Richard Vernon: Well, well. Here we are. I want to congratulate you all for being on time.
Claire Standish: Excuse me, sir. I think there's been a mistake. I know we're in detention but I don't think I belong here.
[Vernon ignores her, carrying on with his speech]
Richard Vernon: It is now 7:06. You have exactly 8 hours and 54 minutes to think about WHY you are here - to ponder the error of your ways. You will not talk... you will now move... from these seats.
Richard Vernon: [addressing Bender, who has his feet on a chair] And YOU... will not sleep.
[pulls the chair out from under Bender's feet]
Richard Vernon: All right people, we're going to try something a little different today. We are going to write... an essay... of not less than a thousand words... describing to me who you think you are. And when I say 'ESSAY', I mean 'ESSAY', NOT one word repeated a thousand times. Is that clear, Mr. Bender?
John Bender: Crystal.
Richard Vernon: Good. You might learn a thing or two about yourself. You might even decide whether or not you'd care to return.
Brian Johnson: Excuse me sir, I can answer that right now. That'd be no.
