Vice Principals (2016–2018): Season 2, Episode 7 - Spring Break - full transcript

Gamby gets unexpected company on spring break; Amanda is illuminated during a writer's retreat.

But you should.

Neal Gamby and I are seeing each other.

It's that time of year again.

For the Highschool Assesment Program.

Shouldn't tests be about learning?

It is, it's about the district learning
what an effective school we are.

And what an awesome
fucking principal I am.

- [BLOWS RASPBERRY]
- [LAUGHING]

Okay, so ever since spring term started,

we stopped teaching to the tests.

What the teachers have done is wrong.



It's a full mutiny.

North Jackson High School!

- They're in!
- [SCREAMING]

Christine!

Christine is gone.

Why do all these bad things
keep happening to me?

Where the fuck are they?

Well, Nash said they'll be
here, so they'll be here.

Heads up! It's Big Cuckoo,

and I brought the little birdy with me.

Uh, Nash said you wanted to see me?

What is this place?

I wanted to thank you for
your help with the HSAPs.

Since certain enemies of the
school revealed themselves,



I feel that what we did was right.

And now North Jackson is back on track.

Now, because those teachers

would eat a baby's dick to expose us,

we need to take this to the grave.

Now, I know that I can trust these two.

Can I trust you, Amanda?

Oh, yeah. I'm not gonna
say anything to anyone.

[SIGHS]

Okay.

[SIGHS, GASPS]

Oh, my God.

Nash.

[GASPS]

- [GASPS]
- SNODGRASS: Oh, um...

Is it... is it okay if I don't use that

'cause of the blood all over it?

Cool. Thanks.

Uh...

Aah... [HISSES]

- My knife.
- Yup.

RUSSELL:
Then our blood pact is set.

Now we touch tips.

BOTH: ♪ Bloody promises, bloody tips ♪

♪ This is how a pact is made ♪

Great. Great.

So, what is everybody
doing for spring break?

I'm heading west to Sedona.

- Hit the spa.
- Hm.

This time tomorrow, I'll
be tits-deep in goop.

BOTH: Hm. Hm.

I hear you're, uh, going to the beach?

Yeah, I am. To Isle of
Palms with my daughter.

Not Abbott though. She's not
allowed to come to the ocean.

- Mm.
- What about you, Amanda?

Are you doing something interesting?

Yes, actually.

I'm going to an arts
festival in Asheville.

They invited Brian to read
from his new novel. Oh.

NASH:
That's quite an honor.

It means a whole weekend where it's
not just you sucking his meat-stick.

SNODGRASS:
Yup.

- Should be cool.
- Well, great.

That's so great. I'm so happy to
hear everybody's having such a...

a good, fun time at spring break.

I'm gonna be home,

alone in my bathrobe,

just being with me.

Just loving on me because...

I'm getting a divorce.

[LAUGHS]

Oh, let's go right here.

- This is how I feel about it.
- GAMBY: Really?

- Oh, yeah.
- Okay.

Everybody, hands on top.

Happy spring break, y'all!

[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHEERING] All right, settle down!

Settle down! I'm excited to get out
of here too, but be civilized.

- Hey.
- Hey, how's it going?

Why aren't you wearing your jean jacket?

I don't know.

After closer looks, I don't
really feel like it's my style.

We're not gonna see each other
for a whole week. I hate it!

Yeah, it sucks big time.

- Yeah.
- But like I told you,

you know, going to the beach is
my daughter and I's tradition,

so it's kind of like a
special bonding thing.

Oh, my God, you know what I
just thought of just now?

- What?
- What if I went with you guys?

Let's not even think about that 'cause
that's never gonna happen, okay?

Are you sure you're not mad at me?

No, I'm fine.

It's just you seem
weird, kind of distant.

I'm not acting weird. Hey, Sue.

I'm just trying to get these
people out of here on time.

[SIGHS]

I have to tell you something.
I'm nervous about it.

Everything okay?

Just don't freak out 'cause
it's actually really beautiful.

Well, I'm gonna freak out if you don't
tell me what it is. What is it?

Remember that time when you tried
to pull out and I leg-locked you?

Yeah.

Well, you sneezed inside of me.

I'm pregnant.

What?

Oh, fuck.

Are you fucking serious?

[GROANS]

No, I'm not really pregnant.

I was trying to trap you.

- Fuck, I'm gonna miss you so much.
- What the fuck?

[GIGGLES]

Remind you what I taste like.

I love you.

[ALARM BLARING]

Shit.

You should have told me you were comin'.

I would have disabled
my perimeter defenses.

I'm sorry, Gamby.

