Emily: Poor Mr Rosenfeld… he's just trying to give us a positive, feel-good exercise, and there I go ruining everything… I was sure he would say something added - tell me off, or congratulate me on apologising maybe, or .. I don't know. But he didn't say anything. I think he didn't know what to do with me.
Dee: Well, I'm proud of you for apologising.
Emily: Because I was halfway nice to people for once?
Dee: Sure, that - but it was brave of you. It can be hard to swallow your pride like that. Especially if you don't like the people you're apologising to.
Emily: I didn't swallow any pride! I'm not too proud to apologise, I'm too proud not to. I have no respect for people who can't see where they're at fault and apologise appropriately. There's nothing face saving about refusing to apologise. It doesn't make you less wrong. So if I hadn't apologised today, I'd be ashamed of myself.
Skateboard teen (off panel, throwing a crumpled up drink can): HEY! Crazy girl!
