God!

0:01:110:01:14

So bloated.

0:01:120:01:14

-She's bingeing.

-Bingeing? She's fat.

0:01:140:01:17

Honey?

0:01:240:01:25

I thought I'd lost you, honey.

0:01:280:01:30

I think it's a thyroid problem.

0:01:340:01:36

I think she's just fat.

0:01:360:01:38

What's wrong? What's wrong, honey?

0:02:050:02:07

-It's too soon.

-Oh!

0:02:070:02:10

Guys, come here!

0:02:100:02:12

HORN TOOTS

0:02:120:02:15

Easy.

0:02:150:02:18

Brian, what's happening?

0:02:230:02:25

Help! Would someone please help me? I have an emergency here!

0:02:250:02:29

Yeah, call the doctor.

0:02:290:02:31

Please, can you call Dr Benfante?

0:02:310:02:34

BEEPING

0:02:340:02:36

Oh, I'm sorry.

0:02:360:02:39

Help me! Help me, please!

0:02:370:02:39

BEEPING

0:02:450:02:47

No, I don't have anything.

0:02:470:02:50

Honey, it's your tin!

0:02:500:02:52

Oh!

0:02:520:02:53

OK.

0:02:540:02:56

No smoking.

0:02:590:03:01

I'm gonna quit tomorrow. I swear.

0:03:020:03:04

No, sideways. Come through. That's it.

0:03:060:03:08

When are you due, ma'am?

0:03:080:03:12

Not for seven months.

0:03:100:03:12

GROANING

0:03:180:03:20

EVERYONE TALKS AT ONCE

0:03:220:03:25

You had Lamaze?

0:03:280:03:30

I haven't even signed up for the course yet.

0:03:300:03:33

I'm only two months along. Ow!

0:03:330:03:36

That's the epidural talking.

0:03:360:03:39

She hasn't had one.

0:03:370:03:39

What are you babbling about?

0:03:390:03:41

Ow! It's too soon!

0:03:410:03:43

It's too soon, Brian!

0:03:430:03:47

Here he comes.

0:03:450:03:47

OK, calm down.

0:03:470:03:49

Take it easy. Calm down. Everybody calm down.

0:03:490:03:52

It's too early for contractions.

0:03:520:03:54

-Hold tight. Hold my hand.

-Ah!

0:03:550:03:57

Just relax.

0:03:570:04:00

Christ!

0:04:010:04:03

Come back next week?

0:04:030:04:05

It was just fluid retention? Go home, have fun?

0:04:050:04:08

I'm not having fun!

0:04:080:04:11

You gotta breathe!

0:04:110:04:13

It's fine, for a full-term pregnancy.

0:04:130:04:15

Doc, what's going on?

0:04:150:04:17

She's fully dilated.

0:04:170:04:19

-It'll be OK.

-Now you gotta push.

-It's too soon!

0:04:190:04:22

Push. Push!

0:04:220:04:24

Push! Good girl!

0:04:240:04:26

-No, it's too soon!

-One more time.

0:04:260:04:29

One more deep breath. One more deep breath.

0:04:290:04:34

SHE MOANS AND CRIES

0:04:340:04:37

BABY CRIES

0:04:440:04:47

Look at that! A baby!

0:04:490:04:51

It's a beautiful, beautiful boy.

0:04:510:04:55

Hey, there, bud.

0:04:570:04:59

Oh!

0:04:590:05:00

Hi!

0:05:000:05:02

Don't rust up on me now.

0:05:050:05:07

I'm sorry.

0:05:070:05:09

We'll call him...Jack.

0:05:110:05:13

# What are you gonna be when you grow up?

0:05:130:05:16

# What do you wanna do when your time is up?

0:05:160:05:21

# What are you gonna say when things go wrong?

0:05:210:05:23

# What are you gonna do when you're on your own?

0:05:230:05:26

# There's a road

0:05:260:05:28

# Long and winding

0:05:290:05:32

# The lights are blinding

0:05:320:05:35

# But it gets there

0:05:370:05:39

# Don't give up

0:05:390:05:41

# Don't look back

0:05:430:05:45

# There's a silver lining

0:05:460:05:49

# It's out there somewhere

0:05:500:05:52

# Everybody wants an answer

0:05:540:05:57

# Everybody needs a friend

0:05:570:06:00

# We all need a shining star

0:06:010:06:04

# On which we can depend

0:06:040:06:07

# So tonight we're gonna wish upon a star

0:06:070:06:11

# We've never wished upon before

0:06:110:06:14

# What are you going to be when you grow up?

0:06:140:06:18

# What are you going to do when your time is up?

0:06:180:06:20

# There'll be times

0:06:200:06:22

# In your life, yeah

0:06:230:06:28

# You'll be dazzled, I'm sure

0:06:290:06:31

# Don't get disillusioned

0:06:340:06:37

# No, don't expect too much

0:06:370:06:40

# Because if what you have is all you can get

0:06:410:06:43

# Just keep on trying

# We never wished upon before. #

0:07:060:07:09

I'm sorry this has taken so long.

0:07:140:07:16

Like you, we're puzzled by your son's premature birth.

0:07:160:07:20

This is Dr Lin.

0:07:200:07:22

He's an infant disorder specialist from Cornell.

0:07:220:07:25

I want to assure you both

0:07:250:07:28

that there is nothing debilitating about your son's condition.

0:07:280:07:32

He's totally healthy, normal in appearance, alert and quite happy.

0:07:320:07:36

However, his cells are developing at four times the normal rate.

0:07:360:07:41

Even though he was ten weeks old when he was born,

0:07:410:07:44

physically he was nine months, and ready to leave your womb.

0:07:440:07:48

Nature has given us all

0:07:490:07:50

an internal clock.

0:07:500:07:52

It meters out lifespan,

0:07:520:07:54

controls our growth.

0:07:540:07:56

Your son's internal clock

0:07:560:07:59

seems to be ticking faster than usual.

0:07:590:08:02

But he's healthy?

0:08:020:08:04

Absolutely.

0:08:040:08:06

I'm sorry. I...still don't understand.

0:08:080:08:11

I've never heard of anything like this before.

0:08:110:08:14

Well, quite frankly, neither have we.

0:08:140:08:16

There are other ageing syndromes that we know of.

0:08:160:08:19

Progeria, which is very devastating to the child.

0:08:190:08:23

Jack's cells are replicating at an unheard-of rate.

0:08:230:08:26

Is he going to continue to age like this?

0:08:260:08:28

Well, this is only speculation.

0:08:290:08:31

But...we feel that...

0:08:310:08:33

at age one,

0:08:330:08:35

your son may be physically around age four.

0:08:350:08:39

And if this continues

0:08:390:08:41

throughout his life, by the time he reaches age ten...

0:08:410:08:44

Well, he could...

0:08:440:08:49

Appear to be an ordinary, full-grown...

0:08:450:08:49

40-year-old man.

0:08:490:08:51

Are you serious?

0:08:510:08:53

That's where he lives.

0:08:590:09:00

Right down the street, and I didn't even know about it.

0:09:000:09:04

I don't believe any of it. He's lying.

0:09:050:09:07

Yeah.

0:09:070:09:09

He's not a monster. There's no such thing.

0:09:090:09:12

He's our age, but he looks 40.

0:09:120:09:15

All hairy, and everything.

0:09:160:09:18

He's like a freak, or something.

0:09:180:09:20

Just like in that movie.

0:09:200:09:22

Which movie?

0:09:220:09:24

Duh!

0:09:240:09:26

Sorry.

0:09:260:09:29

The one with the freak in it.

0:09:270:09:29

What did I just say?

0:09:290:09:33

Oh, yeah. I saw that one.

0:09:300:09:33

He didn't see it.

0:09:310:09:33

His mom wouldn't let him. He has nightmares.

0:09:330:09:36

ALIEN VOICE: I mean you no harm.

0:09:360:09:39

Why haven't we ever seen him?

0:09:370:09:39

I heard he's got all kinds of toys, too.

0:09:400:09:43

His parents buy him everything.

0:09:430:09:45

If he's our age, why ain't he in school?

0:09:450:09:47

Because he's dangerous.

0:09:470:09:49

He's huge enough to hurt other kids.

0:09:490:09:51

That's why they keep him locked up.

0:09:510:09:54

ALIEN VOICE: Friend.

0:09:540:09:56

What do you see?

0:09:560:09:58

Nothing.

0:09:580:10:00

A teacher comes to his house every day.

0:10:020:10:05

ALIEN GRUNTING

0:10:050:10:07

Jack, you're not paying attention.

0:10:100:10:13

Jack, you're not paying attention.

0:10:140:10:16

ALIEN VOICE: Don't be afraid.

0:10:160:10:18

I saw him in the store with his mom. I thought it was her husband.

0:10:180:10:22

But he's like a giant boy. He shaves, and stuff.

0:10:220:10:25

There's no such thing as giants.

0:10:250:10:27

Well, how did he get like that?

0:10:280:10:30

Maybe his mom took drugs.

0:10:300:10:32

Maybe it was that fertility junk, and she was gonna have quintuplets,

0:10:320:10:36

but it just turned into one big baby.

0:10:360:10:39

Doof!

0:10:390:10:41

He sleeps up there.

0:10:410:10:43

He's a monstrosity.

0:10:430:10:45

That's why they hide him.

0:10:450:10:47

No wonder they keep him out of school.

0:10:480:10:50

Maybe they got him chained up.

0:10:500:10:52

Maybe they only let him loose once a day to eat.

0:10:520:10:55

That a pile of bones in his yard?

0:10:550:10:57

Where? I don't see...

0:10:570:11:00

Look!

0:10:580:11:00

Look!

0:11:000:11:02

ALL SCREAM

0:11:020:11:04

-We gotta get outta here!

-Ugh! Gross!

0:11:090:11:11

Louis! He's watching you! Come on!

0:11:110:11:14

THEY SCREAM

0:11:170:11:19

Ow!

0:11:380:11:40

What happened? What did you do? Where does it hurt?

0:11:410:11:44

My knee.

0:11:440:11:47

Let me see.

0:11:450:11:47

HE WHIMPERS

0:11:470:11:49

Well, it's not bleeding. OK.

0:11:490:11:51

It's not?

0:11:510:11:54

I can fix it for you.

0:11:520:11:54

I'll bite it.

0:11:540:11:58

No, no, no, don't bite it!

0:11:560:11:58

I have to bite it.

0:11:580:12:01

Don't. It'll get infected.

0:11:590:12:01

OK, but this leg has got to come off.

0:12:010:12:03

I'll get a saw.

0:12:030:12:06

No!

0:12:040:12:06

I saw your butt!

0:12:090:12:11

Yeah, you did.

0:12:110:12:15

Sorry.

