Ready for your speech, Ms. Ryan?

Are you sure you're prepared this time?

Are you sure you're not

forgetting anything, Jane?

Sure you're not

forgetting anything, Jane?

Please welcome Jane Ryan.


Just a dream.

Morning, Mom. Miss you.

- Morning.

- Morning, Dad.

I'm up.

I'm up.

Ladies and gentlemen,

my name is Jane Ryan.

My name is Jane Ryan.

My name is Jane Ryan.

Good morning, Justin.

"Simple Plan shoot...

...59th and Ninth, New York City."

- Making sure you're up.

- Yeah, just finishing an essay.

Three weeks into school,

and you haven't cut once. I like it.

Maybe I won't have to send you

to Sister Mary Margaret's after all.


...or Simple Plan video shoot?

I'm here today as a finalist

for the McGill Fellowship.

What excuses shall we

use this time, Ringo?

Ringo? Ringo, where are you?

"Death of a pet, religious holiday...

...female problems." Last week.

"Lllnesses. Chickenpox." Print.

- Perfect.

- Perfect.

Thank you, New York City!

Ringo, there you are.

Did the little mean lady scare you?

Yes, I know she did.

Jane. Why do you insist on playing Mom?

Okay? Dad doesn't have time for breakfast.

Not listening.

- How's it going, guys?

- Hi.

- Your breakfast is on the table.

- Smells great.


- There you go.

- Thanks.

You're welcome.

Never, ever touch my day planner.

Okay, you need to chill on the nerd book,

okay? You have issues.

Okay, how frequent are the contractions?

Have them head down to the hospital.

I'll meet them there. Yeah.

- Jane...

- No, Dad, it's fine.

No, it's not fine.

I know this is your big day.

I will do everything I can to get

to Columbia to see your speech.

- I know you will.

- Okay, excuse me.

Jane, sorry, I know this is the biggest day

of your academic career...

...but Dad, will you sign my field-trip

permission form, please?

Shakespeare in the Park?

Great! Which play?

You know, the one with

the girl and the guy..., the tights, hair.

- Romeo and Juliet?

- Yeah! Thank you. I totally blanked.

- I love that play.

- I know. Me too.

- Your mom would have been so proud.

Would you mind giving your sister a lift?

- Not at all.

- It wouldn't kill you to spend time together.

Breakfast was great, but I got to go.

Okay. Well, then, take this, okay?

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

- Love you.

- Love you too. Good luck.

- I hope you don't get caught.

- I won't.

- Let's get the show on the road.

- Think about a car wash.

You might wanna think

about buying a car.

- I'm saving up for college.

- That makes one of us.

Mind putting on the radio?

- Not at all.

- What is this?

Too cool for school.


Where are we going? We have

...and I can't be late.

We just have to make a pit stop

at my manager's.

Wait, you have a manager?

- Howdy, Rox.

- Hello.

- Come on in.

- Thanks.


- So how's the party?

- It's going great.

We're on a marathon mission.

So I burned you 30. Check it out.


- Why am I on the cover?

- Marketing, baby.

- You're the hottest one in the band.

- Hey, Roxy.

- That's not saying much.

- Here's your all-access pass.

That will get you into the shoot.

Now, remember...

...we've got to hit up the A-and-R guys.

- We gotta get this contract.

- How will I know it's them?

Middle-aged guys, fancy suits...

...bad, old-fashioned dancing.

- Right.

- Got it? All right.

- Yes. Bye.

- Good luck.

- Okay. Thank you.

Yeah, 79!

Who's there?

- Pool guy.

- Pool guy?

You're not the pool guy.

You get to go right to the head

of the class.
