Quote from Wishlist

Janine: [aside to camera] Barbara makes do with so little. It's pride, I think. My psych professor used to say that pride and stubbornness share a fence. Barbara's sitting on that fence. I'm gonna help her off. Sometimes Robin has to look out for Batman. Too many metaphors.

Quote from Step Class

Janine: [aside to camera] This is exciting! Like in those videos with the unlikely animal friends. You're like, "There's no way a parakeet and crocodile can make it work and...". Actually, in the one I just watched, they didn't. Uh, it was mislabeled. Very tragic.

Quote from Wishlist

Janine: Hey, how's it going with the... same stuff that was here before? Even the penguins.
Gregory: Yeah, I just kinda stopped trying.
Janine: Do you mean, like, you're taking a break before you keep going? I don't know what that means.

Quote from Gifted Program

Janine: [aside to camera] It'd be easy to just give up and not have a gifted program, but there was an acronym I learned in the one I was in... PIE... Perseverance, Ingenuity, and Effort. I love PIE. Even though I can't eat it, though. Hurts my tummy. [chuckles] But I did try it for many years. That's the perseverance part, which is why we should have a gifted program.

Quote from Pilot

Janine: Oh, Nina, excellent sentence structure. Let me see. "My favorite movie is Toy Story, and my favorite character is Woody." Good. Mine too. Well, more of a Buzz girl. I love his ambition. Right, guys?
Girl: Yeah.
Janine: Okay, let's see. Uh, Brittany. "My favorite movie is American Gangster. Yep. And my favorite character is Frank Lucas." Okay. That is a great sentence. And I will be having a third talk with your mom about what you're watching at home.

Quote from Light Bulb

Janine: Guys, the lights in the back hallway have been out for weeks.
Melissa: Thank you for the update.
Barbara: What are you wearing?
Janine: And we need to do something about it. Okay? Uh, uh, Melina, from your class... Yeah, she was afraid to come to school this morning. Said it looked like The Shining, and I don't even get how she knows that reference.
Melissa: She loves The Shining.
Jacob: It's a classic movie.

Quote from Pilot

Children: Good morning, Ms. Teagues!
Janine: You know, Ms. Howard, you remind me so much of my favorite teacher from the third grade, Ms. Elliot. She was well-dressed, good with kids, a wizard with a glue gun...
Barbara: Thank you, Janine. That is very kind of you.
Janine: Yeah, I-I wanted to be just like her, actually. I was, like, obsessed with her. She wrote in my report card note, "Needs friends her own age. A bit clingy." She was a hoot.
Barbara: Yes.
Janine: Anyway, hey, did you get my e-mail about the two of us hanging together after school or...
Barbara: No. It must have gone to spam.
Janine: It's so crazy how my e-mails do that with you and nobody else.
Barbara: Uh... Class, turn around.
Janine: Bye, Mom... I'm sorry. Ms. Howard. Bye, Ms. Howard.

Quote from Pilot

Janine: "Is your school sick? Try prescription rugs." [looks to camera] Classic.

Quote from Light Bulb

Janine: [aside to camera] See, I just can't accept this. You know, they didn't see those kids' faces. It was like they walked into The Haunted Mansion at Disney, which is a very scary ride, by the way. I don't care what people say.

Quote from Step Class

Janine: [aside to camera] I get that Ava hasn't historically been the most reliable, but she seems really excited about this, and I think we're gonna make a great team. Step's all about the fundamentals. She's the "fun," and I'm "damentals." Doesn't sound right.