0:12:120:12:15

What do you hear?

0:12:200:12:23

Nothing. It's OK.

0:12:210:12:23

How about the toes?

0:12:230:12:26

My toes are OK.

0:12:240:12:26

How about that?

0:12:260:12:29

That's good.

0:12:270:12:29

HE GIGGLES

0:12:290:12:31

That feels good now.

0:12:330:12:35

I told you about those laces, champ.

0:12:350:12:38

Yeah, yeah.

0:12:380:12:40

You did. Sorry.

0:12:400:12:42

So, where were we?

0:12:490:12:51

History.

0:12:510:12:54

History, OK.

0:12:520:12:54

So...

0:12:540:12:56

By the time he was eighteen, the young Alexander

0:12:570:13:00

had already conquered most of the Greek city-states.

0:13:000:13:04

Some feel that he learned everything from his tutor,

0:13:040:13:07

Aristotle.

0:13:070:13:09

Jack?

0:13:110:13:13

Jack?

0:13:140:13:16

What did I just say?

0:13:160:13:18

Aristotle.

0:13:180:13:21

Where's Aristotle?

0:13:210:13:24

Book.

0:13:220:13:23

Where's Jack?

0:13:230:13:25

Outside.

0:13:250:13:28

What you have set up here is wonderful.

0:13:310:13:33

I'm not trying to take anything away from that.

0:13:330:13:36

I know you're not,

0:13:360:13:38

but to say that Jack should start going to public school is crazy.

0:13:380:13:42

Because a person is...

0:13:440:13:46

different, you can't make an outcast of him.

0:13:460:13:49

We'll talk to the Principal. The Principal will prepare the students.

0:13:490:13:53

Mr Woodruff, he's got a five-o'clock shadow.

0:13:530:13:56

I don't think he can...

0:13:560:13:58

fit in.

0:13:580:14:00

I wish he could.

0:14:000:14:02

Jack's got to develop defence mechanisms,

0:14:020:14:05

just like any child with a shortcoming.

0:14:050:14:07

I appreciate what you're trying to do,

0:14:070:14:10

but Brian and I,

0:14:100:14:12

we've seen how people react.

0:14:120:14:14

We've been through this before.

0:14:140:14:16

We just don't want Jack...

0:14:160:14:19

..to have to face that.

0:14:210:14:23

Look at his eyes.

0:14:240:14:26

His child's eyes.

0:14:280:14:30

Look at his eyes when he sees other children.

0:14:320:14:35

His life moves faster than ours,

0:14:380:14:41

and he wants to lead a full life.

0:14:410:14:43

You shouldn't let it pass him by.

0:14:430:14:45

It's not fair.

0:14:450:14:47

Marco?

0:14:580:15:01

Polo.

0:14:590:15:01

FIENDISH LAUGHTER

0:15:030:15:05

I have found you now!

0:15:100:15:12

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

0:15:120:15:16

Gotcha!

0:15:130:15:16

Gotta touch me!

0:15:140:15:16

SHOUTING

0:15:160:15:18

Would you two knock it off up there?!

0:15:200:15:23

"Would you two knock it off up there?!"

0:15:230:15:26

PANTING

0:15:280:15:30

Marco?

0:15:330:15:36

Polo.

0:15:340:15:36

Gotcha! You're it!

0:15:420:15:44

Honey?

0:15:440:15:46

Are you OK?

0:15:460:15:49

Yeah, I'm OK.

0:15:470:15:49

You know, if something's wrong, you can tell me.

0:15:530:15:56

Mr Woodruff mentioned something today.

0:15:560:15:59

What, honey? Huh?

0:16:020:16:04

You can tell me.

0:16:050:16:07

Mom, am I a giant?

0:16:110:16:13

No, of course not!

0:16:130:16:16

Where did you hear that?

0:16:180:16:20

Is that why I don't go to school?

0:16:200:16:22

Honey...

0:16:220:16:24

I've told you.

0:16:240:16:26

It's lots of things.

0:16:260:16:29

What things?

0:16:290:16:31

We'll talk about this, OK?

0:16:320:16:34

When?

0:16:340:16:36

Well, not right now. It's time...

0:16:360:16:38

Time for bed. Brush your teeth. Put down the lid.

0:16:380:16:41

'Night, Mom.

0:16:420:16:44

Woodruff doesn't know what he's talking about.

0:16:570:17:00

Then why are we paying him all this money to tutor Jack?

0:17:000:17:04

I blame him.

0:17:050:17:07

Filling Jack's head with ideas of going to school.

0:17:070:17:10

Imagine that.

0:17:100:17:13

A teacher wanting a kid to go to school.

0:17:130:17:15

Where do they get such ideas?

0:17:170:17:19

That's how we do it?

0:17:200:17:22

Just throw him into school?

0:17:230:17:25

You know how children are.

0:17:260:17:28

They make fun of the fat kid,

0:17:290:17:31

and the kid who wears glasses.

0:17:310:17:34

What do you think they're gonna do to the six foot, hairy kid?

0:17:340:17:38

Mom?

0:17:500:17:52

Dad?

0:17:520:17:56

Jackie. Are you OK, honey?

0:17:530:17:56

Something wrong?

0:17:560:18:00

I'm OK. Just can't sleep. I had a scary dream.

0:17:570:18:00

Can I sleep in here?

0:18:010:18:03

Er...yeah, of course, buddy.

0:18:030:18:06

Stimpy, too?

0:18:060:18:09

Sure.

0:18:070:18:09

Easy.

0:18:110:18:13

Hey, come on, come on.

0:18:250:18:27

Go to sleep.

0:18:290:18:31

Good night, Mom.

0:18:310:18:33

Good night, sweetie.

0:18:330:18:35

Good night, Dad.

0:18:350:18:37

You sure he's ready for school?

0:18:460:18:48

Jack'll be fine.

0:18:510:18:53

It's the rest of the world I'm worried about.

Psyched.

Welcome, welcome, welcome.

0:21:340:21:37

Thank you.

0:21:370:21:39

Mr and Mrs Powell, and Jack.

0:21:390:21:41

Jack, how nice to see you.

0:21:410:21:43

I'm Mr McGee. I've heard so much about you, Jack.

0:21:430:21:46

Hello, Mr Magoo.

0:21:460:21:48

McGee.

0:21:480:21:51

Oh, McGee. Magoo.

0:21:490:21:51

Jack, would you like to see your classroom? Yes?

0:21:510:21:54

(Yes.)

0:21:560:21:59

A little louder.

0:21:570:21:59

(Yes.)

0:21:580:21:59

A little louder, Jack.

0:21:590:22:01

YES!!

0:22:010:22:04

Follow me.

0:22:040:22:07

(Is he deaf?)

0:22:080:22:11

Tell me, Jack,

0:22:090:22:11

what do you think of it so far?

0:22:110:22:13

Humongous heckacool.

0:22:130:22:16

It is heckacool.

0:22:140:22:16

And a wonderful school.

0:22:160:22:18

A fun school. An up-beat school.

0:22:190:22:22

I hope you'll have the time of your life here.

0:22:220:22:25

You'll have some wonderful teachers,

0:22:250:22:27

and wonderful pupils.

0:22:270:22:29

And you're going to be one of them.

0:22:290:22:31

Here's your classroom, right here.

0:22:310:22:34

Miss Marquez.

0:22:340:22:36

Honey, you want to be buttoned up.

0:22:360:22:38

Too tight?

0:22:380:22:40

Don't give me a snuggie.

0:22:400:22:42

OK.

0:22:420:22:44

Don't. Gross.

0:22:440:22:46

Embarrassing me!

0:22:460:22:48

If anybody's mean with you,

0:22:480:22:50

you just tell your teacher,

0:22:500:22:52

and someone will call me, and I'll kill 'em.

0:22:520:22:54

Ready, Jack?

0:22:560:22:58

Yes.

0:22:590:23:02

Are there any other questions?

0:23:020:23:04

Miss Marquez, excuse me.

0:23:070:23:09

Your new student, Jack Powell, has just arrived.

0:23:090:23:13

Jack, this is Miss Marquez, your fifth-grade teacher.

0:23:140:23:18

Come in, please.

0:23:180:23:20

Don't be shy.

0:23:200:23:22

Come in, Jack.

0:23:290:23:31

Come in.

0:23:310:23:33

Whoa, no way!

0:23:390:23:41

Jeez, he looks like my dad.

0:23:440:23:46

Except hairier.

0:23:460:23:48

Come on.

0:23:510:23:53

It's OK. Welcome to our class. I'm glad you're here.

0:23:530:23:56

This place...is for fun.

0:23:560:23:59

Everybody,

0:23:590:24:01

this is Jack Powell.

0:24:010:24:03

Class?

0:24:040:24:06

Hi, Jack.

0:24:060:24:08

-ALL:

-Hi, Jack.

0:24:090:24:11

Hi.

0:24:110:24:13

All right, I know some of you must be curious about Jack.

0:24:130:24:16

So why don't we just take some time

0:24:160:24:19

and ask him some of the questions you've got on your minds?

0:24:190:24:22

Is that all right with you, Jack?

0:24:220:24:24

Sure, I don't mind.

0:24:240:24:27

(Go on, ask him something.)

0:24:270:24:29

(I'm not asking him.)

0:24:290:24:33

Louis?

0:24:310:24:33

Anybody?

0:24:350:24:37

Come on, since when was this group shy? All right, fine.

0:24:370:24:40

Jack, when's your birthday?

0:24:400:24:43

September 12th.

0:24:440:24:46

1902!

0:24:460:24:48

That's enough! Hmm, let me see...

0:24:480:24:50

Oh, what kind of foods do you just hate?

0:24:500:24:53

Broccoli.

0:24:530:24:57

Broccoli.

0:24:540:24:57

Makes you fart.

0:24:550:24:57

Anybody else here hate broccoli? Hands.

0:24:580:25:01

Yeah.

0:25:010:25:03

Uh-huh.

0:25:030:25:05

It looks like you've got more in common than you think.

0:25:050:25:08

Jack, your seat's in the back.

0:25:100:25:12

You go sit down and we'll get started, OK?

0:25:120:25:14

(OK.)

0:25:140:25:16

All right,

0:25:190:25:21

everybody take out your giant b...

0:25:210:25:23

I mean, your geography books.

0:25:230:25:25

Turn to page 78.

0:25:290:25:31

We found out the other day that the name California

0:25:330:25:36

was initially used for... Everybody calm down.

0:25:360:25:40

I think he's stuck.

0:25:400:25:43

Used for Baja California.

0:25:410:25:43

It was first used by Cortes in the 1530s,

0:25:430:25:46

and was found in the journal of Juan Rodrigues Cabrillo in 1542.

0:25:460:25:50

Victor, eyes up front! Everybody, come on. Calm down.

