Oh, my God, he's here! Not all people react pleasantly with the changes. Well, what I mean is. He's dressed in a gray suit with a gray shirt, and a dark gray tie with little gray dots. A different teacher lectures a different class of students. I don't want to put on some makeup.
Jennifer: Only on my parents' side. What can I get you two? But in a secularized world all laws are arbitrary. Why is Bud ashamed to have helped her? They asked me What it was about and I like didn't remember 'cause we had it back in tenth grade. Christianity, to be successful, must be grounded in a vital relationship with an immanent God of meaning. Color should not be hidden in a Technicolor Pleasantville. We'll just go to the meeting.
I bet you thought I was just a fan or something. Sin was portrayed as colorful and interesting. We are stuck here until that guy shows up again. Whitey leans out of the car and leers. That's just what firemen did. Hey, pumpkin, what's that smell? Miss Peters: That's right, Tommy, it's not as long.
And it isn't just 'cause you're a great bowler. I grew up in the 1950s, and while things were different, I do not believe for a second that they were better. The chess club meets at one end and there are some teachers at the other.

I thought the books were blank. Something I took away from this movie was the emphasis of individuality. Just don't forget about me. Your breakfast is getting cold. But it's just not fair.
No, it's not like you think it's funny or dorky. This erosion of meaning through these images only within the worldview of a pluralistic society which has no values based on a transcendent God. And every one of those things is in you all the time. Do you know how it ends? That concludes the first hour of the Pleasantville marathon. That meeting's not for me. The cinematography of this scene is very powerful. The men nod and mumur.
You're coming to this meeting. Well, you know, like real red. I'm not gonna do it. David comes flying around the corner in complete jubilation. She leans back a little more, draping her arm across the top of the seat. You want to go out with me tonight? Far off in the distance, a young man comes racing out of the soda shop, pulling off his little paper hat as he goes. Slowly what emerges is a clear conflict of values between the routine on one hand, and inspiration and improvisation on the other.
