- Hey, Zack, awesome race.

- Thanks.

I guess you're looking good

for the nationals, eh? Congratulations.

Thanks. You coming to the party tonight?

Oh, yeah, yeah. As if I'd miss that!

We'll find a nice quiet corner

and you can blow me, then.

You know what, man? F*ck you, eh!


Sorry, I didn't hear. What was that?

- Got you, sweetheart.

- Excuse me?

Hey, Dazza. Good race, man.

Yeah, I suppose seventh is

an improvement.

You going to step things up for

the trials when they come round?

I'm not really in it

for the competition.

It's the shower time he likes.

Watch your arse around this one!

- Don't worry about him.

- Do I look worried?

You're two unit physics, aren't you?

- OK, that question makes me nervous.

- No, let's walk.

I can give you my notes.

Why don't you just look over

my course journal?

Look over? You mean complete.

Why not? You're good at that stuff.

- That's a whole term's worth of work.

- I just need a pass.

- Study?

- Look, look, listen, listen.

I'm actually making you an offer.

You understand me, right?

I'm not going to be responsible

if you fail.

I'll probably fail it anyway.

- Fine. Give me your notes.

- Man, you fucking rock the planet.

You coming to the house?

Shit, man, I've got work to do.

Don't be such a fucking martyr.

Enjoy yourself for once.

Well, that probably sucked for you, man.

- He giveth, he taketh away.

- Yeah, I reckon.

- Do you know what can be fun.

- What?

The sense of freedom - it's like

you can finally connect with people

because they let go of their barriers

and just be themselves.

But sometimes people can be

really scary when they're like that.

Yeah, I guess it depends.

- I'll see how I go, OK?

- OK.

Hey, he's coming.

- Hey.

- Hey.

I'll see you tonight?

Uh, maybe.

An improvement on last time.

Out of the car! Everyone out!

Out, out, out!

Techno music

Hi. What's your name?

- Nikki.

That's a nice name.

You are gorgeous. Do you model?

Dude, where are you?

How's the party, you big nerd?

Man, why aren't you down there?

Yeah, right.

Get out! Get out.

Get out!


- Hey.

- Hey, what's up?

- I'm getting sponsors.

- Oh.

OK, what's the cause?

Well, if we raise enough money,

a group of us are going to South America

to build houses for children

whose parents have been killed

by whatever crime,

natural disaster, you know.

That kind of thing.

- Cool. Are you going?

- Yeah! Yeah, yeah.

- Oh!

- Will you sponsor me?

- Sure.

- Cool.

- It's not Christian or anything, right?

- No.

- Sweet. So, do I put in, like...

- Whatever you can.

Thanks for that.

You know that swimmer guy

with the big head

who keeps sending me pictures of his...


So check studentremains.org.

- Why?

- Just...

Oh, my God!

Oh, my...

- It's not even that impressive!

- I know.

He totally had this coming.

Who do you think posted it?

My secret protector?

He's all yours, is he?

You're crushing.

I'm...a little crushie, but shut up.

'Now I stand where I struck

and the deed is done.

This was my work.

I cast my net,

wrapping him in a robe rich in evil.

He collapsed, gasping out

his last breath, his life ebbing away.

And I rejoiced

just as the newly sown earth rejoices.'

Zack? Zack! I'm talking to you.

Hey, where you been, man?

I'm thinking about finals, actually.

God. Why? It's like half a year away.

Is that Shay O'Brien?


Shay, what are you doing here?

Nothing. I'm just walking.

So which was it?

Come on.

I don't know. It's like...

Just really feels like

it's our last year, that's all.


Does it make you sad?
