids feared me? Well my house would be quieter, and I`d spend a lot less time in the bathroom, but no. Because I know that whenever they insult me whether it`s a "You`re an idiot," "You`re a geek," or an "I hate you," an "I love you" isn`t far behind. And it`s the knowledge that my wife and kids love me that makes it safe for me to wear pajamas and black socks to the breakfast table.
(after the kids start complaining about "police school")
Detective John Kimble: Oh, come on...
Detective John Kimble: Stop whining! You kids are soft. You lack discipline.
Detective John Kimble: Well, I`ve got news for you. You are mine now. You belong to me.
Truly Scrumptious: What`s your name?
Jemimah: I`m Jemima.
Jeremy: And I`m Jeremy.
Jemimah: What`s yours?
Truly Scrumptious: Truly.
Jemimah: That`s a very pretty name.
Truly Scrumptious: Now, where is your house?
Jeremy: Oh, we don`t live in a house.
Jemimah: We live a castle. On top of a hill.
Truly Scrumptious: (laughs) A castle? I didn`t know there were any castles around here.
Jemimah: Well, it isn`t a castle exactly.
Jeremy: That`s what Daddy calls it. He says King Alfred used to live there hundreds of years ago.
Truly Scrumptious: And does your Daddy know you aren`t in school?
Jemimah: Oh, he won`t mind. He never does.
Jeremy: Anyway, he`s awful busy.
Truly Scrumptious: Is he? Well, he`ll have to find time to see me because I have a few things to say to him.
Peter Appleton: (comes across Adele at the cemetery) I didn`t know you were here.
Adele: I was just... saying goodbye.
Peter Appleton: Adele, I`m sorry the way things turned out. I never meant to hurt anyone, least of all you.
Adele: People get hurt sometimes, we can`t always help it. So are you really a Communist?
Peter Appleton: No, I`m really not.
Adele: I didn`t think so. Only a capitalist could get The Majestic up and running.
Peter Appleton: Great endorsement. Can I call you as a witness?
Adele: If it helps.
Peter Appleton: Thanks.
Adele: So what will you tell the Committee?
Peter Appleton: Tell them what they want to hear: "Sorry, I won`t do it again, blah, blah."
Adele: You`re not serious.
Peter Appleton: What`s wrong with it?
Peter Appleton: Be more specific.
Adele: Aside from the fact that this is a free country, and you can be a Communist if you want to be, leaving that aside, if you`re accused falsely you have a duty as well as a right to stand up and suggest they drop dead.
Peter Appleton: Emile Zola, you feel strongly about this.
Adele: Damn right! It doesn`t make it any less rigged. It`s called a witch hunt. And there`s burden of proof, innocence before guilt.
Peter Appleton: In law school, but the rest of us live in the real world. I mess with these guys, I go to jail.
Adele: All the more reason to fight them.
Peter Appleton: Like Luke would`ve done? Go ahead, say it.
Adele: Yes, like Luke would have done.
Peter Appleton: God, here it comes. Tell me again what a great guy Luke was. I haven`t heard that enough!
Adele: He would have stood up.
Peter Appleton: Well, he`s not here to vouch for that. We have to take your word! Everybody`s memory of Luke is a little rose-colored. Besides, I`m not Luke. While he was liberating Europe, I was running the PX. He couldn`t wait to save the world! I was happy not to go! I didn`t want to end up like him. I wanted to survive! You stand for a cause you get mowed down. Look. Look!
(Adele observes the many graves of the soldiers)
Peter Appleton: That`s the real world. I want my goddamn life back, Adele. Is that so hard to understand?
"A little while ago a couple of girls in school made up a video of me and put it up on YouTube. They used disgusting words. Like if my mom ever heard me say that stuff, I’d be grounded for life! They’re disgusting kids. I got really aggravated."
about why spy movies featuring kids are so popular)
Kristen: I think that it empowers kids, and kids like that because in real life when they`re at school teachers are kind of overbearing. Sometimes older people can kind of be patronizing. But when movies empower kids, I think they like it a lot.
