- Watts.|- No, wait.

How long have you been a lesbian?

Excuse me?

You have a little bit too much up front|to be a guy, so you must be a lesbian.

I beg your pardon.

You know, a little too much|breastage here...

Shut up!

You faggot. Come on!

That's enough.|Break it up.

That's enough.

- Animal!|- Clear out.


Oh, sweetheart...

See, wait a minute, okay?

They jumped me. Why don't you|nail them? I didn't do anything.

Those aren't mine.

Oh, man, that's just for show.

I don't...

It's like, those were a gift|from your wife.

You just got detention, mister.

For what? For what?

Come on. We'll talk about it|in detention hall.

What's this?

It's unconfirmed,|but I got it from a reliable source.

- What?|- I think your father's in school.

Has Keith decided|on a school yet?

We're zeroing in on a few.

Well, he indicated to me that he was|interested in a couple of art schools.

I don't think that's gonna happen.

Comes out of an art school,|what's he qualified to do?

I'm looking for a good business program.|I think he has a good head for business.

Well, the indications|I've gotten...

are that he's more|creatively inclined.

Fine. But we're looking|for a business school.

He can be creative|in his spare time.

How's he doing otherwise?
