Some of our favorite quotes from "Sex Education"

At Conmose we love to write about our favorite TV and series quotes and today we have a new article for you. Some time ago the second season of the hilarious British Netflix show "Sex Education" was released and just like the first season it was awesome. There was just one thing that I did not like and that was the small amount of episodes. I mean 8 episodes, come on! I binged those eight episodes in one day and now I have to wait again. Season 3 has been confirmed by Netflix in a hilarious video, but due to the Corona crisis the production is delayed, so not sure when I can get my "next fix". If you want to know more about the show, you can read the article we wrote about the first season. One of the stars of the show is Gillian Anderson (also known as Dana Scully in "The X Files"). But enough about the show (just read the article), let's talk some quotes.

Although I could go on for a while (the show is a goldmine when it comes to quotes), I think I'll leave it at that for today. I can't wait for season 3 of the show, but I think it will be a long wait (due to the Corona crisis). What is your favorite "Sex Education" quote and who is your favorite character?
