[Everybody but Jude is around the table with piles of books by them.]
Caitlin: "That's it. I'll never get through this in four days! I'm gonna fail."
Jen: "You're not going to fail. You can do it! Now let's try chapter seven."
Nikki: "Uh, back it up there, teacher's pet. I'm still working on chapter five."
Jonesy: "Yeah, slow down."
Jen: "I told you guys you should have started sooner."
[They look at Jason and Joanie, who are studying while making out.]
Nikki: "Aw, look at them. No one escapes the dreaded midterms." [Darth and Julie run into each other.]
Jonesy: "Ooh! That's gonna leave a mark."
Jude: [skating up] "Woohoohoo! What's happening?"
Jen: "Nothing. Just cramming for exams."
Jude: "Major crammage. I hear ya. Got my history book here and everything."
Caitlin: "Guys, I have a biology question. Do you think that new guy in our class likes me likes me, or just, you know, likes me?"
Jen: "Caitlin, focus."
Caitlin: "I'm trying, but I don't think I can concentrate until I know!"
Jude: "So just go up to him and ask him."
Caitlin: "No way! What if he says no?"
Jen: [rolling her eyes] "Okay. Why don't you ask him for some help in bio? Tell him you need a study partner this weekend."
Caitlin: "Ooh, that's good."
Jen: "Okay, back to work."
Jonesy: "How are we supposed to memorize all of this?!? It's impossible!" [He slams his head on the table.]
Jen: "Uurgh! If you all just stick with my study program, we'll get through it."
Nikki: "Oh right, yeah, 'the program'."
Jen: "I'm just trying to help you guys get it together. You want to do well on these exams, don't you?"
[The gang murmur an unenthusiastic vote of consent, and the table quiets. Soon, though, Jude's foot starts tapping and he looks around wildly. He stands up suddenly.]
Jude: "Okay dudes, it's way too loud in here! I'm going to the library." [He skates off.]
Jen: "But this is supposed to be a study group!" [She slaps her forehead.]
Wyatt: "Pressure could be getting to him."
[As if to prove his point, a football player runs past, screaming.]
Football Player: "Uuuuggghhh!!! I think my head's going to explode! Help me! AAAAAHHH!!!"
[The football player crashes into something.]
Jonesy: "And midterm exams claim another victim."
The opening credits roll.
The title of this episode is
One Quiet Day
[The gang minus Caitlin are still studying around the table.]
Jonesy: "Well I give up. If I don't know it by now, I'm never going to know it."
Jen: "We still have three days, Jonesy."
Jonesy: "Fine! Slave driver. And while we're at it, I didn't appreciate the six A.M. wake-up call."
Jen: "Trust me, you need the study time."
Nikki: "Uh, I'm thinking of dropping all my science courses."
Jen: "But that could limit your future choices in college!"
Nikki: "Thanks, mom. Any other advice before the day even begins?"
Jen: "I'm just saying." [Wyatt takes a sip of his coffee.] "You know coffee's bad for you, right?"
Jude: [getting up] "Well, that was some good studying."
Jen: "Where are you going?"
Jude: "To uh–study."
Jen: "But we were all gonna quiz each other later."
Jude: "Sorry. I kinda promised this other study group that I'd let them pick my brain. Later."
Nikki: "I hope they have a small pick."
Jen: "I think something's up with Jude. He's not nearly stressed enough."
Nikki: "Yeah, better call the paramedics."
Jen: "No really. The whole student body is freaking, and he's all chilled out."
Wyatt: "Maybe he's ready for exams."
[The table, including Wyatt, bursts out laughing at this ludicrous suggestion.]
Jen: "Yeah right. Well, I'm gonna find out. No one is failing on my watch."
Jonesy: [fed up] "Okay! I think we need a break, and a change of venue!"
Nikki and Wyatt: "Totally."
[The three get up and walk off to find a new location.]
Jen: "But we haven't finished–fine."
