DICK METIZIER: I don’t get it.  What you have against your mother and me, against your brother Paul, is completely beyond me.  And your mother is extremely upset; she’s at the end of her rope.  Your behavior gets crazier and crazier and wilder and wilder, and who knows what the hell else you’re doing out there that we don’t even know about?

Don’t you smartass me!  Don’t you dare smartass me!  You just shut your mouth I (taking a breath) Now your mother and I have had a long talk with Halt Hendricks — we just got off the phone with him at home. You know, he doesn’t want you back at Millard.  He’s fed up with you.  Fed up!  And I don’t blame him!

You’re going to Catholic school next year. You’re going to Sacred Heart. Maybe they’ll straighten you out!
