Quote from Beverly in Fiddler
Erica: I will not let Geoff go to LA.
Beverly: Oh, squishy some things are just out of your control.
Erica: Not if I make sure he tanks those SATs.
Beverly: Shame on you for even thinking such a thing. If it's one rule I live by, it's that you can't smother your loved ones.
Erica: Um, hello? Remember, I wanted to apply to college in California? You tried to sabotage my SATs by teaching me fake vocabulary words.
Beverly: I swear on my life nothing like that has even remotely happened.
