Wild Child

Synopsis: Since Malibu brat Poppy Moore's mom passed away, she has pushed her rich, usually absent dad Gerry shamelessly. When his patience wears out, she's shipped off to her mother's former English boarding school for girls, Abbey Mount. On her first day she makes enemies of most dorm mates, especially dominant lacrosse school captain Harriet, and the school's principal Mrs. Kingsley. Unwilling to accept the strict regime, she decides to misbehave and take the blame for everyone until she's dismissed. The school only appealing feature for her is Kingsley's dashing son Freddie. When the dream prince transfers his favor from ambitious, uptight Harriet to unruly Poppy, that changes everything.

You'll soon settle in.

- Hi, how do you do?

- I already have a sister.

It's just school lingo.

I'll be your friend,

a helping hand, that's all.

Okay, but I choose my friends,

and FYI, you don't

make the cut.

I'm sure that comment

would sting...

a lot more if I knew

what FYI meant.

But, for the moment,

let's just pretend...

it's had the desired

effect, shall we?

Saddle up, girls.

We've got ourselves a bronco.

Mrs. Kingsley, a gift.

One for you and

one for Freddie.


- Thank you.

- I shot them myself.

Oh, I don't doubt

that you did.

Well, perhaps you'd

like to keep a hold...

of them while I welcome

back the first years.

Nice thought, though.

Harriet. Head Girl.

You shake the hand

of the Head Girl...

out of respect.

When the Head Girl

has earned my respect,

then I'll shake

her hand, biatch.

- I'm sorry?

- Apology accepted.

Stunningly horridious ego...

desperately seeks

a good bashing.

Can we oblige? Methinks so.

We think so, too.

I'll call you

tomorrow morning,

as soon as I'm back in LA.

I hope your flight gets

seriously delayed.

And I hope your bags

end up in Kazakhstan.

I'll come back for you...

at the end of the

semester, all right?

Sweetheart, you

know I love you.


I have to find this CD to play

for you guys. There it is.

You can borrow them,

but only indoors.

Yeah, my mum won't let me

wear high heels.

I've got to be reserve...

because I'm not

there all the time.

I heard this on the radio.

- Thank you.

- Nice catch.

Excuse me.

Hi. I've been

assigned this room.

You need to leave.

Oh, wow, communal.

Well, it's bed number

five or the corridor.

Your choice, mate.

Move your stinking

socks, Drippy.


You lock away your chocolate?

Key information, if it's...

the Wagon Wheel
