Now, here's the part where the various students that we've come to know and love (or hate, in CrAbby's case) all cross the stage and pick up their diplomas. Back in Morgan's room, he's STILL bitching about how he doesn't understand why he has to suffer so much just because he's not getting his diploma by walking across a stage. His dad is down in the Kitchen of Despair, saying that the whole walking-across-the-stage thing doesn't really matter to him. "There are so few moments that Mary and I can sort of look at each other and say, for a second, 'We did something right. We finally got to this point. And then we're ready for the next battle.' This was a bad one to have taken away," he concludes. I feel for the Pops and the Moms. This really must have sucked for them. I'm sure they just wanted a single moment in time where they both weren't contemplating sending Morgan off to Siberia with nothing but a toothbrush and a pair of antique snowshoes.
The kids continue crossing the stage. Brad, Brett, wait -- is that Teddy the Tard? Ew. And here's where it looks like the producers are dipping into the B-M pool again, because they show a cut shot of Kaytee looking pathetic right after Tard crosses the stage. The hell? Did that really happen? You can't tell me that the camera guys were so on top of it that, when Tard crossed the stage, they had a camera in place to capture Kaytee's reaction. Right. Let's assume that her "reaction" wasn't a "reaction" at all but just an innocent facial expression that had nothing to do with Tard. Or maybe she had a bean burrito for lunch, and she has to cut the cheese but doesn't want to do it while she's onstage in front of everyone, and therefore she's holding it in and it's giving her a pained expression. Maybe that's it.
And here's the part where Pablo tries to graduate with "dignity and honor" by ditching his cap in favor of a laurel wreath. Yeah, it's dumb. Doesn't matter how ridiculous it is, or how lame he looks -- the teachers aren't letting him walk across the stage wearing it. They actually surround him and force him to take the laurel wreath off because they're all under the misguided impression that Pablo's trying to play some sort of joke. Come on. What does it matter what's on his head? It's a silly, inane gesture, and it's making him REALLY upset that you're not letting him do this. He thinks this little wreath is going to announce to the world that he's HIMSELF and no one else. Yeah, he's delusional. Yeah, he's gonna look hilarious. But let him do it -- it's no reflection on the school. It's a reflection of what a tool Pablo sometimes is.
