KICK BACK.

FIRST THING, I CAN TEACH YOU SOME MANNERS.

I WOULDN'T DO THAT IF I WAS YOU.

MIGHT LOSE A FINGER

AND WON'T BE ABLE TO COUNT TO 10.

WE'VE SEEN VATOS LIKE YOU BEFORE.

YOU'LL BE HURTING SOON.

PONTE TRUCHA, HUH?

I WAS SO WORRIED

THAT THE KIDS WOULD KNOW MORE THAN ME

THAT I'D WAKE UP AT 5 A.M.,

I DOWNED MY COFFEE,

AND I DID THE MATH TESTS.

I FINALLY GOT EVERY CHAPTER DOWN,

AND THIS SEMESTER, THEY CHANGE THE BOOK ON ME.

MATH YOU EITHER LOVE OR HATE.

YOU GOT SOME PROBLEMS, COME SEE ME AFTER SCHOOL.

THANKS, JAIME. SEE YOU LATER.

Girl: LEAVE THE TICKETS AT THE DOOR, OK? BYE.

CAN I HAVE MY SHADES?

YOU'RE IN LOVE, HUH?

WHICH ONE, HUH? LET ME KNOW.

TITO GRANDE.

[SHOUTING]

[SHOUTING]

ANGEL!

ANGEL, HELP US!

STAY OUT OF IT!

ANGEL!

GO GET A TEACHER!

IT'S FRANK GAR-CIA.

BUT WHEN I SAY GARCIA, YOU ANSWER, OK?

ARE YOUR FRIENDS AUDITING?

I AUDITED THEM TO COME WITH ME.

I'M EL CYCLONE FROM BOLIVIA.

ONE-MAN GANG.

THIS IS MY DOMAIN.

DON'T GIVE ME NO GAS.

I'LL JUMP ON YOUR FACE, TATTOO YOUR CHROMOSOMES.

THIS IS BASIC MATH,

BUT BASIC MATH IS TOO EASY FOR YOU BURROS,

SO I'M GOING TO TEACH YOU ALGEBRA BECAUSE I'M THE CHAMP.

AND IF ALL YOU KNOW HOW TO DO IS ADD AND SUBTRACT,

YOU'LL ONLY BE PREPARED TO DO ONE THING--PUMP GAS.

RIPPING OFF A GAS STATION

IS BETTER THAN WORKING IN ONE, QUE NO?

ORALE. I'M A TOUGH GUY. TOUGH GUYS DON'T DO MATH.

TOUGH GUYS DEEP-FRY CHICKEN FOR A LIVING.

SO ORALE. YOU WANT A WING OR A LEG, MAN?

[LAUGHTER]

WHO EVER HEARD OF NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE NUMBERS? ANYBODY.

YEAH. NEGATIVE NUMBERS ARE LIKE UNEMPLOYMENT.

10 MILLION PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.

THAT'S A NEGATIVE NUMBER.

WE'RE GONNA NEED A LOT OF KLEENEX

'CAUSE THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF BLOODSHED.

YOU EVER BEEN TO THE BEACH?

YEAH.

YOU EVER PLAY WITH THE SAND?

YEAH.

FINGER MAN.

[LAUGHTER]

COME ON, FINGER MAN.

YOU EVER DIG A HOLE?

THE SAND THAT COMES OUT OF THE HOLE,

THAT'S A POSITIVE.

THE HOLE IS A NEGATIVE.

THAT'S IT. SIMPLE.

ANYBODY CAN DO.

-2 + 2 = ...

NET HEAD.

ORALE. ANSWER IT.

COME ON. YOU KNOW THE ANSWER.

-2 + 2. FILL THE HOLE.

IF I HAD THAT ON MY HANDS,

I WOULDN'T RAISE IT EITHER.

ORALE. COME ON. A NEGATIVE 2 + 2 = ...

ANYBODY CAN DO IT.

FILL THE HOLE.

-2 + 2 = ...

COME ON. JUST FILL THE HOLE.

YOU CAN DO IT.

YOU GOING TO LET THESE BURROS LAUGH AT YOU?

-2 + 2 = ...

I'LL BREAK YOUR NECK LIKE A TOOTHPICK.

ORALE.

ZERO.

ZERO. YOU'RE RIGHT. SIMPLE.

THAT'S IT.

-2 + 2 = 0.

HE JUST FILLED THE HOLE.

DID YOU KNOW NEITHER THE GREEKS NOR THE ROMANS

WERE CAPABLE OF USING THE CONCEPT OF ZERO?

IT WAS YOUR ANCESTORS, THE MAYAS,

WHO FIRST CONTEMPLATED THE ZERO--

THE ABSENCE OF VALUE.

TRUE STORY.

YOU BURROS HAVE MATH IN YOUR BLOOD.

HEY, KEMO SABE TODO.

THE MAN KNOWS EVERYTHING.

ORALE. KEMO SABE.

ORALE. OK.

PARENTHESES MEANS MULTIPLY.

EVERY TIME YOU SEE THIS, YOU MULTIPLY.

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

SAY IT. A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

SAY IT.

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

AGAIN.

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

I CAN'T HEAR YOU.

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE.

LOUDER!

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE!

LOUDER!

A NEGATIVE x A NEGATIVE = A POSITIVE!

WHY?

MRS. ORTEGA, I DON'T WANT TO BE THE PRINCIPAL

OF THE FIRST SCHOOL IN THE HISTORY OF LOS ANGELES

TO LOSE ITS ACCREDITATION.

Raquel: I'M THE LAST PERSON TO SAY

THAT THIS MATH DEPARTMENT COULDN'T IMPROVE,

BUT IF YOU WANT HIGHER TEST SCORES,

START BY CHANGING THE ECONOMIC LEVEL

OF THIS COMMUNITY.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS MEETING

IS TO REVIEW THE RECOMMENDATIONS

FOR ACCREDITATION.

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

ANYBODY?

YEAH. I DON'T THINK

I SHOULD BE TEACHING MATH NEXT SEMESTER.

I WAS HIRED TO BE A PHYS ED INSTRUCTOR.

AS I SAID BEFORE,

WE LACK THE RESOURCES

TO IMPLEMENT THE CHANGES THE DISTRICT DEMANDS.

MR. SANZAKI, YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST ONE COMMENT.

THIS MAY NOT BE THE RIGHT TIME, TO SAY THIS, BUT...

I'M SORRY, BUT I WON'T BE COMING BACK AFTER CHRISTMAS.

I GOT A JOB WITH AEROSPACE.

[QUIETLY] HOW MUCH MONEY WILL YOU BE MAKING?

LOOK, WE HAVE THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR

BEFORE WE'RE PUT ON PROBATION.

NOW, IF WE FAIL, WE'LL LOSE OUR ACCREDITATION.

IF WE FAIL?

YOU CAN'T TEACH LOGARITHMS TO ILLITERATES.

THESE KIDS COME TO US

WITH BARELY A SEVENTH-GRADE EDUCATION.

NOW, THERE ISN'T A TEACHER IN THIS ROOM

WHO ISN'T DOING EVERYTHING THEY POSSIBLY CAN.

I'M NOT. I COULD TEACH MORE.

I'M SURE MR. ESCALANTE HAS GOOD INTENTIONS,

BUT HE'S ONLY BEEN HERE A FEW MONTHS.

STUDENTS WILL RISE TO THE LEVEL

OF EXPECTATIONS, SEÑOR MOLINA.

WHAT DO YOU NEED, MR. ESCALANTE?

GANAS.

THAT'S ALL WE NEED IS GANAS.

WHAT'S GANAS?

WE WILL BEGIN EACH CLASS WITH A QUIZ.

AW!

AW!

COME ON, WHAT ARE YOU DOIN'?

THERE WILL BE NO FREE RIDES,

NO EXCUSES.

YOU ALREADY HAVE 2 STRIKES AGAINST YOU.

