Episode 6 [3.6][edit]

Simon: So, I go up to her, ask her if she wants to go for a non-sex drink with me, not because I want to but because I've been travelling and Brian doesn't want her to know he's gagging for it, making absolutely clear that both my mates, one anonymous, one to be referred to only as 'the hilarious one' will be there.

Kurt: Dear Mr and Mrs Keane, your child is a complete shithead. Love Kurt.

Episode 11 [3.11][edit]

Lindsay: Just you and your sock.

Episode 12 [3.12][edit]

Clare: May I remind everyone that sports day approaches? Parent have been invited. The police have been alerted. I hope those who fail to win the staff race will not display the kind of disgraceful behaviour we witnessed last year.
Kurt: (groans from floor)
Clare: Yes, I'm talking about you, Mr McKenna.

Matt(sat in an empty classroom): I know what you're thinking. There's nobody here, but Clare says we don't have a truancy problem anymore, and who am I to argue?
