the music program,

the annual senior

class field trip...

Excuse me?

You're talking about cutting

the music program?

You're actually

going to cut music?

I'm sorry. We simply

don't have the funds.

No, wait a minute,

Mr. Betcher.

We're talking

about Marty's job here.

How about all

the money we raised

in the car wash or

the silent auction?

Miss Flores, after expenses,

we only netted $750.

It's a drop in the bucket.

"Verbis defectis

musica incipit. "

That's Latin for, "Music

takes us where word cannot."

I mean, what about

the athletic program?

Those football players, they

get new jerseys every year.

You don't know.

Take a seat.

Come on. Why don't you just

take it easy on the guy?

Excuse me?

Let it go. Let it go.

Just back off him,

and let's move on already.

Why don't you not

tell me how to do my job?

Okay, and then why don't

you tell him the truth?

This is how we got

thrown out of softball.

Oh, and what would that be?

That you're cutting the music

program so he loses tenure.

That is ridiculous.

You are wasting

everyone's time.

Really? You know what?

You're wasting my time.

Okay, how does

a day without pay sound?

Bring it.


That's how you show your power?

You already docked me

a vacation day.

Oh! Oh, so... So that's
