Leigh Ann Watson Quotes in Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999)
Leigh Ann Watson Quotes:
Leigh Ann Watson: It's completely factual, she was burned at the stake.
Mrs. Tingle: Always the victim, aren't we, Ms. Watson?
Leigh Ann Watson: Well there are certain similarities between society today and seventeenth century Salem. I guess that would be the irony of it all.
Mrs. Tingle: Irony is the opposite of what is or might be expected. For example, if Ms. Watson was expecting an A on her history project, she might find the actual result to be rather ironic.
Leigh Ann Watson: I'm gonna burn in hell for this.
Luke Churner: It'll be a party!
Leigh Ann Watson: Oh, Mrs. Tingle, threats are a sign of weakness.
Leigh Ann Watson: What's the matter, Mrs. Tingle? Getting scared yourself?
Mrs. Tingle: Oh no! Ms. Watson, things are just starting to get fun.
Leigh Ann Watson: I am not scared of you.
Mrs. Tingle: Who do you think you're fooling? You're so scared I can smell it. Your fear is the most predictable thing about you. You've lived your whole life in fear. Terrified of making a mistake, scared to death you won't get that A, that ticket out. Afraid you'll never escape your mother and her name tag. Or your father who won't return your calls. That's why you shunned Luke and every other boy who has ever tried to put his hands on you. You're afraid of getting that bad seed. Afraid of giving birth to a child you never wanted. A child you could only blame for your own wretched existence. Stuck in a small town with a small name. Destined to become that very thing you despise the most. I know all about it, Leigh Ann. I wrote the book! I know you.
