Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In this episode, Lucy accuses Mary of having no idea what it's like to be left out. How could she say that after the girls at school were ostracizing Mary right in front of Lucy?

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Lucy: How would you know anything about being left out? You have been in the in-crowd your whole life. You've been Miss Star, Miss Athlete, Miss Popularity all during high school. You have no idea what it's like to be left out.
      Mary: Are you crazy? Why do you think I got into basketball in the first place? I was, like 7 feet tall by the time I got into the fifth grade. Kids laughed at me and called me names, and so I did something. I learned a sport. I used my height instead of just complaining about it. I became an athlete instead of just whining about being different. And after all that, I'm nothing. I'm just the tall bad girl who let everybody down, and now I'm paying for it!

      (The book being The Outsiders)