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD

WHO WILL ASSUME THAT YOU KNOW LESS THAN YOU DO

BECAUSE OF YOUR NAME AND YOUR COMPLEXION.

BUT MATH IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER.

WHEN YOU GO FOR A JOB, THE PERSON GIVING YOU THAT JOB

WILL NOT WANT TO HEAR YOUR PROBLEMS,

AND NEITHER DO I.

YOU'RE GONNA WORK HARDER THAN YOU'VE EVER WORKED BEFORE.

AND THE ONLY THING I ASK FROM YOU IS GANAS.

DESIRE. HAIRCUT.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE GANAS, I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU,

BECAUSE I AM AN EXPERT.

TODAY IS MONDAY. TOMORROW'S WEDNESDAY.

FRIDAY IS PAYDAY-- THE WEEKLY TEST.

THERE WILL BE NO DIAGONAL VISION.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON YOUR OWN PAPER.

YOU HAVE 10 MINUTES TO FINISH THE QUIZ.

IF YOU FINISH EARLY, PLEASE WORK ON THE ASSIGNMENT

ON THE BOARD. NO QUESTIONS? GOOD.

ANGEL.

VAMANOS.

I WAS SAID TO GO HERE.

[CHAIR SCRAPES]

NICE KNOWING YOU.

HAVE A GOOD DAY. ARRIVEDERCI.

YOU'RE IN LUCK.

TAKE THE SEAT.

RELAX.

TAKE SOMINEX,

BUT DON'T SLEEP IN MY CLASS.

I TAKE THAT AS AN INSULT.

HELLO.

HEY, KEMO, MAN.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE CLASS.

YOU AIN'T GOT A SEAT. DON'T GIVE ME NO GAS.

YEAH, I KNOW ABOUT THAT.

THAT WAS A MISTAKE. I WANT TO FLY STRAIGHT.

I GOT A LITTLE PROBLEM, THOUGH.

YEAH. ME.

NO. SERIOUSLY, MAN. BOOKS.

CAN'T HAVE THE HOMIES SEE ME HAUL THEM AROUND.

YOU WOULDN'T WANT ANYONE

TO THINK YOU'RE INTELLIGENT, HUH?

SO MAYBE I CAN HAVE 2 BOOKS, KEEP ONE STASHED AT HOME, HUH?

I'LL CUT YOU A DEAL.

I'LL GIVE YOU 3 BOOKS.

ONE YOU TAKE ONE HOME.

ONE FOR YOUR CLASS.

THIS ONE'S BROKEN.

ONE FOR YOUR LOCKER

SO NOBODY SEES YOU CARRYING THEM AROUND.

EASILY UNDERSTOOD? WHAT DO I GET?

PROTECTION, KEMO.

PROTECCION. UNDERSTAND?

I UNDERSTAND.

I UNDERSTAND.

THE ONLY REASON I'M STILL IN KEMO'S CLASS

IS BECAUSE OF THAT, MAN.

JUST DON'T EVER LET HER KNOW THAT YOU DIG HER.

THAT'S THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO WITH A WOMAN.

I'M PRETTY FED UP

WITH THIS PELON WE GOT FOR A TEACHER.

IT'S LIKE ESCALANTE'S GOT A BUG UP HIS ASS.

DUDE'S FROM SOUTH AMERICA, MAN.

HE'S PROBABLY SOME NAZI COME OUT OF HIDING.

DON'T YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING?

GARFIELD'S HAVING A PROBLEM WITH ACCREDITATION.

YEAH, ONLY TEACHERS WHO ACT LIKE ASSHOLES

ARE GONNA KEEP THEIR JOBS.

WHAT IF WE ALL DECIDE NOT TO TAKE THIS TEST?

HE CAN'T FAIL THE WHOLE CLASS.

MUTINY. THAT'S COOL.

[HORN HONKS]

SEE YOU GUYS LATER.

CAMEJO THINKS SHE'S SO HOT

JUST 'CAUSE SHE DATES GABACHOS.

IF WE DON'T DO BETTER TODAY,

HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL.

I'VE NEVER GOTTEN ANYTHING

MORE THAN A B-PLUS IN MY LIFE.

THAT'S BECAUSE YOU TAKE THOSE MICKEY MOUSE CLASSES.

ALWAYS GET AN "A."

HERE YOU GOT A CHANCE FOR A SOLID "D."

YOU GOT 10 MINUTES.

[QUIETLY] WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU?

I'M NOT TAKING THE QUIZ.

YOU DIDN'T TURN IN YOUR HOMEWORK EITHER.

THE GOAT ATE IT.

DON'T DO YOUR HOMEWORK,

DON'T GOT A TICKET TO WATCH THE SHOW.

GIVE HER THE CHAIR, MAN.

CHAIR.

OK, GET BACK TO YOUR TEST.

YOU GOT LESS THAN 9 MINUTES.

NOW YOU'RE THE SHOW.

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU?

YOU'RE A TOP STUDENT.

COME ON.

3:00.

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO IT ANYWAY.

[SPANISH LANGUAGE TV PLAYING]

[COUGHING]

TE VAS A QUEDAR CALVO

SI NO TE METES LA CAMISA ADENTRO DE LOS PANTALONES.

SI. SI. MIRA, HUH?

Woman: MI LINDO JUANITO,

[GLASS BREAKS]

AAH! HA HA HA!

OK, OK, OK.

OK, OK.

OK, OK. GO SEE THE COUNSELOR.

COME ON, KEMO.

GO FIND ANOTHER CLASS. GO TO WOODSHOP.

MAKE YOURSELF A SHOESHINE BOX.

YOU'LL NEED IT.

OK, KEMO.

YOU'RE THE MAN, YOU KNOW?

WHY DON'T YOU PUT THEM IN COLLEGE, HUH?

SO DUMB TACO BENDERS LIKE ME

CAN PICK THEIR VEGETABLES FOR THEM,

COLLECT THEIR GARBAGE,

CLIP THEIR POODLES' TOENAILS.

I MAY BE A SINNER,

BUT I'M WILLING TO PAY FOR MY SINS.

ONE-SHOT DEAL. GO ON, SIT DOWN.

SEE YOU AT 3:00.

GO TO HELL.

I GOT MORE BAD NEWS FOR YOU, PROFE.

I KNOW WHAT I'M GONNA SAY

IS REALLY GONNA TRIP YOU OUT.

MR. ESCALANTE, I FORGOT MY PENCIL.

[LAUGHTER]

HE CAN HAVE MINE.

TODAY'S MY LAST DAY.

NO, NO, NO, NO.

GRACIAS.

BUENO,

DID YOU ENJOY YOUR TAQUITOS?

MUY BIEN, SEÑOR. MUY, MUY BIEN TODO...

EXCEPT FOR ONE THING--

SOMEONE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO ADD.

SHE SHOULD BE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL.

ANITA, VEN ACA, POR FAVOR.

DESPIERTA, MI HIJA.

MIRA, NO MAS. TE EQUIVOCASTE OTRA VEZ.

PAPA, THIS IS MR. ESCALANTE, MY MATH TEACHER.

MR. DELGADO, HOW ARE YOU?

MUCHO GUSTO.

IT'S A PLEASURE. MY WIFE FABIOLA.

MUCHO GUSTO.

MUCHO GUSTO.

CAN YOU SIT WITH US?

SURE.

ANITA, BRING US A COUPLE OF BEERS, PLEASE.

YOU SHOULD GET ANOTHER WAITRESS.

ANA CAN BE THE FIRST ONE IN YOUR FAMILY

TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL,

GO TO COLLEGE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONCERN.

HER MOTHER WORKS HERE.

HER SISTERS, HER BROTHERS.

THIS IS A FAMILY BUSINESS.

SHE'S NEEDED.

WELL, SHE COULD HELP THE FAMILY MORE

BY GETTING AN EDUCATION.

PROBABLY GET PREGNANT, WOULDN'T FINISH COLLEGE.

ANITA, GO HELP YOUR MOM IN THE KITCHEN, HUH?

