Please don't make me go. You can keep home-schooling me.  
I taught you everything I know. No more argument, OK? We discussed this ad nauseam. 
What's ad nauseam? 
You don't know? Wow, it looks like someone needs school. 
Good morning Miss Stevenson. 
Who can tell me what 3 plus 3 is? 
Everyone knows it's 6.  
Mary,can you stand up, please? Can you tell me what 57 multiplied by 135 is? OK, who... 
7,695. The square root is 87.7 and change. Now what does ad nauseam mean? 
I think your niece may be gifted. 
I am good friends with the headmaster of the Oaks Academy for gifted education.  
No. I promised my sister I'd give Mary a normal life. I think she's gotta be here. 
Who's that lady in front of our door? 
That would be your grandmother.  
Holy sh... 
It's a MacBook, darling. 
What are you doing here? 
You are denying the girl her potential. How many seven year-olds are doing advanced calculus? 
You forgot the negative sign on the exponent. 
Mary, why didn't you say anything? 
Hank says I'm not supposed to correct older people. Nobody likes a smart-ass.  
We petition the court to grant my client full custody of the child.  
No! No! 
You're gonna take that girl. You're gonna loan her out to some think tank where she can talk nontrivial zeroes with a bunch of old Russian guys for the rest of her life.  
And you'd bury her under a rock.  
Evelyn, stop! I'm raising her how I believe Diane would have wanted.  
If anybody takes that baby away, I'll smother you in your sleep. 
My sister wanted Mary to be a kid. She wanted her to have friends and to be happy.  
Tell us, do you have health insurance? 
No. 
Did you spend the night in jail? 
Objection! 
What's your greatest fear? 
That I'll ruin Mary's life.  
Mary! 
Mary. 
Mary? 
Uh-uh. 
She's bossy.  
I've heard that.  
He's a good person. He wanted me before I was smart.  
 
 
(Lyrics) I listen to the wind 
To the wind of my soul 
I've sat upon the setting sun 
 
(Lyrics) Do you need a reason 
We should commit treason 
And bring into this world a son 
 
And leave the valleys of the young 
Valleys of the young 
Valleys
