Cory Quote #12

Quote from Cory in The Valentine's Day Dance

Dean: Hampton, that was amazing!
Hampton: What did I do?
Dean: If Keisa joins the committee, she can still go to the dance, and I can still reveal my true feelings to her. It's perfect.
Cory: [laughs] Oh. Y'all are serious? Well, y'all two have fun with that.


 ‘The Valentine's Day Dance’ Quotes

Quote from Kim

Adult Dean: Every generation of every family wants its children to have a better life. For many black families in the '60s, a better life simply meant being able to walk a dog instead of being chased by them. For my family, a better life meant a better education.
Lillian: I talked to your guidance counselor. He said that volunteering for the Big Sister, Little Sister program could help your college application stand out.
Kim: I've spent years as Dean's big sister. Shouldn't that count towards community service?
Bill: Spent the first two years trying to send him back. Kept wasting good stamps.
Kim: Well, I went to all his stupid baseball games.
Dean: You went to one game, and the one game that you actually went to, you thought I was another kid.
Kim: You all wear the same color shirts.

Quote from Hampton

Hampton: Ah, isn't it magical? All of our hard work has finally paid off, and you've got the best job in the house. You get to see everyone's faces as they first lay eyes on our underwater fantasy. "Fanta-sea." That would have been a good one.

 Cory Long Quotes

Quote from Be Prepared

Cory: Hey, Dean. You won't believe it, man. We were chopping down trees, right?
Hampton: And a copperhead came up from under the log!
Norman: Then Mr. Long cut it in half with the hatchet!
Cory: But, listen, the head was still wiggling.
Norman: Then a hawk flew down, grabbed it, and carried it away.
Cory: If it wasn't for my dad, we'd all be dead from that snake. And Norman would have been carried off by the hawk. [Norman sighs]

Quote from Lads and Ladies and Us

Cory: Hey, I'm not gonna lie. I felt a little left out last time, so I spent all night studying up on the planets. Did you know that Pluto is so far out there that from there, the sun just looks like a regular star? Also, did you know that we have a library by where we live?
Adult Dean: Wait a minute, Cory's an astronomer all of a sudden?
Dean: Hey, you know how sports is your thing?
Cory: Mm-hmm.
Dean: Maybe leave the planets to me.
Cory: Okay. Unless there's a cute girl out there. Then the Pluto thing's coming back out.
Adult Dean: Cory was probably the only kid in the world who could make a pick-up line about Pluto work.