I had to act in a school play when I was about ten years old. I really didn`t want to do it. But everyone had to do it so I didn`t have a choice. A talent agent came and watched it and later gave me some work. It`s funny because I`d always known that I wanted a movie career. I just didn`t think that I would be in the movies.
ndrew: I taped Larry Lester`s buns together. Brian Johnson: That was you? Andrew: Yeah, you know him? Brian Johnson: Yeah, I know him. Andrew: Well, then you know how hairy he is. And when they pulled the tape off, most of his hair came off and some - some skin, too. Claire Standish: Oh my God. Andrew: And the bizzare thing is that I did it for my old man. I tortured this poor kid because I wanted him to think that I was cool. He`s always going off about how when he was in school and all the wild things he used to do. And I got the feeling that he was disappointed that I never cut loose on anyone, right? So I`m sitting in the lockeroom and I`m taping up my knee, and Larry`s undressing a couple locker`s down from me. And he`s kinda, he`s kinda skinny. Weak. And I started thinkin` about my father, and his attitude about, about weakness. And the next thing I knew, I jumped on top of him and started wailing on him. And my friends, they just laughed and cheered me on. And afterwards, when I`m sitting in Vernon`s office, all I could think about was Larry`s father and Larry having to go home and explain what happened to him. And the humiliation - the fucking humiliation he must have felt. It must have been unreal. I mean, how... how do you apologize for something like that? There`s no way. It`s all because of me and my old man. God, I fucking hate him. He`s like this mindless machine that I can`t even relate to anymore. (crying, imitating his father) Andrew: `Andrew! You`ve got to be number one! I won`t tolerate any losers in this family! You`re intensity is for shit! Win! Win! Win!` You son of a bitch. You know, sometimes I wish my knee would give. And I wouldn`t be able to wrestle anymore. And he could forget all about me.
Mr. Clark, Andrew`s Father: Hey, I screwed around. Guys screw around, there`s nothin` wrong with that. (Andy nods head) Mr. Clark, Andrew`s Father: Except you got caught, Sport. Andrew: Yeah, Mom already wringed me, alright? Mr. Clark, Andrew`s Father: You wanna miss a match? You wanna blow your ride? (Andy shakes head no) Mr. Clark, Andrew`s Father: No school`s gonna give a scholarship to a discipline case!
John Bender: (after Claire performs her lipstick trick) (claps sarcastically) John Bender: Wow, Claire. That was great. My image of you is totally blown. Allison Reynolds: You`re a shit. Don`t do that to her, you swore to God you wouldn`t laugh. John Bender: Am I laughing? Andrew Clark: (shouts angrily) You fuckin` prick! John Bender: What do you care what I think anyway? I don`t even count... Right? I could disappear forever and it wouldn`t make any difference. I might as well not even exist at this school, remember? (turns to Claire) John Bender: And you... don`t like me anyway.
John Bender: Don`t you ever talk about my friends. You don`t know any of my friends. You don`t look at any of my friends. And you certainly wouldn`t condescend to speak to any of my friends. So you just stick to the things you know: shopping, nail polish, your father`s BMW, and your poor, rich drunk mother in the Caribbean. Claire Standish: SHUT UP. John Bender: And as far as being concerned about what`s gonna happen when you and I walk down the hallways of school together, you can forget it cuz it`s never gonna happen. Just bury your head in the sand and wait for your fucking prom.
Dwight Babcock: I dropped by the Bixby School. And what do I find? I find he isn`t even registered there, he never has been. So I`ve been hunting through every low, crockpot school in this town, and I finally found him in the lowest of them all. Auntie Mame: Mr. Page is a progressive educator... Dwight Babcock: There they were, a schoolroom full of them: boys, girls, teachers, romping around stark naked, bare as the day they were born. Auntie Mame: I assure you that the children under Mr. Page`s care were engaged in normal, healthful, broadening procedures. Dwight Babcock: Broadening? You show them what you were doing when I broke into that place. Go ahead, show them. Patrick Dennis: We just playing Fish Family. Dwight Babcock: Fish Family. Patrick Dennis: It`s a sort of constructive play. Dwight Babcock: Now, listen to this. Auntie Mame: Show me now darling, show me. Patrick Dennis: Well, we do it right after yogurt time. Mrs. Page and all the girls crouch down on the floor under the sun lamps. And they pretend to be lady fishes, depositing their eggs in the sand. Then Mr. Page and all the boys do what gentlemen fish do. Auntie Mame: (pause) What could be more wholesome or natural?
Oh, you think you`re so special because you get to play Picture Pages up there? Well, my five year old daughter could do that and let me tell you, she`s not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed. So why don`t you go back to night school in Mantino and learn a real trade.