0:25:500:25:54

Jack, are you OK?

0:25:570:25:59

Are you all right, sweetie? You sure you don't need help?

0:26:020:26:06

OK?

0:26:260:26:28

I'm OK.

0:26:260:26:28

Jack!

0:26:310:26:33

Woof! Woof!

0:27:080:27:10

The dog always gets 'em.

0:27:120:27:14

HE HISSES

0:27:140:27:16

Oh, man, he's looking at us!

0:27:160:27:19

He probably recognises us from the street.

0:27:190:27:22

He's probably planning on kicking our butts.

0:27:220:27:25

Watch where my ball is going!

0:27:460:27:51

Maybe if you knew how to play the game...

0:27:480:27:51

What was that?!

0:27:510:27:53

You heard. You know the problem?

0:27:530:27:55

You have Zackly disease.

0:27:550:27:58

What's that?

0:27:580:28:01

Yeah?

0:27:590:28:00

Your mouth smells zackly like your butt!

0:28:000:28:03

Shut up! That's pathetic!

0:28:030:28:05

I forgot to laugh!

0:28:050:28:07

Losers say what?

0:28:070:28:11

What?

0:28:080:28:11

Losers!

0:28:090:28:11

You think you're so tough?

0:28:110:28:13

Take it on the court, so I can whup your butt.

0:28:130:28:17

Come on, John-John.

0:28:170:28:19

Why does he always drag me along? He's gonna cream us.

0:28:190:28:23

Ow! Don't!

0:28:260:28:28

Are you a freak?

0:28:280:28:30

No.

0:28:300:28:32

Jane says that you're a freak.

0:28:320:28:34

Who's Jane?

0:28:340:28:37

I'm Jane. I think you are a freak.

0:28:350:28:37

Look at your hairy arms, and your eyebrows.

0:28:370:28:40

He has a receding hairline.

0:28:400:28:42

Well, I'm not a freak.

0:28:420:28:44

Don't, or I'll tell!

0:28:460:28:49

How old are you?

0:28:490:28:52

I'm ten.

0:28:500:28:52

How old are you?

0:28:520:28:56

I'm eight.

0:28:530:28:56

Yeah?

0:28:540:28:56

So?

0:28:560:28:59

You don't look ten.

0:28:570:28:59

Look, you've got the hairy arms.

0:28:590:29:02

You've got hairy knuckles.

0:29:020:29:04

You look a lot older than us.

0:29:040:29:07

It looks like you shave.

0:29:070:29:09

Yeah, I do. So?

0:29:090:29:12

A ten-year-old doesn't shave, so then you can't be ten.

0:29:120:29:16

You can't be ten if you shave and you're really tall

0:29:160:29:19

and you're bigger.

0:29:190:29:21

So I'm big for my age.

0:29:220:29:25

You have no hair.

0:29:250:29:28

I have hair. See?

0:29:260:29:28

Yeah, but look. Right here you have no hair. It looks like you're bald.

0:29:280:29:32

-I'm not a freak.

-You're a freak, four-eyes.

0:29:320:29:35

He's ten.

0:29:350:29:37

A whole two years older than us, see?

0:29:370:29:40

Oh, sure(!) Like that explains it. Puh-lease!

0:29:400:29:44

Don't poke me, or I'm telling!

0:29:510:29:53

Yeah!

0:29:560:29:58

Losers!

0:29:590:30:01

Hey, how about a little help?

0:30:130:30:15

Throw it over.

0:30:170:30:21

Yeah, throw it over.

0:30:190:30:21

Wait!

0:30:260:30:28

I'm not touching that. It's contaminated now.

0:30:280:30:31

Yeah, I ain't touching it.

0:30:310:30:34

Yeah, I ain't playing basketball for a week.

0:30:340:30:37

Me, too. Five weeks. Cooties!

0:30:370:30:40

BELL RINGS

0:30:400:30:42

Jack? Honey?

0:31:040:31:06

I made Sloppy Joes for dinner.

0:31:080:31:10

I'm not hungry, Mom.

0:31:110:31:13

Really juicy ones.

0:31:130:31:17

Yeah?

0:31:150:31:17

You're gonna love it.

0:31:170:31:20

No, I won't.

0:31:180:31:20

Guess what I made for dessert.

0:31:200:31:22

What?

0:31:220:31:24

You have to guess.

0:31:250:31:27

Can you smell it?

0:31:290:31:32

Not through a box.

0:31:300:31:32

Chocolate pudding!

0:31:320:31:34

Your favourite.

0:31:360:31:39

Not any more, Mom.

0:31:370:31:39

It's still hot.

0:31:390:31:41

Mmm, I can smell it. It's steaming.

0:31:420:31:46

No, thanks.

0:31:440:31:46

This is serious.

0:32:020:32:04

What happened?

0:32:040:32:06

What do you think happened?

0:32:060:32:08

Children whispering, children pointing.

0:32:080:32:11

He's not used to that, Brian.

0:32:110:32:13

Karen...

0:32:130:32:15

Jack?

0:32:180:32:20

Hey, Mom made Sloppy Joes.

0:32:250:32:28

Mom hates Sloppy Joes.

0:32:280:32:30

Er...that's true.

0:32:300:32:32

In fact, all adults hate Sloppy Joes,

0:32:320:32:35

but we make 'em to cheer up a kid who's had a bad day.

0:32:350:32:38

Wanna tell me about it?

0:32:380:32:40

No.

0:32:390:32:40

OK.

0:32:400:32:42

I was just thinking about the first time you rode a bike. Remember?

0:32:440:32:49

Oh, yeah.

0:32:490:32:51

I mean, you were so determined to ride.

0:32:510:32:53

You kept wiping out.

0:32:530:32:56

Nearly took out a couple of the neighbours.

0:32:570:33:00

You know, it took a couple of days until you finally got it.

0:33:000:33:04

But look at you now.

0:33:040:33:06

You're riding like a pro.

0:33:060:33:08

Kinda like school, isn't it?

0:33:100:33:12

Yeah?

0:33:120:33:14

Well, anyway, I just...

0:33:140:33:17

wanted to see how you were doing.

0:33:170:33:19

You need anything, give me a holler.

0:33:190:33:22

Hey, Dad.

0:33:260:33:28

Could we put up a basketball hoop?

0:33:280:33:30

Yeah.

0:33:320:33:34

I'll be back in a second.

0:33:550:33:57

Hey, in there.

0:34:040:34:06

How are you doing, Jack?

0:34:060:34:10

Hi, Miss Marquez.

0:34:070:34:10

Oh, are those gummy bears?

0:34:160:34:18

Could I have a red one? It's my favourite.

0:34:190:34:22

Yeah?

0:34:250:34:27

Thanks.

0:34:270:34:29

So, how do you like it so far?

0:34:350:34:37

-CHANTING:

-Miss Marquez and Jack!

0:34:410:34:43

Sitting in a tree!

0:34:430:34:45

K-I-S-S-I-N-G!

0:34:450:34:48

Girls!

0:34:480:34:50

Jack, if anybody bothers you, you just come and tell me.

0:34:530:34:57

OK?

0:34:570:34:59

OK.

0:34:580:34:59

Thanks for lunch.

0:35:030:35:05

-De nada.

-All right!

0:35:050:35:07

Phoebe and Jane!

0:35:090:35:11

I told you!

0:35:110:35:14

Here!

0:35:120:35:14

Today!

0:35:140:35:16

We're going to go see your teacher.

0:35:160:35:19

She started it.

0:35:190:35:22

That was very rude.

0:35:200:35:22

Let's kick their butts.

0:35:230:35:25

Hey, Louis, you "Louis-er".

0:35:290:35:31

To ten.

0:35:310:35:33

I'm not in the mood to get my butt kicked to death.

0:35:330:35:36

Well, we got the new kid.

0:35:370:35:39

Are you crazy?

0:35:390:35:43

You can't pick him.

0:35:400:35:42

I can pick whoever I want.

0:35:420:35:45

Are you afraid to lose?

0:35:450:35:47

No. Pick whoever you want. We never lose.

0:35:470:35:50

Yeah, whoever you want. We never lose.

0:35:500:35:53

Hey, you! Big guy! You shoot hoops?

0:35:530:35:56

Me?

0:35:570:35:58

No, the 40-year-old kid behind you(!)

0:35:580:36:01

Yeah, you. You play ball?

0:36:010:36:04

Yeah.

0:36:040:36:06

With my dad.

0:36:060:36:08

Are you fried?

0:36:080:36:12

Nobody's gonna slam him.

0:36:090:36:12

All right, let's do it.

0:36:120:36:14

Losers take out, so you take out.

0:36:140:36:16

Yeah, you take out.

0:36:160:36:18

Come on, just one chip.

0:36:200:36:22

No!

0:36:220:36:24

Good game, man.

0:36:240:36:27

Gimme some room!

0:36:250:36:27

Wanna grab a burger after school some time?

0:36:270:36:30

Now, listen. All you gotta do is just stand by the hoop.

0:36:300:36:33

OK? And I'll feed you the ball like this.

0:36:330:36:36

Let's do this.

0:36:370:36:41

Kick their butts.

0:36:390:36:41

Now, stand under the hoop.

0:36:410:36:43

Get your hands up.

0:36:430:36:45

We got Godzilla on our team.

0:36:470:36:50

Block him.

0:36:500:36:52

I'll try.

0:36:500:36:52

Get him, Jack!

0:37:000:37:02

You said to stand here.

0:37:050:37:09

Move your feet.

0:37:070:37:09

OK, move my feet.

0:37:090:37:11

Pez?

0:37:110:37:14

Sure, thanks.

0:37:120:37:14

Move my feet, move my feet.

0:37:140:37:16

Jack, get him!

0:37:180:37:21

Clod.

0:37:220:37:24

Hel-lo!

0:37:220:37:24

Block him.

0:37:240:37:26

Jack, block him!

0:37:340:37:36

No!

0:37:400:37:41

Good work.

0:37:420:37:44

Give me the ball.

0:37:500:37:53

Losers take out.

0:37:510:37:53

Defence! Defence!

0:37:540:37:57

Defence! Defence! Defence!

0:37:570:37:59

In the hoop, Jack!

0:38:050:38:07

We're kicking some major butt! >

0:38:100:38:12

Gimme the ball!

0:38:120:38:15

Losers take out!

0:38:150:38:18

Losers take out!

0:38:180:38:20

Losers!

0:38:350:38:37

Unstoppable!

0:39:030:39:06

Everybody take out your notebooks. We have a new assignment.

0:39:300:39:34

And it's something I want you to put some serious thought into.

0:39:340:39:38

I would like you to write an essay...

0:39:390:39:42

EVERYONE GROANS

0:39:420:39:44

..on what you want to be when you grow up.

