- Oh, he is so cute.

- So cute.

Make my dreams come true

Take me away


'Cause falling in love

ain't very far

If marshmallows were a boy,

they'd so be Ritchie.

Oh, gosh!

Less lusting, more chugging.

You two are so beyond lame.

Hi, sis. Get out.

Oh, look! You're having

a date with your TV.

And piles of trash.

This isn't trash!

This is a highly organized system

of bottles and labels.

See, we're doing

this 5 Leo Rise shift label drive,

and the school

that collects the most labels

gets to have the band

come to the school!

And the kids that collected

the most labels get to meet the band,

talk to the band,

look at the band...

Shut up!

You know, after spending

a semester in Italy,

American boys

just don't do it for me anymore.

Excuse me, girl gone wild,

why don't you take

your sexploits and go?

We're busy.

Gladly, loser.

Hey, Devon.

- Is that my T-shirt?

- No.

Yeah, it is!

I want it off and in my room

in five minutes, or you're so dead.

I can't believe my parents are leaving

me alone with her for the weekend!

Well, she doesn't have

to take it out on Mason!

Love at first sight

So, what are you going to say

to Mason when you meet him?

Oh, don't jinx it!

- We're so gonna lose. I know it!

- Are you kidding?

You've been snipping labels

morning, noon, and night,


at the recycling center...

Not just for the labels.

Recycling is important

for the future of our planet.

Gabs, relax.

We got this concert in the bag.

What the hell are you doing

in my locker?

Nothing. "Ritchie loves

hanging out with his friends,

grabbing a bite to eat

after every show. "

Give it!

That's some fascinating stuff

you're reading there.

Tell me, Lincoln, when does

the breaking-and-entering phase

of your obnoxious little life end?

Right after you get over

these lip-synching wussies.

- I mean, look.

- They don't lip-synch!

That's just weird.

What's on the schedule

for today, Pete?

I'm downloading the latest

masterpiece onto the Internet.

The Hesterson High

goat kidnapping.

You heard about that, right?

We snatched their mascot

in, like, three minutes flat,

and we got it all on tape.

Check it out.

This is Pete, and this is

the Hesterson goat kidnapping.

- I got him!

- Go! Go! Go! Go!

That's awesome.

That's enough.

I'm telling you, when that baby

goes up on my website,

I'm going to get, like,

50,000 profile views.

The chicks are going to be on me.

- Pranks are lame.

- Baby girl, don't be jealous.

Look, me and you, we'll always

have our thing, you know?

I mean, our chemistry's like this.

Especially after we had

our first little bath together.

I was two years old, you freak.

I know, but you kept grabbing

for my rubber ducky and stuff...

Mention it again and you're dead.

Whoa, you got to be

a little bit more gentle with me.

I'm fragile, all right?

- You getting this on tape?

- Got it.

So, look, we still on

for homecoming or what?

We'll talk about it later.

It's cool.

She's just holding out

for the limo.


Two more times.

Lincoln is so my nemesis.

Still, he did ask you

to homecoming.

I'm just saying,

I wish I had a nemesis to ask me.

Excuse you.

Oh, hi, Kira. Nice shoes.

Did I tell you to stop running?

Not you, Gabs.

Kira, what do you want?

As president

of the student council,

I'm heading up

the 5 Leo Rise label drive

this afternoon,

and since you two don't have

anything better to do with...

your pathetic little lives...

- You guys are lame.

- I know.

I'm expecting

a lot of labels from you two.


I cannot wait to meet
