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.
Principal Potter: I was thinking.
Mrs. Tingle: No, don't do that Mr. Potter, we still prefer that bristling wind effect you have on us.
Mrs. Tingle: Oh, by the way... happy birthday.
Principal Potter: It's not my birthday, Mrs Tingle.
Mrs. Tingle: No, not your natal birthday, the AA one. You've been sober, how long is it now?
Principal Potter: Four years.
Mrs. Tingle: There! I knew it was this week. Me and dates, you know, that's the curse of being a history teacher. Well congratulations, that's quite an accomplishment. Just think, not one sip of alcohol in over four years, that's almost... unbelievable.