SHE TALKS ABOUT GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL.

NO.

I DON'T THINK SO.

SHE SHOULD MAKE HER OWN CHOICES.

UN MOMENTO.

YO SOY EL PADRE DE LA NIÑA, NO USTED.

SHE'LL JUST GET FAT.

SHE'LL WASTE HER LIFE AWAY IN A RESTAURANT.

SHE'S TOP KID!

I STARTED WASHING DISHES FOR A NICKEL AN HOUR.

NOW I OWN THIS PLACE.

DID I WASTE MY LIFE?

I WASHED DISHES, TOO,

WHEN I CAME TO THIS COUNTRY.

GOOD!

WHY DON'T YOU PUT ON AN APRON AND GIVE US A HAND?

YOUR HUSBAND COMES INTO MY RESTAURANT, EATS,

THEN HE INSULTS ME.

EXCUSE MY HUSBAND, MR. DELGADO.

HE JUST WANTS WHAT'S BEST FOR ANA.

SHE COULD GO TO COLLEGE, COME BACK,

AND TEACH YOU HOW TO RUN THE PLACE.

PROFESSOR...

I DON'T WANT YOUR MONEY,

AND I DON'T NEED YOUR BUSINESS.

SKIP IT.

TIP.

HE PUTS HOT CHILI IN HIS DIP TO SELL EXTRA BEER.

iORA! iORA! iORA!

KAWASAKI!

KAWASAKI!

YEOW!

DOG, DOG, DOG, DOG.

DOG, DOG, DOG, DOG.

OK...

EVERYBODY LOOK AT THE BOARD.

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE READ FOR ME

WHAT'S ON THE BOARD? ANYBODY.

"JUAN HAS 5 TIMES AS MANY GIRLFRIENDS AS PEDRO.

"CARLOS HAS ONE GIRLFRIEND LESS THAN PEDRO.

"THE TOTAL NUMBER OF GIRLFRIENDS BETWEEN THEM

"IS 20.

HOW MANY DOES EACH GIGOLO HAVE?"

LATE!

LATE!

LATE! LATE! LATE!

OK, OK, OK.

OK, OK, OK, OK.

HOW MANY GIRLFRIENDS

DOES EACH GIGOLO HAVE? ANYBODY.

YOU THINK YOU GOT IT, EINSTEIN?

YOU THINK YOU GONNA DO IT?

JUAN IS X. CARLOS IS Y.

PEDRO IS X + Y.

IS PEDRO BISEXUAL, OR WHAT?

Escalante: I HAVE A TERRIBLE FEELING ABOUT YOU.

KEMO, 5X = JUAN'S GIRLFRIENDS?

YOU'RE GOOD NOW,

BUT YOU'RE GONNA END UP BAREFOOT, PREGNANT,

AND IN THE KITCHEN.

CAN YOU GET NEGATIVE GIRLFRIENDS?

NO, JUST NEGATIVE BOYFRIENDS.

PLEASE FORGIVE THEM,

FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO.

CARLOS HAS X-5 GIRLFRIENDS. QUE NO?

QUE NO? IS RIGHT. QUE NO.

THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYERS!

MAY I GO TO THE RESTROOM, PLEASE?

IN 10 MINUTES. HOLD IT.

SEÑOR MAYA. HIT IT.

IT'S A TRICK PROBLEM, MR. KEMO.

YOU CAN'T SOLVE IT UNLESS YOU KNOW

HOW MANY GIRLFRIENDS THEY HAVE IN COMMON. RIGHT?

IT'S NOT THAT THEY'RE STUPID,

IT'S JUST THEY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING.

I'M WRONG?

X = PEDRO'S GIRLFRIENDS,

5X = JUAN'S GIRLFRIENDS.

X - 1 = CARLOS' GIRLFRIENDS.

X + 5X + X - 1 = 20.

SO X = 3.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

KEMO, THIS STUFF DON'T MAKE NO SENSE

UNLESS YOU SHOW US HOW IT WORKS

IN THE REAL WORLD?

DO YOU THINK WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE

TO GET A COUPLE OF GIGOLOS

FOR A PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION?

NO, NO, NO, STOP.

JUST KIDDING, JUST KIDDING.

WOW!

CHECK IT OUT!

GET OUT OF HERE.

PLEASE!

WHAT KIND OF MATH IS THIS?

THIS PARTICULAR ONE

THAT'S UP RIGHT NOW IS CALCULUS.

YOU'LL GET IT IN COLLEGE.

MY DAUGHTER USES THIS PROGRAM IN HER HIGH SCHOOL.

I WANT TO TEACH CALCULUS NEXT YEAR.

BOY, THAT'S A JUMP.

THAT'S RIDICULOUS.

THEY HAVEN'T HAD TRIG OR MATH ANALYSIS.

THEY CAN TAKE THEM BOTH DURING THE SUMMER.

YOU EXPECT OUR BEST STUDENTS TO GO TO SUMMER SCHOOL?

FROM 7:00 TO 12:00... EVERY DAY,

INCLUDING SATURDAYS.

YEP. THAT'LL DO IT.

OUR SUMMER CLASSROOMS ARE RESERVED FOR REMEDIAL COURSES.

IF YOU WANT TO TURN THIS SCHOOL AROUND,

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO START FROM THE TOP.

MR. ESCALANTE, DON'T LECTURE US.

OUR KIDS CAN'T HANDLE CALCULUS.

WE DON'T EVEN HAVE THE BOOKS.

IF THEY PASS THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT TEST,

THEY GET COLLEGE CREDIT.

THERE ARE SOME TEACHERS IN THIS ROOM

WHO WOULD HAVE TROUBLE

PASSING THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT TEST.

YOU REALLY THINK YOU CAN MAKE THIS FLY?

I TEACH CALCULUS OR...

HAVE A GOOD DAY.

WELL, IF THIS MAN CAN WALK IN HERE AND...

DICTATE HIS OWN TERMS OVER MY OBJECTIONS...

I SEE NO REASON

FOR ME TO CONTINUE AS DEPARTMENT CHAIR.

RAQUEL, DON'T TAKE THIS PERSONALLY.

I'M THINKING ABOUT THOSE KIDS.

IF THEY TRY AND DON'T SUCCEED,

YOU'LL SHATTER WHAT LITTLE SELF-CONFIDENCE THEY HAVE.

THESE AREN'T THE TYPES THAT, UH, BOUNCE BACK.

HAVE A GOOD DAY.

THANKS, MAN.

KEMO, IT STINKS LIKE LAST YEAR IN HERE.

SOMEBODY GIVE CLAUDIA AN ORANGE.

OK, OK, OK. SIT DOWN.

YOU THINK I WANT TO DO THIS?

THE JAPANESE PAY ME TO DO THIS.

THEY'RE TIRED OF MAKING EVERYTHING.

THEY WANT YOU GUYS TO PULL YOUR OWN WEIGHT

SO THEY CAN TAKE VACATIONS ON MOUNT FUJI.

KEMO, I THOUGHT THIS ROOM

WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AIR-CONDITIONED, MAN.

YOU SHOULD THINK...

COOL.

THINK...

COOL.

COOL.

THINK...

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

COOL.

OUT OF THE BLUE,

I GET A LETTER SAYING I WAS FIRED

BECAUSE OF PROPOSITION 13.

I'M DOWN TO $936.

I INVEST 100 IN RESUMES,

AND I BOUGHT THIS SUIT.

I HIT EVERY INSURANCE COMPANY IN THE CITY.

MY WIFE WANTS US TO MOVE INTO HER PARENTS' REC ROOM.

THEN 2 WEEKS LATER I GET ANOTHER LETTER

IN THE MAIL TELLING ME TO REPORT BACK TO WORK.

HOW DO YOU LIKE THE SUIT?

FABULOUS.

HOW ABOUT THE COLOR?

WELCOME BACK, PELON!

YOU OK?

YEAH, I'M OK.

YOU SURE?

