In the scene in which Marilyn is teaching her pupils to sublimate their anger by stomping their feet rather than hitting, she asks the children what they should do instead of hitting. One little boy, screen left, begins stomping his feet and making fists, despite the fact that Marilyn hasn't demonstrated the technique yet.

What do you want?
I want us to live together. I want us to get married. I want us to have children together. I want us to put our teeth in the same cup. I want us buried together in a family plot with one headstone. What do you want?
I want a separate cup for my teeth.
