So what, she's like your

girlfriend now or something?


I don't know.


That was f***in' air time there.

Ready to learn, kid?


Here we go.

I like to go in slow

and deep, you know?

You know what I'm

talking about there?

Does that embarrass you there?

Oh, yeah.

Ha, ha, ha, he is.

Look at you, you're

f***in' embarrassed.

Are you blushing?

It's the way you say it.

You're blushing.

Holy sh*t.

Oh, yeah.

Next one.

One hand.

One hand?

If you got to use two,

I'd f***in' shoot you.

What's the... the next one?

250, 250.

That's f***in' you right there.

Oh, yeah.

All f***in' day.

Oh, yeah.




Did you get my text?

I've texted you like twice.

Uh, no.

Must have been them Canadian

signals there, you know.

OK, let me see your phone.



F***, man.


I need to talk to you, OK?

Let's go outside.

Come on.

So why did the cow

cross the road?

I'm not in the mood, Casper,

He wanted to go

to the moo-vies.

My little sister

likes that one, so.

Where were you this morning?


Why are you so...

I needed you.


And you... look.

Uh, I don't know how

to tell you this.


Did someone die or something?

I'm pregnant.

I'm f***ing pregnant.


I need you, OK?

Can we make it work?

Will you make it work?


Do you love me?



Can we just then...


I'm not... I... we... just

don't apologize, you know?

Just my... just don't...

just don't worry about it.

Just give me some time.

I'll figure it out.

But don't worry about it, OK?

I'll figure it out.

I'll... I'm Casper f***ing Cote.

Yeah, I'll figure it out.

I'm going to go figure it, OK?

Yeah, I'll call you.

I'll-I'll... I'll

catch you later.

OK, so has anyone here

ever heard of the Jim twins?

The Jim twins.

No one?

All of you?

Jim Lewis and Jim Springer

were identical twins,

separated at birth,

given up for adoption

and raised by different

families in different parts

of the country, unaware

that the other even existed.

And then one day when they

were 39 years old, they met.

And they got to

talking, and guess what?

They found out that

they both married

women named Betty,

had gotten divorced,

and remarried to

women named Linda.

They both had sons

named James Alan.

They both bit their

nails and had migraines.

They both went to the

exact same beach in Florida

for vacation, both of them.

They both love NASCAR,

hated baseball.

They both voted the same,

drank the same beer,

smoked the same cigarettes.

When it was all said and

done, they both died apart

on the same day from

the same illness.

That's f***ed up.

Well... yeah, that's f***ed up.

We don't say that,

but yeah, it is.

So just think about how

maybe some of those choices,

maybe they're... maybe they

aren't choices at all.

Maybe some things are

beyond your control.

And so now, going back to

the story, well, where do you

guys think that Pony Boy

falls in... in all this?

Because certainly he's dealing

with a lot of peer pressure,


He's hanging out with his

older brother, with Soda Pop,

So where do you think

he falls in all this?

Anyone got an id... Casper?

Can I go to the

bathroom, please?

We're about five minutes away.

You can hold it.

You want to take your

boots off the table there?




Take your socks off, or

you're going to the office.

Take your socks off.

That's good.

That's great.

Now you can take your

feet off the desk.

Smart guy.

Now I got to put the socks

and shoes back on, man.

You could have just

said that there.

Well, I could have.

Would have been... jeez, your

room's a mess here, teach.

My room's a mess?


Well, I got to go to

the bathroom anyways.

Hey, you want detention?

Yeah, sure, teach,

give me detention.

Yeah, it's a big joke,

Everyone's aware you're

such a tough guy.

You want me to show you

f***in' tough guy, teach?

I'm not, because you're

starting to f***in'

piss me off right now.

All right.

Yeah, you

said that five f***in' words...

Yeah, f*** me.


OK, easy.

Hey, old Pony Boy.

Good people make bad choices.

It's f***in' easy.

I'm smarter than you.

So you and Casper

would move to Boston together?




But not...

So you've

been coming to this school

since you were six

years old, right?



And now you're 17.

That's 2/3 of your

life you spent here.

Guess I know you pretty well.

I... I know your family.

I know your circumstances.

And it really angers me that

you might throw it all away.

I would imagine that

you've got a plan.

You've got a plan

beyond high school.

Have you even thought

about which colleges

you might like to try?

You act like you

want to be punished.

You act like you want to

be thrown out of school.

You act like you

want to be a failure.

Here's what I want you to do.

And if you want to come back to

this school, please come back.

But apply yourself.

Follow the rules.

Work hard.


Or don't bother coming back.

You're done.

He's kind of a dick.

Well, f*** him.

F*** him.

Oh, he says you've got

a bright future, though.

He said I've got

a bright future?


He started jerking off,

just thinking about you.

It's the truth too.

Yeah, he does that.

Get off.

Badger's down at Tulsa.

Go there.

I said, Badger is down at Tulsa.

Go there.


Jesse, go there.

Jesse, get out of

my... get off my por...

close the f***ing door.

That's it.

It's in there.

What's wrong with Clayton?

What do you mean?

Wouldn't even open the door.

You don't know better than that?

He don't like doing

business at home.

Besides, he don't trust

no one but family.

Or f***in' second cousins.

Second cousins?


That's all family.

Everybody's a second

cousin to everybody.


You don't

trust no one but me, OK?


Look at me.

You don't trust no one but me.

Yeah, I don't trust

no one but you,

but... ahem... your

brother's a weird dude.

You're a f***in' weird dude.

Get the f*** out.

Get out.

Take your powdered donuts

and get the f*** out.

F*** you.

F*** me?

Well, f*** you, all right, Sal?


Sorry about that.

That guy was bad.

I don't like that guy.

That guy was a bad guy.

Hey, how'd it go?

Um, got a bottle of

big dogs there, yeah.

Big dogs?


That's a good score there.

And, uh, something that I

think are hydros, maybe.

Well yeah, I'll take a look.


Yes, sir.


That's real good.

I can do that whenever

you need, you know.


Book it.

Looks like a rock there.


And how is your, uh...

how's your c*nt mother?

She's always in a bad

mood, that one there, yeah.

I know.


Has she sh*t out any

more kids since I've last

seen her dumb ass?

Um... I don't think so, no.

Well, um, tell her f*** you

from your old man, will you?

Sure, yeah.

Yeah, well, I'll call you.

Or just come by anytime.


Yeah, sure.

All right.

I'll... I'll be by, or you
