Episode 311: “Thoughts and Bears”
This upcoming season will be the final one, and “Teachers” delivers 10 hilarious episodes. The premiere episode takes a poke at the Betsy DeVos “guns for grizzlies” quote, where a neighbor moves in across the street from Fillmore Elementary school and he has a pet grizzly bear! Using the bear as an allegory for gun control, the teachers attempt to help the neighbor and their local councilwoman understand the danger of having a 600 lb. bear hanging out on the lawn across the street.
BETSY DEVOS: “Guns in school protect against grizzly bears.”
QUOTES FROM THE PREMIERE EPISODE:
Ms. Cannon: “Oh, looks like we got a new neighbor.”
Ms. Snap: “Ugh, good! That old couple was so annoying. The husband getting wheeled out for dialysis every day… it’s like we get it you’re dying.”
Councilwoman Taylor: “You want me to ban bears?”
Ms. Bennigan: “No, never said that. Didn’t even imply it.”
Councilwoman Taylor: “What’s next? You don’t like the way some Shih tzu looks at you so we outlaw ALL shih tzus?”
