I bet he did.

I'm not gonna get inked

by some rando dude.

My Dad would torch his shit.

X-rays have a lot of energy

so when we look at the

universe in x-ray light,

we see some of

the hottest gas

and the most

powerful explosions.

Infa-red light is given off

by much cooler objects

than the stars.

So what's X?

Come on Jayme. You know this.

We went over

this the other day.

I know. Just give me a second.

If I didn't need

math to graduate,

I'd be telling algebra

to kiss my ass!

Okay. Here.


Hey. Um Mattie just...

we're just going

over some algebra.

Right. Are we gonna do this?

Dude. Relax.

Uh I'm sorry. I gotta go.

Are you still coming

to my home tonight?


Later gator.

Here. Don't lose this one.

I won't.

All the white ministers got

like three baby mammas

so I told my ma hey, I'm gonna

start going to a white church.

I'm serious.

Don't gotta dress up.

Don't gotta listen to

no T.D. Jakes wannabe

put your business on the street.

You in and out in like thirty

minutes and they feed you.

Feed you?

Yeah. You know them little

wafers and the juice?

All right.

What are you gonna do

about the music though?

I say we bring them some

up home music, you know?

Show 'em how we do.

You forget how to walk?

You were in my way.

Just leave it, man.

No, no, no, no.

You were in my fucking way.

Dwight, let's get

out of here man.

Who the f*ck you talking to man?

Hey. I'm going

about my business

all of a sudden this

little fucking monkey

comes out of nowhere.

Hey. Say that shit again.

Todd, back up, man.

Say that shit again, huh?

You heard what I said.

I'm gonna f*ck you up son.

I can say it again.

No, I'm gonna f*ck you up.

Keep talking shit.


Miss Downey, you didn't

hear what this racist...

I do not care what he said.
