Angela's poem from "The Substitute":
Rickie[reading]: Once upon a time there lived a girl. She slept in a lovely little cottage made of ginger bread and candy. She was always asleep. One morning she woke up, and the candy had mold on it. Her father blew her a kiss and the house fell down. She realized
she was lost. She found herself walking down a crowded street.
But the people were made of paper. Like paper dolls. She blew
everyone a kiss good bye and watched as they blew away.

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?

well, since it seems kind of hard to get, some advice on the last one:

- it's not a "word", but some "association" (for something that ain't to be said but still heard)
- there's a bed involved
- it's been "invented" in the same state our protagonists live in

hope that helps...

I have no thoughts for "throwing copper." I'll keep thinking about it. In the meantime here is a new word: Bisque

Throwing copper

This one has had me stumped for months! I tried to come up with all sorts of things; for a while I thought I was on to something when I translated "throwing copper" into "pitching pennies". I kept trying to find a scene in which kids were playing that game in the background but I was unsuccessful.

Speaking of playing in the background, I saw "The Weekend" recently and heard an old Live song in the background. I thought to myself, "I remember this song. . .what album was it on?" Then I realized it was on the Throwing Copper album! This must be the connection, but since there's already a prompt of "bisque" out there I don't want to introduce a new one. Still, I'd love to know if I really figured it out or if I've just been done in by my own cleverness.

@Brunkster:
although it's been a longer while ago...

you're right on the Live-CD (just like Tomspeed already wrote). The association is:

#18 (the weekend) - scene with the bunch of them sitting in the bedroom, trying to figure out how to solve the on the hand-cuffs - the music playing on the radio/tape is "Alone" by Live.
So you've figured it out - 100% . :D
