Quotes from High School Play
High School Girl: Whoever he was, he had a funny little
beard and wrote a great play called The Midsummer Night's Dream.
Malcolm: People are always asking our class to volunteer for
stuff. They just assume we're social rejects with nothing better
to do. And they're right, I just don't like having it thrown
in my face.
Caroline: Before anyone gets too excited,
there is a down side. You're probably going to have to miss class.
Malcolm: Look at all these people! They're pierced. They're
brooding. They are wearing weird clothes. They don't care
about anything. It's like a room full of Francises!
Lois: You went from a part with no lines to the lead in the
high school play?
Hal: That's great! -- It's not a musical is it?
Hal: That's great!
Reese: Dude you play a fairy?
Lois: Not just any fairy Reese. He's the biggest fairy in
the whole play!
Dewey: Can we run over things in the car, like we did last time?
Lois: Oh my god, is that right? -- what time do you have?
Lois: 5:45. That's not possible. Dropped off Malcolm, picked up
Reese, dinner is in the oven -- Hah?
Cashier: What is it?
Lois: I have the next 25 minutes free.
Cashier: How did you manage that? Did you leave a kid somewhere?

Cashier: What ya gonna do?
Cadet: But sir, that's a photo of my sister.

to the other cadets she's a distraction.
Dewey: This is nice. It never looks like the box when I do it alone.
Malcolm: What if I could just go straight to high school? I've been
told skipping grades stunts you socially. I think I've been lied to.
Hal: So Dewey, I'm thinking our little community can use a school.
Dewey: Don't need it, everyone is born smart.
Hal: Oh, that's beautiful, son. It's a utopia.
Dewey: And anyone stupid will be ground up for food.
Hal: Oh, a cannibalistic utopia, interesting.
Caroline: I work hard too, but I manage to make it to the Lamaze class. [to janitor]
Dewey: Live, Live, Live, Die. Live, Live, Live, Live, Die.
Hal: Hey, what happened to the judicial system presided over
by a tribunal of elders?
Dewey: I had them lined up and shot!
Malcolm: This must be one of those times that feels like an eternity,
but only a few seconds have gone by.
Hal: How come Malcolm hasn't said anything for five minutes?
Reese: It's over? But you promised me partial nudity.
Hal: Yeah, that was a lie.
Reese: And ice cream after?
Hal: That too.
