Mrs. Myers: A few ground rules for this classroom. No talking. No chewing gum. No electronic devices. Beforewarned. If you download any essay off the Internet, you'll be downloaded into detention. Let's start the year off on the right foot and all do our own work. I expect you to take notes.
Scott: Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, Beep-beep-beep-beep-beep. Know what that is? My loser detector. [Continues beeping]
Mrs. Myers: Jesse Aarons! I got it from your sisters. I certainly do not need it from you.
Jess: Oh, man.
Mrs. Myers: That goes for you as well.
Scott: He hit me.
Gary: You're dead meat.
Mrs. Myers: Scott Hoager and Gary Fulcher, be quiet! Now, back to what we were discussing before we were so rudely interrupted.
Scott: Sweet sneaks, Aarons. You wear your sisters' hand-me-down underwear too?
Gary: He asked you a question, twinkle toes.
[Knock on door]
Principal Turner: Good morning, kids. Welcome back. I hope you had a great summer. Mrs. Myers, this is Leslie Burke, who will be joining your class. Leslie, welcome to Lark Creek.
Mrs. Myers: Thank you, Principal Turner. [Class whispering]
Mrs. Myers: Well, Leslie, um, you'll sit at my desk this morning, until we can figure out where to squeeze you in.
Mrs. Myers: [Exhales] I like to start the year with a little fun. I want you all to write a one-page essay about your favorite hobby.
Mrs. Myers: Yes?
Madison: Mrs. Myers, when you say one page, did you mean both sides of the paper?
Mrs. Myers: You can do one side, Madison.
Madison: I'll do two.
Janice: Yeah, that's cool.
Girl 1: No way!
Girl 2: It was so amazing.
Girl 3: Can I have this?
Janice: You could have two bucks out of it all. I'm getting most of it, OK?
Leslie: Excuse me.
Janice: Got a dollar?
Janice: Then you're gonna have to use your pants.
Leslie: What's your problem?
Janice: You got that backwards, freak. You got the problem.
Girl: That's right, new girl.
Leslie: Nice feet.
Janice: You say something?
Leslie: What I said was, have you ever heard the story about the trolls under the bridges who collect tolls from unlucky travelers?
Girl: Trolls? What is she talking about?
Janice: Nice try, beanpole. [Whispering] It's still a dollar.
Boys: Yeah! Let's do it. Do it.
Teacher: Next grade, line up. Let's do this thing. Come on. Fulcher, Hoager, get in here. Get ready. Come on. Let's get this race started. Come on.
Scott: Beep, beep, beep.
Gary: Dead meat.
Teacher: Back behind the line. You know how it goes. Back behind. Come on.
Scott: Hey, new girl. This is just for guys. Hey, I'm talking to you!
Jess: What's the matter? Afraid a girl's gonna beat you?
Teacher: On your mark. Get set.
Gary: Dead meat.
Teacher: Go, Hoager! Get in there!
May Belle: Go! Go, Jess, go! Come on! Come on! You can do it! Come on, Jess! Go, Jess, go! Jess, Jess, did you win?
Leslie: Hey, Jess, right?
