Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Jim Morales in this scene?

This is a moment in episode seven, after plot-related shenanigans cause Odd to start talking like a crazy person and steal Jim’s phone, and Yumi ends up going to return it. I know it’s a silly comic relief interlude, but to tell you the truth this whole conversation really got to me.

Because I had a teacher who did this for me last year, when I was in the middle of an anxious breakdown. And it really, really meant a lot that she cared so much. I’d been flaking on assignments all semester and not doing my best work, but when I went to her office in tears about how my arms were in so much pain that I couldn’t type anymore, she gave me nothing but kindness and understanding words. She offered to go to the Disability Resource Center with me as an advocate.

And that’s what makes Jim a good teacher. Even after all the shit Odd’s pulled on him the past two years, even after countless instances of skipping class and cracking jokes and disrespect and being an unreliable student, THIS is Jim’s first reaction when Odd steals his phone.

He is a good teacher and he does not get enough appreciation.
