Mary Clancy: I've got the most scathingly brilliant idea! Mother Superior: Rachel? Well, Rachel has a home and parents who love her. She's a follower, not a leader. She can be guided. But, Mary... oh, Mary has a will of iron. To bend but not to break... to yield but not capitulate... to have pride but also humility. This has always been my struggle, Sister. Can I be less tolerant of Mary than the church has been of me? Rachel Devery: Couldn't we have uniforms, too, Reverend Mother? Mother Superior: Most certainly not. The band will perform in their gym suits. Rachel Devery: Our gym suits? Mother Superior: Yes. Mary Clancy: But, they're awful! I mean, it's not as if they were like Sacred Heart's. At Sacred Heart they wear short-shorts for gym. Mother Superior: They're French. Mother Superior: This is a Catholic school Mr. Gottschalk! Mr. Gottschalk: Band uniforms are non-sectarian. Mother Superior: As for the social graces, I'm convinced that your school encourages barbarism and concerns itself only with free thinking, free wheeling and finger-painting. Mr. Petrie: The finest educational minds in the country happen to be on our side! Mother Superior: God is on ours! Mary Clancy: Hi, Marvel-Ann! Marvel-Ann Clancy: Drop Dead! Rachel Devery: Who's that? Mary Clancy: Marvel-Ann. My uncle George is her father. He's been sending her to the nuns since she was six. I said she was illegitimate, so she hates me. Rachel Devery: Is she? Mary Clancy: Lord, no. Uncle George is very careful about that sort of thing. Mary Clancy: Who knows, Reverend Mother, Maybe someday Rachel will come back and join the order. Mother Superior: If she does, I quit! Rachel Devery: [to Mary during their final punishment] I wonder if my father realizes that he's paying good money to have me educated to be a janitor.