0:39:440:39:46

Include reasons for your choices,

0:39:460:39:48

and watch the spelling, punctuation and grammar, please.

0:39:480:39:52

You'll have till the end of the semester to finish it.

0:39:520:39:55

Write the date on the top of the page.

0:39:550:39:58

You, too, George. The date.

0:39:580:40:00

I wanna be a gynaecologist.

0:40:000:40:02

Then I want good reasons why.

0:40:020:40:04

You are the reason why, Miss Marquez.

0:40:040:40:06

I want you to think about this. It's a big part of your grade.

0:40:060:40:10

You could use one of the choices from the board.

0:40:160:40:19

We're going to have to change your name from Jack to Shaq.

0:40:280:40:31

Nice shooting. Way to go.

0:40:310:40:33

Please, people, don't leave this till the last minute.

0:40:340:40:38

Here's the new blueprints for the tree-house.

0:40:500:40:53

Hey, guys. It's finally Friday.

0:40:530:40:56

Who are we waiting for? Her name? Mrs Durante?

0:40:560:40:59

Problem is, we don't have any Playboys in the tree-house.

0:40:590:41:02

I hear George has a new girlfriend.

0:41:020:41:04

Guys, I gotta go. Tree-house in an hour.

0:41:040:41:07

She's late. We can't stay here all day.

0:41:070:41:09

We'll go back inside.

0:41:100:41:12

Hey.

0:41:120:41:14

Great game today.

0:41:140:41:17

Thanks. Thanks for picking me.

0:41:150:41:17

Now you gotta do me a favour.

0:41:170:41:19

What kind of favour?

0:41:190:41:22

Follow me.

0:41:200:41:22

Listen, my mother's coming here to meet the Principal today.

0:41:250:41:28

She wants to talk to him.

0:41:280:41:30

You're going to be the Principal.

0:41:300:41:32

What?

0:41:320:41:34

You gotta. Mom talks to Principal McGee, he'll tell her I've been bad.

0:41:360:41:40

Have you been bad?

0:41:400:41:42

I haven't done homework since the third grade.

0:41:420:41:45

Your dog must be pretty full.

0:41:450:41:47

Yeah, right.

0:41:470:41:49

Here she is. You gotta do it.

0:41:490:41:51

Louis, I can't be a principal.

0:41:510:41:53

Principal McGee's really old.

0:41:570:41:59

Louis!

0:41:590:42:01

Hi, honey.

0:42:010:42:03

Oh, sweetie, the Beef and Brew only gave me ten minutes off,

0:42:030:42:06

so I gotta hustle.

0:42:060:42:08

Hi, sweetie. Hello.

0:42:080:42:11

So, where's the Principal?

0:42:110:42:13

Um...

0:42:130:42:14

This is Principal Powell. He's new. Just came a couple of weeks ago.

0:42:140:42:18

I told him you were coming.

0:42:180:42:20

Hello, Mr Powell.

0:42:200:42:22

My name's Dolores. My friends call me Dee-Dee.

0:42:220:42:25

What happened to Principal McGee? I just phoned him.

0:42:250:42:29

I don't know.

0:42:290:42:31

Mr Powell?

0:42:310:42:33

He got diarrhoea.

0:42:370:42:39

Diarrhoea?

0:42:390:42:42

Yeah, he got diarrhoea.

0:42:400:42:42

And he...he spewed.

0:42:430:42:45

Threw up.

0:42:450:42:47

And he had the squirts. He had diarrhoea.

0:42:470:42:49

That's more than I needed to know.

0:42:490:42:51

He had to go to the hospital. Appendicitis.

0:42:510:42:54

Oh, my god! Appendicitis?

0:42:540:42:56

Oh, that's too bad.

0:42:560:42:58

Well, honey, I swiped you a chocolate mousse.

0:42:580:43:01

Go sit down and eat it while I talk to the Principal.

0:43:010:43:04

No, let me stay, Mom.

0:43:040:43:06

Sweetie, please don't bust my chops, OK?

0:43:060:43:09

Go sit down.

0:43:090:43:11

You see, that's what I'm talking about.

0:43:120:43:14

He doesn't listen. I don't know whether it's all kids, or just him.

0:43:140:43:18

Am I right?

0:43:180:43:22

What did you say?

0:43:190:43:22

Kids don't listen.

0:43:200:43:22

Don't listen, no.

0:43:220:43:24

Yeah, that's what I thought.

0:43:240:43:26

Of course, you could say the same thing about men.

0:43:260:43:29

Probably your wife does all the time.

0:43:290:43:32

Oh, no.

0:43:320:43:34

Aren't you married?

0:43:340:43:37

Married?

0:43:350:43:37

No, not married.

0:43:370:43:40

I'm divorced. That's another thing.

0:43:380:43:40

Ever since my husband left us, he's got such a chip on his shoulder.

0:43:400:43:45

Potato or corn?

0:43:450:43:47

Anyway, you know, he's starting to get interested in girls.

0:43:480:43:52

I found some dirty magazines under his bed.

0:43:520:43:55

What am I supposed to do about that?

0:43:550:43:57

I don't know what to do.

0:43:570:43:59

It's a tough age.

0:43:590:44:01

I know. I mean...

0:44:010:44:03

I remember. I mean, I'm remembering now.

0:44:030:44:05

It's a tough age.

0:44:050:44:07

Tough age.

0:44:070:44:10

So, tell me, how is he doing?

0:44:120:44:14

Because last September he was failing miserably.

0:44:140:44:17

Oh, er...

0:44:170:44:19

Louis's showing a lot of improvement.

0:44:190:44:22

He's on a roll, really.

0:44:220:44:24

Really?

0:44:240:44:27

Rolling.

0:44:250:44:27

A roll? Rolling along?

0:44:250:44:27

Really, really rolling along.

0:44:270:44:30

Wow!

0:44:280:44:30

And, er... I would say he's...

0:44:300:44:32

the smartest kid in the whole school.

0:44:330:44:36

If not maybe the smartest kid

0:44:360:44:38

I have ever met.

0:44:380:44:40

My god!

0:44:390:44:40

I can't believe it!

0:44:400:44:42

I'm finally getting a good report. That makes me so happy.

0:44:420:44:46

I can't believe you're telling me this.

0:44:460:44:49

Because, you know, this means that maybe he's happy,

0:44:490:44:52

and I made the right decision about moving out here.

0:44:520:44:55

Listen, you know,

0:44:560:44:58

if you wanna have lunch, or something,

0:44:580:45:01

we can talk about Louis, and just kinda shoot the breeze.

0:45:010:45:04

What do you think?

0:45:040:45:06

Got a problem?

0:45:080:45:10

It's bad for you.

0:45:100:45:13

Since when is being bad...

0:45:110:45:13

bad?

0:45:130:45:15

Oh, no!

0:45:150:45:17

Aw, here she goes!

0:45:170:45:19

SHE GIGGLES

0:45:190:45:21

So, um...what do you think? You wanna do lunch?

0:45:210:45:24

I get a discount at the Beef and Brew.

0:45:240:45:27

Well, my mom brings my lunch, usually. I mean, she makes it.

0:45:270:45:30

Honey, you've got to cut those apron strings.

0:45:300:45:33

Hi, sweetie.

0:45:330:45:35

Angel, Mr Powell has been telling me what a good boy you've been.

0:45:360:45:40

I told you.

0:45:400:45:43

I didn't believe you, but now I do.

0:45:410:45:43

Now, I'm going to give Mr Powell my number at work,

0:45:430:45:47

so that you can call me,

0:45:470:45:49

let me know how he's doing.

0:45:490:45:51

I can stay on top of things.

0:45:510:45:53

That's my number at work. You can get me there.

0:45:530:45:56

My mom said I shouldn't touch matches.

0:45:560:45:58

Oh, you live with your mother?

0:45:580:46:00

Well, yeah...at night.

0:46:000:46:04

To each his own.

0:46:020:46:04

Anyway, you can call me to talk about Louis,

0:46:040:46:07

or, you know...any old thing.

0:46:070:46:09

Oh, that's Memories. That's a club that I hang out at sometimes.

0:46:130:46:17

If I'm not at work, that's usually where I am.

0:46:170:46:20

It's a nice place for people our age to hang out,

0:46:200:46:23

have a little drink, take the edge off, you know.

0:46:230:46:26

Oh, I gotta go. I'm gonna get fired.

0:46:270:46:29

Love you. Nice meeting you, Mr Powell.

0:46:290:46:32

Oh, you've got a strong grip. You're a manly man.

0:46:320:46:35

All right, you got your key to the house?

0:46:350:46:37

Hmm.

0:46:370:46:41

I'll meet you at home. Love you.

0:46:380:46:41

Love you, too.

0:46:390:46:41

Bye!

0:46:430:46:44

How did I do?

0:47:010:47:03

You did great.

0:47:030:47:06

Yeah? Boy!

0:47:040:47:06

Hey, man, I owe you one.

0:47:080:47:10

Sorry about my mom. She's looking for love in all the wrong places.

0:47:100:47:15

Yeah, I know.

0:47:150:47:17

Maybe I'll see you over the weekend.

0:47:170:47:19

Cool.

0:47:200:47:22

Pal.

0:47:240:47:25

Thanks.

0:47:250:47:27

MOM!!

0:47:490:47:51

I'M HOME!!

0:47:510:47:53

Where are you?

0:47:570:47:59

Yeah, OK.

0:48:020:48:03

Phone call for you, Brian.

0:48:050:48:07

Yeah, just...OK. Yeah?

0:48:070:48:09

Can I talk to him? Can I talk to him?

0:48:090:48:11

I got your hair, Mom. Sorry.

0:48:110:48:13

Hey, Dad? Dad?

0:48:130:48:15

I got to play basketball today. They picked me.

0:48:150:48:18

Not just because I'm humongous. I'm real good.

0:48:180:48:21

I scored a thousand points.

0:48:210:48:23

No, it was only a hundred. Fourteen.

0:48:230:48:25

Each time I got the ball, I scored.

0:48:250:48:27

Just like this. Listen.

0:48:270:48:29

Dad, I met this really cool kid named Louis. Not "Lewis". Louis.

0:48:290:48:34

His mom gave me some matches. Those are the matches.

0:48:340:48:37

Slow down, buddy. Slow down.

0:48:370:48:41

Hey, Dad...

0:48:390:48:41

Louis has dirty magazines. What are dirty magazines?

0:48:410:48:44

I got to be Principal.

0:48:440:48:46

I got a lot of homework. I got an assignment. You know what?

0:48:460:48:50

Miss Marquez ate one of my red gummy bears.

0:48:500:48:52

And she said, "Way to go!" because of the basketball.

0:48:520:48:56

She said Shaq better watch his back.

