Quotes

  • Mary Clancy  

    I've got the most scathingly brilliant idea!

  • Mother Superior  

    Rachel? Well, Rachel has a home and parents who love her. She's a follower, not a leader. She can be guided. But, Mary... oh, Mary has a will of iron. To bend but not to break... to yield but not capitulate... to have pride but also humility. This has always been my struggle, Sister. Can I be less tolerant of Mary than the church has been of me?

  • Rachel Devery  

    Couldn't we have uniforms, too, Reverend Mother?

  • Mother Superior  

    Most certainly not. The band will perform in their gym suits.

  • Rachel Devery  

    Our gym suits?

  • Mother Superior  

    Yes.

  • Mary Clancy  

    But, they're awful! I mean, it's not as if they were like Sacred Heart's. At Sacred Heart they wear short-shorts for gym.

  • Mother Superior  

    They're French.

  • Mother Superior  

    This is a Catholic school Mr. Gottschalk!

  • Mr. Gottschalk  

    Band uniforms are non-sectarian.

  • Mother Superior  

    As for the social graces, I'm convinced that your school encourages barbarism and concerns itself only with free thinking, free wheeling and finger-painting.

  • Mr. Petrie  

    The finest educational minds in the country happen to be on our side!

  • Mother Superior  

    God is on ours!