[The study group has moved to Grind Me.]
Jen: "So the answer is...absolute zero?"
Nikki: "Yeah. How did you get that?"
Jen: "I have no idea."
[Caitlin walks past them, looking disheveled. She goes up to the counter.]
Caitlin: "Give me a milk! Chocolate."
Jonesy: "Whoa. You look terrible." [Caitlin chugs her milk.]
Caitlin: "I know. It's too horrible to talk about!"
Jen: "What happened?"
Caitlin: "Okay. You know how you said I should ask that guy if he wanted to study with me?"
Caitlin: "Well, last night I couldn't find his number, so I thought I'd just leave a note in his mailbox."
Caitlin: "But I chickened out like ten times and kept circling the block in my mom's car."
Jonesy: "That's not so bad. Kind of lame, but I've heard worse."
Caitlin: "It gets worse. This neighbor saw me and thought I was like, a robber or something, so they called the police and–I have a mug shot!" [She bursts into tears.]
[Jonesy and Wyatt laugh at this story.]
Jen: "Don't laugh, guys, it's not funny."
Nikki: "You're right." [cracking up] "No, you're wrong! It's pretty funny."
Wyatt: [laughter subsiding] "The cops let you off, though, right?"
Caitlin: [crying] "They cleared it all up after Jack ID'd me at the station. I'm a stalker. A big loser stalker." [thinking] "Maybe I should go find him and tell him how I really feel."
Jonesy: "Uh, I think you already did that when you stalked him." [He and Wyatt laugh. Two prepubescents walk past, skateboards under their arms.]
Boy with Cap: "Did you see Jude pull that sick McTwist? That dude rocks!"
Redhead Boy: "Yeah!"
Jen: "Wait a minute, didn't Jude say he was going to study?"
Wyatt: "So maybe he took a break."
Jen: "I think someone should talk to him."
Jonesy: "I'll do it! Anything to get out of studying math."
[Jude is working at Stick It. Jonesy and Wyatt walk up, books under their arms.]
Jonesy: "So, dude, wanna come by tonight? You know, crack a few books, order sick amounts of pizza, my treat."
Jude: "No can do, bro. Got my study group tonight."
Jonesy: "Oh. That's cool."
Wyatt: "Okay then. Have fun." [He and Jonesy leave the vicinity.]
Jonesy: [walking down the corridor with Wyatt] "This new study group of his must have hot chicks in it. We have to get in on this."
[The gang, minus Jude, are around the table.]
Jen: "This new study group of his must be really smart."
Caitlin: [sad] "Or he's just made some new friends that he likes better than us."
Wyatt: "Okay, maybe we should just give the guy some space."
Jen: "No way. C'mon, let's find them. Jonesy, you and Caitlin try the arcade."
Caitlin: "Why there?"
Jen: "It's a study group that wants to pick Jude's brain. Where did you think you'd find them?"
Jonesy: "Good point. You try the amusement park."
[The five have looked all around for Jude and met up again.]
Jen: "So, what did you find out?"
Jonesy: "He was there playing video games an hour ago."
Wyatt: "And he spent a couple hours at the skate park yesterday."
Caitlin: [despondent] "I knew it. He's totally ditched us."
Jen: "He can't do that! He was in our study group!"
Jonesy: "I still say it all comes down to a babe."
[Caitlin gasps and ducks behind a trashcan.]
Jen: "What are you doing?"
Caitlin: [whispering] "It's him! Jack! Police station guy!"
Jen: [whispering] "Oh. Go say hi to him."
Caitlin: [whispering] "Are you crazy? He hates my guts! He's gonna see you! Act natural!"
[Nikki, Wyatt, and Jonesy begin to act as falsely natural as possible.]
Caitlin: "Very funny! Cut it out!"
Jen: "Just be really friendly and act like it never happened."
Wyatt: "I don't think that's a good idea."
Jen: "Trust me. Go!"
