You see, it's these

factors, ladies and gentlemen,

that lead to

a widespread shortage

of clean drinking water

in the region,

leaving thousands

upon thousands

of diseased, dying people.

Your support

may be the last

chance we have

of ending this suffering.

We are not

gonna miss it.

Not on my watch!

I remember when a dear

friend of mine, Sam atwell,

when he first approached me

about joining this mission,

and it was his


that sparked my passion

to make a difference.

His actions

have saved lives,

his message...

well, it's brought people

all over the world

closer to our lord,

our savior.

He is a leader.

He is a servant.

He also just happens

to be my best friend.

It is now

my distinct pleasure

to introduce to you the man

behind this mission.

Ladies and gentlemen, my good friend, Mr.

Sam atwell!

Beep, beep,

beep, beep,

beep, beep, beep

beep, beep,

beep, beep, beep.

Morning, Baker.

High is 97,

and your low is 75.

Sam, buddy, you can't

bail on me. I mean it.

Yes, I can. No, you can't, Sam.


What did she say exactly?

Okay, she said,

"Abby and I are going to go to

worship service this afternoon."

Don't know why

this is funny.

"Bring Sam along,

and we'll meet at church."

You know what? You need to take Baker.

I'm not taking Baker.

No way. I need somebody

who can party, Sam.

Somebody like me,

and you're closest...

At church?

Oh, yeah.

Phil, I'm just sensing

the gloomy skies over you, man.

Look alive.

The floor's lava.

Next time you can

do that with a smile.

Tyler, I'm gonna leave in a sec

if you want to come with me.

I got to bail, man. Still got to

finish these internship apps.

Why are you going

so early, anyway?

I got a meeting

before class.

Give this to Baker

if he gets up, okay?

What time... What time

does this class end?

30, Pierce.

Which is

just crazy

because this church thing's

popping off at 6:00 P.M.

All right, what are

we even wearing...

hey, all right!

That's great! Good!

Okay, listen, if you

want to be colorful,

Moses apparently had a whole

bunch of colors on his coat,

so I got something

made out of fuchsia...

maybe a skinny black tie.

Have a bit of edge.

Phil, grab my keys

in my bag, please.

I owe you, man.

I do. Appreciate that.

As long as everybody's happy.

I'll see you guys later.

It is not that bad.

It is that bad.

No, it's not. Sam, I haven't

slept in three weeks.

Okay, I've got

stats homework

growing out of

my backseat.

And to top it all off, I've got to

go in front of the I.F.C. Tonight

and deny all of the hazing

allegations they have on you guys.


I'm not like you all.

I can't just get up in front of

people and just lie to their faces.

Okay. Who's your

stats Professor again?

You're in Elliot's class, right?


And did he start off

the year talking about

how even Einstein

failed math as a kid?

Yeah. Yeah, pretty

amazing story, right?

Only problem is,

that story

never happened.

Einstein didn't fail

math as a kid.

He mastered differential

calculus before he was 15.

Teachers still tell their

students that today because it...

It inspires a sense

of hope that their students

can overcome obstacles

and achieve their dreams.

Sometimes people do

want to be lied to.

So you want me

to sell out?

No, I want you

to buy in.

Look, Phil,

I think you're bad-ass, dude.

I really do.

But if you want to join a fraternity,

make sure there's one to join.

You're gonna be all right.

You know that, don't you?

Morning, gentlemen.

Morning, sir.

Grab Phil's stats book along
