Honey, wake up.

- No.

- Anna.

Greet the day.

Honey, you gotta wake up.


That's it!


I have had it!

- Aah!

Anna, hurry up!


I'm ready.

Would you settle on a station?


I'm going to get

a little stud here, okay?

I don't want my maid of honor

looking like a harlot.

Come on, Mom.

Everyone's got one.


Harry, everyone has one.

I can't believe you!

You're ruining my life.

You know what?

End of discussion. Feet down.


If I can drive.

- Did you bring your permit?

- No. I can't find it.

- You can't find it?

- Ha ha!

What did you do with it, troll?

Why do you always have

to blame him?

You couldn't find

anything in your room.

Why do you always take his side?

Oh, look, Anna,

let's not do this now, please.

And fix your shirt.

- Look, there's Stacey Hinkhouse.

- Joy.

Hi, Stacey.

Hi, Mrs. Coleman.

Congratulations on your big day.

Thanks a lot.

Say hi to your mom.

- Okay, bye.

- Okay, bye. Hi, girls.

You never see Stacey anymore.

- How is she?

- Evil. She hates me now.


Would you leave

your brother alone?


She always starts it.

Bye, honey.

Make good choices.

She had the same shirt?

Yeah, but this

looks okay, right?

- Sure.

- Yeah.

So it's cool?

- No.

- Oh, definitely not.

- Oh, kill me.

- Anna, what?

I can't believe it.

It's Jake.

He's gonna think I'm so stupid,

I can't even put on a shirt.

You've never even met the guy.

Guess what? He doesn't care.

He's not even looking.

He's totally looking.

- I think he's gonna talk to you.

- Shut up.

Oh! Thanks.


Why would I want

a leprechaun ice sculpture?

I'm not even Irish.

[Cellphone rings]

Could you hold on?


Señora, Señora!



I am so sorry.

I'm so sorry, sir.

Mr. Bates, I don't

understand this "F".

You missed

the point of the book.

It's " ."

How could anyone miss it?

It's a blatant attack

on totalitarianism.

About a rigid society,

dominated by one all-powerful,

ego-tripping dictator.

My grade is final.

Except he had hair.


Hello, Anna.

What do you have today?

Meat loaf.



Evan, I'm so sorry.

I had some car trouble.


I thought you forgot about me.

I could never forget about you.

I see you every day.

What about tomorrow?

Is this new?

Am I gonna see you tomorrow?

You're gonna see me tomorrow,

but not next week,

because I'm going

on my honeymoon.

Oh, my God!

You're not coming back.

- All my therapists quit on me.

- I'm not gonna quit on you.

I'm gonna be available

on my cellphone.

I checked. There's no service

on the north side of the island.

It will be fine.


I've had a better week.

You're counting the minutes,

aren't you?


How many minutes are left?


All right,

this morning was good.

But then I got up.