0:48:560:48:58

She's what Grandpa calls a piece of work. What are you doing?

0:48:580:49:02

I'm just...

0:49:020:49:04

just shooting an ad lay-out.

0:49:040:49:06

Carrots. For the Carrot Board. Giant carrots.

0:49:060:49:09

Wow, that's pretty boring.

0:49:090:49:11

Listen, Dad, I gotta go.

0:49:120:49:14

Number one. OK?

0:49:140:49:16

See you. Yeah, listen, Dad.

0:49:160:49:18

Don't hug me any more in front of the guys, OK?

0:49:180:49:21

Yeah, you know, like... It's weird.

0:49:210:49:23

I'll take the matches in the bathroom,

0:49:230:49:26

so if I do number two, I'm ready.

0:49:260:49:28

OK, put your mom on.

0:49:280:49:30

Brian?

0:49:310:49:33

I can hear you. No, it's this cord.

0:49:330:49:35

You OK?

0:49:370:49:39

Honey!

0:49:400:49:41

Is he OK?

0:49:410:49:43

Yeah. He's so excited.

0:49:430:49:45

GROWLING

0:49:500:49:52

Hey, Jack's mother?

0:49:520:49:54

Hey, Jack?

0:49:540:49:56

SHRIEKING

0:49:560:49:58

Jack's mother?

0:50:060:50:08

Can Jack come out and play?

0:50:080:50:10

I'm Mrs Powell.

0:50:110:50:13

And you are?

0:50:130:50:16

Louis Durante.

0:50:140:50:16

WHIRRING

0:50:160:50:18

I know Jack from school.

0:50:180:50:20

I wondered if Jack wanted to come to a sleep-over we're having.

0:50:200:50:25

I mean, if he's allowed to, and stuff.

0:50:250:50:27

Well, I can check. We kinda had some other plans.

0:50:280:50:31

Hey, Jack...

0:50:310:50:33

Bye, Mom!

0:50:330:50:35

See ya!

0:50:350:50:37

Honey, be extra careful!

0:50:370:50:39

Uh-huh.

0:50:390:50:41

And don't stay up too late!

0:50:410:50:43

No.

0:50:430:50:44

So, how fast do you grow?

0:50:550:50:58

Four times as fast as you.

0:50:580:51:00

Like cat years?

0:51:000:51:03

Yeah, sort of.

0:51:010:51:03

Like, when I'm 20, I'll look really old.

0:51:030:51:06

Man, you hear the first 20 are the best ones, anyway.

0:51:060:51:09

My mom says it's all downhill after that.

0:51:090:51:11

Yeah?

0:51:110:51:12

Like this?

0:51:120:51:14

Like this.

0:51:150:51:17

Did you guys build this yourself?

0:51:200:51:24

Yeah. Cool, huh?

0:51:220:51:24

You must have started this in pre-school.

0:51:240:51:26

I'll introduce you to the guys.

0:51:260:51:28

Is this safe?

0:51:280:51:31

Yeah, it's safe.

0:51:290:51:31

CREAKING

0:51:310:51:33

Don't sweat it. Go along with whatever I say.

0:51:330:51:36

Do you think they'll like me?

0:51:360:51:41

Hey, tight with me, tight with them.

0:51:380:51:41

It's a purple one.

0:51:430:51:46

Hey, Louis.

0:51:460:51:49

Hey.

0:51:490:51:50

I brought Jack. He's down there.

0:51:500:51:53

You brought the freak?

0:51:530:51:55

He's not a freak!

0:51:550:51:58

You said he was a freak.

0:51:560:51:58

I said wrong. Get over it. He's cool.

0:51:580:52:01

He knows how to shoot hoops.

0:52:010:52:03

And he did me a favour today. Here, check this out.

0:52:030:52:06

Look what he picked up on the way over.

0:52:080:52:11

He bought that?

0:52:120:52:15

Ah!

0:52:140:52:15

Walked right into the store,

0:52:150:52:17

picked it up, no fear or nothing.

0:52:170:52:19

My man is the man.

0:52:190:52:21

That is way cool. I wish I was a freak.

0:52:210:52:24

Hey, lay off the freak stuff, right?

0:52:240:52:27

Jack's cool.

0:52:270:52:29

We gotta let him kick in with us.

0:52:290:52:31

If he walks,

0:52:310:52:33

Penthouse walks.

0:52:330:52:35

OK, he can hang.

0:52:350:52:36

But if he weirds out, or anything, he's history. OK?

0:52:360:52:40

Wait.

0:52:400:52:42

The maximum weight up here is 150 pounds. It'll never hold.

0:52:420:52:46

Eddie - two words. Pent, house.

0:52:460:52:50

He's coming up.

0:52:480:52:50

CREAKING

0:52:560:52:58

Guys, this is Jack.

0:53:020:53:04

CREAKING

0:53:070:53:09

Man, I got a bad hip!

0:53:110:53:15

Sorry.

0:53:130:53:15

Watch the TV. Come on, Jack.

0:53:150:53:17

Watch out, OK?

0:53:180:53:20

Take it easy.

0:53:210:53:23

Don't choke me.

0:53:230:53:25

Watch it!

0:53:240:53:25

Sit down.

0:53:270:53:31

Sit down, already.

0:53:290:53:31

Jack, so you bought that magazine?

0:53:320:53:36

Yeah.

0:53:340:53:36

I buy them all the time.

0:53:360:53:38

What about Hustler? You get Hustler?

0:53:380:53:40

If you want it.

0:53:400:53:42

Swank?

0:53:420:53:45

Yeah.

0:53:430:53:45

That and, er...you know.

0:53:450:53:47

All the grown-up stuff that only grown-ups can read.

0:53:470:53:51

Cool. And they don't give you no trouble in buying them?

0:53:510:53:55

They don't ask for ID?

0:53:550:53:57

No. I just don't shave for a day, and then I look like I'm 50.

0:53:570:54:01

Hey, Jack, you mind if I look at the Penthouse?

0:54:020:54:05

Knock yourself out.

0:54:050:54:07

So you really shave, Jack?

0:54:070:54:11

Oh, yeah. I started when I was four.

0:54:080:54:11

Feel.

0:54:110:54:14

I'm looking forward to shaving.

0:54:120:54:14

What do you think? See anything?

0:54:140:54:16

Any whiskers around there?

0:54:160:54:18

Yeah, there's maybe one there.

0:54:190:54:21

Yeah, I think that's one.

0:54:210:54:23

If I were you, I'd grow a Fu Manchu thing, or a goat.

0:54:230:54:27

A goat?

0:54:270:54:30

A goatee.

0:54:280:54:30

Baaa-ad.

0:54:290:54:30

Baaa-ad, dude. Baaa-ad, man.

0:54:300:54:33

Oh, Eddie, check this out.

0:54:340:54:36

Excuse me.

0:54:360:54:39

You think our moms look like that?

0:54:370:54:39

No, only Penthouse girls look like that.

0:54:390:54:42

So, how do you like it?

0:54:420:54:44

Oh, it's great. What do you guys do here all night?

0:54:440:54:47

Anything we want.

0:54:470:54:51

Hey, Jack, ever get an erector?

0:54:510:54:53

Not yet. I'm hoping to get one for Christmas.

0:54:530:54:57

I wanna hear a manly rip. Show us what you're made of.

0:55:000:55:03

Wait, wait...

0:55:030:55:08

PARP

0:55:040:55:08

Just warming up. Feel it down below.

0:55:050:55:08

PHHHRRRT

0:55:080:55:11

-Oh!

-That's disgusting!

0:55:110:55:14

Almost blew a seam on my pants. Here comes another one!

0:55:150:55:19

Oh, can this one!

0:55:190:55:21

A real retro-rocket. Oh, yes!

0:55:210:55:23

Out, demon spirit!

0:55:230:55:25

PHHHRRRRRRT

0:55:250:55:27

PHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRT

0:55:280:55:30

Bingo!

0:55:300:55:32

Get it outta here.

0:55:320:55:34

The earth is rumbling. 7.5 on the Prickter scale.

0:55:340:55:37

Smell it.

0:55:380:55:40

That one's got good hang-time.

0:55:400:55:42

Oh, deadly!

0:55:430:55:45

Nerve gas!

0:55:450:55:48

Wooooooo! Fire down below!

0:55:480:55:53

He's revived.

0:55:500:55:53

Fire in the hole!

0:55:510:55:53

Here goes, here goes!

0:55:530:55:55

Flashlights off, everybody!

0:55:550:55:57

Karen? Karen?

0:56:010:56:03

Jack?

0:56:040:56:06

No, it's me.

0:56:070:56:09

We've got to be there in a half-hour.

0:56:110:56:14

Don't make fun.

0:56:150:56:17

I never would.

0:56:170:56:19

We usually come in here and have our little talks before bed-time.

0:56:220:56:26

You feel traded in for a bunch of spitting, swearing ten-year-olds?

0:56:260:56:30

You've still got me, you know.

0:56:300:56:32

It's just the way it is for everybody.

0:56:400:56:42

You give birth to 'em, you clothe 'em, you feed 'em.

0:56:420:56:45

Then one day you come home, they're teenagers.

0:56:450:56:48

They hate you and wouldn't talk to you if your hair was on fire.

0:56:480:56:52

I know.

0:56:530:56:55

It's just, it's the first night he's slept away from home.

0:56:550:56:59

Meaning,

0:57:000:57:02

we've never been alone in the house before.

0:57:020:57:05

Uh-oh.

0:57:050:57:07

I think it's nice being the only size 11 shoe under our bed.

0:57:070:57:11

I just hope he's OK.

0:57:180:57:21

I got another one in me!

0:57:210:57:23

We need more ketchup!

0:57:250:57:28

Maggot soup.

0:57:280:57:30

Jack, you better eat this.

0:57:320:57:35

What are you doing? Sardines!

0:57:390:57:41

No, I can't do it. Don't put that in, don't put that in.

0:57:430:57:47

Go! Go! Go!

0:57:470:57:50

Worms?

No, no...

0:57:590:58:01

Let me put my hand in it.

0:58:010:58:03

Watch out! He's gonna spew!

0:58:210:58:23

I'm warning you.

0:58:240:58:26

Wow, not bad.

0:58:290:58:32

BURRRRP

0:58:300:58:32

Hey, Jack!

0:58:400:58:43

Hey, Louis!

0:58:410:58:43

Let us up. I want to see what it's like up there.

0:58:430:58:46

Will you hold on for one second?

0:58:460:58:48

We want to clean it up a little.

0:58:480:58:52

See? He's gonna let us up.

0:58:500:58:52

He's not.

0:58:520:58:54

He said it.

0:58:540:58:55

Boys do not clean up. "Clean it up a little."

