Coup d'tat, coup d'tat

Coup d'tat

Coup d'tat

Coup d'tat

The government

Gets overthrown

A sudden force, a major stroke

Over out

New comes in

Coup d'tat

Give me a bomb

Generalissimo sets up shop

Step out of line,

your neck's on a block

Armies marching

through the streets

Dressed real sharp,

dressed real neat


Coup d'tat

Tatiana, hustle your ass down here!

Tatiana, now!

Hey, sexpot.

I just wanted to say

I had a really nice time last night.

And, um...

I'm sorry about what I said in the car.

I know how mad it makes you,

and I promise I won't say it again.

It's just... it's true,

I couldn't help myself. I...

I think I am in love with you.

I thought I threw

those boots in the trash.

You did.

If you keep fishing them out,

you're gonna break your neck.

I got better things to do

than push you around in a wheelchair

the rest of my life.


You should've seen the way

he was looking at me last night.

I mean, it's real. And he's so smart.

I shouldn't have said it.

I shouldn't have said it.

You never tell 'em you love 'em.

Everybody knows. It's textbook.

- Everyone except you, apparently.

- I deserve a little respect.

No, you're right on track,

sleeping with a married man.

- A soon-to-be divorced married man.

- OK, sure.

Could you at least try to fix your hair?

I am fixing it.

I'm fixing it to cover my face.

Not that you give a shit,

but you look pretty cute

when people can actually see your face.

Ditching that thing

in your nose wouldn't hurt either.

- You're the one who took me to get it.

- What can I say? I'm an idiot.

No comment.

Walk much?

I think I might yark.

1975 Mustang Stocker,

blue and red tampo.

Original package. Never played with.


That is so... neat.

I always said when I was a dentist,

I'd have the coolest waiting room.

Well, you succeeded.

Hey, so, um... Did you get my message?

I had a really good time last night.

Not here, Darlene.

There's a cleaning in Exam 4.

Hey, Tats.

- What's up?

- Hey.

So, did you read it?

Yeah, I have to be honest.

I'm not sure those books are religious.

I get them from my church.

It's basically torture porn.

That chapter on the left leg of hell,

with the demon making

that other guy drink molten lead.

- That was disgusting.

- Right.

Who knew that hell

was divided into parts of the body?

You haven't even gotten to

the best chapter yet.

- The bowels.

- Mm.

When people are in there,

it's like they're swimming in acid.

Their skin burns off. It's awesome.

Yeah, I'll take your word for it.

It's just not that fun

to read about the place

where my skanky mom's

probably going to end up.

Happens to everyone

who commits sins of the flesh.

That's her. Biggest slut in the game.

It's true.

Here. This one's even sicker.

It's the next one in the series.

The Devil's a parasite

that eats a person from the inside out.

Put Post-It notes on all the good parts.

- Catch you later.

- Thank you.


Sophomores, you have proven

that teenagers can in fact survive

the ancient art of letter writing.

You have personally corresponded

with luminaries who have inspired you.

Does anyone care to share whom,

not "who", "whom", you selected?

I wrote to Mark Zuckerberg,

'cause he's so rich.

Inspiring choice. Anyone else?

Miss Miles,

care to tell us who you wrote to?

- Anton Vincent.

- The dictator?

Miss Miles, the assignment

was to write to a role model.

- Someone you admire.

- I admire his style.

You shouldn't admire anything about him.

He's evil.

OK, well, so were the Khmer Rouge,

and they had good style.
