Hi. Can I Have

A Notebook, Pen, Ruler,

And Peanut Butter Cups?

Here You Go.

Thank You.

You're Welcome.

Is This Part

Of Your Diet?

Hey, Beat It.

She's Not Bothering You.

Ooh, She's Scared.

Let's Go.

Hey, You.

What's Up, Chica?

Nada. Just Kickin' It.

You Know,

First-Day-Back Blues.



Oh, I Am So Sorry.

Are You Ok?

It's Fine.

It's My Fault.

I Just Got

So Involved

In The Book,

I Forgot To Watch

Where I'm Going.


Could You Be So Kind

As To Point Me Towards

The Administration Building?

Sure. Um, Yeah,

You Follow Along

These Buildings Here,

Past The Jock Trophies,

Up The Stairs.

If You Pass

The Faculty Room,

You Went Too Far.

Thank You. Thanks.

I'm Sorry.


[Hip-Hop Music Playing]

Ooh, Yeah, Girl,

You're Dustin' Me!

All Right, Who's Got

The Next Cut?

Um, I Got It.


Where Are You Going

With That Dumb,

Girly Music, Esmeralda?

Who Named You

The Queen Of Music?

As Long As I Got The Moves,

I'll Be The One Pickin'

The Tunes.

Are We On The Same Page?

And, Segura, Please Come

To School With Your

Pants Pulled Up.

Nobody Cares What Color

Your Underwear Is.

Go To Class.


Gomez, Gomez,

Gomez, Gomez.

If You Put

As Much Energy

Into Your Schoolwork

As You Do

Into Goofing Off,

You Will Be

On The Honor Roll,

My Friend.

Yes, Sir.

Direct Me To The Front,

Colonel Zavala.

I Will Sacrifice Myself

For The Good

Of The School.





I Take It Principal Zavala

Had A Previous Life

In The Military.

Don't Think The Kids

Will Ever Let Him

Forget It For A Minute.

Good Morning,

Ms. Bartlett.

I'm Delighted To See

You Actually

Showed Up.

You Had Doubts?

Well, You Wouldn't Be

My First New Recruit

To Go Awol.

These Kids Can Be

Pretty Intimidating.

After Watching

A Dot-Com Company

Crash And Burn,

This Should Be Easy

In Comparison.

Don't Count On It.


For The Reassurance.

[Bell Rings]


Ms. Bartlett,

The First Day Is Usually

The Most Trying.

Good Luck.

[Kids Chattering Loudly]

So, Who's In Charge Here?

Who Knows?

Maybe No One.

Ha Ha!


Oh, Oh!

Yo, That's Tight.

Good Morning.

[Boy Wolf-Whistles]

My Name Is Ms. Bartlett,

I'm Your New Biology Teacher.


Nice Suit!


Good Luck!

Can Anybody Tell Me

What Biology Is?

A Royal Pain.

A Total Waste

Of Time?

[Kids Laugh]

Biology Is The Science

Of Living Organisms

And Vital Processes.

It's An Exploration Between

Plant And Animal Life,

The Laws And The Phenomena


Govern The...

Varied Species

On The Planet.

Am I Going Too Fast?

Do You Have

Any Questions?

Why Should We Care?

Yeah, And How Does It

Matter To Us

If Some Dumb Animal Goes

And Gets Itself Extinct?

We'd Be Better Off

Busting Some Beats.


Yeah, Bump It!

Oh, Oh!

Go, Daisy!

Come On, Daisy!

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!

Go, Daisy! Go, Daisy!

Go, Daisy!


Go, Daisy! Go, Daisy!

Go, Daisy!

Uh! Uh! Uh!

Go, Daisy! Go, Daisy...


[Kids Stop Yelling]

That's Automatic Detention

For 2 Weeks, Starting Today.

[Sighs] Gosh,

That's Wack, Colonel.

I'm Adding 2 More Weeks

For Insubordination,

Miss Salinas.

She Wasn't

The Only One
