Francesca P. Roberts: Miss Higgins
Miss Higgins : That's too bad. You have a gift for language, Mr. Riley. But talent is a common thing. People waste it every day. They abuse it. They take it for granted. Success comes not from what God has given you but what you do with it. It's really up to you.
Miss Higgins : Now. Before you ladies get pregnant and you gentlemen murder one another you'll learn the joy of reading. This way, you have something to do in your ninth month or in your jail cell.
