Verena Von Stefan: Right. Just imagine, we’ll have to wash our hair every night. We’ll have to sleep on rollers til our scalps bleed. Then we’ll have to get up at six every morning for the comb out. Your lungs will be lined with hairspray. Then you need all this equipment to push up the tits and blitz the zits and spray the pits! Then you stagger into class and you look perfect but you’re exhausted, you’re too tired to even think but that’s okay the teachers they won’t call on you anyway, also you don’t want to be smarter than the boys. They don’t like that, so to wake yourself up you drink some coffee at lunch but don’t eat the food. You’ll be a permanent diet!

Odette: They’re just boys Verena, not communists.
Verena Von Stefan: I’m not going to live in the shadow of the hairy bird.
Tinka Parker: Well that’s your problem, you’re afraid of boys.
Verena Von Stefan: You’d be afraid too except that you have nothing left to lose Ms Tinka.
Tinka Parker: Prude.
Verena Von Stefan: Tramp.
Tweety: Truce. Quiet. Come on. Have some ravioli.

Tinka Parker: It’s what we’ve always wanted, boys at Ms. Goddards.
Verena Von Stefan: Oh yeah you’d just go out and greet them with open legs.
Odette: Hey now they’re going to have to call it Ms. Go-nads.

Tinka Parker: Look, Von Stefan. I know you like this place the way it is, but wake up. It’s not real life. Real life is boy, girl, boy, girl.
Verena Von Stefan: No, real life is boy *on top* of girl.

Verena Von Stefan: Coed school will be a nice change.
Odette: [to Frosty] Excuse us please.
[aside] Odette: You hypocrite. I thought you said you hated boys.
Verena Von Stefan: I’ve been thinking, perhaps they are like dogs. If we don’t take them in, they run wild and are a danger to society.

Verena Von Stefan: No more little white gloves.

[after Odie has humiliated the hall monitor] Verena Von Stefan: Wow… that was breath-taking. You really do have quite a way with words. Odie, I would like to invite you to join the D.A.R.
Odette: Oh, I’m not a republican.
Verena Von Stefan: Oh, God, no. We should hope not.

[Verena arrives late to class] Frank Dewey: You’ve missed a whole period.
Verena Von Stefan: [gasps] You mean I’m pregnant?

Odette: I loathe and deplore this place.
Verena Von Stefan: I don’t see how you can say that when you’re from Detroit.

Miss McVane: More tea?
Verena Von Stefan: No thank you.
Miss McVane: Cigarette?
Verena Von Stefan: Sure.
Miss McVane: Catch.
