West Roswell High. Present Day. The temporal structure! So fluid! Guy Pearce is looking for a mystery man named Mikey G. And here he is! Inside the hallways of said school, Michael harasses a teacher we've seen on this or another WB show before, though not the one who sent Michael on the wild geezer chase in "Summer of '47" that still finds him trying to get the old-man smell out of his clothes lo these many months later. Michael is begging Stock Fussy Bespectacled WB Teacher to let him into his "Bio 101 class," claiming that he used to not take biology seriously because he used to think he was moving out of Roswell. Fussy WB Teacher sets 'em up ("And how far away did you plan to move that you didn't think your records would have been sent to your new high school?") and Michael knocks 'em down ("Actually, pretty far.") and only the teacher's insistence that the line "What are you, some kind of alien or something?" be cut from the script saves this whole sequence from the utter heights and depths of gayness. Because that hair ain't helping either. Michael reasons that if WB Prof helps him graduate this year, he'll be out of there soon and the teacher will never have to see him again. What kind of public school is this, anyway? Who talks to their teachers like that? In my school, if I'd failed a class and marched up to the teacher and demanded to be let in, they'd be all, "Actually, it is a federal requirement that you pass biology, so I'm sure you'll get into the class immediately." Then they'd probably pause and stare at me for a minute before their eyes flickered ever so imperceptibly and they added, "Hey, wait a sec. You're that smart kid's little brother, aren't you?" Right. This happened to a friend of mine.
