Nate: Mr. Rosa! Can we eat lunch in here? Mr. Rosa : Sure, Guys! Mr. Rosa: It's nice to be the sort of teacher kids feel comfortable with... Mr. Rosa: There aren't many classrooms they actually want to hang out in! (Mr. Rosa thinking in his head) Mr. Rosa: Of course, not many teachers are as well liked by the students as I am!... Then again, you've got to be careful they don't like you too much! (The boys are talking loud) Mr. Rosa: You can't let students forget who's boss!.. l'll just give them a firm reminder... "AHEM"! Boys, quiet down or I'll have to ask you to leave. Nate & Teddy : Laughing at what Mr. Rosa told them in his face. Mr. Rosa: Before it's too late. Teddy: Hee hee! Oh, Man! Nate: Good one, Ken! Can i call you Ken?
