mind now,

I have less than 24 hours

to finish my paper.

So, goodbye.

Well, your basis is way off

in the first four pages,

and the facts of the Spanish

American War are wrong.

And Professor Huff will

catch that in a second.

How do you

know that?

I took his class

last year.

I'm sorry for reading

your first pages.

I got an A

in his class.

I can help you

if you'd like.

(GROANS) I was so

mad the first time I saw him

that I didn't even realize

how handsome he was.


He was beautiful.

Gotta give him that.

The devil sure knows

how to put a package together.

Standing in front of me

was all the things I loved.

He was dark, sexy.


- It was 1497.

- No!

Look, this is too

hard for me to remember.

Can we take a break?

I don't wanna talk

about this stuff anymore.

You don't have

much time.

It's too much, okay?

I'm on a brain overload.


So, let's talk

about you.

Those papers you needed,

what were they?

Tell me.

I think I've found a solution

to an age-old problem.

I'm creating a battery

that can recharge itself.

If it works, it can be used

in cars, homes, you name it.

And I'm gonna be so rich.

While saving the environment,

of course.

Of course.



He was so charming.

So slick.

I just wish to high heaven

someone would have said to me

right then and there,

"Girl, get up and run as fast

as you can

"because this man

will leave you devastated."

How'd you do?

Tell me.

But we studied.

Yo, I'm sorry.

Let me talk to Professor Huff.

Maybe we get you a make-up.

No. No, okay?

I mean, this is all

just a waste of money.

I can't keep

doing this to my mother.

To be honest

with you, I mean,

she was surprised

I was even going to school.

I wasn't as smart

as my sisters.
