0:00:530:00:59

Hey, DW!

0:00:590:01:00

-HEY...

-Woh...! Ooh!

0:01:020:01:04

This better not be one of your wild goose chases!

0:01:110:01:15

Francine Frensky, prizewinning reporter,

0:01:150:01:18

is here with colleague, Muffy Crosswire

0:01:180:01:21

on the trail of...the truth.

0:01:210:01:23

I see a lawnmower...a snow-shovel...a couple of bikes...

0:01:230:01:28

..and I have information concerning the President.

0:01:280:01:32

-..and a talking rake?

-BEHIND the rake, simpletons!

0:01:320:01:35

I'm putting myself in great peril, coming to you.

0:01:350:01:39

Is THAT why you're disguising your voice?

0:01:390:01:42

No, it's just a sore throat.

0:01:420:01:44

Now listen carefully...

0:01:440:01:47

Check the files at Lakewood Elementary.

0:01:470:01:50

Who cares what President Powers did in sixth grade?

0:01:500:01:54

The shocking deed happened in...

0:01:540:01:58

-kindergarten!

-SHE COUGHS

0:01:580:02:02

Do either of your have a lozenge?!

0:02:020:02:05

Great news, Mr President!

0:02:060:02:08

Your reputation as the smartest President since Jefferson

0:02:080:02:12

is entirely secure.

0:02:120:02:13

But SHE's out there!

0:02:130:02:16

The one person who knows my secret!

0:02:160:02:18

And if the Press ever gets hold of it...

0:02:180:02:21

...Ohhh! We could bring down the presidency!

0:02:210:02:25

This proves it!

0:02:250:02:26

President Alan Powers, aka The Brain, is NOT what he seems!

0:02:260:02:32

-BARKING

-Hey!

0:02:350:02:37

HUMMING

0:02:390:02:42

Oh! Hello, Alan.

0:02:430:02:45

Why are YOU here after school?

0:02:450:02:47

I was getting some things for the chess club.

0:02:470:02:50

Mrs Robertson's retiring?

0:02:500:02:53

Yes, after 30 years of teaching kindergarten.

0:02:530:02:56

I thought she'd like a display of photos from every year she taught.

0:02:560:03:00

WHAT?!

0:03:000:03:01

Where did you get those photos?

0:03:020:03:05

From my private collection.

0:03:050:03:07

You never know who might become President one day.

0:03:070:03:10

Ahem...yes. Very interesting.

0:03:100:03:13

Speaking of which...I'm told you do shadow puppets.

0:03:130:03:17

I have trouble making a rabbit wearing a top hat.

0:03:170:03:20

Let's see... These fingers make the ears, of course.

0:03:200:03:24

For the hat... no, that's more of a Homburg...ah...

0:03:240:03:27

Just a little bit closer...

0:03:270:03:30

..top hat going round, except...

0:03:300:03:33

-Alan! You're still here.

-But...

0:03:330:03:35

I have sketches to show you of hat stands made in the 19th century

0:03:350:03:39

by the famous Oscar Houlindrope.

0:03:390:03:41

-You're the only one who'll find them as fascinating as I do.

-Oh...!

0:03:410:03:46

There just HAS to be a way to get into that display case

0:03:480:03:51

before SCHOOL tomorrow.

0:03:510:03:53

Why? What's the big deal?

0:03:530:03:55

What's the big deal?!

0:03:550:03:58

I'm in TWO kindergarten photos.

0:04:000:04:03

I should be in YOUR 4th-grade class.

0:04:030:04:06

But you were held back. I know. Remember?

0:04:060:04:08

I've been keeping your secret.

0:04:080:04:10

And you'll KEEP keeping it, right?

0:04:100:04:12

Cos if my friends found out why I flunked kindergarten...

0:04:120:04:16

They're your friends! THEY won't care. Besides,

0:04:160:04:19

kindergarten's history.

0:04:190:04:21

Who doesn't care about history?

0:04:210:04:23

If I told you King Tut had failed scribe school,

0:04:230:04:26

YOU'd care, all right.

0:04:260:04:28

I HAVE to get that photo, no matter what!

0:04:280:04:32

Of course! It's so simple!

0:04:370:04:40

A tunnelling machine!

0:04:400:04:42

MACHINE THUNDERS AND CREAKS

0:04:430:04:45

According to my calculations, I am now underneath the display case.

0:04:480:04:52

All I have to do is DRILL up...

0:04:520:04:54

Oop...

0:04:580:05:00

CROCKERY RATTLES

0:05:000:05:01

CRASH

0:05:010:05:02

Sorry!