0:58:550:58:58

He's lying.

0:58:580:59:00

Yeah, right(!) I bet you. Watch.

Penthouse.

0:59:310:59:33

OK, and a Penthouse.

0:59:340:59:36

"Jack, do you read me? Do you read me? Come in."

0:59:360:59:39

Ten-four. We have lift-off. I have the Penthouse.

0:59:390:59:42

Do you have a picture of the Pope?

0:59:420:59:44

Starts with P.

0:59:440:59:46

LAUGHTER

0:59:460:59:48

Hey, guys...I've brought a friend.

1:00:021:00:04

This is Mr Woodruff.

1:00:051:00:07

Are you ten, too?

1:00:081:00:10

Well, if you ask my wife...

1:00:121:00:14

No, I'm afraid I'm just a regular garden variety old fart.

1:00:141:00:18

I mean, this tree-house wasn't made for...

1:00:201:00:23

What?

1:00:231:00:25

It won't hold, you know.

1:00:251:00:27

CREAKING

1:00:291:00:31

Well, now... This place is a lot hipper than I thought.

1:00:321:00:36

No, it isn't.

1:00:371:00:39

So...

1:00:391:00:40

I hear you're a good tutor.

1:00:401:00:42

Well, I don't like to blow my own horn, but...

1:00:421:00:45

You know, twin cheeks, let one fly.

1:00:481:00:52

Do what?

1:00:501:00:52

You wanna fart in a can?

1:00:521:00:54

I'm afraid, boys, you wouldn't want that to happen.

1:00:541:00:57

Some of my parts are rotten.

1:00:571:00:59

Come on, you said you were a good "tooter".

1:00:591:01:02

I've been known to chase whole families away.

1:01:021:01:05

You mean you're better than Jack?

1:01:051:01:08

I taught Jack.

1:01:081:01:10

No, this is enough.

1:01:151:01:17

A little Tabasco coming in.

1:01:171:01:19

It tastes like chicken.

1:01:211:01:25

Did you eat this, Jack?

1:01:231:01:25

Everybody has to.

1:01:251:01:27

Did you eat it, really?

1:01:271:01:29

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

It's 8:15.

1:04:171:04:20

You're pushing it.

1:04:211:04:22

When I grow up, I want to get married when I'm 28.

1:04:311:04:34

If you get married before that,

1:04:361:04:38

statistics say you'll be divorced.

1:04:381:04:40

However, I feel if I wait till my late 20s,

1:04:401:04:43

I can fool statistics

1:04:431:04:45

and live happily ever after with my husband,

1:04:451:04:48

who will also be over 28.

1:04:481:04:50

1:05:001:05:02

Nothing.

1:05:021:05:05

Come on, let's go.

1:05:031:05:05

I've got to stay and ask Miss Marquez something.

1:05:051:05:08

You want me to stick around?

1:05:081:05:10

Yeah, but I'll see you downstairs.

1:05:101:05:14

Good luck.

1:05:121:05:14

You stud, you.

1:05:141:05:17

Bye-bye. I'll see you tomorrow.

1:05:211:05:23

Jack, you're still here.

1:05:291:05:31

Jack, do you feel OK?

1:05:341:05:36

Is everything all right?

1:05:361:05:38

-Hm-mm.

-OK.

1:05:381:05:41

I know you like them.

1:05:541:05:56

I saved all the red gummy bears.

1:05:561:05:58

Took a long time to get a whole bag.

1:05:581:06:00

This is very sweet of you, Jack. Thank you.

1:06:021:06:05

So I'm a nice guy, huh?

1:06:051:06:07

You're a very nice young man, yes.

1:06:081:06:11

Miss Marquez...

1:06:131:06:15

I was thinking that maybe if you didn't have anything to do...

1:06:151:06:19

that you might want to go to the dance with me.

1:06:191:06:22

I would be really, really fun.

1:06:231:06:25

Oh, Jackie...

1:06:251:06:27

So, you wanna go? My mom will drive us.

1:06:291:06:32

Jack, you don't wanna go with me. I'm an old lady.

1:06:331:06:36

But that's why. That's why I want to go with you.

1:06:361:06:39

I can't go with the girls my age,

1:06:391:06:41

because I look so much older than them.

1:06:411:06:44

You look just like me.

1:06:441:06:46

Oh, Jackie...

1:06:491:06:52

You are still a very young man.

1:06:521:06:55

Up here.

1:06:551:06:57

I...I know...

1:07:001:07:02

I look closer to your age than the girls in class. You're right.

1:07:021:07:06

So what time should my mom and I pick you up?

1:07:061:07:08

Jack...

1:07:141:07:16

you are my student,

1:07:161:07:18

and I'm your teacher.

1:07:181:07:20

And teachers and students don't go to dances together.

1:07:201:07:24

Do you understand that?

1:07:241:07:26

Please?

1:07:261:07:28

No.

1:07:311:07:32

I'm sorry, honey.

1:07:331:07:35

It just wouldn't be right.

1:07:351:07:38

Do you understand?

1:07:391:07:41

Oh, Jackie, don't.

1:07:411:07:44

Oh, Jack...

1:07:451:07:49

I'm OK.

1:07:471:07:49

Jack...Jack, wait.

1:07:491:07:51

Jack, come back! Let's talk!

1:07:511:07:55

I don't want to talk!

1:07:531:07:55

Jack, it has nothing to do with you.

1:07:551:07:57

Jack?

1:08:131:08:15

It hurts.

1:08:141:08:15

Somebody help us! Somebody help!

1:08:151:08:18

Something's wrong.

1:08:181:08:21

Hold on.

1:08:191:08:21

Somebody help! Somebody help!

1:08:211:08:23

Miss Marquez! Jack's hurt!

1:08:241:08:26

Nurse, which way is Intensive Care?

1:08:291:08:32

Down the hall, first left, up the stairs.

1:08:321:08:35

I think what happened here

1:08:371:08:39

is the result of severe strain.

1:08:391:08:42

So it wasn't a heart attack?

1:08:421:08:44

Well, not exactly.

1:08:451:08:47

This is a form of arteriosclerosis,

1:08:471:08:50

or angina.

1:08:501:08:52

But Jack's situation is unique.

1:08:521:08:55

That's your heart.

1:08:551:08:59

Is it OK?

1:08:571:08:59

Uh-huh. Wait for your parents here. They'll be a few more minutes.

1:08:591:09:03

Can I have a sucker?

1:09:051:09:07

His internal clock is running out.

1:09:071:09:09

The physical signs of ageing

1:09:111:09:14

are going to occur more quickly.

1:09:141:09:16

His body is working overtime.

1:09:161:09:18

Little things that we take for granted

1:09:181:09:20

are going to affect him truly.

1:09:201:09:22

Hey...

1:09:491:09:51

Go on.

1:09:531:09:55

Hey.

1:09:551:09:57

How do you feel, Jackie?

1:10:171:10:19

I'm OK.

1:10:191:10:21

Louis just called for you. He said he hopes you feel better.

1:10:231:10:27

I told him you'd call him back tomorrow.

1:10:271:10:29

You need your rest.

1:10:301:10:34

Why do I need rest? I feel fine.

1:10:321:10:34

Here.

1:10:371:10:39

What's that?

1:10:391:10:42

It's for you.

1:10:401:10:42

A surprise?

1:10:421:10:44

Thanks.

1:10:471:10:49

Honey...

1:10:511:10:53

We don't ever want anything like this to happen again.

1:10:581:11:02

So we're gonna go back to the way it was before you started school.

1:11:021:11:06

No.

1:11:091:11:10

Remember all the fun we had?

1:11:121:11:15

No.

1:11:131:11:15

No!

1:11:151:11:17

NO!! NO!!

1:11:171:11:19

It wasn't fun!

1:11:201:11:22

Jack, it's... It's the only way.

1:11:241:11:27

What about my friends?

1:11:271:11:29

What about Louis and George and John-John?

1:11:291:11:31

Oh, honey, they'll come and they'll visit with you.

1:11:311:11:35

Mr Woodruff will come.

1:11:351:11:37

I want to be with my friends.

1:11:381:11:40

I want to be outside.

1:11:401:11:42

Honey, please don't do that.

1:11:421:11:44

Please, Mom.

1:11:441:11:46

I'm not being mean.

1:11:441:11:46

Mom, come on.

1:11:461:11:50

Hey, remember.

1:11:481:11:50

# Button up your overcoat When the wind blows free

1:11:501:11:54

# Take good care of yourself You belong to me. #

1:11:541:11:57

No, I don't!

1:11:571:11:59

Dad!

1:12:031:12:05

Dad!

1:12:101:12:12

Dad...

1:12:131:12:15

Please don't make me stay home.

1:12:171:12:20

I want to go back to school.

1:12:201:12:22

Please let me go back.

1:12:221:12:24

Don't make me be alone.

1:12:251:12:27

Please, Dad.

1:12:271:12:30

OK, OK, OK.

1:12:281:12:30

Please. Please.

1:12:301:12:32

Please.

1:12:321:12:34

WEEPING

1:12:341:12:36

Jackie...

1:12:361:12:38

My boy. My little boy.

1:12:381:12:40

Jackie...

1:12:411:12:43

Oh, please.

1:12:461:12:48

I'm just saying that we can't be afraid.

1:13:011:13:03

Afraid that he'll fall down.

1:13:031:13:05

Afraid that he'll hurt himself.

1:13:061:13:08

Or another kid.

1:13:091:13:11

Afraid...

1:13:121:13:14

to have another baby.

1:13:141:13:16

Brian, you know we can't do that.

1:13:161:13:19

No, I don't know that.

1:13:191:13:21

You know another baby might be like...

1:13:211:13:23

I don't know anything of the sort.

1:13:231:13:25

The doctors never told us that.

1:13:251:13:27

Hon, ten years ago,

1:13:271:13:29

when we had Jack,

1:13:291:13:31

we thought he was gonna be the first of three, four.

1:13:311:13:34

It's not the time to talk about it.

1:13:341:13:37

Sooner or later, we have to talk about it.

1:13:371:13:39

SIRENS IN DISTANCE

1:13:391:13:41

Nice set of wheels you got there, boy(!)

1:13:451:13:48

RETCHING

1:13:481:13:50

Whoa! OK?

1:13:501:13:52

You OK?

1:13:521:13:54

Here, have another hit off this. That'll help.

1:13:571:14:00

Check your bike, buddy?

1:14:021:14:04

SOUL MUSIC

1:14:051:14:07

So he starts this minimalist joke. You heard of that?

1:14:101:14:14

It's supposed to be funny.

1:14:141:14:16

Here's one.

1:14:161:14:18

Knock.

1:14:181:14:19

This is the joke. Knock. That's it.

