This is a good one, b/c I ca picture everyone saying this at least once in the series. Can we have a little clue? :angelwings:

I was going to give you guys a clue, but Jody guessed correctly! It's from Angela's opening voiceover in The Substitute:
Angela (voice over): Maybe teachers have a hidden life. Where they're actually, like, human. Where they have, I don't know, dignity. Or maybe not.
Although it does seem that any of the characters could have said, "Or maybe not," there are only two other instances that are close. One is from Life of Brian:
Graham : Brian, we're not talking about wallpaper here, are we?
Brian : Maybe not.
The other is from So-Called Angels:
Graham : No, I'm just saying -- what if that was Brian Krakow with that bruise on his face?
Patty : W --
Graham : Well, that'd be a different story, wouldn't it?
Patty : Graham -- you can't compare them. I mean -- I've known Brian Krakow since he was five years old.
Graham : I know. So have I. Now all I'm asking is -- should that make a difference?
Patty : Well, maybe not. But it does.

Was that quote from the red file?

I woke up during the night thinking that Vic says it after he tells Angela to drop out of school. I think he says something close, "or not."

Patty: If Rayanne's not seeing you, and we're not seeing you, who is seeing you?
Graham: And how much of you?
Angela: Dad!
Graham: Oh, I'm sorry! I asked a question about your life, didn't I? Woah, what came over me?

This is the scene you are thinking of:
Angela: You're telling me to drop out of high school?
Vic: Good question. Yes. Run for your life. Save your life. Let the walls of your ginger bread house come crashing down. Or not.

I'm giving my proxy to Tomspeed, or who ever wants it. What, with my car and the start of school, i can't take the pressure of finding a good quote as well. Sorry.

I hope that things start looking up for you, Jody.

I'll get things started again with an easy one:
She needed you.

I like to answer them, but I just can't seem to motivate to find new ones ... I think this means I'll be on the sidelines for a while.

Okay, since I am a little ecstatic right now as I finally have a rental car, I'm going to give it a go (I realize that all these recent up and down posts must make me seem manic)...

It is Jordan to Angela regarding the school eliminating one of the lunch periods.

I think you're thinking of this scene:
Chuck : [mumbles] Send a girl to do a man's job...
Graham : What's that, Chuck?
Patty : What did you say, Dad?
Chuck : Never mind. It's not worth repeatin'.