I got a lot of crap from kids in school when I first started acting. I didn`t understand that, because it was something I loved doing, but I learned that you just don`t let it bother you. I didn`t understand what they were laughing about. I just ignored it.
It`s not all glamour. I learned that right away. I thought getting into acting would be a breeze, and nice and easy. I thought, "How hard could it be?" I`ve done 11 movies now (as of 2007), and I`ve learned that every single character has different challenges. On set, it`s not all fun and games. I have to do school and work long hours on set, as well. All that stuff kind of combines together. It`s not as easy as it seems. That was the biggest shocker to me.
"When it comes to my sisters` boyfriends, I`m either cool with them or my sisters know that I hate them. I`m pretty blunt with them and to the point. Back in high school, there were a couple of boys my sisters had and man, I let them know I didn`t like them. I was pretty upfront but my dad always had it right. Whenever my sisters brought them over to the house for the first time, he`d be teaching me how to clean the shotguns." -Jackson Rathbone
George Bailey: Just a minute - just a minute. Now, hold on, Mr. Potter. You`re right when you say my father was no businessman. I know that. Why he ever started this cheap, penny-ante Building and Loan, I`ll never know. But neither you nor anyone else can say anything against his character, because his whole life was - why, in the twenty-five years since he and Uncle Billy started this thing, he never once thought of himself. Isn`t that right, Uncle Billy? He didn`t save enough money to send Harry to school, let alone me. But he did help a few people get out of your slums, Mr. Potter, and what`s wrong with that? Why - here, you`re all businessmen here. Doesn`t it make them better citizens? Doesn`t it make them better customers? You - you said - what`d you say a minute ago? They had to wait and save their money before they even ought to think of a decent home. Wait? Wait for what? Until their children grow up and leave them? Until they`re so old and broken down that they... Do you know how long it takes a working man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you`re talking about... they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn`t think so. People were human beings to him. But to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they`re cattle. Well, in my book he died a much richer man than you`ll ever be.
Walter Burns: What were you when you came here five years ago - a little college girl from a school of journalism. I took a doll-faced hick... Hildy Johnson: Well, you wouldn`t take me if I hadn`t been doll-faced. Walter Burns: Well, why should I? I thought it would be a novelty to have a face around here a man could look at without shuddering.
I went to school for special education. I always assumed when I had the opportunity I would love to try and help kids with disabilities.
It is easier to change the location of a cemetery, than to change the school curriculum
I don`t know what compassionate conservative means. Does it mean cutting kids out of after school programs, Does it mean drilling in the arctic wildlife refuge? Does it mean sending kids to Iraq without body armor that`s state of the art?
He who opens a school door, closes a prison.
If the school sends out children with a desire for knowledge and some idea of how to acquire and use it, it will have done its work
Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other.
Academe, n.: An ancient school where morality and philosophy were taught. Academy, n.: A modern school where football is taught.
Together we have come to realize that for most men the right to learn is curtailed by the obligation to attend school
School days are the unhappiest in the whole span if human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, with brutal violations of common sense and common decency.
Sunday School: A prison in which children do penance for the evil conscience of their parents
No greater nor more affectionate honor can be conferred on an American than to have a public school named after him.
I do not know what `moss` stands for in the proverb, but if it stood for useful knowledge... I gathered more moss by rolling than I ever did at school."
A high-school teacher, after all, is a person deputized by the rest of us to explain to the young what sort of world they are living in, and to defend, if possible, the part their elders are playing in it
If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses.
In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.
College is a place to keep warm between high school and an early marriage.
The difference between school and life? In school, you`re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you`re given a test that teaches you a lesson.
The family is the school of duties - founded on love
True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.
I`ve been making a list of the things they don`t teach you at school. They don`t teach you how to love somebody. They don`t teach you how to be famous. They don`t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don`t teach you how to walk away from someone you don`t love any longer. They don`t teach you how to know what`s going on in someone else`s mind. They don`t teach you what to say to someone who`s dying. They don`t teach you anything worth knowing.
My mother wanted me to be a lawyer and I wanted to be an Actor. So I went to school, majored in theatre, and said `Mom, I have to choose my own destiny. I want to be an actor.` A couple of weeks after I graduated college I called my mother up and said `Can I borrow $200?` and she said `Why don`t you act like you`ve got $200.`