[She shoves Caitlin out. Caitlin comes back a short while later, shoulders slumped.]
Jen: "So, everything cool now?"
Caitlin: [hiding behind the trashcan] "He said that if I don't stay away from him, his mom thinks he should get a restraining order." [She bursts into tears.]
Wyatt: [to himself] "Good advice, Jen."
Nikki: "Okay guys, anyone have any idea where Jude is?"
[A poster for a snowboarding movie is hung at the Gigantoplex.]
Jen: "Insane Snowboarders 3 just opened." [She gasps.] "There's Jude!"
[Jude is in line at the theater. A pretty girl in glasses comes up behind him.]
Jonesy: "I knew there'd be a hottie! What'd I tell you? Blam!"
Jen: "Okay, grab your disguises. We go in on three. On my mark, go!"
[The gang hide their faces behind portable potted plants and trashcans.]
Jonesy: "Okay, take it down a notch, sister."
Jen: [stopping] "Okay, are we gonna do this or not?"
Jonesy: "I don't know, captain! Why don't you tell us?" [Jude enters the multiplex.]
Caitlin: "Guys! He's getting away!"
[The gang drop their disguises and run into the theater.]
Caitlin: "There he is!"
Jude: [getting some popcorn] "Cool." [He turns around and finds the gang right behind him.]
Jude, Caitlin, Nikki, Jonesy, Wyatt, and Jen: "YYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!"
Jude: [recovering] "Hey guys. What's up?"
Jen: "Jude! What are you doing at the movies? Midterms are in three days!"
Jonesy: "Yeah! And who's the smoking hot girl in line?"
Nikki: "I think it's pretty obvious our little skater boy isn't in a study group."
Jude: "Oh yeah? Then why do I have this history book with me?"
[Jude holds it up proudly. A comic book falls out from inside.]
Jen: [shocked] "A comic book?!?"
Jude: "Okay. See, the thing is, I'm kinda flunking a class." [His friends stare back silently.] "Alright, a couple classes." [Silent stare.] "Okay, all of them."
Jonesy: "So then what are you doing at the movies?"
Jude: "I figured if I'm gonna fail anyway, might as well have fun doing it."
Jonesy: "Can't argue with that logic."
Wyatt: "Did you think of studying harder?"
Jude: "Yeah, but then I thought maybe I should just give my brain a rest and start fresh next year."
Caitlin: "Why didn't you tell us?"
Jude: "I guess I was embarrassed. I mean, what if I'm just not that smart."
Nikki: "Not that smart? Who was the one who found the class hamster in fifth grade after we'd all given up?"
Jonesy: "Yeah, and who figured out how many hot dogs the average guy could eat without puking?"
Wyatt: "And then videotaped it for a science project?"
Jude: [happy] "Me!"
Wyatt: "How much time have you spent studying this semester?"
Jude: "I dunno, maybe four hours?"
Nikki: "A week? That's not bad."
Jude: "Actually, I meant all together."
Nikki: "Oh. You realize that if you fail this year, you won't graduate with the rest of us, right?"
Jen: "If we help you get back on track, do you promise to study?"
Jude: "You guys'd do that for me?"
Caitlin: "Of course! We all have to graduate together or it won't be the same."
Jude: "Well, my imaginary study group already dumped me...okay, I'll do it."
Wyatt: [pointing to the skateboard] "We are going to have to take this."
Jude: "My board? No way, dude!"
Jen: "Yes. Just until your grades go up."
[Wyatt tries to take the board from Jude, but Jude holds it back. Jen grabs onto Wyatt and helps him pull. Soon enough, the other three join in.]
Wyatt: [through gritted teeth] "Let go, let go–"
[Jude lets go of the board, and the five collapse in a heap, victorious.]
Wyatt: "You just need better time management skills. We all have something we can work on. Jonesy's obsessed with girls."
Jonesy: [getting up] "True, but you never take chances. Ever."
Wyatt: "I do so!"
Jonesy: "Name one."
