- As you're

wrappin' up your weekend

we're certainly

hoping you got outside

and enjoyed the warm weather.

And there's plenty

more ahead apparently.

This year's farmer's almanac

is calling for mild fall

and winter season

across the northeast.

With temperatures above

normal so far the late fall

is just a bit.

And I know there are other

folks looking down the road

for a white Christmas.

Maybe not this time,

the almanac says.

- Take this, just set

it in the kitchen.

We gotta get all this

unloaded before dark.

- You should hold

it by the bottom.

These boxes have

seen better days.

Are you okay?

- Yeah.

I'm getting a migraine.

I think I should just

lie down for awhile.

- But I thought we

needed to finish this.

- We do.

I just need a little break.

We'll finish it later,

I promise, okay?

- Yeah, sure.

- Hi, I'm Tyler Evans.

I just moved here and need

to register for classes.

- Okay, Tyler, we

can take care of you.

Do you have your paperwork?

- The papers.

- Oh.

I'm sorry, I must have left

them back at the house.

- Are you serious?

- I'm so sorry.

Um, you know, I'm just

right down the road.

I'll just go get

'em, I'll go get 'em.

- In the meantime, I could

have somebody show you around.

- Yeah, perfect, see.

Okay, I'll be back

in a heartbeat, okay.


- Tyler?

- Yeah.

- I'm Paige, I'm supposed

to show you around.



Mr. Stevenson will see you now.

- Come on in.

- There you have it.

I hope it was informative.

- It was.

Thank you.

- I know what it's like

to be new and all alone.

If you have any questions

or if you need anything

just call me, okay?

- Okay, thank you.

- Bye.

- Everything taken care of?

- Yes, your mother brought back

all the appropriate paperwork.

You're all squared away.

She's looking for you outside.

- Thank you.

I'm sorry about that again.

- No worries, we got

it all sorted out.

Here's your schedule.

- Could you also tell

me where I get the bus?

- We don't bus students

that live less than

a mile from school.

- Okay, thank you anyway.

- You're welcome,

have a great day.

- Whoa, easy there, champ.

- I'm sorry.

Mr. Stevenson, right?

- Yeah, have we met?

- I'm...

- oh, sorry about that.

- I'm Tyler.

I just moved here.

And this girl, Paige,

just showed me around.

She mentioned who you were.

- Yeah, I know Paige.

She's one of our best students.

Keep her close.

She's a great person to know.

Well look, I hope

you like it here.

- Well, we'll see.

I mean, thanks, I do, too.

- Well, it was nice meetin' ya.

- It's nice meeting you.

I'll see ya.

- All right.

- All the time I have

to have all this stress.

- Excuse me, what's going on?

- Sorry, I'm Tyler Evans,

I just transferred.

Today's my first day.

- There are paper

towels by the sink.

Clean yourself up and

take a seat, please.

Before we get started,

I'm sure you've all heard,

the devastating

news about Derek.

He passed away this

morning at the hospital.

He was a fun-loving

and caring young man

with a lot of heart.

And his death is a tragic

loss for all of us.

Let's take a moment

of silence, please.

- So, guess what?

- You got it, didn't you?

- Hell yeah I did.

- Thanks, mom.

- Shut up.

It was a birthday present.

- Hey, I'll be lucky if I get

a birthday card this year.

- How fast does it go?

- I haven't really had the

chance to test her out yet.

Gonna head out tonight.

See if anyone's up

to takin' me on.

- Speed kills, dude.

- Livin' on the edge.

It's the only way to do it.

- Yep, right until you fall off.

- Hi