1:14:191:14:22

This guy comes in here, he asks for Q-Tips.

1:14:221:14:25

We can't even give him aspirin.

1:14:251:14:28

No kidding. He gets mad at me because I don't have Q-Tips.

1:14:281:14:31

This is no drugstore. What?

1:14:311:14:34

Cool.

1:14:351:14:37

What? What do you want?

1:14:471:14:50

I'll have a...

1:14:521:14:54

Shirley Temple, with extra marciano cherries.

1:14:541:14:57

Maraschino.

1:14:581:15:00

That's what I said. Maraschino.

1:15:001:15:02

Get him a Madonna. A Madonna's a Shirley Temple without the cherry.

1:15:051:15:09

Bring him one of these, will you?

1:15:121:15:14

I'm Paulie. How are you doing?

1:15:141:15:16

OK. My name's Jack.

1:15:171:15:20

To Jack.

1:15:201:15:22

There you go, buddy.

1:15:251:15:28

To Paulie.

1:15:261:15:28

Here's looking at you, kid.

1:15:281:15:31

I'm no kid!

1:15:291:15:31

All right.

1:15:311:15:33

You like that? Gets the bugs out of your nose.

1:15:371:15:41

DRUNKEN GIGGLING

1:15:411:15:43

So she says to me, "I wanna spank you now."

1:15:431:15:46

Oh, no!

1:15:461:15:49

Spank me!

1:15:471:15:49

You must have been a bad boy.

1:15:491:15:51

Oh, yeah. Paulie was bad.

1:15:511:15:53

Bad? Oh, wow! What did you do?

1:15:531:15:55

Well, you know, this led to that,

1:15:571:15:59

and I...I ended up going limp.

1:15:591:16:02

You hurt your leg?

1:16:021:16:04

Yeah. I...I couldn't get it started.

1:16:041:16:07

Stuck there in my birthday suit, limp as a wet noodle.

1:16:071:16:10

It was your birthday?

1:16:101:16:14

Humiliated beyond belief, beyond repair.

1:16:111:16:14

That ever happen to you?

1:16:161:16:18

Lots.

1:16:181:16:21

Oh, Christ.

1:16:191:16:21

Oh, man. Now, that is a pity.

1:16:211:16:23

Well, what can I tell you, man?

1:16:241:16:26

You a married man, Jack?

1:16:261:16:28

Not yet. You're a lucky man. Don't give that up.

1:16:291:16:33

Yeah, mine...

1:16:351:16:37

Mine threw me out when she found out about my little escapades.

1:16:371:16:41

She wanted to take me back, but I said no.

1:16:411:16:44

I said no, because it's time to make a change.

1:16:441:16:47

That's what it's about, isn't it? It's all about change.

1:16:481:16:52

God.

1:16:531:16:55

I'll tell you,

1:16:551:16:57

it is God's cruel trick, Jack.

1:16:571:16:59

First you start losing your hair.

1:17:001:17:02

Then it starts growing on your back, like that.

1:17:021:17:05

Out of your nose. Look.

1:17:051:17:07

And your ears.

1:17:071:17:09

Yeah. What's that all about?

1:17:091:17:11

Eyebrows start growing all out of whack.

1:17:111:17:14

Next thing you know, you're like some bald gorilla.

1:17:141:17:17

Some kind of freak.

1:17:171:17:19

Then you're pushing up the daisies in some depressing cemetery.

1:17:191:17:25

Now, there is a sad story for you.

1:17:331:17:36

I know her.

1:17:361:17:40

You do? Husband ran out on her and the kids.

1:17:371:17:40

Kid.

1:17:401:17:42

Haven't seen him since,

1:17:401:17:42

I guess.

1:17:421:17:44

You could crack walnuts on her ass.

1:17:461:17:48

Principal Powell!

1:18:031:18:05

I'm so surprised to see you here!

1:18:061:18:10

Oh, what a nice surprise!

1:18:101:18:12

I can't believe it.

1:18:121:18:14

Nice to see you. It's nice to see someone I know.

1:18:141:18:18

Well, that's a nice thing to say.

1:18:191:18:22

How are you doing?

1:18:221:18:24

I can't believe you're here.

1:18:241:18:27

Me, too.

1:18:251:18:27

Believe me, that wasn't the first match-book I ever passed out.

1:18:271:18:32

That looks like fun.

1:18:341:18:36

You wanna go dance?

1:18:361:18:38

OK.

1:18:381:18:40

Oh.

1:18:421:18:44

Mmm, so gallant.

1:18:441:18:46

You man, you.

1:18:461:18:48

SMOOCHY MUSIC

1:18:501:18:52

I like you.

1:19:061:19:08

You're so different from a lot of the men I know.

1:19:081:19:12

And you know who else likes you?

1:19:121:19:14

My Louis.

1:19:151:19:17

He's a great judge of character.

1:19:171:19:19

I don't know where he gets it from.

1:19:191:19:22

He hates everybody that I usually go for.

1:19:241:19:27

I like a burly guy.

1:19:291:19:31

Uh-oh, honey.

1:19:311:19:33

I got a good feeling about you, mister.

1:19:361:19:39

What's the matter?

1:19:561:20:00

I gotta go.

1:19:581:20:00

Why?

1:20:001:20:01

You're Louis's mom. I gotta go.

1:20:011:20:03

That's what makes it so perfect, honey.

1:20:031:20:06

I'm Louis's mom,

1:20:061:20:08

and you're Louis's principal.

1:20:081:20:10

Hey, watch it! Oh, you!

1:20:151:20:17

The second time tonight. You stupid?

1:20:171:20:19

Where are you going, man?

1:20:211:20:23

I want an apology.

1:20:231:20:25

Sorry.

1:20:251:20:29

No, that's not good enough.

1:20:261:20:29

"Sorry."

1:20:291:20:32

I said I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

1:20:301:20:32

You totally hyper? Too much sugar?

1:20:321:20:34

You think you're smart?

1:20:341:20:41

Yeah, except in Social Studies.

1:20:361:20:41

Would you like to study my fist?

1:20:381:20:41

Hey, hey, hey! Leave him alone!

1:20:411:20:43

Come on, Mr Powell.

1:20:431:20:48

You gonna let your girlfriend stand up for you?

1:20:441:20:48

Come on. Let's go.

1:20:481:20:51

You've got the Zackly disease.

1:20:491:20:51

What's that?

1:20:511:20:53

Your mouth smells zackly like your butt!

1:20:531:20:56

Did you get that from Louis? He says that.

1:20:561:20:58

You're a loser!

1:20:581:21:01

Yeah?

1:20:591:21:01

Losers say what?

1:21:011:21:04

What?

1:21:011:21:04

Loser!

1:21:021:21:04

Rubber glue, sticks to you!

1:21:041:21:07

What are you doing?

1:21:051:21:07

I'm a loser, but you're a son-of-a-bitch!

1:21:071:21:10

I can't believe you said that! You cussed! You said the B-word!

1:21:101:21:14

You're gonna get in so much trouble.

1:21:141:21:17

Trouble?

1:21:181:21:20

Trouble!

1:21:211:21:23

You OK?

1:21:301:21:32

Paulie!

1:21:341:21:36

Paulie!

1:21:361:21:39

Don't worry. Happens all the time.

1:21:371:21:39

Mr Powell, put your feet on the marks on the floor.

1:21:431:21:46

Now look up at the camera. Hold the plaque chin-high.

1:21:461:21:49

Now turn to your right.

1:21:521:21:54

Jack Powell?

1:21:581:22:00

Your bail's posted, pal.

1:22:011:22:03

Come on.

1:22:061:22:08

Get your stuff here, you can go.

1:22:171:22:19

You've got a library card,

1:22:201:22:22

a pocket knife,

1:22:221:22:24

Spider Man watch,

1:22:241:22:26

Pez dispenser.

1:22:261:22:29

Where's my Pog?

1:22:271:22:29

It was a slammer.

1:22:291:22:31

Is my mom here?

1:22:361:22:39

Oh, Mr Powell. Are you OK?

1:22:391:22:42

Hey, buddy boy! Take care!

1:22:441:22:46

They were shocked to hear they'd arrested the Principal.

1:22:461:22:50

Sorry about tonight.

1:23:041:23:06

That's OK.

1:23:061:23:08

You've got eyes just like...

1:23:141:23:16

Louis.

1:23:161:23:18

So young-looking.

1:23:181:23:20

That's the strangest thing.

1:23:201:23:23

What kind of eye cream do you use?

1:23:251:23:27

Can I have about a quart?

1:23:271:23:29

Well...

1:23:321:23:34

It's been a long night.

1:23:341:23:36

Gonna let you out of my chariot.

1:23:361:23:38

Better be going.

1:23:391:23:41

Thanks for taking me home.

1:23:411:23:43

Good night, Mr Powell.

1:23:531:23:55

Hey, Mr Woodruff.

1:24:581:25:00

How are you doing, fellas?

1:25:001:25:02

How the tree-house coming?

1:25:051:25:07

It looks like my room.

1:25:071:25:09

We're just hanging, trying to catch Jack.

1:25:091:25:12

Jack's still a little tired, boys, and he's sleeping.

1:25:121:25:15

I'll tell him you came by.

1:25:151:25:19

Gimme some skin, boys.

1:25:161:25:19

I'll take this up to Jack for you.

1:25:201:25:22

-ALL:

-Bye, Mr Woodruff. Bye, Mrs Powell.

1:25:221:25:25

Thank you for coming.

1:25:271:25:29

He's been in his room for two and a half weeks.

1:25:301:25:33

Maybe you could talk to him.

1:25:331:25:36

He's very confused.

1:25:361:25:38

I think he's realised how fragile his life is.

1:25:381:25:40

You know, maybe I'm not the answer.

1:25:421:25:44

Maybe he needs to go back to school.

1:25:441:25:47

He can't go back to school.

1:25:471:25:49

That's what started this in the first place.

1:25:491:25:52

We can't risk his health again.

1:25:521:25:54

Jack, Mr Woodruff's here to see you!

1:25:541:25:57

Here, give me this.

1:26:011:26:03

Jack, honey?

1:26:061:26:08

Mr Woodruff's here to see you.

1:26:081:26:10

Why don't you want me to teach you anymore?

1:26:311:26:33

Why do I have to learn stuff I'm never going to use?

1:26:351:26:39

That isn't why I'm teaching you.

1:26:401:26:42

I'm teaching you so you'll learn something new, interesting.

1:26:421:26:46

I don't care anymore.

1:26:471:26:49

Is he sick?

1:26:571:26:59

No, I don't think so.

1:26:591:27:01

Then what's wrong with him?

1:27:011:27:03

He's ageing.

1:27:031:27:05

Is he coming back?

1:27:051:27:07

I wish he'd come back.

