Blair: I know a phony when I see one.
Jo: You should. You spend enough time lookin' in the mirror.

Blair: Mrs. Garrett, I have to talk to you right now.
Jo: Can't you wait till tomorrow to make a fool of yourself?
Blair: No, I can't.

"Something's wrong, and I'm going to find out the truth", Mrs. Garrett

"There's nothing wrong with your hormones", Mrs. Garrett

Blair: (sighs)
Jo: I hate it when you do that.
Blair: Do what?
Jo: Sigh!
Blair: I don't sigh.
Jo: Well, if it wasn't a sigh, you gotta slow leak.
Tootie: Cool it, you two.
Blair: (sighs again)
Jo: You did it again!
Blair: It's called breathing.
Jo: You do it just to annoy me.
Blair: No, I do it to keep from dying.
Jo: Now there's an idea!

Mrs. Garrett: I have news for you. There will be new girls taking over your kitchen duties and moving into your old room.
Blair: New girls?
Natalie: In our room?
Mrs. Garrett: That's right. I want it cleaned, swept and painted for the new tenants. So I expect you tomorrow at 3:00 ready to work. Wear your old clothes.
Blair: Mrs. Garrett, I don't have any old clothes. (Sees Mrs. Garrett's look) I'll buy some.

Blair: The cafeteria van? Keys are never in it.
Jo: Who needs a key? Tonight you're going to get your first lesson in hotwiring.
Blair: Hotwiring? Don't be stupid, the van already has a heater.

Blair: Mrs. Garrett, I've never done menial work before. I don't know how you slice onions or take out the garbage
Mrs. G: Oh it's not so bad. With onions you cry a little, with garbage, you die a little

Blair: What were YOU doing in the library? reading Dumbo?

Mrs. G- Hey Jo, why don't you try out for something this year.
Jo- No way, I'm not gonna stand up here and make a foool of myself.
Blair- But you do it so well!
