Finally someone has heard my prayers and has put commercials after the opening credits. Thank you.
Mitch is driving Cameron to school. Oh Lord, who gave the mouth breather gum? Mitch tells Cam that they are trying to get him back into Truman, and that he's on the wait list for four other private schools but until then he has to go to alternative school (Thank you! There's a law, you know). Mitch says that it could be a very positive experience for him. "Are you high? I'm going to Alcatraz," Cam says, as the sensitive oboe wails along with the tearful pre-teens that want Cam's pretty face unscathed. Mitch says that it'll be hard, but Cam might learn a lesson. "What lesson?" "Actions have consequences." If this school teaches that, then perhaps the entire Green family might want to check in for a semester.
Who's this Ethan Embry that the kids keep talking about these days? Well, he's a guest star in this episode.
As Cam and Mitch pull up to the gated school area Cam says, "No guard towers, that's a good sign." "Cam, this isn't my fault. Okay? You put yourself here." It goes against the Green code to accept any fault in any situation, you see. Mitch tells Cam that he'll pick him up at three. "Whatever," Cam says as he cues the Testosterone Guitar and storms out of the Saab like the poor white boy he is. You can't go to Alternative School in a Saab. He's so gonna get beat up. extras chosen for this shot. Each one of them wears an outfit that costs over a hundred dollars. One has at least fifty bucks worth of Bed Head. Two ski caps. One flannel shirt. One girl. The metal detector sets off on one kid, and they toss him into the fence and start patting him down. They pull something from his back pocket (a really good hiding space) that looks like a metal sex toy. I guess it's supposed to be a folded switchblade. But it's fabulous looking. The busted twenty-eight year old lets the guard push his shoulder back and forth as Cameron looks around suspiciously.
