Ned: Well, all right, I'd like to call this meeting of the PTA to
or-diddely-order. Let's see if we can't put an end to this
strike fuss, huh? Mrs. Krabappel, why don't you begin?
Skinner: Boo!
Edna: Oh, "boo" yourself. Our demands are simple: a small cost-of-
living increase and some better equipment and supplies for
your children.
Audience: Yeah! Give it to them! etc.
Skinner: Yeah, in a dream world. We have a very tight budget; to do
what she's asking, we'd have to raise taxes.
Audience: Raise taxes? They're too high as they are. Taxes are bad.
Edna: It's your children's future.
Audience: That's right. Children are important. etc.
Skinner: It'll cost you.
Audience: No to taxes. My God, they're going to raise taxes. etc.
Edna: C'mon!
Audience: She makes a good case. Good point. etc.
Skinner: [rubs his fingertips together]
Audience: More taxes? The finger thing means the taxes. etc.
Ned: Well, I guess this is a case where we'll have to agree to
Skinner: I don't agree to that.
Edna: Neither do I!
