    • QUOTES (13)

      • Jill: I have to admit we were a little surprised to be called in for Randy. He's never been in trouble before.
        Mr. Moreno: We think the reason Randy's being so disruptive is because he's so bright. He's already ahead of the others.
        Tim: Then what are we doing here? Shouldn't you be talking to the parents of the dumb kids?

      • Jill: (to Brad) I remember when you were a baby, and you first started eating solid food. The spoon never got anywhere near your mouth. You had applesauce all over your face.
        Tim: And peas up your nose, which wasn't really attractive, because you sneezed a lot then.

      • Jill: Randy, teachers don't give detentions for nothing.
        Randy: Actually, they do. It's a new program. Just started.

      • (Tim accidentally demolishes an anatomical model in the science classroom)
        Tim: I just asked him one question and he spilled his guts.

      • Jill: My parents first got called in [to school] in seventh grade. Mrs. Minugin, home ec. She gave me a D in casseroles.
        Tim: So the problem goes back that far?

      • Tim: I love welding. You might say I carry a torch for it.

      • Randy: (about his teacher) He's cool. He doesn't mind if we call him Baldy.
        Jill: We had a teacher we called Baldy. (pause) She minded.

      • Tim: Your first A, that's really good news.
        Brad: Yeah, last year the only A I got stood for "absence."

      • Tim (about the virtual-reality system in the Man's Bedroom): While your wife's reading about Fabio, you can be racing at Indy with Mario.

      • Jill: Randy, this isn't like you at all, what's going on?
        Randy: Nothing.
        Brad: Bad answer, I would have gone with, "It wasn't my fault, it was the kid next to me."
        Tim: That never worked for me, I WAS the kid next to me.

      • Jill: How was your first day at high school?
        Randy: Fine, except for the guy who asked if I wanted a phone book to sit on.
        Jill: Did you tell the teacher?
        Randy: It was the teacher.

      • (Tim and Jill go to a parent-teacher conference about Randy)
        Tim: Relax, this is the first time we've been called in. When I was his age, my mom was at school so much, they thought she was an eighth-grader with a station wagon.

      • Jill: (to Tim) What's that smile about? Are you planning something sexy for us tonight, or have you been welding?
