TV Weatherman: Well, it looks like we're going to have another sunny day - high 72, low 72, and not a cloud in the sky.
(after Mary Sue explains to Betty about sex)
Jennifer: Are you okay?
Betty Parker: Um, yes. It's, uh, just that your father would never do anything like that.
Betty Parker: Mmm.
Jennifer: Well, you know, Mom, there are other ways to enjoy yourself... without Dad.
Betty Parker: (Betty is in color, George is still black & white) George, look at me. Look at my face. That meeting is not for me.
George Parker: You'll put on some make-up.
Betty Parker: I don't want to put on make-up.
George Parker: It'll go away. It goes away.
Betty Parker: (firmly) I don't want it to go away.
David: (on the phone) Well, he's not homeless, Howard, they just don't say where he lives. - Well, it's a silly question! - Because nobody's homeless in Pleasantville. 'Cause that's just not what it's like.
Bill Johnson: It's just... where am I going to see colors like that?
(David looks up from his job at the soda counter to see Jennifer determinedly leading Skip out of the place and down the sidewalk)
David: Oh, shit!
(He takes a flying jump-leap over the counter)
David: Jennifer, stop!
(He chases Jennifer and Skip outside, to where Skip's car is already pulling away from the curb)
David: You can't do this, Jennifer! He doesn't exist! You can't do this to someone who doesn't exist!
Skip: Mary Sue, I think I should go home now.
Jennifer: Why what's wrong?
Skip: I think I might be
Skip: ... ill. Somethings happening to me.
Jennifer: (looking with him) That's supposed to happen.
Skip: It is?
Jennifer: Yeah, trust me.
(Pleasantville's first-ever rainstorm)
Big Bob: Well, we're safe for now. Thank goodness we're in a bowling alley.
(Montage of teachers talking to David's classes)
College Counselor: For those of you going on to college next year, the chance of finding a good job will actually decrease by the time you graduate. The available number of entry-level jobs will drop 31 percent over the next four years. Median income for those jobs will go down as well. Obviously, my friends, it's a competitive world, and good grades are your only ticket through. In fact, by the year 2000...
Health Teacher: The chance of contracting HIV from a non-monogamous lifestyle will climb to 1 in 150. The odds of dying in an auto accident are only 1 in twenty-five hundred. Now, this marks a drastic increase...
Science Teacher: ...from fourteen years ago, when ozone depletion was just at 10 percent of its current level. By the time you are thirty years old, average global temperature will have risen two and a half degrees, causing such catastrophic consequences as typhoons, floods, widespread drought, and famine.
(Cut to David absorbing all this grim information and looking really depressed)
Science Teacher: (With a bright smile:) Okay! Who can tell me what "famine" is?
George Parker: Betty! Bob would like some of your great hors d'oeuvres!
Kimmy: (about David) Oh, my God. He is, like, so pathetic. I can't believe you're, like, related to him!
Jennifer: Only on my parents' side.
Kimmy: Yeah, but you guys are, like, twins and stuff. You must be from the cool side of the uterus.
Big Bob: (bangs the gavel) You're out of order!
David: Why am I out of order?
(approaches Big Bob)
Big Bob: Because I'm not gonna let you turn this courtroom into a circus!
David: Well, I don't think it's a circus, and I don't think they do, either.
(David turns to look at the crowd, where many of the black-and-white people are changing into color. There are gasps and murmurs. Jennifer grins)
Big Bob: (bangs the gavel) This behavior must stop at once.
David: But see? That's just the point! It can't stop at once, because it's in you, and you can't stop something that's inside you.
Big Bob: It is not inside *me*!
David: (amused) Oh, sure it is.
Big Bob: No, it is not!
David: (Leans forward and speaks confidentially with a mischievous grin) What do you want to do to me right now? Come on. Everyone is turning colors. Kids are making out in the street. No one is getting their dinner.
(Raises his voice for all to hear)
David: Hell, you could have a flood any minute! Pretty soon, the women could be going off to work, while the men stayed at home and cooked!
Big Bob: That is not going to happen!
David: (with defiant delight) But it *could* happen!
Big Bob: (enraged) *No, it could not!*
(Big Bob suddenly turns pink, and David grins victoriously)
Jennifer: I did the slut thing, David. It got kinda old.
David: I know you miss her, I mean, you told me you did. But maybe it's not just the cooking or the cleaning that you miss. Maybe it's something else. Maybe you can't even describe it. Maybe you only know it when it's gone. Maybe it's like there's a whole piece of you that's missing, too. Look at her, Dad. Doesn't she look pretty like that? Doesn't she look just as beautiful as the first time you met her? Do you really want her back the way she was? Doesn't she look wonderful? Now, don't you wish you could tell her that?
Jennifer: (looking at boobs in mirror) I could, like, kill a guy with these things.
