Sister Kate: April is the slowest, most conscientious driver in the world.
April: Isn't that good?
Sister Kate: Not when you're trying to get somewhere. When the speed limit's 25, she goes 24. When she drives by a hospital, she turns off the engine and coasts because the sign says Quiet. One time the light turned yellow and she actually stopped.
Todd: You're right, that *is* sick.
Sister Kate: The policeman that rear-ended us seemed to think so.

Don't mess with the nun
26 May 2002 | by (Hell) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show every week when it came on. It was about a bunch of kids who are in an orphange runned by a nun. It's to bad that most of the stars didn't pursue acting careers after Sister Kate. I sure miss a lot of the good shows back in the 80's and early 90's. They always take the good shows off. Sonya
