Axl: Can you just go please and I’ll meet you outside in 3 minutes. I promise.

Sue: Excuse me everyone. As you know I’m taking my driving exam on Friday and since the sixth time is the charm. I would like to make our last week on the bus together a week to remember. I would like to kick it off with having my bus buddies, aka you guys, sign my yearbook.

Brick: Hey mom quick thing. I need you take about 200 pictures of my classmates and set them to music in a slideshow. It should be touching but not schmaltzy, funny but not trying too hard. And if you could have it ready by Friday morning by 10…that’d be great. 11 at the latest. Good night.
Frankie: Whoa Whoa Whoa Brick. How long have you known about this?
Brick: What’s today Thursday? About 4 years…
