Chorus rehearsal. As the students butcher "All Through The Night," we pan across the chorus to Hunter "Ugly Friend" Scangarelo and Meadow "Bratizen Kane" Soprano, both singing along and looking utterly bored. Meadow then jumps the cue for her solo, and the chorus director makes a snide remark as the piano accompaniment stops and the other kids snicker. Hunter says in Meadow's defense that they stayed up "past two" the night before studying for the SATs. "Are you her lawyer?" the director asks mildly. Heh. "No," Meadow sulks, and the director starts to say that she doesn't know why "they" scheduled SATs the same week as the concert, but Meadow interrupts to brat, "Same day," and the director snaps, "What?" and all the kids start talking amongst themselves.
Walking down the hall, Meadow says pointedly to Hunter, "Get kicked out of Concert Singers and there goes our best extracurricular," and Hunter snarks, "Goodbye Berkeley, hello Glassboro State," and Meadow says that she can't wait to put the entire "North American land mass" between her and her parents. Yeah, a few of us on this side of said land mass can't wait for that either, Bratty Arbuckle. "New Jersey blows," Hunter agrees. Meadow moans that she wants to go to Berkeley "sooo baaaad," and Hunter says she can't deal anymore, and Meadow grumbles that they won't get any sleep until after the SATs.