0:05:040:05:06

OK. Bad idea.

0:05:070:05:09

Maybe I just need to close my eyes for a few minutes.

0:05:090:05:13

HE YAWNS

0:05:130:05:14

BIRD CHIRPS

0:05:170:05:18

Aah! It's 9 o'clock!

0:05:200:05:22

OK, don't panic...

0:05:250:05:26

Class is out for recess,

0:05:260:05:28

so perhaps no-one's had time to...

0:05:280:05:31

HE GASPS

0:05:310:05:32

Hey, look! In the kindergarten class before ours!

0:05:320:05:35

Is that...Brain?

0:05:350:05:36

Brain would only be in two photos in a row if...

0:05:360:05:39

Hi! Did you hear what's for lunch?

0:05:390:05:41

Tacos! Mmm... Who's up for a game of kickball?

0:05:410:05:45

Why did you go to kindergarten TWICE?

0:05:450:05:48

I didn't... I mean, well...

0:05:480:05:50

Brain, did you FLUNK kindergarten?

0:05:500:05:52

Brain wasn't smart enough to pass kindergarten first time.

0:05:520:05:56

What's the big deal?

0:05:560:05:58

Us flunkers need to stick together.

0:05:580:06:00

Ow!

0:06:000:06:01

It's actually "We flunkers", not "Us flunkers".

0:06:010:06:06

And of COURSE I was smart enough.

0:06:060:06:08

I was actually held back because...

0:06:080:06:11

-HE GULPS

-..well, because I'm a genius.

-Brain!

0:06:110:06:16

-Geniuses don't flunk!

-On the contrary...

0:06:160:06:19

Geniuses get bored easily in school, so they often do poorly....

0:06:190:06:23

Edison, Einstein... The list is endless.

0:06:230:06:26

Well, that's good enough for me. And it's good enough for you too...

0:06:260:06:31

..right?

0:06:310:06:32

ALL AGREE Makes perfect sense!

0:06:320:06:35

Phew! Thanks for the support.

0:06:350:06:37

Don't mention it.

0:06:370:06:38

Maybe at lunch you could give me one of your ta...cos?

0:06:380:06:43

What's wrong?

0:06:430:06:44

You said being held back is a sign of...genius.

0:06:440:06:48

-Yeah?

-I was held back! Last year!

0:06:480:06:50

And you said geniuses were bored at school!

0:06:500:06:54

Well, I'm...Mr Bored!

0:06:540:06:57

-Well... OK, but...

-I'm a genius!

0:06:570:07:00

Unless you're just making up that "genius" excuse?

0:07:000:07:04

Unless there's some OTHER reason you were held back?

0:07:040:07:07

O-Of course not. O-OK, gotta go. I have some...chess moves to study.

0:07:070:07:13

Hey, I'll go with you.

0:07:130:07:15

Us geniuses need to stick together.

0:07:150:07:17

that's..."WE geniuses".

0:07:170:07:20

Yeah. Yeah, remind me how many spaces that little horsie moves?

0:07:200:07:24

Geniuses play lots of chess, right?

0:07:240:07:27

HORSE WHINNIES

0:07:270:07:29

And...slam!

0:07:320:07:33

Your king's outta there. Woo-hoo, baby! I win again!

0:07:330:07:38

Yes... Congratulations.

0:07:380:07:40

I've never seen the leaping Ninja pawn head-chop used so...

0:07:400:07:44

effectively.

0:07:440:07:46

-That's cos I just made it up.

-BELL RINGS

0:07:460:07:48

Pretty geniusy, huh?

0:07:480:07:50

If I'm a genius, maybe I should have a cool nickname, something like..

0:07:500:07:55

..."The Brain"!

0:07:550:07:58

"The Brain" is already taken... by me, remember?

0:07:580:08:01

What about "The Whizz Kid"?

0:08:010:08:03

Nah... I like "The Brain". It sounds smart.

0:08:030:08:07

We'll find somethin' else for YOU.

0:08:070:08:10

Ohh...

0:08:100:08:11

HORSE WHINNIES

0:08:110:08:13

You want everyone to call you "The Oesophagus"?

0:08:130:08:17

Of course not!

0:08:170:08:18

but Binky... I mean, "The Brain"...

0:08:180:08:22

saw the word in my Anatomy book and thought it was perfect.

0:08:220:08:26

I wish you'd just tell the real reason you were held back!

0:08:260:08:29

They're going to find out sooner or later.

0:08:290:08:32

You haven't told anyone, have you?

0:08:320:08:34

I saw you talking with Muffy.