I just had the ugliest meeting
with Christine and her lawyer.

This will be the loneliest
spring break ever

if I have to be in that big
ol' house all by myself.

I feel for you, bud.

But I'm not sure what you
want me to do about it.

[GRUNTS] [YELPS]

I wanna come on spring break with you.

Oh, man.

I'm sorry, buddy,

but this week is reserved
for me and Janelle.

But you said she's bringing a friend.

Can't you bring a friend too?

Look, we can... we can... we
can even take my new Jeep.

I won it in the divorce.

It has leather seats, satellite radio,

it even has a motherfucking sunroof!

Cruise to the beach in style.

I mean...

Please?

GAMBY:
Cowabunga!

Who's ready to hang 10

- at the beach?
- Surprise.

Yo, Neal, we were just gabbing
with your lady-friend here.

- What the fuck are you doing here?
- ABBOTT: Got you some

homemade sugar browns
here for your trip.

That's nice.

What? I'm sorry, did you not invite Jen

to come with you on the beach trip?

No, no, no, Gale.

I never ever thought
that was part of this.

I know this trip is about Neal

having quality time with Janelle,

and I would never ever want to

- be in the way of that.
- Aww.

[WHISPERS] Let's kiss in
front of your family.

GALE: That's really nice.

Uh, Janelle, hey, cool.
Time to go bye-bye.

Deb and Beth are still getting changed.

Hey, baby, did you pack your sunscreen?

Because you don't tan,
you know, you burn.

Whatever, Mom.

Can you just stop acting
like you know everything?

Ooh! She's cocksure like her father.

It's gonna be fun raising her.

She's just showing off
in front of her friends.

Hey, Deb, Deb's the one
you gotta watch out for.

She acts different around Deb.

- Mean.
- Yeah.

Oh, maybe you do need me
going along on this trip.

Do you mind if we step outside

so we can have a chit-chat in privacy?

You don't seem happy to see me.

Well, that's because I'm not.

I am on a very tight schedule

if I want to make the most of this trip.

How the hell did you even
know where they live?

When we first started going out,

- I might have tailed you once.
- Jesus!

Do you know how
super-psycho that sounds?

Whose Jeep is that?

That's my Jeep. It's a rental...
rental Jeep.

Look, let's go back inside
the house now and...

- Is that Lee Russell sitting in there?
- No. Don't pay attention to that.

Go back, go back

- in the fucking house right now!
- What the fuck, Neal?

Is he going with you?

Open your window.

- Open it!
- Calm down, fuckface.

- Are you going on spring break?
- Yes, I am.

It was a last-minute thing, okay?

He's going through a divorce.
He was being a good friend!

So, this fucking psycho...
You're a psycho!

- No, no, no, you're a fucking psycho!
- You're a psycho!

GAMBY: Guys!
Oh no.

He can go on spring break but I can't?

That's some bullshit, Neal.

- That is 100%
- Oh!

- total fucking bullshit!
- Stop that.

- Knock that shit off.
- What? That's so fucked up!

Fuck those sugar browns!

- [GRUNTS]
- GAMBY: Are you done?

Are you done spazzing out?

[PANTING] Yes.

Okay, girls, it's okay.

Bring your luggage. She's done.

Come on. Let's do it.

- Hey, Ray!
- Hey, Janelle!

Clean up these brownie things.

- Hey, Uncle Lee.
- Okay?

Ray works very hard on this lawn.

RUSSELL: Hey! [KISSES]
Oh, it's so good to see you.

- These are your friends?
- Yeah, sure.

Hey, I'm... I'm Uncle Lee-Lee.
Nice to meet you.

when we were young, whew.

before the others, we'd put
their hand in warm water,

make 'em pee themselves.

[BOTH LAUGH]

I love that one! That one's classic!

Try to make each other pee?

Why would you want to do that?

'Cause it's embarrassing to pee.

It's embarrassing for the
person trying to do that.

[TYPING SOUNDS]

It's disgusting.

We are a carload of teenage
girls heading to the beach.

It's going to get disgusting.

Unreal.

I just finished Snodgrass' book.

- Good?
- Oh, it's incredible.

I've never read anything
like this before.

- Really?
- I'm not one for reading books,

but this, this is a fantastic tale.

Gamby, Gamby, Gamby.

Why are you with Abbott

if you're in love with Snodgrass?
Tell me.

Snodgrass is with Brian.

Yeah, but Abbott? I mean, you hate her.

- [SIGHS]
- Freak.

I know.

Look, I know you're going
through a divorce,

so I don't want you to get in your head,

but being single sucks, Russell.

The lonely nights, the... the fear,

the... the fruitless masturbation,
it's... it's terrible.

