‘Everybody Hates Earth Day’

Season 3, Episode 18 -  Aired April 20, 2008

Chris asks Julius to help him collect cans for an Earth Day project. After Tonya gets in trouble for yelling at a classmate, Rochelle agrees to tone down her shouting.

Quote from Rochelle

Adult Chris: [v.o.] While I had my father on my side, my mother was going to get a teacher off of Tonya's back.
Rochelle: I don't see why I have to take a whole day off of work, to come down here for this nonsense.
Mrs. Wilson: I don't think it's nonsense. Tonya was exhibiting some aggressive behavior toward a classmate. I just wanted you to be aware of it.
Tonya: I was just trying to read, and she wouldn't be quiet.
Rochelle: Girl, you interrupt me again, I'm going to knock the sound out of your mouth.


Quote from Tonya

Julius: What happened?
Tonya: I was trying to study and this girl kept talking so I told her: [in Rochelle's voice]: "If you don't shut up, I'm going to slap the chatter out of you." And she left me alone.
Drew: Wow, you sound just like mom.
Rochelle: No, she doesn't.
Julius: She does. I mean, just a little.

Quote from Vanessa

Vanessa: I help the environment by wearing wigs. People put a whole lot of chemicals in their hair. Then they wash it out. It goes right into the river. People got to drink that water. When you done with a wig, just flush it down the toilet. If it ends up in your glass, well, at least you can see it.

Quote from Greg

Greg: While I was making my tanning bed, I accidentally invented an incandescent light bulb that won't burn out for 600 years.
Chris: That's amazing. Then you'll definitely get an "A."
Greg: I can't turn that in.
Chris: Why not?
Greg: Are you crazy? I'd be a marked man. I'm not taking down every major power company in the nation. They'd have me killed in a minute. So I decided to switch projects. I'm going with a dung-powered radar system.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] US patent #D349127.

Quote from Rochelle

Rochelle: So this means that I'm going to go back to yelling at everybody.
Tonya: Because you love us?
Rochelle: Exactly.
Tonya: So I can yell at you, too?
Rochelle: Mmm, if you want the fillings knocked out of your face, go right ahead.

Quote from Ms. Morello

Ms. Morello: So, Chris, tell us about your Earth Day project.
Chris: Oh, well, me and my dad collected a truckful of cans.
Ms. Morello: Chris, that's wonderful.
Chris: And I gave the money to somebody less fortunate. I mean, there's no reason to save the Earth if you can't save the people.
Ms. Morello: Oh, Chris, that's so profound. Other than the fact that you can see, Stevie Wonder's got nothing on you.

Quote from Michael

Michael: I use "I Can't Believe This Is Not Margarine." It tastes real great. Plus it has paudridridamadra-hydraglycerin. That saves cows.

Quote from Mr. Omar

Mr. Omar: If the Earth died, that would be tragic, but I sure like to sell that coffin.

Quote from Kill Moves

Ms. Morello: I know in my heart, that money is somehow going to help us all.
Doc: So we have 13 Styrofoam ice chests, four cans of aerosol spray paint, one pack of cigarettes, a gallon of whisky and one container of "I Can't Believe It's Not Margarine." Would that be paper or plastic?
Kill Moves: Plastic.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] Happy Earth Day.

Quote from Rochelle

Rochelle: Listen to this: "Dear Parent, Your daughter Tonya has been cited for a conduct violation, and your presence is being requested for a conference."
Julius: What kind of conduct violation?
Tonya: She said I was being rude and belligerent.
Rochelle: Ain't no damn body rude and belligerent. I'm going to go down there and show them what rude and belligerent is.
Adult Chris: [v.o.] No kidding.
Rochelle: Rude and belligerent.
