A true teacher defends his students against his own personal influences.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How can we hope to remain economically competitive in a world in which... 90% of Dutch high-school students take advanced math courses and 100% of teachers in Germany have double majors, while the best we can say about our pocket of excellence is that 75% of [American] students have learned to critique tactfully?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Education in our times must try to find whatever there is in students that might yearn for completion, and to reconstruct the learning that would enable them autonomously to seek that completion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A person of mature years and ripe development, who is expecting nothing from literature but the corroboration and renewal of past ideas, may find satisfaction in a lucidity so complete as to occasion no imaginative excitement, but young and ambitious students are not content with it. They seek the excitement because they are capable of the growth that it accompanies.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My own experience is that a certain kind of genius among students is best brought out in bed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most important outcome of education is to help students become independent of formal education.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach them to think straight, if possible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
American universities are organized on the principle of the nuclear rather than the extended family. Graduate students are grimly trained to be technicians rather than connoisseurs. The old German style of universal scholarship has gone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The worst behaved students turn out to be the most pious preachers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some students drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Vlad: To all the critics out there, I know they're gonna review this, and I know they're gonna try to knock me - is it OK if I say this to the camera, Amber? - Okay. I only am who I am 'cause I was born that way. I have a gift, and I'm trying not to be selfish about it, but to use it. Okay? If you're gonna knock me for that, that's your problem. Jealousy will get you nowhere. And I'm gonna keep rockin' on.
[scene returns to singing cast, then shifts to Ellen's bathroom]
Ellen's Brother: Ellen, what's the matter with you? Don't tell Mom I'm taking you to your stupid junior prom.
Ellen: [in shower] Get out of here!
Ellen's Brother: Your brother - how gross is that! Come on!
Ellen: They don't know you're my brother. Please Ben you have to - I'll pay you.
Ellen's Brother: Find someone who's not related to you. Loser.
[scene shifts to Michael, in drag, attempting to enter his prom - the teacher rips up his ticket and he's beaten up by fellow students - Michael dreams himself back to the cast singing "How Shall I See You Through My Tears"]More [08/23/2005 12:08:00]
Rex: At Rex Kwan Do, we use the buddy system. No more flying solo. You need somebody watching your back at all times. Second off, you're gonna learn to discipline your image. You think I got where I am today because I dressed like Peter Pan over here?
[points to Kip]
Rex: Take a look at what I'm wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys? Forget about it. Last off, my students will learn about self respect. You think anybody thinks I'm a failure because I go home to Starla at night? Forget about it!More [08/31/2005 12:08:00]
Police Captain: Gentlemen, the city of Fort Lauderdale is once again under fire from the north. We've survived it before and I reckon we're gonna survive it again. To you newly installed officers on the force, I'd to give you a little rundown on what to expect. Expect anything. Anything and everything cause that's what you're gonna get. Now, Fort Lauderdale is not the only city to be invaded at this time. In Palm Springs and in Newport, from the beaches of the Mid Atlantic to the snows of Colorado, the students of America are gathering to celebrate the rites of spring. And, if you pardon a pun, you've got that right. They're our future voters, their citizens of our country, and they're our responsibility. But how the hell to handle them, that's a different manner.
[laughter from officers]
Police Captain: Now these kids didn't come down here to break the law. They'll break it for sure, but that's not their main objective. And remember that they are our guests. So, I want every man on the force to try his best, his level best, to try to avoid arresting anyone. I know that this going to take great will power but try. And, above all preserve your scene of humor. Cause you're gonna need it if you want to survive. And... God bless you all.More [01/23/2006 12:01:00]
I would be devastated if my son could not have music as part of his curriculum in school. It should not be a choice between culture and technical training - well-rounded students and graduates will make appropriate choices for their careers, but they must also be trained to make appropriate social choices.More [04/27/2006 12:04:00]
I think it's wonderful that students can get scholarships to play athletics at universities. But the fact that you can't do that in the Ivy League just makes it extra special. It's really in the vein of the true student-athlete.More [05/01/2006 12:05:00]
We studied many different versions of classic fairy tales from different cultures around the world. We took stories like Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood and studied at least five versions of each so the students could compare and contrast them.More [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
“Construction Technology students will then begin on the interior work.”More [07/02/2006 12:07:00]
“We always need more tutors, because there are students who are waiting for a tutor to help them improve their reading, writing, math, or basic computer skills.”More [07/10/2006 12:07:00]
“I always felt sorry for the students who were asked to play sad, old characters.”More [07/17/2006 12:07:00]
“I get the students involved because it's important to create awareness and to educate them of the donation process while they are students. If they become volunteer blood donors early, they will continue through their lives.”More [11/11/2006 12:11:00]
A lot of student directors used to pick other students to be in their graduate films, so. I ended up doing a couple of them just for fun. Eventually, I got an agent through a friend and I did some commercials; then I got Knots Landing.More [11/19/2006 12:11:00]
[Hagrid's sad about Norbert being taken away]
Caretaker Argus Filch: For God's sake, pull yourself together man. You're going into the Forest after all. Got to have your wits about ya...
Draco Malfoy: The Forest? I thought that was a joke. We can't go in there. Students aren't allowed. And there are...
[a howling noise is heard]
Draco Malfoy: ...werewolves.
Caretaker Argus Filch: Oh, there's more than werewolves in those trees, you can be sure of that. Nighty night.More [02/20/2007 12:02:00]
Harry: [Speaking to Ron and Hermione] I'll see you back in the Common Room.
[getting up hastily and walking out, staring angrily right back at all the eyes on him as he leaves. A group of Hufflepuff students continue their discussion, unaware that Harry is listening from behind the wall]
Ernie MacMillan: So anyway, I told Justin to hide up in our dormitory. I mean to say, if Potter's marked him as his next victim, it's best he keeps a low profile for awhile.
Hannah Abbott: But why would Harry want to attack Justin?
Ernie MacMillan: Justin told me that he'd let slip to Potter that he was Muggle-born.
Hannah Abbott: And you really think Potter's the Heir of Slytherin?
Ernie MacMillan: Hannah, he's a Parselmouth. Everyone knows that's the mark of a dark wizard. Have you ever heard of a decent one who can talk to snakes? They called Slytherin himself "Serpent Tongue".
Hannah Abbott: Harry's always seemed so nice, though. And after all, he is the one who made You-Know-Who disappear.
Ernie MacMillan: That's probably why You-Know-Who wanted him to kill him in the first place. Didn't want another Dark Lord competing with him.More [02/21/2007 12:02:00]

