we're still going to eat it.

Carter's an athlete.

He needs to have at least

1,200 empty calories a day...

...otherwise he might faint.

- What is it that you play, Carter?

- I'm on the swim team.

Ah, swim team.

But I'm actually in training,

so I can't eat...

- He can't go hungry.

- Oh.

- Cookies, Mom.

- No.

- I know you've got them.

- No, I don't.

- Come on.

- No.

Come on, stop it.

All right.

Second shelf from the top.

Hey, where are you going?

To Andy's to study.

I've got afternoon practice.

Oh. Well, okay guys.

Have fun.

And please be careful, all right?

And dinner's at 6:00.

And don't be late.

I don't want to have

to reheat this thing.

Want one?

Take one.

They're good.

You know, I think you might be

a bad influence, dude.

That's a switch.

I don't hear that too often.

Nah, I guess you don't.

Well, nice to meet you.

Sort of.

Yeah. See you later.

Why is changing the typeface

such a radical idea?

You'd think I'm suggesting

we give out condoms.

...in home room or something.

You ever think you meet

so much resistance.

...because you're so damn pushy?

- You think?

- A little.

Especially when you're inspired.

It's because they don't know sh*t.

The paper could be so much better.

Have you paid any attention

to the crummy stock they use?

Not really.

Well take a look at it sometime.

It sucks.

What do I have to do

to make them listen to me?

Your attitude could be

a little bit better.

Yeah. Whatever.

Eat me.

Ew! Gross!

Tell me about this swimming guy.

Nothing to tell.

He's staying until Sunday.

He was in my room

when I came home.

He found some of my magazines.


Oh, God!


I thought you'd still be here.

Wasn't practice over

a long time ago?

Yeah. So?

It's time to eat.

My mom told me to come get you.
