Dean Quote #9

Quote from Dean in Green Eyed Monster

Mrs. Hodges: Dean, Cory, Keisa, may I see the three of you up front, please? [they step forward] You all know that talking during class is a demerit.
Dean: I'm sorry, Mrs. Hodges. I've just been really upset about Dr. King.
Mrs. Hodges: Oh, dear. I do understand.
Adult Dean: [chuckles] This was getting too easy.
Cory: It's hit us all pretty hard.
Adult Dean: It wasn't enough that he hijacked my girl? Now he was hijacking my "White Liberal Guilt" card?
Mrs. Hodges: I'm sure it hit you both equally hard. And you, as well, Keisa. In fact, I think I might have a solution. Why don't you all give a presentation to the class about Dr. King's importance? Help us feel your pain.
Dean: I- Is it okay if I do my own? It's just Dr. King's death was... so personal.
Mrs. Hodges: Of course, Dean.
Adult Dean: Nothing could hurt worse than working with them.
[fantasy: Cory and Keisa are sitting on a couch together. Keisa is knitting while Cory reads the paper and smokes a pipe:]
Keisa: Thank God we worked on that MLK presentation together all those years ago.
Cory: If Dean hadn't done his own project, I would never have proposed to you. [a number of children are playing on the floor]
Adult Dean: I was wrong. This hurt so much more.