George McFly: [deleted scene]
[after looking at his watch George rushes to the phone booth and calls the operator]
George McFly: Uh, yeah operator, can you give me the time please?
[a few students come and block him in the phone booth with a trident]
George McFly: Hey! Get me out of here!
[the students laugh as they walk away]
George McFly: [Mr. Strickland walks by and sees George inside the phone booth] Mr. Strickland! Those students trapped me in here.
Mr. Strickland: See, this is what happens to slackers. Now do you understand?
[walks away]
George McFly: Yes. But, but Mr. Strickland you have to let me out of here!More [02/26/2007 12:02:00]
Mr. Willerstein: Dr. Krunklehorn, I know you're very busy at Inventco Labs. And we're just so happy to have you as a judge.
Lucille Krunklehorn: It's my pleasure, Mr. Willerstein. Hey, you never know, one of your students may invent the next integrated circuit, or microprocessor, or integrated circuit. Oh wait, I said that already. Well, I just don't get out of the lab very much. Is that a bowtie? I like bowties. I haven't slept in eight days!
Mr. Willerstein: Uh, well then, can I get you a cot or something?
Lucille Krunklehorn: Nope, I have the caffeine patch. It's my invention. Each patch is the equivalent of 12 cups of coffee. You can stay up for days with no side effects. Ahhh! Sorry.More [05/09/2007 12:05:00]
Paul Gardener: Hey, how about some interviews? You know, students react to the tragedy on campus.
Brenda: Okay. I am saddened, and moved by the tragic...
Natalie: This was someone's life Paul. Did you even spend one minute thinking about that?
Paul Gardener: No, I didn't. But because of my story, three-thousand five-hundred students will. I think that's enough to help me sleep at night.More [06/17/2007 12:06:00]