Wyatt: "Uh..." [He sighs, unable to find one. Caitlin gets up.]
Caitlin: "I go way too crazy at sales."
Nikki: "I could stop teasing the Clones."
[They look at Jen, who is brushing herself off. Jonesy clears his throat.]
Jen: "Okay, I'm not being conceited but, I can't really think of anything."
Caitlin: "Oh yeah? How about butting into everyone else's business and telling us what to do all the time?"
[Caitlin and Jen gasp simultaneously as they realize what just came out.]
Caitlin: "Did I just say that out loud?"
Caitlin: [trying to soften the blow] "Well...you're always giving everyone advice, and it's not always good."
Jen: "Uh, news flash, no I don't!"
Nikki: "Um, this just in? You totally do."
Jen: "Here's the weather: Nuh-uh!"
Nikki: "Hot off the press: Yuh-huh. Oh, and breaking news? You're bossy too."
Jen: "Pictures at eleven! Of you being wrong!"
Usher: "Live from the Gigantoplex, you're not the only people in line here!"
Jen: "Oh yeah? Well stay tuned, because you all SUCK!!!"
Jonesy: "Okay, if you're right, prove it. It's now 11:54. I bet you a dollar you can't not butt in from noon until closing."
Nikki: "Oh, I want a piece of this." [Wyatt digs into his pockets as well.]
Caitlin: "Me too!"
Wyatt: "I'm in."
Jen: "So I get five bucks if I don't give anyone advice for the rest of the day?"
Jen: "Oh it's on."
Jonesy: "Easy money."
[The gang are gathered around the table.]
Jen: "Okay. So we all know which subjects we're helping Jude with?"
Jonesy, Wyatt, Caitlin, and Nikki: "Yes."
Jonesy: "And you've got ten seconds until noon."
Jen: "Oh, and don't forget. No distractions until after exams."
Jen: "That means no Simu-Mall no skating and no girls!"
[Jonesy clicks a timer on his phone and closes it.]
Jonesy: "Are you finished?"
Jonesy: "Good! Then the bet officially begins now."
Jen: "Fine. Good luck, Jude!" [She pats Jude's head and walks away.]
Jonesy: [after she leaves] "And when we're not on Project Jude, I want all of your resources devoted to making Jen crack. Whoever gets her to lose takes the pot."
Nikki: "Right. We have six hours people." [She and Jonesy get up.]
Caitlin: [standing up] "Oh she's so going down."
Jonesy: [walking off] "Later dude."
Caitlin: "Good luck!"
[They walk away, leaving Jude and Wyatt to get to studying.]
Wyatt: [picking up a textbook] "Okay, let's see where you're at. X squared over Y squared equals?"
Jude: "How long do I have to go without my board?"
Wyatt: "Just until your finished midterms. Okay. X squared–"
Jude: "'Cause it's calling out to me, bro! It's saying, 'Duuuuuddddeeee, come ridddeee meee.'"
[Wyatt looks at Jude blankly. Jude is about to reach for the board, so Wyatt snatches it away. Jude pouts.]
[Jen is working at the Penalty Box. From outside, Caitlin spots her.]
Caitlin: [into her phone] "Okay, Nikki, she's alone. I'm going in." [She closes her phone and walks inside.] "Jen, I have to talk to you."
[Jen holds up her hand. A "charge" tone goes off.]
Jen: [monotone] "Charge." [to Caitlin] "New store policy. We have to do cheers now."
Caitlin: [heading for a changing room] "I have a new plan to get Jack to like me." [entering the room and shutting the door] "Okay, so, so far he's only seen one side of me."
Jen: "The side that gets arrested?"
Caitlin: "I know, right? So humiliating. So I wrote him a love poem. I'm gonna read it to him in front of all the guys he works with! Wouldn't that be sweet? Jen?"
[Jen visibly strains to keep from dispensing advice to Caitlin.]
Jen: [too fast] "Sure. You should do whatever you wanna do."
