Willona: (walking in the apartment) I smell meat. What happened? Junior mug a cow?
James: You know, Junior, when you was born, I just dreamed of the day that you'd go to college. I never figured on a little stumbling block called 'high school.'
(Florida asks JJ how he expects his grades will be)
JJ: Well, algebra so-so, English, could be, history, maybe, and espanol, comme ci, comme ca.
Thelma: Comme ci, comme ca is French, stupid.
JJ: Which gives you an idea how I'm doing in espanol.
Florida: All right, Junior, we're gonna give you one more chance. Now if you don't answer this question, we're gonna march you straight down to the principal's office. Fair enough?
J.J.: Fair enough. I have confidence in my ability. Go ahead, lay it on me!
Florida: All right. What is a dangling participle?
[J.J. goes into a moment of deep thought]
J.J.: [putting on his hat] Well, let's go!
Mr. Kirkwood: You dig?
Florida: Better, we UNDERSTAND.
