Mr. Van Driessen: People, I'm very disappointed in these test scores.
Butt-head: We scored. (laughs)
Mr. Van Driessen: No, Butt-head, that's my point. You DIDN'T score. You got a zero.
Substitute Teacher: What's your name?
Butt-Head: Uh... Joe.
Substitute Teacher: Joe? Joe what?
Butt-Head: Uh... momma.
Substitute Teacher: A good reader's like a lover... attentive, passionate... Who wants to make love today?
(whole class raises their hands)
Substitute Teacher: Hey! Beavis and Butt-head! What did you think of those old Superman comics I loaned ya?
Butt-head: Uh, we gave 'em to this kid after he showed us a dead deer.
Beavis: Yeah. It was all bloated and stuff. I poked it.
Substitute Teacher: Mmmm hmm. Wise choice, men. Life experience beats book learnin' hands down.
Substitute Teacher: (to Beavis and Butt-head) I trust you. (crosses his arms over his chest, and falls backwards)
What the sub was doing is referred to as a "trust fall." This is a team-building activity where someone deliberately falls backwards, trusting those below to catch him. Unfortunately for the sub, Beavis and Butt-head are not trustworthy.
Mr. Van Driessen: Open your textbooks to page 234... the poem entitled, "A Narrow Fellow in the Grass."
This is a real poem by Emily Dickinson, written around 1865.
