Hampton Quote #10

Quote from Hampton in The Valentine's Day Dance

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.


 ‘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 Bill

Bill: My man. First dance tonight. You know what? Your curfew's extended until 10:00.
Dean: Cool.
Bill: You meeting Keisa there, or are you guys picking her up?
Dean: Actually, I'm not going with Keisa. I never asked her, and now she's going with an eighth grader.
Bill: Then who are you going with?
Dean: I'm on the planning committee.
Bill: [sighs] Be home by 8:00.

Quote from Hampton

Cory: Three years? Are you out of your mind? By then, you'll be... "just a friend." [both shudder]
Dean: Why? Is being friends bad?
Cory: Girls don't fall in love with their friends.
Hampton: Yeah, my mom and dad aren't friends at all.
Cory: Are you going to ask her to the Valentine's Day dance?
Brad: Not as a friend?
Dean: Check this out. Music. Dancing. The opening refrain to "When a Man Loves a Woman". Then I'll reveal my true feelings for Keisa.
Cory: Hmm.
Dean: No?
Hampton: Don't listen to them, Dean. I'm on the dance's planning committee, and this year's theme will be perfect for your plan. I could tell you the theme now, but I'd hate to give away the surprise. [all silent] Fine, it's "Under The Sea." Happy?