Host: Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary since Velez Air Flight 180 exploded and crashed shortly after takeoff from JFK airport. It's a disaster that's affected many. None more so than Mt. Abraham High School, which lost 40 students and 4 faculty members in the crash. But it was the events after the crash that has turned this tragic story into something even stranger. The survivors that managed to get off the plane before it crashed died soon thereafter in a series of mysterious and bizarre accidents. Now to some, these deaths are just tragic coincidences, but to others, they're an indication that there are more sinister events taking place. That's the contention of tonight's guest. Thank you for joining us this evening.More [06/25/2007 12:06:00]
Everyone in those days expected that art students were wild, licentious characters. We didn’t know how to be, but we sure were anxious to learn.More [07/25/2007 12:07:00]
“It is not enough to offer a smorgasbord of courses. We must insure that students are not just eating at one end of the table.”More [08/05/2007 12:08:00]
J.D.: [showing the other students the museum] I couldn't let you guys leave New York without seeing the Natural History Museum.

Miss Burke: Zeke, you cannot conduct personal business on school property.
[Zeke sits down on his car]
Zeke: Well, Miss Burke, we have a problem because I'm sitting on my car and that's my property.
Miss Burke: Well I've been getting complaints from several students that you've sold them mind-altering substances. Now do you wanna talk to me about it, or take it up with Principal Drake?
Zeke: You're too tense, Miss Burke. But I've got just the thing for ya.
Miss Burke: You know, Zeke, I am the authority figure here, it's time you realized that.
Zeke: Helps relief from blockage caused by dietary stress: Chocolate flavored laxatives.
Miss Burke: You know Zeke, if you applied just 5 percent of that intellect to your studies you could've made up your finals last summer and you wouldn't have had to repeat your senior year.
Zeke: Not a chocolate lover, huh? How about this: Condoms. Magnum Sized. And they're cherry flavored. C'mon... they're on me.
Miss Burke: That's so rude.More [10/26/2007 12:10:00]

F'%# Up #1: Does that look like me?
F'%# Up#2: Uh, its the new you.
F'%# Up #1: I don't know man. How do we even know these things are gonna work?
Zeke: Trust me man, I'm brilliant.
F'%# Up #1: Then why are you repeating your senior year?More [10/26/2007 12:10:00]
I always tell my students that Malcolm X came both to his spirituality and to his consciousness as a thinker when he had solitude to read. Unfortunately, tragically, like so many young black males, that solitude only came in prison.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]
I‘m so disturbed when my women students behave as though they can only read women, or black students behave as though they can only read blacks, or white students behave as though they can only identify with a white writer.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]
Starkman: Louis, you wanna go to medical school?
Louis: Medical school?

