and start class...

Do you think you're the only one

who can forge documents?

Hm. Do you have a...?

Five days of rations,

spare clothes, GPS, cash.

- What's your name?

- John Smith.

- Where are you from?

- Toronto.

You seem kind of tan for Toronto.

Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I know the drill, OK?

You keep this on you.

I'll call you every hour.

If you don't pick up,

I know something's wrong.

- Come on, every hour?

- That, or you can home school.

And I'll be your teacher.


Hey, John, don't be stupid.

You keep your head down.

I know how to blend in.

OK, doll. Take a seat.

I'll just print up your schedule.

Back in a jiffy.

I know she's

the star photographer,

but it's not fair

to the other students.

She's using up all the vital supplies.

Emory, come on. "Strangers in

Paradise." At least she's creative.

The pictures on her website

are totally inappropriate.

Mr. Behrman, if you want to keep

the photos, you should just say so.

Keep the photos?

They're already all over the Internet!

It's a violation to post things like

this without people's permission.

You have to do something about this.

Mr. Behrman,

excuse us for a few minutes, OK?

Sarah, this is not like you.

Is there something going on?

- Everything's fine.

- Sarah?

- Honestly.

- Have a seat.

You can't let a few negative students

get you down.

Look, I don't want you to isolate

yourself from the rest of the school.

- You should enjoy this year.

- OK, I'll try.

- Good.

- Can I please have my camera back?

No more photos on your website

without teacher and student permission.


Here's your schedule.

Homeroom is calculus.

That's B-wing, room seven...

Oh, Sarah! Could you show our friend

to his locker? He's from Santa Fe.

Job fair starts tomorrow.

Everybody, job fair starts tomorrow.
