- You know, I gotta

tell you, it's about

the fastest deal I've

ever done in my life.

You know, with a

house, most people

want to look every which way

up and down, round and round.

Not you guys, huh?

You come you look, you

like it you take it.

Super fast, huh?

- How long you been up?

- Awhile.

Yeah Paul dropped off

the box of clothes

from the lost and found, I guess

just until we can get

you some new ones.

- Do I wear a uniform?

- It's a fancy place.

me this is all boys.

- Okay Wes,

schedule check,

unacceptable shoes check.

- We'll go shopping

right after school.

- Great.

So, you pick a sport yet?

- Yeah, I'm not really

a big sports guy.

- Well, I'm afraid

it's mandatory.

This time of year

your choices are

football, fencing

and cross country.

- Okay, thanks,

Mr. Abernac.

- Good luck, soldier.

- I don't know how to

thank you for this, Paul.

- No need.

How you holding up?

- Fine.

- Well hopefully a fresh start

will do you both some good.

- I'm sure it will.

- Yes, yes, the first

day hork, gotta love it.

- Alright, alright I'm seeing.

I'm seeing some taquitos,

some zucchini...

You really like

zucchini, huh, new kid?

- I see some jello there.

- That's enough forensic

analysis, gentleman.

- Gotta respect the first

day hork.

- Welcome to cross country.

- How was cross country?

- Oh it was, whatever.

Won't this kind of

remind you of mom?

- It's not that I don't

want to be reminded.

I just want to have

some control over it.

I want you to have the car.

- What do you mean?

- Kid your age aught to

have your own set of wheels.

- How are you gonna get around?

- Previous tenant just

left it behind I guess.

- You know Dad,

I've never seen you

ride a bike in my entire life.

- Well I assure I am

perfectly capable of it.

- See you there.

- Ass hat!

- Sorry.

- God.

- Aw man, you got

Aminheimer for trig?

Better get some nose plugs, guy

smells like a dying warthog.

- Hey Mason, here

comes the circus.

- You know I always expect like

12 midgets to get

out of that thing.

- There's one.

- Hey Goober, when do

the elephants get here?

- Aw man, my

favorite time of day.

Behold the muff truck.

- How come we don't get to

take classes at their school?

- Because we'd never come back.

Good morning. ladies.

- Hey Mason.

- Hey Kim.

- Hey yourself.

- What's up Missy?

- Hey Tommy.

- Hey Lacey.

Shut up.

- And the area of this circle

of course is Pi R squared.

And then multiply by

the height to give us

the volume of the

cylinder right?

Any questions? Yes?

- What's with the belt?

- That's just something I do.

- Freak.

- And it looks like

we're out of time.

You have the

homework and it's on

the website if

you need to check.

- So how goes it so far?

- Great, seem like nice boys.

- They're not.

They're spoiled little snots

who won't have to work

a day in their lives

unless daddy runs off

with the secretary and takes

all the money with him.

Just kidding, of course.

Bill, I don't want to

overstep my bounds but