YES. I SAID I WAS FINE.

[RIP]

UH-OH.

WE'LL GO STEP BY STEP, INCH BY INCH.

CALCULUS WAS NOT MADE TO BE EASY.

IT ALREADY IS.

REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES WE HAD LAST SUMMER?

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN THINGS WERE REALLY JUMPING GOOD?

YEAH

WELL, THE GOOD TIMES ARE GONE WITH THE WIND.

IT'S NOW THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY.

OH, COME ON. A CONTRACT?

YOU MEAN, YOU CAN'T TRUST US BY NOW?

[BELL RINGS]

FOR THOSE OF YOU MAKING THE COMMITMENT,

YOU WILL BE PREPARING YOURSELVES FOR THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT TEST.

MAKE SURE IT'S SIGNED BEFORE YOU COME TO CLASS TOMORROW.

WE COME AN HOUR BEFORE SCHOOL, TAKE YOUR CLASS 2 PERIODS,

AND STAY UNTIL 5:00?

BELIEVE IT OR DON'T.

WE GOT TO COME ON SATURDAYS?

AND NO VACATION?

PASS THE A.P. EXAM, GET COLLEGE CREDIT.

BIG DEAL.

WE'RE SENIORS.

IT'S OUR YEAR TO SLACK OFF.

HOW ABOUT YOU, JOHNNY?

WILL YOU BE ABLE TO MAKE IT SATURDAY MORNING,

PLAYING IN YOUR BAND FRIDAY NIGHT?

LOOK, YOU LOVE SCARING US INTO DOING STUFF, MAN,

BUT THAT GETS OLD REAL FAST.

HEY, KEMO.

YOU PROUD OF ME?

I'M THE FIRST DUDE HERE.

WHAT'S CAL-CU-LUS?

MOM...

CALCULUS IS MATH THAT SIR ISAAC NEWTON INVENTED

SO HE COULD FIGURE OUT PLANET ORBITS,

BUT HE NEVER BOTHERED TO TELL ANYBODY

ABOUT HIS DISCOVERY

UNTIL THIS OTHER SCIENTIST GUY

TOLD EVERYBODY HE HAD INVENTED CALCULUS.

BUT THE GUY WAS SO STUPID

THAT HE GOT IT ALL WRONG,

AND SO NEWTON HAD TO GO PUBLIC

AND CORRECT HIS MISTAKES.

DON'T YOU THINK THAT'S NEAT?

FOR A GENIUS, NEWTON WAS AN IDIOT.

DON'T WORRY, MOM.

IF I INVENT SOMETHING, I'LL MAKE SURE TO GET PAID.

I HOPE THIS IS NOT AN EXCUSE

TO STAY OUT ALL HOURS?

TRUST ME, MOM. SIGN IT.

BOYS DON'T LIKE IF YOU'RE TOO SMART.

MOM, I'M DOING THIS

SO I DON'T HAVE TO DEPEND ON SOME DUMB GUY

THE REST OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU DON'T GOT IT SIGNED,

YOU GOT NO TICKET TO WATCH THE SHOW.

THANK YOU.

GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING.

MR. BLUE EYES, THANK VERY MUCH.

ELIZABETH, MY TAYLOR.

SOPHIA, MY LOREN.

GET A HAIRCUT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

GET A NEW JACKET. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

CLINT, YOU FORGET YOUR GUN?

UNFOLD IT.

HEP!

GET OUT OF THE WAY. HERE.

YOU DIDN'T SIGN IT.

I GOTTA PUT SCHOOL ON HOLD.

GO BACK UNTIL YOU SIGN IT.

MY UNCLE OFFERED ME A JOB OPERATING A FORKLIFT.

SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS I GET TIME AND A HALF.

SO WHAT?

2 YEARS IN THE UNION AND I'LL BE MAKING MORE THAN YOU.

KEMO, I DON'T WANT TO LET YOU DOWN,

BUT THE MONEY I'LL BE MAKING WILL BUY ME A NEW TRANS AM.

NO ONE CRUISES THROUGH LIFE, PANCHO.

WOULDN'T YOU RATHER BE DESIGNING THESE THINGS

THAN REPAIRING THEM?

YOU CAN'T EVEN DO THAT. THEY GOT FUEL INJECTION.

[GRINDING NOISE]

YOU'RE GONNA STRIP MY GEARS.

ORALE, KEMO.

DON'T PANIC, JOHNNY.

JUST WATCH OUT FOR THE OTHER GUY.

RIGHT OR LEFT?

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

RIGHT OR LEFT?

GO RIGHT! GO RIGHT!

[HORN HONKS, TIRES SQUEAL]

ALL YOU SEE IS THE TURN.

YOU DON'T SEE THE ROAD AHEAD.

ORALE, BUEY.

OPEN THE GATE. WE'LL BE LATE.

WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING HERE SO EARLY?

WE'RE IN ESCALANTE'S CLASS, REMEMBER?

WAKE UP. DRINK SOME COFFEE, MAN.

ONE, YOU GOT THE GRAPH, RIGHT HERE.

TWO, THIS STRIP, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART IS RIGHT HERE.

IT'S THE RADIUS OF ROTATION.

THAT'S IT.

ANYBODY GOT ANY QUESTIONS?

ANYBODY CAN DO IT

AS LONG AS YOU REMEMBER ONE BASIC ELEMENT,

AND THAT IS THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE.

STAY AWAKE AS YOU'RE WAKING UP.

WAKE UP THIS MORNING. HOW ARE YOU?

BRING TOOTHPICKS TO PINCH OPEN YOUR EYES.

YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN?

I WAS SWIMMING WITH DOLPHINS,

WHISPERING IMAGINARY NUMBERS,

LOOKING FOR THE FOURTH DIMENSION.

GOOD! GO BACK TO SLEEP. THAT'S VERY GOOD.

OK, ANY QUESTIONS? YES? NO? NOTHING?

OK.

OK, YOU SHOULD HAVE IT BY NOW.

OK, WHAT'S THE ANSWER? ANYBODY.

CLAUDIA?

COME ON. WE'RE GOING BACKWARDS.

YOU'RE FOOLING AROUND TOO MUCH DURING THE WEEKEND.

THIS GIRL'S GOTTA DO SOME WORK FROM THE NECK UP.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO STAY LATE AGAIN.

OHH...

OHH...

COME ON.

OF COURSE, YOU KNOW WE HAVE PIZZA, 'CAUSE THEY DELIVER.

WE CAN GET FRIED CHICKEN, HAMBURGERS WITH CHEESE.

JEEZ, WE'LL NEED DONATIONS.

NO, REALLY, YOU OWE ME MONEY ANYWAY.

YOU DON'T DESERVE THE GRADES YOU'RE GETTING.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

YOU LATE FOR ANOTHER DATE?

SHE'S GOT MORE BOYFRIENDS THAN ELIZABETH TAYLOR.

I DON'T APPRECIATE YOU USING MY PERSONAL LIFE

TO ENTERTAIN THIS CLASS.

CLAUDIA.

OK, OK.

EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART RIGHT NOW.

MY BOYFRIEND'S FREAKING OUT...

MY MOM... SCHOOL SUCKS.

I'M IN THAT CLASSROOM ALL DAY, KEMO.

LOOK AT MY CLOTHES,

AND MY HAIR-- I CAN'T EVEN COMB IT.

I HATE MY LIFE.

SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

[LAUGHS]

KEMO.

[COUGHING]

PONLA AQUI EN ESTA LINEA.

EN ESTA LINEA.

NO, NO, NO. AQUI.

CALMATE, MI HIJO.

[COUGHING]

ESPERAME AQUI.

SI.

YES. UH-HUH. I UNDERSTAND THAT,

BUT YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO BRING HIM IN.

NO--MA'AM, I'M NOT A DOCTOR.

THERE'S NO WAY.

HEY.

I DON'T DO DIAGNOSIS. UH-HUH.

LOOK, I'M SORRY. WE'LL HAVE--

MIRA.

