Alex Quote #162

Quote from Alex in Under Pressure

Dr. Clark: So, your siblings, they don't experience the same pressures you do.
Alex: Oh, God, no. They don't care about school.
Dr. Clark: Hmm. Why do you think that is? I mean, you all grew up in the same house with the same parents, yet you're the only one who feels this enormous pressure to achieve at such a high level.
Alex: Why do we even have to talk about my family? They don't have anything to do with this. They don't get me.
Dr. Clark: How's that feel?
Alex: I don't know.
Dr. Clark: You're a smart girl. Try a little harder.
Alex: I said I don't know. [sighs] I feel... Kind of alone.

Quote from Cameron

Cameron: [aside to camera] There's a caste system at school: academic teachers at the top, gym teachers at the bottom. It's offensive and disrespectful. They treat us like we're lunch ladies.

Quote from Alex

Dr. Clark: You mind if we try something?
Alex: What?
Dr. Clark: Just do me a favor. Take a deep breath. Great. Now what's on your mind?
Alex: Well, I just remembered that I forgot to charge my computer before I left and that I have to get new index cards before Monday. Hopefully they don't run out of the blue ones, because, for some reason, those help me study better. Maybe it's because they're easier to read or maybe my prescription's getting worse. I should probably make an appointment with the eye doctor. Also, should I get a job this summer or would an internship look better on my application? And what is up with Hillary? Is she going to run or not? I mean, I feel like she'd totally understand the feeling of being overwhelmed, but also like you're not doing enough at the same time.
Dr. Clark: Wow.
