Barbara Quote #29

Quote from Barbara in Art Teacher

Jacob: I, uh... I bought some pre-sprouted plants to expedite the process. I thought we could have a space for veggies and one for fruits.
Barbara: Well, you know, I thought it might also be nice if we had a section for flowers too.
Jacob: Ah. One step ahead of ya.
Barbara: Lilies! Like my favorite movie, Lilies of the Field.
Jacob: Ah! You know what? They just don't make men like Sidney Poitier anymore. They... They don't.
Barbara: They most certainly do not. [both laugh]

Quote from Gregory

Barbara: Jacob and I are starting a garden to grow some vegetables for the students.
Gregory: Oh, wow. That's really cool.
Jacob: We got an extra pair of gloves if you want in.
Gregory: No, thanks, I'm good. I mean, I appreciate it, though. Just the opposite of green thumbs over here.

Gregory: In the '60s, my grandfather started a landscaping business, Eddie Lawn & Care. Then, in the '90s, my father took it over. Then, for the first 20 years of my life, I spent every single summer "vacation" planting, mowing, and raking. I cannot stand gardening.
Gregory: You don't want to over water that one. From what I've heard.

Quote from Gregory

Gregory: [aside to camera] Jacob and Barbara have no idea what they're doing. He was trying to plant a coconut in West Philadelphia in soil with a sub-6.3 pH. Bruh!

Quote from Gregory

Gregory: [aside to camera] Oh, they were absolutely killing everything. I don't think a single seed would have survived. I couldn't just sit there and watch that. It's like my dad always said. "A real man doesn't ignore the root of the problem. Now pick that hoe up!" I hate gardening so much.
