I still don't see why we

just don't eat the Cheetos?

Because this is like an annual

thing that we do every week

once we get our

allowance. -But I'm hungry.

You ate breakfast.

OK, but I'm still hungry.

We'll get you something later.

Hit the dirt.

Do the honors.

All right, guys. Be still. And no

Cheeto fights this week, all right?

Come on, just dump the bag!

-Just dump the bag, dodo brain.

Beautiful! -Save

some for yourself.

OK, that's it.

Why are you guys

always picking on me?

Everybody get Evan!

All right. They're coming now.

-They won't come if you're not still.

Who farted?

Here they come!

Oh, one of 'em

just pooped on me.

Oh, man!

Oh! Oh, man!

I mean, this could be bad for our

health. I think I'm getting a fever.

Oh, my God!


Get 'em off!

What are you doing?

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought

you were in trouble.

So you hosed us? -No,

actually, I was trying to help.

Well, thanks.

I'm so sorry. What on

earth were you doing?

Feeding the birds.

There's not much

to do in Elma. -Oh.

Who are you anyway?

-I'm the new teacher.

No way!

I'm here from England for a

semester on a teaching exchange.

I guess they didn't tell you.

-Nobody tells us anything.

There's two classes. Little

kids... -And big kids.

Oh, I'm teaching the

big kids. -No way!

My name is Anna

Montgomery. I'm from England

and I will be your teacher for

the first half of the school year.

Uh, before you get all sweaty, don't

waste your time with us. We're losers.

You're not losers.

Yeah, we are. You just

don't know us very good.

Didn't anybody tell you?

We had the worst test

scores in the state.

So you all had a bad test day.

Four years in a row

we had bad test days?

Let's all get to know

each other, shall we?

Someone tell me something

that makes you feel special.


Right. I, uh...

I believe that you're all special

because you live here in America.

And America is a place where you

can be anything you want to be.

I think that was before

Reaganomics, ma'am.

I look out here today and

I see ten special faces.

That'll change once

you get used to us.

Let's think of this a

different way, shall we?

What makes you different from

the kid sitting next to you?

We have asthma!

-That's different.

All right. All

right, guys, um...

What about the rest of you,

huh? What makes you different?

Yes. Tak.

Well, I can burp the whole ABCs.

-Well, that's a skill, isn't it?

OK, all right. -Larry,

your burps stink.

Larry, what makes you special?

My dad has a job. -Yeah, that's

very special for this town.

Yes, I suppose so.

Kate... What about you?

My parents are divorced.

Thanks for bringing it up.

Shut up!

What's that? -First recess!

We've only just got here.

We have another hour.

Hello! Come back!

How many times do I have to tell

you to keep away from my car!

How many times have you

told us today, Deputy Dawg!

Go on, go on. Move it, move

it, move it! Move it, baby!

Come on, come on, off the car.

Out of my way, I got things to do.

Hey, you may think you know

everything, but here's a news flash.

Something radical finally

happened in this town.

Nothing radical ever

happens in this town.

Wrong! -Yeah. We

met our new teacher.

You get a new teacher every year.

-But this one's different, Deputy Dawg.

Really different!

Oh, guys, let's go.

-Bye, Deputy Dawg!

? Well. L"m hopin" and l"m prayin"

and l"m searchin" and l"m lookin"

? A nd I'm deatln'

and I'm thlnmkln'

? That it"s just a matter

of time before you"re a pearl

? And l"m gonna getcha.

My little old girl

Bingo! That's a code red.
