Dear Jamie,

when we're together,

I feel like we're

not in high school,

but in our own little

Chris-andJamie world.

Whether we're watching

"Party of Five"

or practicing our cheers,

I feel like I can

just be myself.

Jamie, we've been friends

for a really long time,

but I want to be

more than that.

Oops! I don't think so.

Hoping to be

your boyfriend.

Sincerely, Chris Brander.


I swear

By the moon and the stars

in the skies

I'll be there,


And I swear

Like a shadow

that's by your side

I'll be there

For better or worse...

- Raise your hand if your brother's a homo!

- Till death do us part...

- Get out of my room!

- Mom!

Stupid! Anybody ever hear

of privacy around here?!

- I swear

- You're the homo.


Yeah, I signed

your yearbook.

Oh, you feel the same

way about me?

Oh, you want a kiss?


I signed your yearbook.


I'm opening your gate.

What's up, guys?

- Class of '95.

- Mm-mm.

Hey, what's up, Leon, Trevor?

Great season. Great.

I love you.

- Hey, guys.

- Chris Brander, ladies and gentlemen!

- Happy graduation, Chris.

- What's going on?

I thought it was supposed to be

just the four of us.

The Palaminos decided

to throw Jamie

- a surprise graduation party.

- Oh, that's just great!

- Tonight's the night.

- Where is she?

I think I saw her go in the garage

with the football team.

- Sweet.

- Hey. No fear, Chris, huh? This is your

- chance to get out of the "friend zone."

- Yeah.

- Huh?

- Okay.

I give props to hip hop,

so hip hop hooray...


- Chris!

- Yay!

You came, finally!

I'm so happy.

Oh, come on,

- God.

- Yeah.

What's up?

There's something I've been

meaning to say to you.


There you are.

- Hey, Tim.

- Shut up, chubs.

Funny guy!


- will you sign my yearbook, please?

- Can I do it later, Tim?

Can I do you later?

I need a beer!

I can't believe...

- I went out with him.

- You went out with him.

Jinx! 1-2-34-5-6-7, can't say

a thing till I say...

Come in.

- Oh, hi. Hi, Jamie.

- Hey, Dusty.

I was hoping

I'd find you here.

I didn't know

you played guitar.

L-I r-really...

- I really want to be a famous musician.

- Huh.

And, um,

I wrote you a song.

He wrote me a song!

That's so cute.

It's called

"Jamie Smiles."


When Jam...

Hold on.

When Jamie...

He's crazy.

When Jamie...

God damn it!

Come on, Dusty!

Dusty, come here.

Maybe you should come back

another time when you're...

- Oh, no, I got it.

- You can come back

and then play it

for us later, okay?

- I really... I've got it. It's beautiful.

- Yeah.

- It is.

- Bye, Dusty.



Oh, I almost forgot.

I got you a little

something right here.

Okay. Now I know

it's a little dorky,

but I had to do it.

So look at it.

Will you put it
