Why? You got psoriasis?

(car backfires)

Well, here we are again.

- But this time we're seniors.

- We're gonna rule the school.

(all laugh)

Jan, that is so adolescent.

- We are adolescent.

- We don't have to flaunt it.

OK, girls.

Let's go get 'em.

Blanche, do you have

the new schedules?

Yes, Miss McGee,

I just had my hands on them.

Oh, good, they'll be

nice and smudged.

Here we are. If it had been a snake,

it would've bitten me.

These are the schedules

we couldn't find last semester.

Next year,

you might find this semester's.

- I've got Kenickie again.

- He's been here longer than I have.

First day of school and already

my castor oil is missing.

How many days

till Christmas vacation?

- 86?

- And counting.

- Can I help you?

- Yes, it's my first day.

- I'm not sure where I should be.

- Welcome to Rydell.

You'll have to fill out

these forms, but...

Excuse me a minute.

I'll be right back.

- Do you have a pencil, please?

- Yes, dear. There you are.


Jeez. Every teacher I got this year

has flunked me at least once.

You'll spend your time

in McGee's office.

- She'll wish she'd never seen me.

- Yeah? And what are you gonna do?

I just ain't gonna take her crap.

I don't take no crap from nobody.

- Sonny?

- Oh, hello, ma'am.

- Shouldn't you be in home room?

- I was going for a walk.

- You were dawdling.

- Yes, ma'am.

That is no way to start

a new semester, Mr LaTierri.

(mutters in Italian)

Perhaps a session of banging erasers

after school would put you on track.

Yes, ma'am.

- Do you plan to stand there all day?

- No, ma'am. I mean, yes.

- Well, which is it?

- No, ma'am.

- Good. Then move.

- Yes, ma'am.

I'm glad you didn't take

any of her crap, Sonny.

You would have told her off, huh?

Mr LaTierri.