UH, COULD YOU HOLD A MOMENT, PLEASE?

ARE WE GOING TO SEE THE DOCTOR BEFORE NEXT WEEK?

OK. HOLD ON. SEGURO?

NO.

MEDI-CAL?

NO, TAMPOCO.

WELL, HOW ARE YOU GONNA PAY FOR THIS?

LOOK, IF WE COULD PAY FOR IT,

WE WOULD GO TO A REGULAR HOSPITAL.

I JUST DON'T WANT MY GRANDMOTHER

TO CATCH PNEUMONIA WAITING AROUND.

OK. TAKE A SEAT. WE'LL CALL YOUR NUMBER.

OK, MA'AM, IS SAID YOU'LL HAVE TO BRING HIM IN.

THERE'S NO WAY WE CAN GET AROUND THAT.

I UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO BRING HIM IN.

MM-MMM.

TRY THE SHORTCUT.

THIS IS EASY. BABY STUFF FOR BOY SCOUTS.

MY MIND DON'T WORK THIS WAY.

TIC-TAC-TOE.

A PIECE OF CAKE UPSIDE-DOWN. WATCH FOR THE GREEN LIGHT.

I'VE BEEN WITH YOU GUYS 2 YEARS!

EVERYBODY KNOWS I'M THE DUMBEST!

I CAN'T HANDLE CALCULUS!

THESE GUYS HAVE A BETTER CHANCE

OF MAKING THE A.P. TEST WITHOUT ME.

DON'T LAUGH.

HOW COULD WE LAUGH? YOU'RE BREAKING OUR HEARTS.

DON'T DO THIS, KEMO.

HOW NOBLE-- TO SACRIFICE HIMSELF

FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE TEAM.

DO YOU HAVE THE GANAS? DO YOU HAVE THE DESIRE?

YES, I HAVE THE GANAS!

DO YOU WANT ME TO DO IT FOR YOU?

YES!

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SAY NO!

I'M GOING TO HAVE TO GET TOUGH.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK

RIGHT THROUGH CHRISTMAS BREAK. OK?

THE COUNSELOR WAS JUST HERE LOOKING FOR YOU.

SOMETHING ABOUT SOME COSMETOLOGY CLASSES.

HE SAYS THERE'S 3 DIFFERENT LEVELS--

ONE FOR BOYS, ONE FOR GIRLS,

AND ONE FOR-- I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND.

WHY DON'T YOU GO FIND OUT?

PLEASE, LISTEN, MAN. IT'S COOL.

MY GRANDMOTHER...

CLOCK OUT.

GAME'S OVER. YOU LOSE.

YOU NEVER LISTEN TO NOBODY, MAN.

TE CREES EL MAS CHINGON.

ADIOS.

WHY DON'T YOU, UH,

SEND ME SOME POST CARDS,

OR CALL ME ON THE TELEPHONE.

LET ME KNOW HOW YOU'RE DOING. WE LOVE YOU.

KEMO SABE THIS, CABRON, HUH?

I THINK THAT GUY'S GOT A BIGGER PROBLEM THAN YOU.

TIC...

TAC...

TOE...SIMPLE.

SHE'S A LITTLE SLOPPY WITH HER HOMEWORK.

DAD, GET OFF THE PHONE SO WE CAN EAT.

NO, SHE'S A TOP STUDENT.

YEAH.

YOUR FATHER WORKS 60 HOURS A WEEK,

THEN HE VOLUNTEERS TO TEACH NIGHT SCHOOL FOR FREE.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU, TOO. THANK YOU.

NOW HE'S VISITING JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS

IN HIS SPARE TIME.

CORN AND POTATOES?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LOMO MONTADO,

PIQUE A LO MACHO?

JAIME, I DON'T WANT YOU TO TEACH THIS HOLIDAY.

NO.

NO TEACHING...

PAPA...

THERE'S A PROBLEM IN MY BOOK

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN?

HIS OWN SON HAS PROBLEMS WITH MATH.

GIVE ME THAT BOOK, FERNANDO.

I DON'T WANT ANY BOOKS AT THE TABLE.

GO WASH YOUR HANDS.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

I'LL GET IT.

YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN?

OH, SEÑORA, COMO ESTA?

MUY BIEN.

SEÑOR ESCALANTE,

ANGELITO TIENE QUE REGRESAR A LA ESCUELA.

EL NO PUEDE PERDER SU LONCHE.

NO SE PREOCUPE, SEÑORA.

PASELE, POR FAVOR.

MUCHO GUSTO.

MI ESPOSA.

I'VE SEEN YOU DO A LOT OF UNDERHANDED TRICKS,

BUT BRINGING YOUR ABUELITA TO MY HOUSE

AT CHRISTMASTIME? COME ON.

I NEED CALCULUS

TO TAKE ME TO A GOOD CAREER.

SOMETHING SMELLS GOOD.

iCARAY!

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS

A CHOLO CAME TO ME... ♪

THIS IS WHAT'S GIVEN.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR THE AREA IN THE FIRST QUADRANT

BOUNDED BY THE CURVE.

WHAT ARE THE LIMITS? ANYBODY.

0 TO pi OVER 2.

WRONG. LUPE.

0 TO pi OVER 2?

WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?

THIS IS REVIEW.

KEMO, I CHECKED MY WORK TWICE.

I'M GIVING YOU THE GRAPH. CHECK IT AGAIN.

I GOT THE SAME ANSWER AS THE GORDITA.

DON'T CALL ME GORDITA, PENDEJO.

IT'S 0 TO pi OVER 2, SIR.

YEAH. I GOT THE SAME THING.

YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS. NO WAY!

WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?

THIS IS REVIEW!

YOU'RE ACTING LIKE A BLIND MAN IN A DARK ROOM

LOOKING FOR A BLACK CAT THAT ISN'T THERE!

WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU GUYS?

I DON'T BELIEVE IT!

YOU'RE GIVING ME A SHOT FROM THE BACK!

NO WAY. NO WAY!

[LABORED BREATHING]

[GASPING]

PAGE 456, PLEASE.

COME ON, YOU GUYS. 456.

WILL YOU SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN, MAN?

WE TOLD HIM TO TAKE IT EASY.

IT'S OUR FAULT. WE JUST SIT BACK

AND WATCH HIM BURN IN.

IT'S BURN OUT.

THE MAN BROUGHT IT ON HIMSELF.

HE WAS ASKING FOR TROUBLE.

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?

YOU'RE A WANNABE CHOLO ASSHOLE, MAN.

[SPITS]

OH, THAT'S DISGUSTING.

YOU WANT ME?

I'LL KICK YOUR ASS!

ALL RIGHT, BREAK IT UP!

PANCHO!

JUST BREAK IT UP.

NOW, JUST SETTLE DOWN.

LATER.

SETTLE DOWN, ANGEL.

NOW, MR. ESCALANTE IS OK.

HE SUFFERED A MILD HEART ATTACK,

AND HE'LL BE UNDER OBSERVATION FOR THE TIME BEING.

MR. SCHLOSS IS YOUR SUBSTITUTE.

NOW, OUT OF RESPECT TO MR. ESCALANTE,

PLEASE GIVE HIM YOUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION.

I DON'T WANT ANY MORE TROUBLE FROM THIS ROOM.

ALL RIGHT, PANCHO, YOU COME WITH ME.

ANGEL, LET'S GO.

TITO, TAKE YOUR SEAT.

MR. MOLINA HAS INFORMED ME

THAT YOU HAVE YOUR A.P. CALCULUS EXAM IN 2 WEEKS.

I'LL BE HONEST WITH YOU.

I'VE NEVER TAUGHT CALCULUS BEFORE.

I'M REALLY A MUSIC TEACHER.

YOU MAD AT ME, MOMMY?

IF I THOUGHT IT WOULD HELP, I WOULD BE ANGRY.

DAD...

THE DOCTOR SAYS NO STRESS.

