Max Fischer: And what does that entail?
Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: It entails that if you fail another class, you'll be asked to leave Rushmore.
Max Fischer: In other words, I'll be expelled.
Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: That's correct.
Max Fischer: Can I see some documentation on that, please?
[Guggenheim hands him his transcript]
Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: Too many extracurricular activities, Max. Not enough studying
Max Fischer: Dr. Guggenheim, I don't want to tell you how to do your job. But the fact is, no matter how hard I try, I still might flunk another class. If that means I have to stay on for a post-graduate year, so be it...
Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: - We don't offer a post-graduate year.
Max Fischer: Well, we don't offer it yet.

Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: It's Fischer!

Herman Blume: Sharp little guy.
Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: He's one of the worst students we've got.

Max Fischer: Good. I just wanted to inform you about what is going on.
[Dr. Guggenheim stares at Max with contempt]
Dr. Nelson Guggenheim: I never took you for an informer, Max.
