Boston is not currently a city where "Teach for America" operates. It is being considered as an addition, but it is not in the program at the time the episode aired. See more »

Quotes

Marilyn Sudor: Women are so dumb, Steven, you know that? Okay, what would you do if somebody hit you?
Steven Harper: Well, I'd like to say I'd turn the other cheek, but I'd probably hit 'em back.
Marilyn Sudor: Yeah, turning the other cheek is overrated, Steven, take it from me. She's gonna marry that guy, you know what? Screw it.
Steven Harper: You're the last person in the world I'd thought would turn bitter.
Marilyn Sudor: Oh, I'm way past bitter. He's gonna beat the hell out of her, he's gonna break her spirit again and again, and you know what? Maybe they'll have...

Lots of potential to be a great show!
24 October 2000 | by (Waterloo, Ontario) – See all my reviews

After watching the first episode of BOSTON PUBLIC, I am hooked. The cast is great, and the writers have really captured what it's like to be a student in high school- as well as a teacher. Now, the first episode had its problems (do you really believe Senate wouldn't have been fired for firing that gun, or that Harper won't be for slamming that kid into the locker), but it is still a very intelligent show. We have to look past these mistakes at the show as a whole. This show captures high school in a bad neighborhood perfectly. I hope this show stays around for a while (unlikely the even more brillant FREAKS AND GEEKS that got axed after only one stellar year) and with a debut episode like that, it'll only get better.
