During Annabelle's first English class with Ms. Bradley, random quotes and poems are written on the chalk board, which becomes visible while Ms. Bradley quotes a poem by Walt Whitman. During this time, the lyrics "open your heart, catch my disease" followed by "B. Lee" from Ben Lee's 2005 single "Catch My Disease" can be seen in the lower left corner of the board, written in yellow chalk. This is presumably a joke quote, that has no relevance to the scene.

After having watched so many lesbian films and being utterly disappointed with the majority of them, it was a relief to sit through "Loving Annabelle." The story touches the heart and is an incredible intro for Katherine Brooks into what I hope will be a long, fruitful career as a Writer/Director for feature films. She takes a controversial subject and handles it well without compromising reality. I am grateful for her courage not to take the easy way out. It sets a standard I hope other film makers are willing to step up to.The excellent cast and direction make this a very memorable viewing experience.
