Come on!

It's really coming on

Yeah you're swimming down

Let's do it!

'Cause she's awake

That's me, and this is

the only decent part of my day.

After this my life

only looks good on paper.

Jump off

Let it go

Come on let's start again

You've got it now

You know you

Is besides

She's a tidal wave

Taking you out

She's a hurricane

Oh oh oh oh oh

It's in the air

Oh let it go

Get what you feel

All things you know

She's a tidal wave

Taking you out

She's a hurricane

Oh oh oh oh oh


- First time I killed one..

- Yeah.

So special.

All that blood was magnificent.

I watched it.

It wasn't that special.

And these are my friends.

They're a little weird.

Isn't that right, Sean?

'Look, we're just trying

to help you with your mom.'

Wait, so you want me

to slit her throat?

The Val Moreth

is your mom, Sean.

She's the most dangerous crafty

creature in all of Allenton.

She's ethereal.

'She's beautiful.'

'The kind of woman

knights would fight to save.'

But it's all a clever ruse

just to lure you in.

Can't go to her unprepared.


Too many good plans have been

sacrificed and slaughtered

at her perfectly manicured feet.

Hey, don't talk

about my mom's feet.

- That's weird.

- 'Focus, man.'

We're helping you here. It's not

like you're related so...

Alright. That's it. I'm out.

I don't need to hear that.


So, are you coming this weekend?

I'll be there.

Thank you, baby Jesus.

Oh, for the record, I beat the

Val Moreth in under two hours.

- F***!

- Ouch.

Easy goes..

Two hours, dude?

- That's..

- You cheater.

'Your mom's a cheater,

and that's why you're alive.'

She can take me out

Alright, just look at page 92.

I have two women in my life.

One I wanna get away from,

and one I wish I could see.

The first is my mom.

She sends me a checklist

I have to complete

by the end of the day,

every day.

The second woman is Chloe.

She texts me all day

asking to hang out.

Even though she lives

on the other side of the state.


Um, I don't know.

I didn't ask you a question.


Oh, um..

My bad.

Anything you wanna talk about?

Uh, no.

Just spaced out a bit.

For the whole class?

Part of it.

I caught.. Yeah, I was spaced

out for most of it.


Well, I'll make you a deal.

You show up on Monday,

alert and engaged

and I'll pretend you weren't

lookin' at your phone.

What if I wasn't

lookin' at my phone?

Well, then we have

to call your folks in

for a little chat.

So, Monday,

alert, engaged, and ready.

- Mm.

- Thank you, Mrs. Lucas.

Have a wonderful weekend.


But I'm not going anywhere.

I'm my mom's favorite

science experiment.

She used to measure

the pH level of my pee.

Yeah, like a psycho.

Hi, mom.

'Lots of skateboard

traffic today?'

It's like a minute past 3:30.

Or was it that

the wave traffic was good?

Yeah, well, all we have

is a quiz review today.

So, I knew I aced that.

Oh. Did you now?

Read it and weep.

Well done.

Don't let that face fool you.

She's trying

to find a reason for me

not to go surf camping

this weekend.

She's great at saying one thing

when she means another.

Luckily, I know how

Be careful. It's hot.

Don't forget that

there's gluten in soy sauce.

You really wanna go?

I will text you.

I will call you.

I will email you

if there's 4G. Okay?

Go, seriously.

Have fun this weekend.

You and dad, 20 years together.

- It's awesome.

- Okay, little fish.

Well, listen, I'm gonna go

and pick up dad from work.

And I can give you a ride

to piano if you like.

Don't worry about me. Just go.

Always better to be early.