0:08:340:08:36

Were you talking about me?

0:08:360:08:39

You're getting paranoid, Oesophagus.

0:08:390:08:42

Paranoid? I'm not paranoid...!

0:08:420:08:44

Don't trust her! Never tell your secret!

0:08:460:08:49

Yeah! Us voices in your head are the ones you SHOULD listen to!

0:08:490:08:53

It's..."We" voices.

0:08:530:08:54

-You, sir?

-You're the one who was held back!

0:08:540:08:57

Another D-minus for you, Mr Barnes.

0:08:590:09:01

Didn't you study for the test?

0:09:010:09:04

Tests-mest! What's it matter if I pass or not?

0:09:040:09:07

You might get held back, again!

0:09:070:09:09

So? If a genius can get held back once,

0:09:090:09:12

just IMAGINE how much a genius I'll be if I get held back

0:09:120:09:16

TWO years in a row!

0:09:160:09:18

You're in the presence of ultra super de-luxe genius.

0:09:190:09:23

32 times I've been held back, and I owe it all

0:09:230:09:27

to my good friend, The Oesophagus.

0:09:270:09:29

If you let Binky continue to think he's a genius,

0:09:330:09:36

he may NEVER graduate.

0:09:360:09:38

Yeah! You better show him it isn't ALL fun and games.

0:09:380:09:42

Hey, Brain! Wanna come over after school?

0:09:420:09:45

I suppose you want a rematch in Ninja chess?

0:09:450:09:48

I was thinking of something a LITTLE more challenging.

0:09:480:09:52

Why do I need genius lessons?

0:09:520:09:54

It takes more than being held back a year to be a genius.

0:09:540:09:58

As Thomas Edison said, "Genius is 1% inspiration...

0:09:580:10:02

"and 99% perspiration."

0:10:020:10:05

What's "perspiration"?

0:10:050:10:08

Sweat.

0:10:080:10:09

-HE SNIFFS

-Oh, I'm a genius, all right!

0:10:090:10:12

Then you won't mind some brain teasers?

0:10:120:10:15

ROCK MUSIC

0:10:150:10:18

HE LAUGHS

0:10:320:10:34

So, did you get 3.906 as your answer?

0:10:370:10:41

No, but I spelled, "Hello" upside down!

0:10:410:10:44

I don't know, Oesophagus, maybe I'm not a genius after all.

0:10:440:10:48

I don't really like all this hard work, and...I'm starting to smell.

0:10:480:10:53

I'll say! When was the last time you changed your clothes?

0:10:530:10:57

Last week. You said Einstein always wore the same suit

0:10:570:11:01

so he could focus on physics, so I did the same thing.

0:11:010:11:05

I said, he wore the "identical" suit.

0:11:050:11:07

But he had a closet FULL of them.

0:11:070:11:10

Well, this is a little improvement on Einstein, isn't it?

0:11:100:11:13

There are other good reasons for being held back a year.

0:11:130:11:17

-Like what?

-Like...

0:11:170:11:19

Like...

0:11:190:11:21

Like she's telling everyone my secret!

0:11:210:11:24

..and then, she changed into a wolf so Mouldy-Wart wouldn't find her,

0:11:240:11:29

-and...

-Stop!

0:11:290:11:30

Don't believe her! I'm NOT a cryer!

0:11:300:11:32

-A what?

-A cryer.

0:11:320:11:35

Someone held back cos he wasn't emotionally ready!

0:11:350:11:38

That's what she said, right?

0:11:380:11:40

She was talking about the latest Henry Screever book.

0:11:400:11:44

-HE GASPS

-Excuse me a moment.

0:11:440:11:47

Now EVERYONE knows.

0:11:480:11:50

You were held back cos you cried a lot?

0:11:500:11:53

Not because you were a genius?

0:11:530:11:54

Yes... Isn't it awful?

0:11:540:11:57

I STILL cry sometimes,

0:11:570:11:59

and being held back isn't the end of the world!

0:11:590:12:01

It's true! Getting held back actually helped me.

0:12:010:12:04

Within a year, my nickname was "The Brain".

0:12:040:12:07

Oh, now it's "The Oesophagus",

0:12:070:12:09

-but...

-Nah... You can have "The Brain" back!

0:12:090:12:12

I'm happy with Binky.

0:12:120:12:14

Great. You're comin' to MY house. Not more brain teasers?

0:12:140:12:18

No, just some good old-fashioned studying.

0:12:180:12:21

You're gonna pass that test.

0:12:210:12:23

When I go to 4th grade next year,

0:12:230:12:25

you're coming with me!
