      Mr. Hand: C, D, F, F, F. Three weeks we've been talking about the Platt Amendment. What are you people, on dope? Where is Jeff Spicoli? I saw him earlier today, near the first floor bathrooms, is he still on campus? Anyone?
      Mr. Hand: Yes, Desmond?
      Desmond: I saw him outside, near the food machines.
      Mr. Hand: How long ago?
      Desmond: Right before class.
      Mr. Hand: All right. Bring him in.
      Mr. Hand: What is this fascination with truancy? What is it that gets inside of your heads? There are some teachers at this school who look the other way at truants. It's a little game you both play. They pretend they don't see you, and you pretend you don't ditch! Now, in the end, who pays the price? YOU!

        Spicoli: Hey, wait a minute. There's no birthday party for me here! Hola, Mr. Hand.
        Mr. Hand: What's the reason for your truancy?
        Spicoli: Just couldn't make it on time.
        Mr. Hand: You mean you couldn't or wouldn't?
        Spicoli: See, there was a full crowd at the food lines.
        Mr. Hand: Food will be eaten on your time. Why are you continuously late for this class, Mr. Spicoli? Why must you shamelessly waste my time like this?
        Spicoli: I don't know.
        Mr. Hand: I like that. Hmm Hmm. "I don't know," that's nice. 'Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?' 'Gee Mr. Spicoli, I don't know.' That's nice, I really like that. You know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to leave your words on my board for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.
        Spicoli: All right!

          Mr. Hand: Am I hallucinating here? Just what in the hell do you think you're doing?
          Spicoli: Learning about Cuba, and having some food.
          Mr. Hand: Mr.Spicoli, You're on dangerous ground here. You're causing a major disturbance on my time.
          Spicoli: I've been thinking about this, Mr. Hand. If I'm here and you're here, doesn't that make it our time? Certainly, there's nothing wrong with a little feast on our time.
          Mr. Hand: You're absolutely right, Mr. Spicoli. It is our time. Yours, mine and everyone else's in this room. But it is my class.
          Mr. Hand: Mr. Spicoli has been kind enough to bring us a snack. Be my guest. Help yourselves. Get a good one.
