Cue skateboard music from episode two. Helmeted Cameron rips down a "No Skateboarding" sign from a pole in slow motion. He continues around the school skating in and out of crowds of cheerleaders. He rips down another sign. Meghan enters the school and passes another "No Skateboarding" sign. Geez, all these signs just for Cameron? Meghan says "hi" to someone to prove she does indeed know people (because it is important for this episode to prove early on that she's popular). She says "hi" to someone else. The kids in the hallway all stop and stare at her as she walks by. She stops and talks to some girl and some guy and says, "Hey! Hey! Um, guess what? After homecoming, Larry Wilks is having a thing at his beach house." "Are you still going?" Blonde Boy asks her. "Well, aren't we still going?" she responds, so I guess in the aftermath of her heartbreak of losing Soul Patch Boy and the death of her "best friend's" dad she went out and got a boyfriend and a homecoming date. Blonde Boy and Non-Descript Brunette Girl share a glance and Blonde Boy says to Meghan, "Well, I think we both know that is so not going to happen." He walks off. Some guy is staring at Meghan in a corner. Another extra leans in to get in the shot and stares. "Huh. Okay, and that was about?" Meghan asks Brunette Girl. "Uh..."she exhales. "I gotta get to class." I'm pointing out now the amount of exhaling that happens in this episode. Keep track. Meghan looks around and everyone in the hallway is giggling, holding hands, staring and occasionally shouting, "Are you serious?" People are staring while walking away. Some look serious. Meghan turns to us and asks, "Are you seeing this?" Uh, no, Meghan, I hadn't noticed. The subtle camera work of Get Real didn't quite hit me over the head repeatedly until concussion like it usually does.
Cameron's stunt double does a nice rail slide down a staircase. There are six "No Skateboarding" signs up in a row. Subtle. Cameron grabs one sign and rips it while making a mighty yawp (while standing next to another sign). He's interrupted by Dr. Sedgwick, the Vice-Principal who said that Cameron is dumb because he's into "extreme sports" in the "Why Can't Cameron Count?" episode. I do want to mention that although Cam always has his helmet on, it is never fastened. Dr. Sedgwick takes the sign from him and says, "This is vandalism, you know." Cam tells her it's a protest as a thirty-five-year-old student walks by. Dr. Sedgwick mentions detention. Cameron flirts with her by saying "You are so, so out to get me." She exhales: "Oh. You think this is personal?" Cameron jumps in his Way-Back Machine and retorts, "Duh!" She tells him that his file was part of her orientation packet. Bill says, "Not even." "Even," says Ted. He exhales. She gives him detention. He exhales again. She takes his skateboard. The female extra walking by thinks that the director just yelled "cut" freezes, realizes she's still on screen, and then jerks forward and walks off screen.