1:27:091:27:11

So do I.

1:27:111:27:14

Yeah, so do I.

1:27:121:27:14

Hey, we all do.

1:27:141:27:16

What are you doing?

1:27:271:27:29

Going home.

1:27:291:27:31

You'll be back tomorrow?

1:27:311:27:33

This is yours.

1:27:341:27:37

You can't quit.

1:27:351:27:37

I don't consider myself quitting.

1:27:371:27:39

I consider myself...

1:27:391:27:41

losing a student.

1:27:411:27:43

You know why I like to teach children, Jack?

1:27:431:27:46

So I don't get so...

1:27:461:27:48

wrapped up in being an adult.

1:27:481:27:50

So I can remember that there are other things...

1:27:501:27:53

..that are important in life.

1:27:541:27:57

Like riding a bike.

1:27:571:27:59

Playing in a tree-house.

1:28:001:28:02

Splashing in water

1:28:021:28:04

with your good shoes on.

1:28:041:28:06

And you, my friend,

1:28:101:28:12

were my...most special student.

1:28:121:28:15

And until recently,

1:28:151:28:17

you were everything I ever wanted in a student.

1:28:171:28:20

You were a shooting star

1:28:201:28:22

amongst ordinary stars.

1:28:221:28:24

Have you ever seen a shooting star, Jack?

1:28:241:28:27

No.

1:28:271:28:29

It's wonderful. It passes quickly.

1:28:301:28:33

But while it's here, it just lights up the whole sky.

1:28:331:28:36

It's the most beautiful thing you'd ever want to see.

1:28:361:28:39

So beautiful that the other stars...

1:28:391:28:42

stop,

1:28:421:28:45

and watch.

1:28:451:28:47

You almost never see one.

1:28:501:28:53

Why?

1:28:511:28:53

Because they're very rare. Quite rare.

1:28:531:28:56

But I saw one.

1:28:561:28:59

I did.

1:28:591:29:02

I just want to be a regular star.

1:29:091:29:11

Jack...

1:29:151:29:17

you'll never be regular.

1:29:171:29:19

You're spectacular.

1:29:191:29:21

Mr Woodruff?

1:29:301:29:33

Eureka.

1:30:051:30:07

Yo, Mrs Powell!

1:30:111:30:13

Hey, Mrs Powell!

1:30:131:30:15

Hey, Jack's mother!

1:30:161:30:18

Jack's mother!

1:30:181:30:20

Mrs Powell?

1:30:201:30:22

Hey, can Jack come out and play?

1:30:331:30:35

I'm sorry, Louis. He can't.

1:30:361:30:39

But why don't you try again in a couple of days?

1:30:391:30:42

Hey, Jack's mother!

1:30:461:30:48

Mrs Powell!

1:30:491:30:51

Mrs Powell!

1:30:511:30:53

Can Jack come out and play?

1:30:551:30:57

He doesn't want to.

1:30:591:31:01

-BOTH:

-Hey, Jack's mother!

1:31:161:31:19

Jack's mother!

1:31:191:31:21

Jack's mother!

1:31:231:31:25

Can Jack come out and play?

1:31:251:31:27

Girls, I'm sorry.

1:31:271:31:29

He doesn't want to.

1:31:291:31:31

Can we see him so we'll know he's alive?

1:31:311:31:34

I told you!

1:31:411:31:44

No, I told you!

1:31:421:31:44

Hey, Jack's mother!

1:31:591:32:03

I know, I know.

1:32:011:32:03

Can Jack come out and play?

1:32:031:32:06

Yeah, can he?

1:32:041:32:06

You're not going to go away, are you?

1:32:061:32:08

Hey, Jack's mother!

1:32:081:32:10

Yo, Jack!

1:32:101:32:12

Come on out, man! Come on out!

1:32:121:32:15

Kids, I'm sorry.

1:32:151:32:17

He just doesn't want to come out today.

1:32:171:32:20

Try again some other time.

1:32:211:32:23

KIDS ALL TALK

1:32:251:32:27

ALL SHOUT FOR JACK

1:32:311:32:33

-EVERYONE:

-Can Jack come out to play?

1:33:181:33:21

Mom? Dad?

1:34:291:34:31

I'm going to school.

1:34:321:34:34

Mom, please say it's OK.

1:34:381:34:41

Well, you better hurry up.

1:34:421:34:44

You don't want to be late.

1:34:441:34:47

Thanks.

1:34:491:34:51

Peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

1:34:531:34:55

I've got to turn in my assignment.

1:34:551:34:57

When I grow up, I want to put on about 250 pounds

1:34:571:35:00

and be a rapper like Heavy D,

1:35:001:35:02

except Heavy E.

1:35:021:35:04

I want to go to China,

1:35:041:35:06

and film a music video called "Chubby".

1:35:061:35:09

Then I might want to be a part-time boxer,

1:35:141:35:17

or a kickboxer, so I can kick some butt.

1:35:171:35:20

Louis?

1:35:201:35:22

I want to be just like my best friend when I grow up.

1:35:261:35:29

He's only ten, but he looks much older.

1:35:301:35:33

He's like the perfect grown-up,

1:35:351:35:37

because on the inside,

1:35:371:35:39

he's still just a kid.

1:35:391:35:41

He's not afraid to learn things,

1:35:421:35:45

or try things,

1:35:451:35:47

or to meet new people,

1:35:471:35:49

the way most grown-ups are.

1:35:491:35:51

It's like he's looking at everything for the first time.

1:35:511:35:55

Because he is.

1:35:551:35:57

Most grown-ups aren't like that.

1:35:571:35:59

Most grown-ups just want to...

1:36:001:36:02

go to work and make money,

1:36:021:36:04

and show off to the neighbours.

1:36:041:36:06

And more than anything, he knows how to be a great friend...

1:36:061:36:11

more than most people.

1:36:111:36:14

It's Jack!

1:36:121:36:14

Jack! It's Jack!

1:36:141:36:16

Jack!

1:36:171:36:19

Good to have you back.

1:36:191:36:21

Sorry I'm late.

1:36:201:36:21

That's OK.

1:36:211:36:23

Jack.

1:36:231:36:25

Louis.

1:36:241:36:25

Your seat's waiting for you.

1:36:251:36:27

We were just in the middle of Louis's essay.

1:36:271:36:30

EVERYONE SAYS HELLO

1:36:301:36:32

Louis, you may continue.

1:36:401:36:42

More than anything,

1:36:441:36:46

he knows how to be a great friend.

1:36:461:36:48

More than most people who look like adults.

1:36:481:36:51

So I may not know what I wanna be when I grow up.

1:36:531:36:56

Right now, I really don't care.

1:36:561:36:58

But I do know who I want to be like.

1:36:591:37:01

I want to be like the giant.

1:37:021:37:04

The big guy.

1:37:061:37:08

My best friend.

1:37:081:37:10

Jack.

1:37:101:37:12

Thank you.

1:37:151:37:17

APPLAUSE

1:37:171:37:19

Very good, Louis.

1:37:231:37:25

That was wonderful, Louis.

1:37:251:37:28

Yeah, Louis, that was wonderful.

1:37:301:37:32

OK, class, let's begin our lesson today.

1:37:351:37:38

Are you OK, Jack?

1:37:461:37:48

LAUGHTER

1:37:481:37:50

All right, everybody. That's enough. Come on, settle down.

1:37:511:37:55

Louis! Louis, come here, sweetie.

1:38:021:38:04

Let me take a picture of you.

1:38:041:38:06

Louie, come on!

1:38:061:38:08

Smile. I'm still paying the damn orthodontist.

1:38:081:38:11

OK, take a picture.

1:38:111:38:14

Come on, Louie!

1:38:121:38:14

Right there. That's good.

1:38:141:38:16

Eddie! Oh, my god!

1:38:171:38:19

I'm fine.

1:38:191:38:22

Are you sure?

1:38:201:38:22

John-John!

1:38:221:38:25

George, what's up?

1:38:231:38:25

You always want to sit by Joanie.

1:38:301:38:33

No, I don't.

1:38:311:38:33

Stop!

1:38:331:38:37

You stop!

1:38:341:38:37

Puh-lease!

1:38:351:38:37

Please yourself.

1:38:371:38:40

OK, I will.

1:38:381:38:40

Do that.

1:38:391:38:40

I'll take her, Brian.

1:38:431:38:45

MUSIC: "LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY"

1:38:571:39:00

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm honoured to introduce our valedictorian,

1:39:261:39:30

Jack Charles Powell.

1:39:301:39:32

Thank you, Aristotle.

1:39:571:39:59

Sorry.

1:40:031:40:05

Yo, Jack! Go get 'em!

1:40:141:40:16

I got it, Eric.

1:40:181:40:20

I'm cool.

1:40:201:40:22

My speech.

1:40:231:40:25

I don't have very much time these days, so I'll make it quick.

1:40:271:40:31

Like my life.

1:40:311:40:33

You know, as we come to the end of this phase of our life,

1:40:361:40:40

we find ourselves...

1:40:401:40:42

trying to remember the good times...

1:40:421:40:45

and trying to forget the bad times.

1:40:451:40:48

And we find ourselves thinking about the future.

1:40:491:40:52

We start to worry,

1:40:521:40:55

thinking, "What am I going to do?

1:40:551:40:58

"Where am I going to be in ten years?"

1:40:581:41:01

But I say to you,

1:41:031:41:05

hey...

1:41:051:41:07

look at me.

1:41:071:41:09

Please, don't worry so much.

1:41:101:41:12

Because, in the end,

1:41:121:41:14

none of us have very long on this earth.

1:41:141:41:17

Life is fleeting.

1:41:201:41:22

And if you're ever distressed...

1:41:251:41:27

cast your eyes to the summer sky,

1:41:301:41:33

when the stars are strung across the velvety night.

1:41:331:41:37

And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness,

1:41:381:41:41

turning night into day...

1:41:411:41:43

make a wish...

1:41:451:41:47

and think of me.

1:41:491:41:51

Make your life...

1:41:531:41:55

spectacular.

1:41:551:41:57

I know I did.

1:42:001:42:02

I made it, Mom.

1:42:061:42:08

I'm a grown-up.

1:42:101:42:12

Thank you.

1:42:141:42:16

APPLAUSE

1:42:161:42:19

CHEERING

1:42:241:42:26

Jackie, let's go!

1:42:351:42:37

Mom, it's the guys. I gotta go.

1:42:371:42:40

See you.

1:42:401:42:44

Not too late.

1:42:411:42:44

Yeah, next Tuesday(!)

1:42:421:42:44

How sweet it is! Mom!

1:42:471:42:49

Let's go!

1:42:521:42:54

All right?

1:42:551:42:57

There you go.

1:42:571:43:00

See you, Mom!
