The quote from Emily (Micahel Bedard and Barbara Cooney) referred to in this episode:

“What is poetry?” I asked.

… “Listen to Mother play. She practices and practices a piece, and sometimes a magic happens and it seems the music starts to breathe. It sends a shiver through you. You can’t explain it, really; it’s a mystery. Well, when words do that, we call it poetry.