Dolores Umbridge: Pardon me, Professor, but what exactly are you insinuating?
Minerva McGonagall: I am merely requesting that when it comes to my students you conform to the prescribed disciplinary practices.
Dolores Umbridge: So silly of me, but it sounds as if you're questioning my authority in my own classroom, Minerva.
Minerva McGonagall: Not at all, Delores, merely your medieval methods.
Dolores Umbridge: I am sorry, dear, but to question my practices is to question the Ministry, and by extension, the Minister himself. I am a tolerant woman, but the one thing I will not stand for is disloyalty.
Minerva McGonagall: Disloyalty?
Dolores Umbridge: Things at Hogwarts are far worse than I feared.More [02/08/2008 12:02:00]
Dolores Umbridge: Your previous instruction in this subject has been disturbingly uneven. But you will be pleased to know from now on, you will be following a carefully structured, Ministry-approved course of defensive magic. Yes?
Hermione Granger: There's nothing in here about using defensive spells.
Dolores Umbridge: Using spells? Ha ha! Well I can't imagine why you would need to use spells in my classroom.
Ron Weasley: We're not gonna use magic?
Dolores Umbridge: You will be learning about defensive spells in a secure, risk-free way.
Harry Potter: Well, what use is that? If we're gonna be attacked it won't be risk-free.
Dolores Umbridge: Students will raise their hands when they speak in my class.
Dolores Umbridge: It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient to get you through your examinations, which after all, is what school is all about.
Harry Potter: And how is theory supposed to prepare us for what's out there?
Dolores Umbridge: There is nothing out there, dear! Who do you imagine would want to attack children like yourself?
Harry Potter: I don't know, maybe, Lord Voldemort!More [02/08/2008 12:02:00]
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: [approaching Highway] Just what the hell do you think you're doing?
Highway: Just enjoying the view, sir.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Well, you disobeyed an order. I told you to stay in contact and not take this hill without me. Damn it! Get on your feet, Highway!
Highway: With all due respect, sir, you're beginning to bore the hell out of me.
[sees the helicopter landing and Colonel Meyers getting out]
Colonel Meyers: Who's in charge here?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: I am, sir. Major Malcolm Powers.
Colonel Meyers: Did you lead this assault?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Sir, Leutenant Ring and Gunnery Sergeant Highway disobeyed a direct order. I told them to wait for support but they went up this hill anyway.
Colonel Meyers: [to Highway] Why?
Highway: We're Marines, sir. We're paid to adapt, to improvise.
Lieutenant M.R. Ring: Sir, I gave the order to take this hill.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Ring, this is going to ruin your career.
Colonel Meyers: Are you new to the infantry, Major?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Yes, sir. Just came over from supply.
Colonel Meyers: Were you good at that?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers: Yes, sir!
Colonel Meyers: Well then, stick to it because you're a walking cluster fuck as an infantry officer. My men are hard chargers, Major! Leutenant Ring and Gunny Highway took a handfull of young fire pissers, exercised some personal initiative and kicked ass!
[to Lt Ring]
Colonel Meyers: Good job, Leutenant!
Lieutenant M.R. Ring: Thank you, sir!
Colonel Meyers: Leutenant, see to it that those students are escorted back to Cherry Point.
Lieutenant M.R. Ring: Yes, sir!
Colonel Meyers: [to Powers] Well, your dismissed!

Colonel Meyers: What the hell are you two sorry assed individuals looking at? Get the hell off of my LZ.
Highway, Choozoo: Semper Fi!

Daniel: Oh, well, uh... he doesn't speak English and, uh, I can't understand his instructions without her. She's his, uh, translator.
Miyagi: [says something in Japanese]
Official: What did he say?
Ali: He says that, uh, you remind him of an uncle he has in Tokyo.

Miyagi: Afraid facts mixed up.
Kreese: You calling Mr. Lawrence a liar?
Miyagi: No call no one nothing.
Kreese: What are you here for, old man?
Miyagi: Come ask leave boy alone.
Kreese: What's the matter, the boy can't take care of his own problems?
Miyagi: One to one problem, yes. FIVE to one problem, too much ask anyone.
Kreese: Is that what's bothering you? The odds? Well, we can fix that. Feel like matching, Mr. Lawrence?
Johnny Lawrence: Yes, sensei!
Miyagi: No more fighting.
Kreese: This is a karate dojo, not a knitting class. You don't come into my dojo, drop a challenge and leave, old man. Now you get your boy on the mat, or you and I will have a major problem.
Miyagi: Too much advantage. Your dojo.
Kreese: Name a place.
Miyagi: Tournament.
Kreese: [laughs] You've got real nerve, old man. Real nerve. But I think we can accomodate you. Can't we, Mr. Lawrence?
Johnny Lawrence: Yes, sensei.
Kreese: Fall in.
[Johnny turns and leaves]
Miyagi: Ask one more small request.
Kreese: Make it fast.
Miyagi: Ask leave boy alone to train.
Kreese: You're a pushy little bastard, ain't ya? But I like that. I like that! All right. No one touches the prima donna until the tournament. Is that understood?

