Let's get a picture of this.

This is fun.

Oh, damn it.

We don't have any film.

Oh, God, the goddamn film, man.

All I said was that there's...

I heard what you said.

Jesus, you never let up, do you?

You always want to make

a big f***ing deal out of everything.

Maybe that's the only way

you'll ever pay attention.

- You want pictures?

- Yes, I want some pictures.

- You want to take some pictures?

- I'd like to take some pictures.

Here, take some pictures of this,

why don't you, huh?

Maybe that'll make you happy.


Okay, here we are

home furnishings...

linens, ladies' undergarments.

Watch your step there, Eunice.

That a girl.

How soon is all this

scaffolding mess coming down?

Oh, it won't be too long.

Any second now, hopefully.

Listen. Feel free

to look around there.

And if you need anything,

just give a holler.

Watch your step, though.

It's a big day, isn't it?

- What are you doing?

- Marching in the parade.

- Okay?

- Yes, sure.

- Name's Adie Nims.

- Yes, I know. I remember.

So, how are things going

over at the elementary school?

Why? Feeling guilty about not letting

me teach at the big kids' school?

No, I think I'm just curious

as to how things are going.


Well, just great.

You could come visit sometime.

Then you would know.

Yes, well, guess I could.


I told those guys to make

one nice, big pile over here...

so we could haul

all this stuff away.

This is what I get.

The school board wants

the rest of the construction tour...

and they would like

to check the cost report.

How the hell am I supposed to get

this goddamn gym built...

before Valentine's Day if I going to

parade those old farts around?

Well, it's their gym.

They're paying for it.

What do they think,

I can't do the job?

No, Wiley.

Yes, I still got it.

I'm going to miss

this old firetrap, you know.

Scored 33 points

against Manchester in here.

That was an all-girl team.

Yes, but they were tall.

Yes, I'm going to miss it too.

I think Kyle was conceived

right up there.

Yes, Sandy and I couldn't keep

our hands off each other back then.

Wasn't your hands

that were the problem.

Who is this?

Oh, that's the high school

principal in training.

- No.

- It is.

Where am I supposed

to put the urinals?

- Same shirt, I think.

- I can't believe this is you.

Your ears are so big.

Oh, my God.

It's the haircut. Everybody's ears

were big in those pictures.

- No, it's not the hair.

- It's not true, Sam.

Sam, see, look at this.

You're crazy, man.

The girls' locker room is right there.

If we put the boys' room right there...

I loved this dress.

My mom made this prom dress.

Took her a month.

She did it all by hand.
