Ava Quote #17

Quote from Ava in Wishlist

Ava: Oh, yeah, I can help you make your video.
Janine: Really?
Ava: Yes. This is what I do.
Janine: Well, you're also a principal, so...
Ava: Yeah, but this is my art. I write, I edit, I direct, I do the music, I lip-sync. Because of me, when people say that their favorite director is that Ava lady, somebody else gotta be like, "Which one?" [both chuckle]
Janine: Well, maybe you can just give me a few tips. You know, maybe help build upon what I already have?
Ava: Let me see your phone. What is this? An iPhone 9? [chuckles] It's like a Walkman. I don't know nothing about this. That's before my time.

Quote from Janine

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 Ava

Janine: And I know she comes from that generation that doesn't ask for what they need, so I want to ask for her, and that is why I'm here. [motor running, water splashing] Sorry, am I hearing, like, splashing or bubbles?
Ava: Oh, yeah. Soaking my toesies in my new foot bath.
Janine: Where'd you get this stuff?
Ava: I put it on your list. For the kids. How does having a principal with muscle tension serve them? Ooh, that's a knot! Ooh, that's a knot! Whoo!
Janine: You know what? I'm gonna go.
Ava: That's a knot. Okay, okay. Okay, you were right. Mrs. Howard is an amazing teacher, and we should look out for our own.
Janine: So, does that mean you'll make her a video?
Ava: Oh, yeah. I'm gonna make it rain glue sticks in that room.
Janine: [chuckles] Well, thank you.
Ava: You don't need to thank me. I'mma thank myself by getting an accessory for this massage gun. I want the little part that gets in between the bones.
