I booked my first national.

Nestl Quik.

It was hard, because

I'm lactose intolerant.

Anyway, have you ever heard

of a spit bucket?

So this is our homeroom.

We have Mr. Browne.

My mom says

he's a little weird.


Then I was in the chorus of

the Radio City Music Hall

Christmas Spectacular.

I auditioned

for Annie on Broadway.

I got two callbacks for Molly,

but I guess they went

in a different direction.

Hey, Charlotte!

Don't you ever stop talking?

So this is the cafeteria.

The food here is okay

for school food.

Or do you eat special food?

Wow! This reminds me of my

guess spot on Law & Order.

So the science elective

is supposably really hard.

So you probably won't be

spending much time here.

No offense,

but if you've never been

in a real school before...

Dude, he's been home schooled.

Okay, I'm just saying.

Science is supposably

really hard.

But you're taking it,

too, right?


maybe you could fail together.

Why don't you

get out of the way,

so he can check it out?


I mean, there's nothing much

to see. Desks. Chairs.

The incubator. Bunsen burners.

Those are some

really gross science posters.

Oh! And this is an eraser.

He knows

what an eraser is.

How am I supposed to know

what he knows?

He doesn't say anything.

You know

what an eraser is, right?


you have to say something.

Yeah, I know

what an eraser is.

Is... Is your name Jack

or Jackwill?

(GIGGLES) You thought his name

was Jackwill?

Yeah, a lotta people call me

by my first and last name.

I don't know why.

Got any other questions?

Actually, I've got

a question for Auggie.

What's the deal

with your face?

I mean were you

in a car crash or something?

What? Tushman said we could

ask questions if we wanted to.
