Saturday,

March 24, 1984.

Shermer High School,

Shermer, lllinois, 60062.

Dear Mr. Vernon...

We accept that

we had to sacrifice...

a whole Saturday in detention

for whatever it was we did wrong.

What we did was wrong...

but we think you're crazy

to make us write an essay...

telling you who we think we are.

What do you care?

You see us as you want to see us...

in the simplest terms,

the most convenient definitions.

You see us as a brain...

an athlete...

a basket case...

a princess...

and a criminal.

Correct?

That's the way we saw each other

at 7:
00 this morning.

We were brainwashed.

I can't believe

you can't get me out of this.

It's so absurd

I have to be here on a Saturday.

It's not like

I'm a defective or anything.

I'll make it up to you.

Honey, ditching class to go shopping

doesn't make you a defective.

Have a good day.

Is this the first

or last time we do this?

Last.

Get in there and use the time

to your advantage.

Mom, we're not supposed to study.

- Mister, you figure out a way to study.

- Yeah.

Well, go!

Hey, I screwed around.

There's nothing

wrong with that...

except you got caught, sport.

Yeah, Mom already

reamed me, all right?

You want to miss a match?

Blow your ride?

No school is going to give

a scholarship to a discipline case.

Well, well.

Here we are.

I want to congratulate you

for being on time.

Excuse me, sir?

I think there's been a mistake.

I know it's detention, but, um,

I don't think I belong in here.

It is now 7:
06.

You have exactly 8 hours and 54 minutes

to think about why you're here.

- Ponder the error of your ways.

- [ Spits ]

You may not talk.

You will not move

from these seats.

And you...

will not sleep.

All right, people, we're going to

try something different today.

We are going to write an essay...

of no less than 1,000 words...

describing to me

who you think you are.

- Is this a test?

- When I say "essay," I mean essay.

I do not mean a single word

repeated 1,000 times.

Is that clear, Mr. Bender?

- Crystal.

- Good.

Maybe you'll learn a little something

about yourself.

Maybe you'll even decide

whether you care to return.

You know,

I can answer that right now, sir.

- That'd be "no" for me, because--

- Sit down, Johnson.

Thank you, sir.

My office is

right across that hall.

Any monkey business is ill-advised.

Any questions?

Y eah, I got a question.

Does Barry Manilow know

you raid his wardrobe?

I'll answer that, Mr. Bender,

next Saturday.

Don't mess with the bull, young man,

you'll get the horns.

That man is a brownie hound.

Keep eating your hand,

you won't be hungry for lunch.

I've seen you

before, you know.

Who I think I am.

Who are you?

Who are you?

I am a walrus.

It's the shits, huh?

## [ Humming lntroduction To

"Sunshine Of Your Love" ]

I can't believe

this is really happening to me.

[ Bender ] Oh, shit!
