Bullies suck.

Previously on Boston Public: In a scene we never saw before, Dick Teachie suggested that the teachers put on a talent show for the kids; The Gay Son's Mom Lady asked Big Boy if it's her fault that Jeremy's gay, and protested that he's good at sports; Teachie told Steven that teaching is selfish because he likes to think he's making things better for the kids; Harvey explained to Marilyn that when he sings in the talent show, people scream, and Marilyn countered that this is because he's very scary; Harvey sang "If I Were A Rich Man."

Sanctum Stevenorium. Steven does an excellent Mike Tyson impression for Scott and The Exposition Fairy. In lights of recent events, this is both more and less funny, but it's still a good impression. Scott's all, "I can do JFK," and proceeds to quote a JFK speech in his own voice. "That sounds like you." "But they're JFK's words." Heh. Louisa's all, "Oooh, I'm gonna get up onstage and quote people. That's a talent." "And what are you gonna do? Get up there and shake your bounty, Louisa?" "I think you mean 'booty.'" Of course he does, but why would he think it was "bounty"? Who has ever said that in the history of life on earth?

YMCA. Dick Teachie is helping cerebral palsy kids swim around. At the moment, he's occupied with a kid named Hunter. When he gets out of the pool (Teachie, not Hunter, obviously), he is intercepted by Hunter's parents. Let's call them the Head Hunters. Because they're in charge of Hunter, of course, not because they'll turn out to be soulless mercenaries. Or both. Anyway: "We want Hunter to be fully included. He wants it. He's very close to graduation, he very badly wants a diploma, and we think he can get one at a regular school. His academic performance has been very strong." Teachie says he's definitely smart enough, but, get this: "There might be some challenges physically." Oh, you think? The Head Hunters were hoping that Hunter could attend Winslow, but Teachie says that Winslow's not exactly state-of-the-art. "As long as all his classes could be scheduled on the same floor, that's really all he'd need." Teachie says he'll make inquiries and let them know. Hunter swims around in the pool.

Delineation Alley. Teachie explains the Hunter situation to Scott. Scott says it's okay, provided the school can meet his needs. I mean, Winslow's not exactly state-of-the-art, I've heard, but that didn't seem to bother the Head Hunters. I wonder why that is? Anyway, Teachie veers off and walks with Steven, who tells him he needs to rehearse his Norton for their Honeymooners sketch. Teachie complains, "All I do is say, 'Ralphy Boy.'" Steven says the show is about morale, not ego. "Hey, my ego is good for morale."
