Ed Avery (mocking the children's artwork displays at the P.T.A. meeting): "Think of it ladies and gentlemen... a hundred thousand schools like this, from coast to coast. Every year whole forests are cut down to supply the paper for these grotesque daubs... and we coo over them as though they were Van Goghs... or Rembrandts..." (cont'd)
Woman (responding to Ed Avery's mocking of the children's artwork displays at the P.T.A. meeting, cont'd): "I'm afraid Mr. Avery hasn't much faith in the unspoiled instincts of childhood." Ed Avery: "Faith! My dear lady... childhood is a congenital disease and the purpose of education is to cure it! ...I see my point of view is new to many of you. But ask yourselves, how do we describe the unfortunate individual who carries his unspoiled childhood instincts into adult life? ...We say he's arrested. We call him a moron!" Woman: "Well! I'm not at all sure that I like to have my daughter Louise thought of that way! ...And by her teacher!" Ed Avery: "My dear lady, your Louise is a charming little creature, but we must try to examine the problem without prejudice or sentiment! The hard fact remains that your daughter, at her present stage of development, is roughly on an intellectual par with the African gorilla." (flustered oohs and aahs from the parents)
Ed Avery (holding a pair of scissors and raving/reading to his wife from The Bible about Abraham sacrificing his son Isaac): "...and they came to the place of which God had told him, and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac, his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood; and Abraham stretched forth his hand... and took the knife... to slay his son..." Lou Avery: "But Ed -- you didn't read it all! God stopped Abraham!" Ed Avery: "God was wrong!" (closes The Bible)
