Well, fellas, you're late...

And, Maya, I'm here...

The boys in the band...

decide to appear...

We walk through the door...

Savor the air...

The girls on the floor...

have come here to stare...

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

We've come here to stare...

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

Yeah...

Don't touch the girls...

Don't kiss the girls...

I have the right

to pull the girls...

Get in a fight

on every night...

The scratches,

the bruises, and the bites...

But I want to touch,

and I want to kiss...

And if you say no,

then I will persist...

With you tonight,

you'll make it right...

You know that you're

whetting my appetite...

You can call me X,

you can call me Y...

You can call me Z,

you can come and try...

Come and try...

Na-na, na-na, na-na,

na na na...

Na-na, na-na, na-na,

na na na...

Na-na, na-na, na-na,

na na na...

Na-na, na-na, na-na,

na na na...

Na-na, na-na, na-na,

na na na...

Na-na, na-na, na-na,

na na na...

Almost finished.

Okay.

You can sit up.

Everything

is perfectly fine.

Are you sure?

An irregular cycle is

very common with girls your age.

There are a lot

of contributing factors.

Stress is a big one.

Your mom tells me

you're quite the student.

Have you been

under more stress than usual?

I don't think so.

Are you sure there's nothing

wrong or abnormal or anything?

Well, I would like to start

you on a birth control regimen.

The hormones in it will help you

regulate your period.

The pill?

Mm-hmm.

We'll just see how you do on it.

You're not sexually active,

are you?

I'm sorry, but why did you

just assume that I wasn't...

sexually active?

Well, I did just perform

a pelvic examination.

So physically,

you still have some remainder...

of the protective tissue.

Oh.

Ah, yeah.

Yeah, sorry.

Hey, hold on.

Let me finish this page.

Yeah, you do realize

that it's not cool...

to be excited about reading

before school starts.

Really?

Is that the case?

- Yeah.

- Such a morale booster.

- Little booster.

- A booster.

When did you become an expert

on what's cool?

Oh, from the womb.

I did try and call Johnny

several times over the weekend...

to schedule a rehearsal,

but he doesn't call me back,

so there's no way that I can be

ready to present today.

Alexa,

if you can't organize yourself...

I am organized.

It's just that he...

Excuse me, Miss Davis?

I talked to my mom,

and she said to tell you...

I'm really not comfortable

playing Donna's girlfriend...

in some lesbian play.

Please tell your mother...

that The Children's Hour

is a famous piece of literature,

not some lesbian play.

Alexa, you will present today.

Sorry, I had detention.

Johnny, Grant Matson

will be here in two days.

Do you understand?

You will not embarrass me

or this school...

in front of my only student

that ever made it.

Yeah, okay.

Okay, good.

Now get up there.

We're starting

with you and Alexa.

Oh.

Oh, Miss Davis,

is it okay if I tape record

the rehearsal today...

just so I can practice the lines

in the right rhythm at home?

Absolutely, Alexa.

Listen up, people.

Grant Matson is doing eight

shows a week on this tour...

and still made time

to come to our class.

What the fuck

are you looking at?

Nothing.

Hey, Donna,

forgot your script.

Nice milk.

Moo.

Don't worry about it.

Thanks, Alexa.

Ben.

You didn't suck in rehearsal.

Thanks.

Well,

what do you want me to say?

I want you to say

that I really have it in me...

to be so brilliant

that people are just gonna be...

emotionally devastated

by my performance.

You really do have it in you

to emotionally devastate people.
