*In micro, student sees that Hinkle has a binder clip that has the word "crap" printed on it* Student: Mr Hinkle, where did you get that binder clip? Hinkle: I steal these from children.
Hinkle: Excuse me, as your teacher do I have the right to rename you? And the answer, of course, is yes! Hinkle: Adam is now The Ad. Hinkle: Like, for example, Helen is now Hel ... I can't call him Lawrence, I just can't. Lawrence is now Lair.
// Hinkle is talking about being a student teacher at some school in Columbus, Ohio during desegregation Hinkle: At this school there would be 18, 19 year olds in 9th grade. There were a lot of fights. The first week of school, some teachers were crying in the teachers lounge, so I asked them what happened. Apparently some kid got stabbed. He was in sixth grade or something, and his name was John. The second week, there was a fight in the hallway, and I had to break it up. I had anger management issues and I hit him. I punched him twice, and he went down in 2 hits. At that point I knew I was doomed, and at the end of the day, I got a call from the main office. "Mr. Hinkle, please come to the main office." And, so, I was thinking I had to say bye to my teaching career, but instead he congratulated me on my great work. He said the kid needed it.
//During 8th period Logic //Hinkle stands at the door staring into the classroom for a good 15 seconds Rose: Are you gonna come in? Hinkle: *walks in and hands paper over to William (student)* If you ever have any trouble with this guy tell me *talking to Rose* Hinkle: 'Cause in my class he is always ... asleep //Hinkle starts walking out Hinkle: Is this a math class? In my class they need to know ... I'm sorry to say ... you know what? ... subtraction //Hinkle walks out Rose: I shared a classroom with this guy for an entire semester and I would just sit in his class during my free period listening to him speak. And his speech is so addictive. I caught myself saying "You know what?" suddenly all of the time. Then I realized, I needed to get out of there.
//Mr. Hinkle discussing a test he needs to take to teach World History Mr. Hinkle: So I have to take a test about a class I've been teaching for 20 years! Haydn: So you know world history pretty well? Mr. Hinkle: Well I'd hope so... Haydn: Okay then when did the US sign the Declaration of Independence?? Mr. Hinkle: That's US history! Not world history! Haydn: What? Is the US not a part of the world?!
//Microeconomics, discussing cigarettes as an example of a negative externality Hinkle: I hate cigarettes. Isn’t it great when you go out with a girl when you were 16 and she smells like smoke all over? Joseph: Was this supposed to happen to me already?
Mr. Hinkle: "You all should walk out of here knowing one thing: never commit crimes after you're 18. Commit all your crimes before."
//Administrator lady comes into Econ Administrator Lady: I need Marcus Benyamin. Don't worry, you're not in big trouble. Nadia: Only medium trouble. Though knowing Marcus, it's probably medium-rare and still a little bloody.
Hinkle: So back when I used to teach at this school, it was a pretty scary place. All the teachers were women, so of course they wanted me to break up the fights. So this one time, these two boys were fighting, and I tried to stop them, and somehow, my fist just *happened* to hit one of the guys in the face...The fight stopped immediately, and I got a rep pretty quickly. Later that week, I'm told I have a meeting with the principal about the fight. So, of course I'm *starts biting his nails*... I walk in, and the secretary goes, "He'll see you now." and I'm like *crosses himself* 'cause I know I'm gonna get the boot. I walk in, and he says to me, "Hinkle, nice job with the fight."