NO JOB-RELATED ACTIVITY FOR AT LEAST A MONTH.

I WANT ANOTHER DOCTOR.

JAIME, I HAVE TO GO.

I LEFT FERNANDO WITH A NEIGHBOR.

I'LL STAY WITH DAD, MOM.

NO. YOU GO WITH YOUR MOTHER.

DON'T FORGET TO TAKE OUT THE TRASH, OK?

OK, DAD.

COME ON, MOM.

WHAT TIME DO YOU GET OUT OF WORK?

HI!

HEY!

MR. ESCALANTE!

I'M STILL ALIVE.

I'M A HARD-DYING TYPE OF GUY.

SHOULDN'T YOU BE IN THE HOSPITAL?

I SHOULD BE HERE WITH YOU.

YAAH!

BULLDOGS!

DOG, DOG, DOG, DOG.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BABY-SITTING.

HAVE A GOOD DAY.

HOW ARE YOU?

HEY, YOU SHOULD BE TAKING IT EASY, MAN.

NO, I SHOULD BE HERE WITH YOU GUYS.

I MEAN, YOU ALREADY FORGOT TO STAND UP. EVERYBODY!

NO, AGAINST THE WALL LIKE A SNAKE. HURRY!

WE'VE BEEN PRACTICING FOR THIS ALL YEAR.

YOU'RE THE BEST!

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!

THIS IS GONNA BE A PIECE OF CAKE!

UPSIDE-DOWN!

AND...

STEP BY STEP!

ALL RIGHT! YOU GOT IT NOW.

OPEN YOUR EYES.

Y = LN...

QUANTITY X - 1. WHAT'S THE DOMAIN?

X IS GREATER THAN -1.

NO! TO THE END OF THE LINE.

I'VE BEEN GONE 2 DAYS, AND YOU FORGET ALREADY.

WHAT'S THE DOMAIN?

ALL REAL NUMBERS GREATER THAN 1. X IS GREATER THAN 1.

I TOLD YOU YOU COULD DO IT.

OK!

BE SURE EACH MARK IS BLACK

AND COMPLETELY FILLS THE ANSWER SPACE.

IF YOU MAKE AN ERROR,

YOU MAY SAVE TIME BY CROSSING IT OUT,

RATHER THAN TRYING TO ERASE IT.

IT IS NOT EXPECTED THAT EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO ANSWER

ALL THE MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS.

WHEN YOU'RE TOLD TO BEGIN, OPEN YOUR BOOKLET,

CAREFULLY TEAR OUT THE GREEN INSERT,

AND START WORK.

YOU MAY BEGIN NOW.

LET'S GO!

COME ON! GET IN!

GET IN!

OH, NO, IT'S TOO COLD!

ANITA! COME ON, ANITA!

ANGEL!

I LIKE TO KEEP MY PANTS DRY, YOU KNOW, MAN?

ANGEL!

COME ON IN!

COME ON!

THE WATER'S GREAT!

COME ON!

OK, FINE!

FINE!

THIS IS SO STUPID, MAN.

I'M COMING!

ANGEL!

COME ON!

COME ON!

[ROOSTER CROWS]

ORALE, GRANDPA.

WE, BEING TEACHERS,

KNOW THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT TESTS ARE VERY DIFFICULT,

ESPECIALLY IN MATHEMATICS.

LESS THAN 2% OF ALL HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS NATIONWIDE

EVEN ATTEMPT THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT CALCULUS TEST.

YOU'VE BEEN DRINKING.

I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE

THAT NO OTHER HIGH SCHOOL IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

HAS MORE STUDENTS PASSING THAN GARFIELD HIGH SCHOOL.

NO. HE JUST WALKS LIKE THAT.

18 STUDENTS TOOK THE TEST.

18 PASSED.

MANY--

WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE.

IT'S ALL RIGHT.

OK.

WE, THE A.P. CALCULUS CLASS,

WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT THIS PLAQUE TO OUR TEACHER...

JAIME A. ESCALANTE.

COME ON UP.

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

[TELEPHONE RINGS]

YES?

THIS IS GUADALUPE ESCOBAR.

WHAT IS THIS, SOME KIND OF JOKE?

WAIT, WAIT A MINUTE. WHO IS THIS?

FOR REALS?

WHAT?

YOU'RE CRAZY, MAN.

"IT'S STANDARD PROCEDURE TO GRADE THE TEST

"WITH THE IDENTITY OF THE STUDENTS CONCEALED.

"ONLY AFTER THE IRREGULARITIES WERE FOUND

"WAS IT DETERMINED THE STUDENTS IN QUESTION

WERE ALL FROM GARFIELD HIGH SCHOOL."

YOU ALL RECEIVED THE SAME LETTER?

YEAH.

YEAH.

"BASED UPON THE UNUSUAL AGREEMENT OF INCORRECT ANSWERS,

"E.T.S. HAS NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO QUESTION THE SCORES

OF ALL STUDENTS WITH SUCH UNUSUAL AGREEMENT."

ENGLISH. WHAT DOES IT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

THEY'RE SAYING THAT WE COPIED FROM EACH OTHER

BECAUSE WE ALL HAD THE SAME WRONG ANSWERS.

WE'RE TOO STUPID TO KNOW HOW TO CHEAT CORRECTLY.

WHY DON'T WE JUST SUE THEM?

"THE BOARD DOUBTS THAT THE GRADES ARE VALID FOR YOU

BECAUSE OF THESE UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES."

THESE PEOPLE ARE HUMAN.

THEY CAN MAKE MISTAKES, TOO.

Ana: KEMO, THESE PEOPLE ARE CALLING US CHEATERS.

ALL RIGHT,

THIS IS WHERE WE KEEP ALL CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL,

S.A.T. AND A.P. TESTS INCLUDED.

I ASSURE YOU, ONLY MY SECRETARY AND I

KNOW THE COMBINATION.

MR. MOLINA, THIS CONTROVERSY

IS OFFICIALLY BETWEEN

THE EDUCATIONAL TESTING SERVICE

AND THE STUDENTS.

IT DOES NOT REFLECT UPON YOUR SCHOOL

OR ITS ADMINISTRATION.

I UNDERSTAND.

WE WOULD LIKE TO RESOLVE THIS

WITH AS LITTLE PUBLICITY AS POSSIBLE.

I'D APPRECIATE THAT.

ALL RIGHT?

YEP.

DO YOU THINK THEY GOT THE TEST AHEAD OF TIME?

WELL, CLAUDIA WAS HAVING EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS.

PANCHO WAS WAY BEHIND.

DO YOU REALLY THINK ANYONE CHEATED?

NO, BUT MY FATHER DOES.

DAMN SHIT!

LOOK AT THIS SHIT!

IF I'D HAVE TAKEN THAT JOB WITH MY UNCLE--

LOOK AT THIS, MAN--

I COULD HAVE HAD A BRAND-NEW CAR BY NOW!

OK, IT'S ALL RIGHT. YOU CAN FIX IT.

COME ON, OK? YOU CAN FIX IT. JUST RELAX.

HEY, I DIDN'T KNOW

YOU TWO WERE, LIKE, A THING NOW.

JUST SOMETHING FOR THE SUMMER.

COME ON, LUPE.

YOU'RE SUCH AN ASSHOLE, PANCHO.

LUPE, WAIT.

[ICE CREAM BELL RINGING]

SHIT!

LOTS OF STARS UP THERE, HOMEY. NOT TOO POLLUTED.

STARS AREN'T REALLY THERE, ESE.

NO, WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT

IS WHERE THEY USED TO BE, MAN.

IT TAKES THE LIGHT

A THOUSAND YEARS TO REACH THE EARTH.

FOR ALL WE KNOW,

THEY BURNED OUT LONG AGO, MAN.

GOD PULLED THE PLUG ON US.

HE DIDN'T TELL NOBODY.

THOSE STARS ARE OUT THERE, HOMEBOY.

I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY.

