PRINCIPAL GIBBONS: I don’t know you. Why are we just now meeting? Using language like this should have warranted a visit to me years ago. This is foul. Someone with such an extensive vocabulary shouldn’t be stooping to such vituperations.

Wipe that smile off your face. I don’t tolerate this kind of language. If I find out you’ve used a word like this in my school again, it will be your last.  This isn’t one of those creative-hippy schools where teachers are called by their first names and parents “help out in the classroom” and students are “partners in learning.”  You get sent here once more and you’re out on your ass.  Get me?

Think very carefully before you speak. Detention tomorrow after school. I don’t want to see you again. Get out of my office.
