Quick! Fast forward through the edgy credit sequence! HURRY!
Then we're flipping quickly through various kids (including Puck Lite and Allie) talking about how they love their friends, but sometimes their friends annoy them and how they sometimes need more and blah dee blah dee blah...Kaytee comes onscreen and says, "A lot of people don't like me." I feel you, girl. Kaytee then makes an ugly face and wiggles her hands and says in a silly voice, "I can't understand why." I feel you times two, girl. 'Cuz I thought a lot of people didn't like me in high school, and the only way I could deal with it was by making fun of myself and throwing myself into plays and writing. Damn. I hate it when I identify with these kids...Brad then comes on and spouts some Brad-isms, followed by a girl I've never seen before talking about how her friends are getting really old and she's tired of them.
And then we're on to Pablo's very first complete segment. He's in the drop-in center, talking to some woman with a circa-Camelot knavish haircut going on. She's concerned that, last year, Pablo was involved with drugs. P-man's all, "The way I got mixed up in that...it's, like, strange, really. A favor of a favor of a friend..." Um. What? How's that? Like, "Dude. Do me a favor. Take this bag of pot and, you know, smoke it." How is doing drugs a "favor" to anyone? (I mean, of course, besides yourself -- drugs, especially over-the-counter cold medications, rock. And don't send me any emails berating me for my endorsement of drugs of any kind -- I'm a thirty-two-year-old adult woman with a massive head cold right now, and I just might come over there and sneeze on you. However, the combination of Sudafed Severe Cold Formula and Robitussin PE is forcing me to remain seated for the time being. Lucky you.) Little Lord Fauntleroy goes on to say that this so-called "drug involvement" has also been mentioned this year, so she knows that it's not something that's going away. P-man agrees. LLF wants to know if this is something Pablo's going to work on. Yeah. He's going to work on it, all right. He's going to go right out and work on that bong he made out of an empty can of Jolt. Pablo says, "Everyone needs to work on...everything...and moderation is Bacchus' first rule." Yeah. I'm gonna smack him.
