(After Denise accuses Clair of "pouring cold water" on all of Denise's ideas)
Clair (to herself): "Maybe when we were making the decision to have *that* child, somebody should have poured some cold water on Cliff!"
(After "Uncle Wilton" tells what Denise needs for a teacher's aid job)
Denise: "Gosh, you know, all I want to do is help children and no one will let me!"
Rebecca: "Denise, why are you so hardheaded? The man didn't say that; he said you have to get an education to be of help here."
Denise: "Well, I am ready now if Uncle Wilton would work with me!"
Rebecca: "Uncle Wilton already has enough children to work with; he doesn't need one as old as you! Denise, why don't you want to go to college? Why are you so afraid to go to college?!"
Denise: "Because! I am ready now!"
Rebecca: "You know, a lot of people think they can just walk in off the street and do something because it looks easy! But they don't realize you have to work hard to make something look easy."
