This is Tim's yearbook.

- Chris?

- Oh my God!

Listen to this.

Listen to this.

"When we're together,

I feel"...

- Gimme!

- "Like we're not in high school, but we're

- in our own Chris-andJamie little world."

- Tim... okay.


- "You're my best friend..."

- Please, don't read that.

"But I want to be

more than that"?


"Hoping to be

your boyfriend.

Sincerely, Chris Brander,


It's a joke! That's a joke

between me and Jamie!

Holy shit!

Check out his shirt!

Aw, he's gonna cry.

See ya!

G'bye, fatty!


Try a salad!

- Chris!

- Leave me alone!

Don't worry about it.

It happens to everybody.

Chris! We need to talk

about what you wrote.

Is that really

how you feel?

I don't know.

Maybe. Why?

Because that's the nicest thing

anyone's ever written me.

It was?


I love you, Chris...

- like a brother.

- Hmm?

- We're friends, right?

- For sure!

Ah, you pussy!

Shut up, Tim!

Don't you people have anything

better to do?!

God! Just leave

him alone!

You jerks!

- I'll show you!

- Ooh!

I'll show all of you!

This town

is full of losers

and I'm pulling

out to win!


Chris, come back!

- My name is Chris Brander!

- Chris, let's talk!

You remember that name!

'Cause I'm gonna be somebody!

I don't know what to say.

I mean,

the sex is good,

but I'm a person too.

I mean, I have

feelings and needs

other than

just physical!

Don't you have anything

to say for yourself?

I think you've pretty much

said it all.

You know what?

This just isn't working out.

Have a great life,

'cause Athena's out!

I don't know why you

just don't take me serious!


I guess Athena's out.

God, can you

believe that?

I get dumped four days

before Christmas.

- I saw.

- Yeah, and yet, you did nothing.

Technically, that makes you