[CAR ENGINE REVS]

HEY, HOMEBOY.

iALLI TE LLEVO, MI HIJA!

COME ON, THROW ME A KISS, BABY!

HEY!

HEY, TIRAME UN BESO.

[SIREN WAILS]

THAT'S RIGHT. THAT'S RIGHT.

THAT'S ALL YOU KNOW.

WHAT'S THE MATTER, YOU CAN'T AFFORD A KNIFE?

USE A PENCIL, GO TO JAIL.

CAN I HAVE THIS BACK NOW?

YOU GOT A TOUGH MOUTH. YOU BETTER WATCH YOURSELF.

MUCHO GUSTO, OFFICER.

LET'S GO, JACK.

THAT WAS REAL SMART, ESE.

GET AWAY FROM MY RIDE!

GET UP.

COME ON, GET UP!

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

COME BACK.

ANGEL!

WELL...

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY?

ANA...

I'VE KNOWN YOUR FAMILY FOR YEARS.

TELL US THE TRUTH.

NOTHING HAPPENED.

NOW, DON'T LIE TO ME.

NOTHING HAPPENED!

WHY DON'T YOU JUST LEAVE HER ALONE?

SHE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG.

THEN TELL US WHO DID.

WE'RE NOT COPS.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO PUT ANYBODY BEHIND BARS.

IF YOU CHEATED,

LET US KNOW SO YOU CAN GO HOME

AND ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR SUMMER.

PERMISO.

I COME FROM THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

YO VENGO DE ESTE BARRIO.

AND I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES WE'RE TEMPTED

TO TAKE SHORTCUTS.

JUST TELL ME THE TRUTH WHAT HAPPENED.

DIME LA VERDAD.

OK.

WE'RE BUSTED. WHY DON'T WE JUST ADMIT IT?

HOW'D YOU DO IT?

I GOT THE TEST AHEAD OF TIME.

I PASSED IT OUT TO EVERYONE.

HOW DID YOU GET THE TEST?

MAILMAN.

I STRANGLED HIM.

HIS BODY'S DECOMPOSING IN MY LOCKER.

HA HA HA HA HA!

[ALL LAUGHING]

THERE'S NO SENSE IN CONTINUING

IF THEY WON'T COOPERATE.

DO YOU KNOW HOW THIS GOT IN MY BOX?

A LETTER OF RESIGNATION.

ANONYMOUS.

MY GUESS IS IT COULD HAVE SOMETHING TO DO

WITH THE MESS THIS SCHOOL IS IN.

DO YOU THINK THE STUDENTS CHEATED?

MR. ESCALANTE, YOU PUT THESE KIDS

UNDER AN AWFUL LOT OF PRESSURE.

THEY WOULD HAVE GONE TO ANY LENGTHS TO PLEASE YOU.

YOU DIDN'T ANSWER MY QUESTION.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL...

EVERY NIGHT WHEN I GO TO BED,

I WATCH THE TELEVISION NEWS.

I SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE GO ON TRIAL.

THEY DENY EVERYTHING,

OR THEIR LAWYERS SAY THEY WERE INSANE

AT THE TIME THEY DID IT.

A LOT OF THEM GET OFF.

BUT I BELIEVE THAT MOST PEOPLE

WHO GET CAUGHT TODAY ARE GUILTY.

DON'T YOU?

YEP.

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.

YOU BETCHA.

HAVE YOU SEEN MY CAR?

NO.

DO YOU NEED A RIDE HOME?

[MUTTERS]

NO, THANK YOU.

[MUTTERS]

KEMO, LET ME TAKE YOU HOME!

[DOOR CLOSES]

JAIME?

JAIME...

YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT?

I MAY HAVE MADE A MISTAKE

TRYING TO TEACH THEM CALCULUS.

REGARDLESS OF WHETHER

THEY PASSED THAT TEST OR NOT, JAIME...

THEY LEARNED.

YEAH, THEY LEARNED

IF YOU TRY REAL HARD, NOTHING CHANGES.

QUIT.

IF THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE LEFT TO TEACH...

QUIT.

YOU KNOW WHAT KILLS ME?

IS THAT THEY LOST THE CONFIDENCE IN THE SYSTEM

THAT THEY'RE NOW FINALLY QUALIFIED TO BE A PART OF.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I'M LOSING SLEEP OVER THIS.

I DON'T NEED IT.

I COULD MAKE TWICE THE MONEY IN LESS HOURS

AND HAVE PEOPLE TREAT ME WITH RESPECT.

RESPECT?

JAIME, THOSE KIDS LOVE YOU.

[HORN HONKS]

[HONK HONK HONK]

[HONK]

HEY, KEMO!

CHECK OUT YOUR RIDE, MAN. WE FIXED IT UP FOR YOU.

GOING DOWNTOWN, MAN,

TO TAKE ACTION ON THOSE E.T.S. BOYS.

HEY, DAD, CHECK OUT YOUR NEW CAR.

Angel: WE GOT TO TALK ABOUT THE PAYMENTS.

GOLLY!

GENTLEMEN?

MY NAME IS JAIME ESCALANTE.

I'M THE A.P. CALCULUS TEACHER

FROM GARFIELD HIGH SCHOOL.

YES. YES.

I'M DR. PEARSON.

HELLO, DOCTOR.

THIS IS DR. RAMIREZ.

QUE TAL? UN PLACER.

ES UN GUSTO, SEÑOR.

I FEEL I HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW

WHY YOU THINK MY STUDENTS CHEATED.

MR. ESCALANTE,

I'M SORRY YOU DROVE ALL THE WAY OUT HERE,

BUT WE'RE NOT AT LIBERTY TO DISCUSS

THE CONTROVERSY WITH YOU.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE THE TEST, THAT'S ALL.

MR. ESCALANTE,

I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH HERE.

BUT I REPEAT,

THE PROBLEM IS BETWEEN THE E.T.S. AND THE STUDENTS.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE

WHAT KIND OF MISTAKES WERE MADE.

ONCE AGAIN, I'M THEIR TEACHER.

I KNOW MY KIDS.

MR. ESCALANTE, HAVE A SEAT.

NO. NO, THANK YOU.

THERE WERE SOME UNORTHODOX,

EVEN ILLOGICAL COMPUTATIONS

FOR STUDENTS OF THIS CALIBER.

MISTAKES IN SIMPLE MATH.

MAYBE THEY ALL MADE THE SAME MISTAKES

BECAUSE THEY HAD THE SAME TEACHER

TEACHING THEM THE SAME PROGRAM.

I TAUGHT THEM STEP BY STEP,

ALL THE SAME WAY.

LOOK. YOUR STUDENTS AVERAGED FEWER THAN 4 WRONG

ON THE MULTIPLE CHOICE,

WHERE OTHER SCHOOLS AVERAGE, WHAT?

14 TO 18 INCORRECT ANSWERS?

AND MOST OF YOUR KIDS FINISHED THE TEST

WITH TIME TO SPARE.

THEY SHOULD BE REWARDED, NOT PUNISHED.

MR. ESCALANTE, THE EDUCATIONAL TESTING SERVICE

DOES NOT ACT CAPRICIOUSLY.

EVERY MAJOR UNIVERSITY IN THE UNITED STATES

SUBSCRIBES TO OUR SERVICE.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE THE PROOF OF WRONGDOING.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE TESTS.

LET ME REITERATE.

THERE HAS BEEN NO PROOF OF WRONGDOING HERE,

ONLY A SUSPICION OF CHEATING.

IN THIS COUNTRY,

ONE IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY,

NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

IF YOU'RE SO CONFIDENT

OF YOUR STUDENTS' ABILITIES,

WHY NOT ENCOURAGE THEM TO RETEST?

WHY SHOULD I?

IF THEY DON'T, EVERYONE WILL ASSUME THEY CHEATED.

EVERYONE WILL ASSUME THEY CHEATED IF THEY DO.

I WANT TO SEE THE TESTS, PLEASE.

WE'RE GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES HERE.

