James Tolkan: Mr. Thorn


  • Mr. Thorn : [Junior enters his new classroom and the students begin laughing at him, while his new teacher Mr. Thorn walks over and rolls his eyes tiresomely]  Oh, no. Not another one. How many kids are they going to make me teach?

    [Junior hands Mr. Thorn his envelope] 

    Mr. Thorn : Well, get in here and find a seat. Go ahead. Come on, come on, come on! Hustle, small fry. I'm not gonna have you holding up my class all year. now, let's move it!

    [Junior sits down at his desk] 

    Mr. Thorn : Now, let's start with a nice easy review to see how much you underachievers remember from last year. Polly, what's 17 times 8?

    Polly : 136.

    [Bows rather smart and sits back down] 

    Mr. Thorn : Good. Richard, what's 72 divided by -9?

    Richard : -8, sir.

    [sits back down] 

    Mr. Thorn : Fine. Murph!

    [cut to Murph picking his nose] 

    Mr. Thorn : Murph! What's 3 plus 2?

    Murph : Mmmmm... 4.

    [Everyone laughs] 

    Mr. Thorn : [sighs]  Murph, you've been in the 6th grade since I started teaching here, I really want to get you out this year. Now, please, please work with me. What's 3 plus 2?

    Murph : 9?

    [Everyone laughs again as Mr. thorn closes his eyes in despair] 

    Mr. Thorn : I can see this is going to be a long year.

    Junior : [angrily]  5, all right? The answer is 5!

    Mr. Thorn : You!

    [walks over to Junior's desk] 

    Mr. Thorn : What're you saying?

    Junior : Uh, I said 5.

    Mr. Thorn : Dandy, I'm glad someone's paying attention here.

  • Mr. Thorn : [Notices Junior entering his classroom for the first time] 

    [Annoyed and overwhelmed]