Having a shitty girlfriend
like Jen Abbott's better

than being all alone.

Thanks a lot.

God, you really know how to
make a person feel good. God.

What the fuck? Uh-uh!

No, no. Deb?

What in the... [MOUTHS] are
you wearing right now?

- What? It's just a bathing suit.
- A bathing suit?

That covers less than underpanties do.

This is the style.

She's right. It's called a Brazilian.

It's very popular with all
the teenagers now. Cheers.

Yeah, they are. Like, I
totally want a Brazilian.

- DEB: Yeah.
- [SCOFFS]

Well, you're not getting
a Brazilian, Janelle.

Trust me, all right?

You wear a damn size 16
jeans, for Christ's sake.

- [RUSSELL LAUGHS]
- DEB: Janelle's lost

six pounds since Christmas,

in case you hadn't noticed.

Beth, come on.

Oh, what, now she's pissed at me?

- What a crock of shit.
- Totally.

There's no way in hell
Janelle's lost six pounds.

A toast to being fascinating! Cheers!

- To being fascinating.
- Cheers.

We are all fascinating creatures.

So, Amanda, are you...
are you a writer too?

Um, mm...

Sorry, one second. [LAUGHS]

I am a writer. Mm...

[MUMBLING] I'm just working
on a Y novel currently.

- Y-A novel.
- MAN: Oh.

Yup. And, uh, uh...

Yeah. [COUGHS]

Uh... You all right?

- Ooh.
- Yup.

I just got back my first batch of notes

from the publisher.

They want all these changes, but, um,

I suppose I'm afraid

that my voice is going to get lost.

Your voice, that's cute.

Amanda is under the assumption

that her work is perfect as is.

[BOTH CHUCKLE]

- Nope. No...
- Yup.

- [LAUGHS]
- Not at all.

I'm just not sure about all
of their suggestions, Brian.

MAN: Oh, you don't
feel it in your guts,

I say fuck the notes.

WOMAN:
He's right.

Publishers don't know what
they're talking about.

SNODGRASS: Really?
- No.

See, I've been told otherwise.

Well, I think that all depends

on the book and on the writer.

Trust me.

Stick to your guns.

To sticking to your guns...

sticky buns.

[LAUGHTER]

I've just come up with the
title for my new book.

I can remember when Janelle would let me

hold her hand on the boardwalk.

She's acting so different.

Oh, come on. She's just
trying to impress Deb.

She's a real queen bee, that one.

Yeah, 'B' for bitch.

She's got Janelle acting
all mean and teenager-y.

RUSSELL: Well, she's definitely
advanced for her age.

Look at the shape of that ass.

You could break a boy's heart on that.

Russell, she's 14 years old.

Like I said, she's advanced for her age.

Well, I don't want her
advancing my daughter.

Seems to me that somebody needs to take

bitch-ass Deb down a peg.

I was bringing you drinks to have.

Why were you crouching in
the dark by Deb's bed?

DEB:
Oh, my God!

You were doing your pee prank!

Uh, no! Gross! That's piss! No way!

Get out of our room!

- [DOOR CLOSES]
- [GROANS]

So, your colleagues
didn't think I needed

to take all of those notes.

Well, those people are real authors.

I mean, maybe they don't need
to take all those notes.

- What, am I a fake author?
- No, no.

- Don't put words into my mouth.
- No...

- Yes, you are.
- I'm not... I'm not...

I'm just talking with you.

Brian,

do you think that my book sucks?

- Don't do this.
- What?

I just... I would like
your honest opinion.

It... it matters to me.

Okay.

I think your book could use some work.

- And?
- You're... you're forcing my hand here.

I am. Come on.

Okay.

I think your book is
derivative of every book

that's ever been written
for the YA marketplace.

It's not very engaging,

none of it is very original,

it's way too long.

It's not my cup of tea.

Uh...

Brian, why on Earth did you
send it to your publisher?

Come on, do I really have
to answer that question?

- Hm?
- Yes, please.

A middle-aged man like me needs to use

all the bait that's left
in his tackle box to lure

a beautiful girl like you,

so of course I'm gonna help
you when you're asking me.

And I do really think you're talented.

- But you hate my book.
- Listen.

You need a thick skin
in this business, okay?

I got a bad review once.

Buck up.

I'll buy you an ice cream.

Janelle, do you remember this place?

Did you tell your friends
about the slider challenge?

Dad, they don't want to hear
about me eating stupid sliders.

It wasn't stupid when you ate 25 sliders

in five minutes and got our
whole entire meal comped.

[LAUGHS] Bet your picture's
still up on the wall.