Kreese: But if you don't show, it's open season on him... and you.

Joe Clark: You've tried it your way for years, and your students can't even pass the State's Minimum Basic Skills Test. THAT MEANS THEY CAN BARELY READ! Now, they've given me one year to turn this place around - to get those test scores up - so that the State will not take us over to perform the task which YOU have failed to accomplish: the task of EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN! So forget about the way it used to be. This is not a damn democracy! We are in a state of emergency and my word is law! There's only one boss around here, and that's me. The HNIC.

Thomas Sams: We don't NEED a "good principal!" That's why we're here! We need Mr. Clark!
Leonna Barrett: You may THINK you know what you need, but...

Joe Clark: Alright people, here we are. In one hour, you are going to take an exam administered by the State to test your basic skills and the quality of education at East Side High. I want to tell you what the people are saying about you and what they think about your chances. They say you're inferior! You are just a bunch of niggers and spics and poor white trash! Education is wasted on you! You cannot learn! You're lost! I mean ALL of you! I want all the white students to stand up. All my white students, stand up. Stand up. C'mon, stand up. These are my white children and they're the same as all of you! They've got no place to go, if they had, they'd have abandoned us a long time ago like everybody else did. So, here they are in East Side High, just like the rest of us. You can sit down. Are you getting my point, people? Is it beginning to sink in? We sink, we swim, we rise, we fall, we meet our fate together! Now, it took the help of a good, good friend to make me know and understand that and I do understand that and I'm grateful. I'm eternally grateful. And now, I've got a message for those people out there who've abandoned you and written you off! Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Good! You are NOT inferior! Your grades may be, your school may have been. But you can turn that around and make liars out of those bastards in exactly one hour when you take that test and pass it and win! So here's what I want you to do. When you find your thoughts wandering, I want you to knuckle back down and concentrate. Concentrate! Remember what's at stake and show them what East Side High's all about: a spirit that will not die!More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]
Joe Clark: [after asking teachers to put up their hands] Because you are failing to educate them, this is the posture that many of our students will wind up in. Only they'll be staring down the barrel of a gun!More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]
Joe Clark: Mr. Major, on behalf of myself and on behalf the students of Eastside High, you can tell the State to go to hell!More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]

Mr. Rosenberg: Mr. Mayor it seems that Mr. Clark's students have assembled outside in an exercise of their first amendment rights.

Joe Clark: [at the first teachers' meeting] ... You are now my chief custodian, Reverend Slappy. You will scour this building clean. Any graffiti that goes up, comes off the next day. Is that clear? Detention students can help you. Let them scrub this place for a while, discover what a fine living you make doing this. And tear down those cages in the cafeteria! If we treat our students like animals, that's exactly how they'll behave!More [07/13/2008 12:07:00]

Charles Gibson:
You got to find out who that is.

Robert Emmett 'Bob' Sharkey:
All right.

Charles Gibson:
That's not as easy as it sounds.

Robert Emmett 'Bob' Sharkey:

Just one thing, Professor, will you level with me? What's with the feather duster? The beard? You think it moves the chicks?

Prof. Robert O. Sutwell:
No, it usually works the other way.

I don't dig. You don't want to level with me?

Prof. Robert O. Sutwell:
All right I'll level with you. When I first started out a Harvard, I was the youngest professor at the university. I was so young that it was sickening. No one took me seriously. Every time when I opened my mouth to speak, my students laughed, the other professors laughed, even the janitors laughted. Well, I knew it couldn't go on for long before I was fired, so one day at lunch, I sat down in the student cafeteria and presented my problem to this old professor friend of mine. And without even glancing up from his soup, he said to me: "buy yourself a pair of glasses and grow a beard." So you see, all of this is just 18 years of professor windowdressing.

Amazing how our lives parallel. You have that, and I have this.
