Recess: School's Out

Synopsis: It's the most exciting time of year at Third Street Elementary-- the end of the School Year! But boredom quickly sets in for protagonist TJ Detweiler, as his friends (the other 5 protagonist children) are headed for Summer Camp. One day, while passing by the school on his bike, he notices a green glow coming from the school's auditorium. This is the work of the insidious ex-principal of Third Street, Phillium Benedict and his gang of ninjas and secret service look-alikes! Benedict is planning to get rid of Summer Vacation using his newly-acquired Tractor Beam, which he stole from the US Military Base in an effort to raise US Test Scores, and it's up to the Recess Gang to stop him! In the end, TJ and the gang, with the help from the other students, Principal Prickly, Ms. Finster and the other teachers, destroy the laser, Benedict and his henchmen are arrested, and the kids (TJ's buddies) decide to spend their Summer with TJ.

for being such a mean principal,

taking away hall passes,

giving guys recess detention,

refusing toacceptsicKnotes

just causeitdoesntlooK

forten wholeminutes, withnobreaK!

Man, I feel ashamed ofmyselffor all

the terrible, rotten things Ive done.

And nextyear,

I promise to--

Why, Principal Prickly, sir,

what a surprise.

Why doyou do this to me, Detweiler ?

Doyou enjoy tormenting me ?

- Doyou hate me ?

- On the contrary, sir, I have

the utmost respect foryou.

Dont be smart with me, boy. All year

long youve been pushing me, testing me.

- I dont know whatyou mean, sir.

- Oh, really ?

How about the timeyou convinced

the F.B.I. I was a Chinese agent

and got me arrested ?

You were giving us a speech on

personal hygiene. You had to be stopped.

How about the time

you forged my signature

and ordered a motorboat for the school ?

It was for the kindergarteners.

Owning a boats always been

kind ofa dream oftheirs.

Ive had enough ofyour pranks.

This time Im really gonna

throw the book atyou.

With all due respect, sir, youd better

get throwing, causeyoure out oftime.

- Huh ?

- Its the last day ofschool, sir.

Ive only got 20 more seconds

offourth grade left. Look.

In some ways, people,

this day is a bummer for me.

But in otherways

its the ultimate high,

because every milestone thatyou kids

pass is another step towards--

- Uh, Miss Grotke ?

- Yes, Spinelli ?

I dont mean

to interrupt, but--

Oh, yes !

Be my guest.
