Ok, look. The painting is a triptych. A triptyh has three panels, with something different painted on each of the panels. Lemony says in TAA "If I were to try to paint a triptych entitled 'The Baudelaire Orphans' Miserable Experiences at Prufrock Prep' I would paint Mr. Remora, Mrs. Bass, and a box of staples. See, Mr Remora represents Violet, the box of staples represents Sunny and Mrs. Bass represents Klaus
finally somethnig on this thread makes sense...
It would be a stroke of luck If Coach Genghis were hit by a truck
Or maybe it said in TUA because Lemony was talking about how he went there when it was closed down, and stuff, and looking...for..things..?
No, that never happened. It may well have been in the middle - oh forget it, I know I'm going to end up looking this up, why delay the inevitable?
TAA, Chapter Six, page 83:
"Prufrock Preparatory School is now closed. It has been closed for many years, ever since Mrs. Bass was arrested for bank robbery, and if you were to visit it no, you would find it an empty and silent place. If you walked on the lawn, you would not see any children running around, as there were on the day the Baudelaires arrived. If you walked by the building containing the classrooms, you would not hear the droning voice of Mr. Remora telling a story, and if you walked by the building containing the auditorium, you would not hear the scrapings and shriekings of Vice Principal Nero playing the violin. If you went and stood beneat the arch, looking up at the black letters spelling out the name of the school and its austere - a word which here means "stern and severe" - motto, you would hear nothing but the swish of the breeze through the brown and patchy grass."
"...you would find it an empty and silent place." The World is Quiet Here. If you'd like to believe that, anyway.

Gosh, I have memory lapses....sorry 'bout that, I forget all the time if you haven't noticed already ::)lol....but yeah, "The World Is Quiet Here." does make sense when he talks about the closed down Prufrock Prep...and.....is there anything important about what he says there? Like, about the grass? But grass gets brown pretty fast, so...nothing about what he really said is THAT important... :(Unless you call Mr. Remora's droning voice important....actually..nah.
