MIDDLEBURG IS A:

MIDDLE-SIZE TOWN IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY.

BUT SOMETIMES, IN MY DREAMS,

IT FELT LIKE SOMEPLACE ELSE.

SOMEHOW FAMILIAR,

BUT ALSO VERY STRANGE.

MIDDLEBURG IS WHERE I LIVE,

AND SO DOES SOMETHING...ELSE.

SOME PEOPLE THOUGH MIDDLEBURG WAS DULL,

THAT NOTHING EVER

HAPPENED HERE.

WELL, THEY WERE VERY WRONG.

[ Alarm Beeps ]

FRANCIS?

FRANCIS, TIME TO

GET UP, HONEY.

FRANNY?

MY NAME IS FRANCIS

BACON McCAUSLAND.

I'M FOURTEEN YEARS OLD.

THAT MORNING I WAS

EXTREMELY TIRED.

IT'S SO DARK.

MUST BE A STORM FRONT MOVING IN.

NOT ACCORDING TO THE BAROMETER.

MAYBE IT'S THE

END OF THE WORLD.

IT SURE FEELS LIKE IT.

HOW WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT THE

END OF THE WORLD FELT LIKE?

YOU'VE NEVER FELT I BEFORE, HAVE YOU?

MAYBE THE CLOCKS

ARE WRONG.

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL.

I ALWAYS SET OUR CLOCKS

BY THE NAVAL:

OBSERVATORY WEB SITE.

I'LL CHECK IT OUT.

BERT, TRASH, AND DON' FORGET THE PAPER.

WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO

TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE?

BECAUSE WITH AGE COMES

RESPONSIBILITY, BERT.

WHEN YOU GO TO COLLEGE,

YOUR SISTER, FRANCIS,

WILL TAKE THE TRASH OUT.

I WANNA GET A DOG, SO HE

COULD EAT THE GARBAGE,

AND HE COULD FETCH

THE NEWSPAPER.

DOGS HAVE GERMS.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH I WHEN YOU WENT TO COLLEGE?

THEY DON'T ALLOW DOGS

IN THE DORM ROOM.

MAYBE YOU COULD PU IT ON THE ROOF.

GET REAL, FRANCIS.

GROW UP, BERT.

GET A REAL GROWN-UP.

AW, JEEZ, WHA HAPPENED TO THE EGGS?

THERE WERE TWO DOZEN EGGS

IN THE FRIDGE LAST NIGHT.

NOW THERE AREN'T ANY.

COLD CEREAL AGAIN.

I DIDN'T DO

ANYTHING WITH 'EM.

NO ONE'S BLAMING

YOU, FRANCIS.

I'M THE ONE THEY

ALWAYS BLAME FOR

EVERYTHING.

THAT'S BECAUSE YOU

HAVE SO MUCH PENT UP

AGGRESSION.

I DO NOT!

ALL RIGHT, YOU TWO!

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOU AGGRESSION RIGHT NOW.

THAT'S WHAT FAMILY

TIME IS FOR.

NOW WE ARE SIMPLY

TRYING TO DETERMINE

WHAT HAS HAPPENED

TO THE EGGS.

IT'S 4:
23 AM.

THE CLOCKS SAY 7:23.

THE CLOCKS ARE WRONG.

I TOLD YOU IT WAS THE

END OF THE WORLD.

IT WAS HARD TO GE BACK TO SLEEP.

I KEPT WONDERING WHY ALL THE

CLOCKS HAD BEEN SPED UP.

BUT I KNEW THERE HAD TO

BE A LOGICAL EXPLANATION.

HEE HEE HEE.

THAT'S IT. COME HERE.

COME HERE. HA HA HA.

MOST KIDS MY AGE GO

TO MIDDLE SCHOOL,

BUT I SKIPPED A GRADE.

HI, BERT.

HEY.

YOU SHOULDN'T WASTE A

LOT OF TIME GROWING UP.

JO?

OH! HI.

HI.

SO, UM, WHY DON'T YOU WAN TO TAKE THE BUS TO SCHOOL?

JOANNE, NOBODY RIDES

THE BUS TO HIGH SCHOOL.

IT'S JUST FOR CHILDREN.

I WISH I COULD SKIP

A GRADE SO I COULD

GO TO HIGH SCHOOL.

BERT DOES HAVE ANOTHER YEAR

AFTER THIS, DOESN'T HE?

IF HE'S LUCKY.

WELL, WHY DO YOU CARE

WHEN BERT GRADUATES?

AHH...DID I TELL YOU

OUR ALARM CLOCKS

WENT OFF THREE HOURS

EARLY THIS MORNING?

REALLY?

YEP. AND MOM SAYS THE

NEIGHBOR'S CLOCKS WERE

WRONG TOO.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

WELL, YEAH. OUR CLOCKS

DID THE EXACT SAME THING.

THEY WERE ALL:

THREE HOURS EARLY.

IT'S SO WEIRD.

WELL, IT'S ONLY WEIRD

BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE

A LOGICAL:

EXPLANATION FOR IT.

UH, WHY IS THA DOG ON THE ROOF?

[ Barking ]

NOW THAT'S WEIRD.

MAYBE IT WAS SOME KIND OF

MAGNETIC...YOU KNOW...LIKE...

LIKE A POWER SURGE.

WHY WOULD THAT MAKE

DOGS GET ON THE ROOF?

I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE

CLOCKS BEING WRONG.

GOOD MORNING, FRANCIS.

GOOD MORNING,

MR. KEPLER.

HE'S MY

BIOLOGY TEACHER.

HE REALLY LIKES ME.

DOES HE MAKE YOU CU UP FROGS AND STUFF?

THAT IS SO GROSS.

I LOVE BIOLOGY.

SEE, YESTERDAY WE

GOT TAKE THIS:

CHICKEN EMBRYO--

WHY IS THAT GUY:

STARING AT US?

WHAT...GUY?

[ School Bell Rings ]

WELL, WE WAS

JUST RIGHT THERE.
