Pueblo's mom thinks out loud that maybe she'll only want boyfriends now and what does Pueblo think about that? Pueblo thinks that'll be a problem because it would be creating a very unstable home life for his little sister. You know, he may very well think that and believe that, but it's the WAY he says it that makes me want to shove my remote control up his left nostril and whack him about the head with a tennis racket. Just say what you mean, Pueblo! Don't be all high-falutin' about it! Don't flaunt your sixth-period basic English vocabulary words at your mother. Knock it off. Oh, and Pueblo? KNOCK IT OFF.
Reason #2 Why Pablo Is A Fucking Tool: Because he doesn't give his mother a break. Yes, she's had failed marriages. No, that's not entirely cool. Yes, it's disturbing to the family environment. No, it doesn't give you a reason to constantly treat her like shit. Yes, I will torture you with medieval instruments if I get the chance.
Beneath the arty Pueblo Photo Montage, Pueblo tells us that his mom left Ecuador to come to the States when Pueblo was two in order to make money. "She made a lot of sacrifices for the things that she did," he says. "And one of things that she did was sacrifice us. Maybe it was worth it. Let's hope it was." Well, if one child turns out as thankless and annoying as Pueblo, probably not. However, if the other child turns out to know a fairytale from bullshit, then maybe so.
Then we're at school, and Morgan is packing up his backpack as he tells us, "College and stuff like that...it's closing the door. It's the first step you have to take toward responsibility. And [since] I'm the childish kid that I am, responsibility is my enemy." After Morgan relieves a candy jar of most of its contents, his guidance counselor talks to him about some school that Morgan's obviously applied to. There's some talk about open admissions and proper environment or something, but all I can pay attention to is little Morgan's face; he looks like he's twelve or something, and he so totally doesn't want to go to college or to grow up. And you know, now that this season is coming to an end, Morgan's one of the kids I want to follow. If PBS were to do a whole "follow-up" special (like The Real World, but only with more class and less Puck), I'd be super-glued to my set, waiting to find out what Morgan's up to and what he's turned out to be. No, I'm not being sarcastic. Shut up and eat your Cheetos.