Caitlin: [exiting the changing room] "That's what I thought too."
[Caitlin's skirt is tucked into her panties, and she doesn't seem to notice. Jen does, however.]
Jen: "Caitlin, your–" [She covers her mouth as she realizes what Caitlin's doing.]
Caitlin: "Huh? Did you say something?"
Jen: [mouth covered] "Mmm-mmm."
Caitlin: "'Kay. Bye! Wish me luck!"
Jen: [after she leaves] "Urgh! Jonesy!"
[Having fixed her skirt, Caitlin dials up Nikki as she walks.]
Caitlin: "She's good."
Nikki: "Really? How far did you go?"
Caitlin: "Oh, I went far. Trust me. So, how do you think Jude's doing without his skateboard?"
Nikki: "Oh, I'm sure he's doing fine."
[At the Big Squeeze, Jude is most certainly not doing fine. He's chasing around Wyatt to get it back.]
Jude: [panting as Wyatt stands on the table] "Okay dude, just give me the skateboard, and I won't push you off the table!"
Wyatt: [chuckling] "As if. You wouldn't do th–" [Jude does that.] "WH–hey!"
[Jonesy is with Jude at Stick It, holding a pair of binoculars. Nearby, a brunnette eats a slice of pizza.]
Jonesy: "Okay. Now here's a good example." [looking at her butt] "What is the proper name for a girl's butt muscles?"
Jude: "The gluteus maximus!"
Jonesy: [as she leaves the vision] "Hold on! I'm losing the subject!" [She appears, eyes staring into the binoculars.] "Uh-oh."
Glutes Girl: "A-heh-hem."
[Jonesy looks up, grinning nervously. The girl smashes her pizza into his face and walks off.]
Glutes Girl: "Jerk."
Jonesy: "If you wanted to have lunch with me, all you had to do was ask!"
[Nikki has moved Jude back to the Big Squeeze.]
Nikki: "The top three trading nations in the world are?"
Jude: [riding on his skateboard] "China, the U.S.A., and Germany."
Jude: "See? I think much better when I'm skating." [He crashes into something.] "Bummer."
[Caitlin is tutoring Jude on literature at the Big Squeeze.]
Caitlin: "'When in that moment so it came to pass, Titania waked and straightway loved an ass.'" [confused] "What does that mean?"
Jude: "I have no idea." [noticing something down the corridor] "Hey. Isn't that a sale at your favorite chick store?"
Jude: [leaning in] "You know you want to. Just give me a few minutes with my tunes and I won't tell anyone."
[Caitlin grabs the headphones away from him.]
Caitlin: "No, Jude. We have to study."
[Caitlin looks back at the store, and the pressure gets to her.]
Caitlin: "Okay. Read all the notes for Act 2 by the time I get back, and I'll give it to you for half an hour."
Jude: "Deal." [listening to music] "Sweet."
[Jen is trying to fit a shoe on a customer's foot. Nikki and Wyatt walk up to her.]
Nikki: "Guess what? We've decided we're both gonna get tattoos. Today!"
Jen: "Bluffing! Bluff bluff bluffy bluff!"
[Caitlin and Jude are still at work.]
Caitlin: "Okay. So what she's saying is she'd love him no matter what he looked like. Get it?" [She looks up to find Jude nowhere near.] "Huh?" [She finds Jude sticking his head in the freezer.] "What are you doing! You're going to get sick!"
Jude: "Exactly! That way I can miss exams. Except–I'm not sick yet. Maybe my hair's not wet enough."
Caitlin: [grabbing him] "No! C'mon! I know you can do it!"
Jude: "But if I don't pass I'll let you all down."
Caitlin: "Aw, no you won't. I mean, please, we've all failed a class before."
Caitlin: "...no. But I would if it'd make you feel better." [leading him out] "C'mon. Let's go over Act III again."
[Caitlin, Jen, and Jude are at the Big Squeeze.]
