Ginger's Poem

                                                                                                     Hello Stranger

Hello stranger, you came just in time

I look your face in a crowd or in line

Hello stranger, not a moment to soon

See that old picture is fading in the drawer of my room

Now toys had gone lost, baby teeth had come loose

There were accidents involving sticthes, spilled juice

Report cards are shown and one time I got sick

but it's nothing I couldn't catch up to you very quick

Hello stranger, I saved you a place and hardley seems strange

Now that I've seen your face.

Quotes

Ginger: Friday of freedom from fish sticks; fried food. Friday of freedom; repair my foul mood.

N​urse: (asking about Carl) Do you think he's rabid? Lois: Not clinically.

Macie: (asking about Ginger's dad) He doesn't have a giant silver afro does he?

Courtney: (onstage and offscreen) And I use the edge of my brush to make the pattern that looks like the bark of a tree. See? 

Dodie: Oh, I have got the permanent chills and I don't think they're ever gonna go away. Macie: I know someone you can see about that.

Ginger: Ok, but Ma? Lois: Yeah? Ginger: I just want to... I mean... thanks for the flowers. (last lines of the episode)
