What kind of camera do you use?


That's not gonna win you friends.

- Check it out.

- What?

Tell that to the principal

with a fish tank for an office.

It's kind of hard not to hear.

Sorry. This whole place

is kind of a fish tank.


Room seven is down the hall,

and, uh, that's your locker right there.

Good luck... um...

Oh, uh, John...


OK. You don't want to tell me your name.

That's fine.

That's really my name.

John Smith.

What's up, man? You new?

Mark James. This is Kevin,

Jackson, Tyler and Max.

- Hey, man, what's up?

- John.

Good to meet you, John.

Where are you from?

- Santa Fe.

- Oh, New Mexico.

Play any ball out there?

- Football?

- Yeah.

- No.

- Play anything?

Baseball? Soccer? Ping-pong?


OK. No, that's cool, man.

That's totally cool.

We could always use more

boosters in the stands, right?

Listen. You need anything,

you ask us, OK?

- We got you.

- I'll keep that in mind.

Good talking to you, big guy.

Look who it is.

Watch out, man.

Sorry, Sam.


Wait up, fool.


Gotta love the classics.

Homecoming king versus

the science nerd.

Just get better with time, don't they?

- That guy, Mark, he's...

- Soon to be irrelevant.

He's in the third year of

the best four years of his life.

So, she was like, "The solar system's

sun does not revolve around the Earth."

I said, "Yeah, right."

Hey, Spock!

- Nailed it!

- Heads up! UFO, brother!

That had to hurt.

Hey, stay down, man.

Just stay down.

He's gonna cry. He's gonna cry.

- Oh, Mommy's coming!

- Oh...

- Right in the face.

- Hey, are you OK?

- Assholes.

- Yo, new dude! Little help?


I'm fine! Get off me.

Come on, man!

- You OK?

- No.

That's quite an arm

you got there.

Yeah. Who knew?
