From Just Add Zombies


Juliet, stressed out teen, talks to fellow cast member Pessie about a third castmate who's been turned into a zombie.

JULIET

And maybe it’s not so bad being Sydney. She doesn’t have to do her homework anymore or study for the math final, which by the way is going to be horrible, and she can be in the play and not have to memorize lines. She doesn’t have to worry about college applications and one failing grade on a paper about Schrödinger’s Cat because she thought she was supposed to write about taking care of your pets. And she definitely doesn’t have her parents on her case 24/7, pushing her to play on the boys’ soccer team and never giving her a free second because every single thing she does is the most important event in her entire life and the path you walk is set in stone forever by what happens here. Or asking why don’t you have a boyfriend or don’t you think that boy is cute and why don’t you ask him so you can finally go to a dance with someone, and at least she doesn’t have to watch the cast list for Romeo and Juliet go up and explain why your name is Juliet and you can’t even get cast as yourself.