Jen: "So how did English Lit. go?"
Jude: "Shakespeare is now my dude!"
Wyatt: [walking up] "What's up?" [Wyatt is wearing a shirt with Jason's face in a heart on the front.]
Wyatt: "Not bad?"
[Jen spits out her drink in shock.]
Jen: "I love Jason?!? From DawgToy?!?"
Jude: "Dude that isn't funny."
Wyatt: "Are you kidding? This is hot! You don't think a guy wearing this is...I dunno, stupid, lame, totally uncool?"
Jen: "I love DawgToy. In fact, you should wear it all the time."
[The smile drops from Wyatt's face and he takes his seat.]
Wyatt: [whispering to Jude] "Darn she's good."
Jude: "Don't you have any pride?"
Jonesy: [making an announcement offscreen] "Everybody, listen up! Jonesy is going to do the escalator!"
[Jonesy is at the top of the escalator, wearing a helmet and standing on a skateboard.]
Jen: [calling to him] "I don't think you have the nerve!"
Jonesy: "What, you don't think I can do it?"
Stanley: "You're gonna die." [A kid with him nods assent.]
Jonesy: "Right. That's probably true." [calling down] "I'm gonna do it unless someone tells me to stop!"
Jen: "He's not gonna do it! Not even Jonesy's dumb enough to risk his life for a bet! Just ignore him!"
Jonesy: "Aw, who am I kidding? This is nuts." [Jonesy turns to go and slips on his skateboard. He falls down the escalator.]
Jonesy: "Aah! Ooh! Ow! Ooh! Ow ow eeh! Ah! Eeh aah ooh eeh!" [He ends up in a trashcan.] "Aww...somebody get me a hot nurse!"
Jude: [racing over with Wyatt] "Gutsiest move I ever saw, bro."
Jonesy: [getting out of the can] "I think I broke my wrist!"
Wyatt: "Darn she's good."
Jonesy: "What the heck are you wearing, dude?!?"
Caitlin: "Are you okay?"
Jonesy: [being helped into his seat] "Yeah. I think so."
Caitlin: "Good, 'cause I'm late for my psychic. She's gonna tell me who I'm gonna marry and what career path I should take."
[Jen slaps her forehead as Caitlin leaves.]
Jude: "Oh, I almost forgot. If I pass my exams, I've decided to go skydiving. Naked!"
[Jen groans, pulls her hoodie shut, and slams her head on the table.]
Jonesy: "Why didn't I think of that one?"
[Jen and Jude are studying in the Penalty Box.]
Jude: "But what if my parachute doesn't open?"
Jen: "Jude, give it up! You're not gonna make me crack!" [Nikki and Wyatt enter the store.]
Nikki: "We've picked our tattoos!" [She puts a bulldog picture against the glass.] "What do you think? I just think it says 'me'."
Jen: "I think you're full of it. And by the way, we're trying to study here."
Wyatt: "Don't you even want to see mine?"
Jen: "You know what? I'll go with you for moral support."
Nikki: "Great. Five o'clock at the tattoo parlor."
Jen: "Fine. See you there."
[Jen and Jude walk through the mall, Jen carrying books and Jude carrying his backpack.]
Jen: "So we're pulling an all-nighter at my house Sunday night, right?"
Jude: "Cool. Are you heading to the tattoo parlor to watch?"
Jen: "Jude. There will not be any tattoos. They're bluffing."
[Caitlin sees the two and calls Jude.]
Jude: [into his phone] "Yo."
Caitlin: "It's me. Did you crack her yet?"
Caitlin: "You mean not even the naked skydiving thing worked?!?"
Caitlin: "Nevermind. I'm on it." [She hangs up and meets up with Jen and Jude.] "Hey guys! This is my new boyfriend Ax."
[Ax is a tall metalhead with dyed hair and several tattoos.]
Caitlin: [whispering gleefully to Jen] "My psychic thinks he's the one!"
