FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Mr. Simpson says that Toby spelt his name wrong, but in the bottom of the letter which shows his name, it is spelt correctly.

    • When Emma sends the email to Sean, you can see she is replying to a message called, "That was brutal". It wouldn't make sense because Sean looked surprised when he got an email.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • (Emma thinks Tracker is wrong for wanting NAK to stay)
      Tracker: I'm wrong? Tell me Emma, is it fair or is it wrong that Sean here is falling behind in school because we can't afford a computer?
      Emma: He can do his homework here.
      Tracker: What? Yeah, on the free computers.
      Emma: If you read the entire article, you would know -
      Tracker: That it's a piece of garbage.
      Emma: It is not garbage!
      Tracker: Looks like garbage to me. Smells like garbage.
      Sean: Tracker, man...
      Tracker: All I'm saying is there is two sides to every story. Try to remember that next time. (they leave)

    • Emma: Okay, so let's try to imagine. You're a squeegee kid.
      Manny: Okay, I'm a squeegee kid.
      Emma: So how does it feel being compared to a cockroach?
      Manny: I'd say, "Hey, preppy kids. Get off my case. We're people, too."
      Sean: Oh, please.

    • Emma: That's the thing. They don't us to think. They wants us to become braindead NAK robots.
      Toby: (to Manny) What's with her?
      Manny: NAK rage, kind of like road rage.

    • Paige: Every time NAK claims your airspace, you go all manic-depressive.
      Ashley: That is so not true. I just - Look at this zit!
      Terri: That's a pore and Paige has a point.

    • Emma: Last week NAK told us to join the army. What's tomorrow? A hole in the O-Zone is good because it makes a better tan? Imagine being a squeegee kid. Out in the cold, no school, no parents.
      Toby: No parents?
      Emma: Toby this isn't a joke!

    • (NAK is shown on the TV)
      Ryan: Hi, I'm Ryan, and this is Nicole. And welcome to NAK, News About Kids. Today we'll be talking about that infests major cities everywhere
      Nicole: And we're not talking cockroaches, we're talking squeegee kids.
      Ryan: Stalking street corners, waiting to pounce on un suspecting cars. Hijacking your hard-earned cash to waste on drugs and tattoos.
      Nicole: Are squeegee kids legit or lazy? Are they using their "cool" trend for today's media saturated youth?

    • J.T.: Hey, we could contaminate the water fountations with E Coli, that way they'd have to shut down the school, right?
      Toby: There probably is E Coli in the fountations.
      Mr. Simpson: (interupting) Actually, we test our water on a daily basis, boys. It's fine.

    • Paige: (to Ashley and Terri) Heather Sinclair has an agent...with that overbite?

    • Paige: Where would Ashley get a casting agent?
      Ashley: Hey, guys! Toby's mom is a casting agent.

    • J.T.: Sorry, man. Didn't know it was that serious.
      Toby: Yeah, well, it is that serious.

    • Paige: Toby, Hon... That's... great.

    • Manny: He stared right at you.
      Emma: That's because I bumped into him.

    • Mr. Simpson: (to Toby) Your parents should be proud of the way you handled them in there. I know I certainly was.
