I'm almost done.

This place is kinda scary at night.

I think I've been down here

maybe twice my whole life.

I'm not supposed to be here.

I got the code.

Yeah. You left it open.

It's all right. Nobody comes

down here at this hour.

Do you want to join me?

No. I can't.

I can't swim.

You can't swim?

Don't you know that everybody's born

knowing how to swim?

We have to learn to walk and to run

and do all that other crap...

...but we come out already knowing.

Yeah, well, I must have forgot.


You must have forgotten.

You're correcting my English?

Come on.

What do you say?

A few laps before dinner?

- It's easy.

- No.

I can't.

I don't have a bathing suit.

I'm not the athletic type, either.

Can't you tell?

Oh, I get it. You're all mental

and I'm all physical.

You know, you really need to stop

with those stereotypes.

I almost drowned once

in summer camp.

How can you be afraid?

It's just water.

I just told you.

Yeah? Well, that's bullshit.

Don't you know we're mostly

made up of water anyway?

You showed up

at one science class.

Big deal.

Oh, right. 'Cause jocks

can't know anything.

There you go again

with those stereotypes.

Come on, get in.

No. I don't have a bathing suit.

Are you nuts?

What are you so uptight about?

There's nobody here.

If you make me toss you in here...

...you'll have to walk all the way home

in your wet clothes.

Not so bad, huh?

Why are you making me do this?


One, two...

- What are you doing?

- Relax.

Relax. I've got you.

Lean back.

Lean back.


Bet you're not thinking

about drowning now, are you?

I'm hungry.

How about you?

How are you supposed to catch up

if you don't open a book?

I can't read that sh*t anymore.

I can feel my heart beat

in my eyeballs.
