Help, angels!

All may yet be well.

Now he's praying, and now I'll do it.

And so he goes to heaven.

Don't talk. Just do it.

Hey, Claudius.

You killed my father.

Big mistake.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark,

and Hamlet is taking out the trash.

- Stay thy hand, fair prince.

- Who said I'm fair?

No one's going to tell this sweet prince,

"Good night."

To be or not to be.

Not to be.

The whole morning? He wasn't.

No, I said, "He wasn't."

He wasn't at school today.

He's sick as a lamb, poor dog.

Regale me with the story of your life

starting this morning, 8:30, first period,

American history and make this really good.

I mean something along the lines of,

"I cut so I could donate a kidney."

You were at the movies again, weren't you?

And that crazy old guy is an accessory.

- Nick's not crazy.

- Damn it, Danny!

You know, I'm in there, lying to a principal,

me, a charter member of the PTA.

And what for? So you can go to the movies?


I didn't choose any of this. I didn't choose it.

I didn't say, "Hey, what the hell,

"let me see what it would be like

to be a widow before I'm 40, give that a try."

- I know that.

- Give me a hug.

- I won't cut again.

- Let me hear the "p" word on that.

- Promise.

- All right.

Oh, Jesus! I'm late. I got to get to work.

All right.

Lock the top lock

the minute I close the door, okay?

And do not open this door for anyone.

- Bye.

- Bye.

She called her mother in

and they're trying to do something about it.

They had cereal bugs.

I can't wait to see the new...

...continue to be a big problem...

Come here often?

Ron Rice for one reason.

What you eating?

Nothing, maggots.

You alone? Okay. Move it!

Do yourself to the drain.

Tough guy.

Do it. I'll make it easier for you.