[Jen drops her books, tears at her hair, and clamps her mouth shut in order to say nothing.]
Jude: "Sup, dude. Wanna go see our friends get tattooed?"
[Jen, Caitlin, Wyatt, Nikki, Jude, and Ax have met up at the tattoo parlor.]
Jen: [whispering to Caitlin] "They'll never go through with it."
Wyatt: [whispering to Nikki] "She'll never let us do it."
Jen: [whispering to Caitlin] "I mean, it's permanent. Please. Like they'd do this to win a bet."
Nikki: [whispering to Wyatt] "I mean, it's permanent. Like she'd let us do it to win a bet."
Tattoo Muscle Guy: "We all set?"
[Wyatt and Nikki cringe, looking unsteady.]
Jen: "So? What are you guys waiting for?"
Nikki: "Fine. Who's first, 'cause, I'm ready."
Jen: "Can't wait to see it when it's done."
[Nikki titters nervously.]
Nikki: "Me either!"
Wyatt: [calm] "I'll go first."
[Wyatt goes into the tattoo room. Nikki looks at Jen, shocked. Jen is perfectly calm. She peers into the room.]
Nikki: "Jen's not cracking! What do we do? What do we do?"
Tattoo Muscle Guy: "Okay, here we go. This is gonna sting a bit."
[The tattoo artist starts to lower the needle. Wyatt gasps. Nikki gasps. Jen, realizing this is happening, gasps.]
Jen: "Stop!" [She grabs Wyatt.] "You'll never forgive yourself if you get the wrong one! And what is with that shirt? Not cool!" [to Nikki] "What about when you're forty? Do you want the other soccer moms to see a big scary bulldog on your butt?" [to Caitlin] "This guy has way too much makeup on, and I don't care what your psychic partner thinks, he's not 'the one'." [to Jude] "Naked skydiving?!? Are you insane?!?" [Jonesy walks in.] "And you! What are you doing here? You're gonna get fired! Again!"
[Jen pants, exhausted from the blowup. Jonesy grins.]
Jonesy: "I knew it! I knew you couldn't keep your mouth shut!"
Jen: "Okay. Okay. I lose the bet. But I'm right. About everything."
Jonesy: "You're not right about me!"
Toy Store Manager: "Jonesy, if you're here, who's watching the toy store?"
[Some children walk by carrying toys. The manager looks at Jonesy angrily.]
Jonesy: "I know, I'm fired, I get it."
Jen: "I told you so."
Tattoo Muscle Guy: "Is anyone getting a tattoo, today?"
Wyatt: "I am."
Nikki: "But Jen cracked. Mission accomplished."
Wyatt: "Jonesy was right. I never take chances. Maybe this is fate telling me it's time to break out."
Nikki: "Fine. But do not get anything too big. It's permanent, you know."
Jen: [grinning] "I heard that."
[Wyatt is showing his tattoo–a sixteenth note–to his friends.]
Nikki: "Well, it doesn't exactly scream rebel, but it is pretty cool."
[Ron leads Caitlin up to the lemonade stand.]
Ron: "Now I trust you'll leave that young man alone."
Caitlin: [taking a seat, whimpering] "Yes."
Ron: "I mean it. I don't want any more trouble out of you, lemon girl."
Caitlin: [upset] "Okay, I said I'd stay away from him!"
[Ron, convinced, leaves her alone with her friends.]
Nikki: "Please tell me you didn't listen to Jen again."
Caitlin: "I just went by his store to say sorry." [She puts her head in her hands.]
Jude: [skating up] "I'm so stoked. I never thought I'd be so happy about passing exams! I just went naked skydiving! What a sick rush, dudes! You gotta try it."
Jonesy: "Give it a rest, man. We got her, remember?"
Jude: "Why does everyone think I made that one up?"
Jen: "Really Jude, you can stop now."
Jude: "You don't believe me?!? Check it out!" [He slaps down photographic evidence.]
