Sorry for party rockin'


Go after him.

And models in the VIP...

There he is! There he is!

Out for the whole damn club to see

Sorry for party rockin'

When they talk sh*t,

we just be like

Sorry for party rockin'

People always say

that my music's loud

Sorry for party rockin'

Neighbors complain,

saying "Turn it down"

Sorry for party...

- Morris.

- Len.

There was a disturbance call.

- House party.

- Hmm.

The ringleader here

gave us some flak.

A couple of the kids say that

the booze came from him.

I don't know what to say.

He's just lucky he didn't get picked

up by one of the other patrols.

Morris, I'm doing all I can here.

I know it hasn't been easy for him,

but I can't keep getting

him off the hook.

He gets picked up again,

he's gonna have to go

through the system.

You've done more than enough, Len,

and I appreciate it.

You have yourself a good night.

Can't you see my

heart is breaking...

I don't even know why I

show up to school, man.

- It's a waste of my time.

- Guess who got some after the party.

Dude, jerking off a cop to let

you go doesn't count, man.

Yeah yeah.

Remember that chick?

- No way.

- Way, dude.

She got separated from her friends

- and she needed a ride home.

- You don't even have a car.

I know. We wandered around

forever trying to find it.

- Dude, smell my fingers.

- Aw, you're sick, man.

Dude, a brother's gotta eat, right?

Michael Shaw, please

come to the office.

- Oh.

- Sh*t.


Man, I'm sorry. Yeah, I gotta go.

Let's go, guys.

Whoo, oh, that's nice.
