Your'e running for president? In your first week here?
Who is that? If he wants to talk to us, why doesn't he just come into the room?
Just a reminder --the election for the eighth grade president will be held on Tuesday , September twenty sixth. The Position is open to all eighth graders.So far only one name has been placed in nomination -- Capricorn Anderson--Thank You.
Remember me , Cap ? I'm Zach and this is Naomi . Now you know us . It's only a matter of time before you get to meet everyone else in the school.
I'm not very good at remembering names.
The bus driver falls from his seat and groans.
Where's the hospital??
In this scene, Hugh and Cap are eating lunch. Suddenly, They hear the announcements come on and they say that Cap is running for 8th grade president. Cap is confused , but not because of his name being called, but because of the announcer. Hugh is confused becuase he did not think Cap would run for president so early on into the school year.
In this scene, Cap had just given his speech for being president. After, Zach introduced himself and Naomi. Zach told Cap that he had to learn everyone's name. Cap was shocked he told Zach he wasn't good at remembering names.
To be honest, I'm kind of impressed Darryl. I never knew you could get that speed out of that fat caboose of yours.
Violence is not the answer.
In this scene, Mr.Rodrigo had just had a heart attack. Cap comes to the rescue and drive Mr.Rodrigo to the hospital.Cap becomes more popular after driving the bus. Hugh then becomes jealous because of his popularity. We learn here that you can change due to more information. Hugh states after Cap says it felt good to be liked by so many people, "I recoiled as if he slapped me. Being liked was a feeling I didn't know. That I might never know. And that to be rubbed in my face by my one kindred spirit, by the only person around who was more of an outsider than I was--it was the ultimate insult." and in another quote he says "I was finished with Capricorn Anderson." I know he changed his mind about being Cap's best friend when he said this because he said he was finished with him and he thought Cap was doing it on purpose.
In this scene, Hugh and Zach team up to get Cap off of his throne. Hugh and Zach make a plan to make Cap wear their rival team's jersey at their own pep rally so the football team could tackle him. They're plan works out and Cap gets tackled by the whole football team and has to go to the nurse.
Darryl goes up to Zach and accuses him of setting up the fiasco at the pep rally. Zach acts like he didn't do it and insults Darryl. Darryl gets angrier and decides that he wants to physically fight with Zach. Instead he hears a voice saying that the answer to their problem was not violence. Darryl hits the person who says that which is Cap. When he does that, he immediately regrets it. We learn here that the more information you receive can make you decide that your choices or thoughts were wrong. Darryl proves this by saying in chapter 21 , " My own best friend, the guy that i admired so much I wanted to be like him--How many times had I gone there to be his sidekick and Yes-man to tell him what he wanted to hear? Well he wasn't going to want to hear this. " With this quote he says he remembered the times he went there to be by his side , but now things were different because he knew that Zach set everything up. It's saying that at first he was good with Zach but he learned with more info that he was not good.
It's time for my knuckles to take over.
In this scene, Cap goes into an ambulance because rain is there to pick him up. Rain got out of the rehabilitation and said she wanted to pick up Cap immediately and so she does. The crowd in the eback represents the students watching as Cap is whisked off back to Garland. They think that he was injured badly and he has to go to the hospital because of it , but that is not the problem at all.
