'This is Liberty Hill, a small town,

..where streets are named for trees

and heroes and a sense of life's

continuity runs in the air. '

'Like a hundred other such towns

it puts a special stamp on its own. '

'People born and raised here,

high and low, rich and poor, are

neighbours in an irrevocable way. '

'They have all been exposed

at a tender, malleable age... the impartial justice,

inflexible regulations...

.. and the grey, calm, neutral eyes

of the same teacher -

the Terrible Miss Dove. '

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Mr Porter.

What are you using on your lilies?

Sulphate of ammonia -

the best fertilizer.

Except for lilies.

Particularly for lilies.

They will perish.

There she goes, Jincey -

I wish Little Whosit would copy

Miss Dove's sense of time.

Who could stand it? Imagine burping

a baby that resembled Miss Dove!

Seventeen minutes past eight.

Eat up. Miss Dove just went by.

You don't want to be tardy.

Oh, puke! The oatmeal stinks.

Excuse yourself and get to school!

Yes, sir. Excuse me.

Go on!

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Mr Levine.

Morrie is coming home to visit.

He will want to see his old teacher.

I shall be happy to see Maurice.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, William.

Bobsie! Mark, how's that left foot?


Peggie, how's my best girl?


Well, what a pretty pink dress.

It's orange, Mr Spivey.

My mother made it.

She did?

Isn't he cute with the small fry?

He oughtta have oodles of his own.

It's a shame such a family man

never married.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

John, send me a fast one!

Nice try, Mr Spivey.

Let me caddy for you.

Please don't bother, Miss Elwood.

Spring's in the air. Baseball games,

state proficiency tests coming up...

Is Cedar Grove going for

the geography pennant again?

The children will try hard.

The results will reflect credit

on all concerned.

I heard what you said about spring.

It makes you want

to do something mad! Whooh!

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Perry.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Terry.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Robert.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Mark.

I forgot my handkerchief.

First things first, Harrison.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Harrison.

You may take a tissue from my desk.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, Margaret.

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Attention, please.

The lesson will begin.

We will continue with our study of

the dietary habits of animals.

"Bears like honey. They are also fond

of red ants which have a flavour

similar to that of pickles. "


You know what to do, Robert.

You may return to your desk, Robert.

We will resume.

"The camel is not a pretty beast,

but he can go days without water. "

Margaret, you will now occupy

the posture correction stool.

We will resume.

You better tank up!

"The camel is not a pretty beast,

but he can go days without water. "

Who's afraid of that old... stick?

Good morning, Miss Dove.

Good morning, David.

The state proficiency tests

will be held next Monday.

I think it would be advisable

to utilise this period for review.

No, David. You had ample opportunity

to quench your thirst before class.

Take out your books, please.

I advise that you memorise the

agriculture of the Argentine pampas.

'That's strange. A sharp pain. '

'Probably a muscular spasm. '

'If I tranquillize my mind

it will pass. '

'I will think about the Alps - white,

clean, rising above Lake Lucerne. '

Come back, Victoria.

Hellfire and damnation!

You will remain after class, David.

Yes, Miss Dove.
