All right, let's go, people!

One minute before tardy lockdown!

Let's go! Everybody move inside!

Good morning.

Let's go! Let her go!

No smoking! I don't smoke,

you don't smoke!

Let's go, people!

Today's a good day to learn.

Watch yourselves!

No riding bikes in the hallways, stupid!

Coming through!

You late, Garfield. You late!

Au contraire, my homeboy.

The bell hasn't rung yet.

- You is a crazy nigga, G.

- Very true, man.

Thank you very much for sharing that.

Let's go.

You two, please. This is not

the Playboy Channel.

Good morning, one and all.

Let's get started, please.

August, Tywan, would you

pass out the book?

What up with your car?

Your Pinto with the 8-track blew up?

Attention, please!

I'm sure some of you are wondering

why I brought this bicycle to class.

Excuse me. Grasshopper?

Thank you.

The purpose of the bike... to demonstrate

centripetal force...

...the opposite of the force

we studied yesterday...

...which was...?

Centrifugal force.

I thought I'd demonstrate.


Would you come up here

and help me, please?

Yo, what up?

Go see what your daddy want.

Here you go.

Brace these handlebars

behind your knees.


Crank the pedals.

Get that wheel going...

...about 180 rpm.

- What's up with this?

- Come on!

Put some muscle into it. Come on!

It's crazy, man. Got a n*gger

riding a bike going nowhere.

Bear with me. You'll see.



Come on, T, get playing!

Tilt the wheel to your right.


Augie, check me out!

Know what I'm saying?

Tywan! Tywan!

Spinning like a motherf***er!

You know what I mean?

Spin like a nut!

What's my name?

Walter, I need to talk.

I'm pretty busy now. What is it?

Open it.

I don't suppose this kid

cares about our budget crisis.

Have the textbook room

charge him for it.

That says 187.

That's the police code for homicide.

I know what it stands for.

The kid probably heard it in a rap song.

Means nothing.

The book belongs to Dennis Broadway.

He's a known gangster.

Garfield, if I had a dollar for every

time a student threatened faculty...

Did you tell Dennis he was

getting a fail from me?

I have legal access to those files.

He's a transfer from Nixon, isn't he?

If he gets through this semester,

he gets to go back to Nixon.

He blew his opportunity. Now

he has to live with the consequences.

I don't think he wants to live with

the consequences. He wants me dead.

Relax. This has nothing to do with you.

I should've been told, Walter.

You know what your problem is?

On the one hand, you think

someone's trying to kill you.

On the other hand, you believe kids

are paying attention in your classes.

Call 911!


Mr. Garfield, this is the Sub Unit.

Are you available for work?


There's a science class

at John Quincy Adams.

It's a four-day assignment.

The teacher's name is Eskander.

All right. Thank you.

If youre listening, God...

... please help me today.

Please give me a chance

to do my job...

... which you put me here

to do in the first place.

God, grant me the serenity to accept

the things I cannot change...

... the courage to change

the things I can...

... and the wisdom

to know the difference.

It's me, Trevor, God.


Baseball cap, give it up.

Hold, please.

- I'm a substitute.

- Card?

You want the main office down the hall.

Check in with Mrs. Ford.

Excuse me?

Could you tell me where Bungalow 86 is?

Next to the parking lot.

Last bungalow on the left.

Good luck.

I can't even read that sh*t!

Look at that!


Before I take the roll,

I'd like to make a point.