Mm, that's weird. I could have sworn

your photo used to be here
by those two homosexuals.

Dad, who cares?

I care.

Sir, are you the manager? That's right.

My daughter Janelle, she completed
the burger challenge five years ago.

She got her picture up on the wall,

but we... we can't seem
to find it out there.

Oh, the older photos,
they come down sometimes

so we can make room
for the new pictures.

Huh. That's not anywhere here
on the slider challenge rules.

It doesn't say you take
the pictures down.

You better go handpick five photos

you're ready to take down
'cause we're about to put

five brand-new ones up on the wall.

[SNORTS] Okay.

Yeah. Dad, I am not eating
25 burgers in five minutes.

Babe, look, I know that
you've changed, okay,

but that part of you has not changed.

You can do it. I know you can.

Dad, I'm not doing it.

Me neither. I'm not hungry.

It's disgusting to eat
that much red meat.

Honestly, Gamby, I don't think
I can do 25 sliders either.

Well, goddammit. Okay, you know what?

It'll just be one slider challenge.

I'll be the only person
here to do it to get

his picture on the wall, and
you guys will just be jealous.

Can I just go out alone with my friends?

Alone?

What, so you can do drugs?

Drink? Do graffiti on things?

Meet fellas? Absolutely not.

That's not happening, okay?

I'm not gonna go home with three
damn teen moms on my hands.

Not me. I'm on the pill.

RUSSELL:
Just let the girls go, Gamby.

You need to give her a
chance to be trusted.

Please, Dad.

Please, Dad.

[SIGHS]

Fine. Go.

Thank you, Dad.

Keep your cell phone on you, all right?

And stay here by the boardwalk,

- all right?
- Got it.

Don't do anything we wouldn't do.

Don't come back late.
I love you, Janelle.

JANELLE:
Love you too!

Hey, I have a crazy idea.

Let's go have some fun.

You know what? This is
exactly what I needed.

I just need to trust Janelle.

[GIRLS LAUGH]

I can't do this.

You need to be with someone

who wants to go on
spring break with you,

who wants to spend time with you,

who's not embarrassed to tell
people he's going out with you.

That's not me.

I don't care about that shit.

Okay? I'll take what I can get.

That's not the way it's supposed to be.

Look, I'm sorry I strung
you along, but...

I was just afraid of being alone, and...

it's not right.

I can't do this.

No...

What? Ooh!

Stop. What are you doing?

- Ow! Right in the tits!
- [CELL PHONE CLATTERS]

Yeah, I hope that bruised your tits

'cause you bruised my heart.

- Just go, okay?
- Mm-hmm.

That's enough.

- Just one more time.
- No.

"From behind the wheel

"of the pickup, I watched Diego.

"He wouldn't see...

"the sunset.

"He mumbled to himself

"as he ventured into this new world,

"'I feel so lucky to be in
the land of opportunity,

where I will be rich and fortified.'"

Muchas gracias.

Thank you.

[APPLAUSE]

Brian Biehn, ladies and gentlemen.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

Let's take a 10-minute intermission.

Thank you very much.

Thanks. Thank you so much.

- Thank you all.
- Hi, baby.

Oh, hi. Oh, good to see you.
I appreciate that.

[GLASS SHATTERS]

I'm shocked that you showed up.

Oh.

- SNODGRASS: Um, hello, everyone.
- [FEEDBACK WHINES]

This is my first time here.

Wonderful festival.

So happy I could attend.

Um... [CLEARS THROAT]

So recently...

I realized that someone very close to me

does not believe in my talent.

I was hoping that I could get all of you

to give me an honest
assessment of my work tonight.

- What the fuck is she doing up there?
- I don't... I don't know.

I will be reading my personal favorite,

chapter 68 from my novel,
Cassiopeia Falling.

Don't read that. Please don't read that.

Please, take your seats.

[CLEARS THROAT]

Just find my place. Okay.

"Maerwyn carried the
magic stone into battle.

"It was their good luck
charm, and they would need

"all the luck they fairy
worm could provide.

Besting this mighty creature
would not be easy."

You have to stop her.

- "Besting mighty creatures never is."
- No, no. Stop her now.

"The mightiest creatures
of love and of life,

"they, uh, were both born of twin moons

"and therefore understood
the language of the stars,

uh, that formed the be..."

Please, sir, I just need
to know if it's any good.

It's not.

[CROWD MURMURS]

Sorry, everyone. She was
not invited to read that.

And from what little we heard,

she shouldn't be allowed
to read it anywhere.

[LAUGHTER]

Cheap theatrics can't
make up for poor prose.
