Lily: The problem is, the whole school system is based on obedience and control. The kids are forced to be there, and YOU'RE the prison guard trying to make their captivity a positive and useful experience.
(panel with Simon teaching people in a prison cell)
Simon: Well, THIS is helping my confidence.
Lily: No, hear me out. I'm sure you're a great teacher. You don't ACT like a prison guard, and that's good. But if you accept the fact that you've been placed in that role, maybe you can sympathize with the apathy and rebellion that the system inherently encourages.
(one of the students in the prison cell says "Why do I even have to be here?")
