Barbara: We can hardly get parents to come to the open house. I don't think you're going to get that many at drop off.
Janine: Oh, no, I'm very good at canvassing. People always open the door for me because they think I'm a lost child.
Janine: Who's with me?
Gregory: I'll do it with you after school, Janine!
Gregory: I mean, I'll get engaged with you... with the parents... we're gonna get signatures!
Gregory: I really don't know where we go from here. We didn't get enough signatures and we need at least 500 to prove to the school board that the community is against going charter.
Ava: Hold up! All we need is signatures? That's easy. I know tons of names -- Barbara, Melissa, Jason, Marge, Homer, Peter Pan --
Gregory: Real names

Ava: In a rare turn of events, I was wrong. Please only pitch good ideas.
Allie: We could bribe the superintendent!
Melissa: With what money? Would you get your head in the game, Allie!
Mr. Johnson: In my safety deposit box, I have three-fourths of what I think is a treasure map, now if we find the other quarter --
Janine: So what, we throw a big festival during Open House and make people sign the petition to get in?
Ava: Now that's absurd. But it does give me an idea. We should throw a big FUN festival during Open House and make everyone sign the petition to get in!
Janine: Why can't you ever give me credit for a good idea?
Ava: Stop making everything about you, Janine. AVA FEST is about the kids!
