The story behind the quote: This week’s quote was submitted by DJ Miller. I would like to thank him for the help with this quote as well as how to source the video where the quote appears.
This week’s quote comes from the animated series, Arthur. The cartoon focuses on the growing up pains of one Arthur Read, an anthropomorphic aardvark. Each episode basically has Arthur learning an important lesson about life.
The quote itself is from the episode entitled “Arthur’s Underwear”, which is in the fifth episode of the second season. Arthur has dreams about being in his underwear after he sees his friend, Binky Barns, ripped his pants and he started laughing. Arthur’s best friend Buster Buster admits that he told a few people, hoping he could find a way for Arthur to get over his dream. In his panic, Arthur’s pants get caught on the tray rack and he accidentally rips them open, partially revealing his underwear. Everyone in the cafeteria starts laughing at Arthur, much to his embarrassment. Binky comes to the rescue by using two lunch trays to cover him up and leads him to the kitchen.
There, Mrs. MacGrady sews them back up for Arthur. After Mrs MacGrady fixes Arthur’s pants, Arthur laments he can’t show his face to his classmates anymore. In response, she tells him the quote.
Geek wisdom: Everybody gets embarrassed in life, no matter what or who they are. Don’t let embarrassing moments stop you from being who you are and living your life.
