Episode Quotes
Darlene: To Whom It Concerns:
Darlene's work will be late, it fell on her pancakes and stuck to her plate.
To Whom It Concerns: I lost my assignment, maybe I'll get lucky, solitary confinement
To Whom It Concerns: My mom made me WRITE this, but I'm just a kid, so how could I fight this?
To Whom It Concerns: Darlene's great with the ball, but guys don't watch tomboys when they're cruising the hall
To Whom It Concerns: I just turned thirteen, too short to be quarterback, too plain to be queen
To Whom It Concerns: I am not made of steel, when I get blindsided, my pain is quite real
I don't mean to squak, but it really burns
I just thought I'd mention it:
To Whom It Concerns.