MR. ESCALANTE, WE'RE PSYCHOMETRICIANS,

THOROUGH TO THE POINT OF BORING.

WE'RE NOT OUT TO GET ANYBODY HERE.

NOT SO FAST. IF THIS WAS A SIMPLE SITUATION

OF 2 STUDENTS CHEATING, THAT'S ONE THING.

BUT BY MAKING A BLANKET ACCUSATION,

YOU'RE SAYING THAT THERE WAS A CONSPIRACY.

EVERY CONSPIRACY HAS A LEADER.

WHO BETTER QUALIFIED TO BE THE LEADER

THAN THE TEACHER?

MR. ESCALANTE, NOBODY'S ACCUSING YOU OF ANYTHING.

NOT ONLY ME.

THE SCHOOL, THE PARENTS, THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.

SCORES THIS HIGH, I GUARANTEE YOU,

WOULD BE QUESTIONED REGARDLESS OF THE SCHOOL.

YES, BUT IF THIS WAS BEVERLY HILLS HIGH SCHOOL,

THEY WOULDN'T HAVE SENT YOU TWO TO INVESTIGATE.

MR. ESCALANTE, I HOPE YOU'RE NOT INSINUATING

THAT WE HAVEN'T EARNED OUR POSITION HERE,

'CAUSE NO ONE'S GIVEN ME A DAMN THING.

I SUGGEST YOU'RE LETTING YOUR EMOTIONS

GET THE BEST OF YOU.

IF NO ONE HAS GIVEN YOU A DAMN THING,

YOU SHOULD NOT BE TAKING AWAY FROM MY KIDS!

THE IDENTITY OF THE STUDENTS WERE CONCEALED

UNTIL IT WAS DETERMINED

THAT IRREGULARITIES EXISTED.

THOSE SCORES WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN QUESTIONED

IF MY KIDS DID NOT HAVE SPANISH SURNAMES

AND COME FROM BARRIO SCHOOLS!

YOU KNOW THAT!

ALL RIGHT. WE'VE BEEN PATIENTLY EXPLAINING OUR POSITION

AND LISTENING TO YOUR COMPLAINTS.

BUT NOW OUR CONVERSATION IS OVER.

THERE'S SOMETHING GOING ON HERE

THAT NOBODY'S TALKING ABOUT,

AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS!

NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO ACCUSE ME OF RACISM.

NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO ACCUSE ME OF RACISM!

I KNOW WELL HOW TO SPELL DISCRIMINATION!

I THOUGHT THIS WAS OVER A LONG TIME AGO.

ARE YOU DOING THIS TO MY KIDS?

THERE ARE 2 KINDS OF RACISM, MR. ESCALANTE--

SINGLING OUT A GROUP

BECAUSE THEY'RE MEMBERS OF A MINORITY

AND NOT SINGLING OUT A GROUP

BECAUSE THEY'RE MEMBERS OF A MINORITY.

MY KIDS COULD TEACH YOU A THING OR TWO.

I'M CALLING SECURITY

IF YOU CAN'T CONTROL YOURSELF.

GO FOR IT.

YOU DIDN'T SHOW ME THE TEST.

YOU DIDN'T PROVE ANYTHING.

MY KIDS DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

I'M GONNA PROVE YOU GUYS WRONG.

I HOPE YOU DO,

BECAUSE THIS IS NOT BETWEEN YOU AND ME.

MAYBE NOT,

BUT IF I CATCH YOU ON THE STREET,

I'LL KICK THE SHIT OUT OF YOU.

YEAH, THIS IS GUADALUPE ESCOBAR.

I'VE DECIDED TO TAKE THE TEST AGAIN.

YOU'RE KIDDING.

KEMO, WE ONLY HAVE ONE DAY TO STUDY.

OK. 8 A.M. ON TUESDAY. THANK YOU.

WHY DIDN'T YOU LET ME TALK TO THEM?

CALL COLLECT. STICK THEM WITH A BIG BILL.

I THOUGHT I'D SEEN THIS PLACE FOR THE LAST TIME.

WE'LL HAVE TO REVIEW

THE ENTIRE COURSE IN ONE SHOT.

YOU MEAN IN ONE DAY?

CAN'T DO IT IN LESS.

MAYBE THEY'LL GIVE US THE SAME TEST.

MM-MMM. IT'LL BE HARDER.

DON'T COUNT ON THAT.

JUST GO, STEP BY STEP, AND PLAY DEFENSE.

DON'T BRING ANYTHING.

NO PENCILS, NO ERASERS, NOTHING.

DON'T WEAR CLOTHES WITH TOO MANY POCKETS.

DON'T LET YOUR EYES WANDER.

NO SPACING OUT.

DON'T GIVE THEM ANY OPPORTUNITY

TO CALL YOU CHEATERS.

YOU ARE THE TRUE DREAMERS,

AND DREAMS ACCOMPLISH WONDERFUL THINGS.

YOU'RE THE BEST.

TOMORROW YOU'LL PROVE THAT YOU'RE THE CHAMPS.

START WITH CHAPTER ONE.

KEMO, WHAT YOU MAKING OVER THERE?

YOU LIKE BRAINS?

GOOD. I WAS AFRAID

YOU GUYS WOULDN'T APPRECIATE IT.

THIS FOOD LASTS FOR 24 HOURS.

YOU'RE AFRAID WE'LL SCREW UP

TOMORROW'S JUST ANOTHER DAY, HONEY.

I'M AFRAID YOU'LL SCREW UP THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.

I'M FRIED.

I DON'T CARE IF I DON'T PASS.

SIT DOWN. WE GOT WORK TO DO.

I'M GOING HOME.

SIT DOWN.

I'M TIRED AND I'M GOING HOME.

OK?

YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING?

I'M GOING HOME. THAT'S WHAT I'M DOING.

THIS STUFF'S ALMOST READY. WHO'D LIKE SOME?

KEMO, LET'S ORDER OUT, MAN.

I WAS JUST KIDDING.

HEY, I HAD TO SEE YOU.

YOU CAN'T EXPECT ME TO BE YOUR GIRLFRIEND

AT YOUR CONVENIENCE.

I'M AN ASSHOLE.

SORRY.

I'M SURE YOU'RE ALL FAMILIAR

WITH THE PROCEDURE.

YOU HAVE 90 MINUTES

TO COMPLETE THE MULTIPLE-CHOICE SECTION.

DO NOT FILL IN ANSWERS BY GUESSING.

WRONG ANSWERS WILL BE COUNTED AGAINST YOU.

YOU MAY BEGIN PART ONE...

NOW.

OK. PENCILS DOWN.

YOU HAVE 90 MINUTES

TO COMPLETE THE FREE RESPONSE SECTION.

DON'T SPEND TOO MUCH TIME

ON ANY PARTICULAR ANSWER.

CREDIT WILL BE ISSUED FOR PARTIAL SOLUTIONS.

OPEN THE BOOKLET.

BEGIN PART 2. GOOD LUCK.

FINISHED?

NO, I'M SORRY. I CANNOT FINISH THE TEST.

WHAT'S WRONG?

I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT AT USC.

IT'S RELATED TO MY SCHOLARSHIP.

CAN'T THAT WAIT?

NO, IT CAN'T.

OK. DID YOU FILL OUT YOUR I.D. CARD?

YES. THANK YOU.

OK...

PENCILS DOWN.

MR. ESCALANTE?

MR. ESCALANTE.

DID YOU HEAR THE NEWS?

WE GOT THE COMPUTERS.

YEP. THAT'LL DO IT.

JAIME, THEY WANT TO GO OVER THE TEST AGAIN,

MAKE SURE THERE'S NO MISUNDERSTANDINGS.

ESTELLE, I'M ON MY WAY TO THE FACULTY MEETING.

THANK YOU.

MISUNDERSTANDING AGAIN?

CAN YOU CALL DR. RAMIREZ?

HE'LL HELP US.

HE'S GOING TO TELL ME THE SAME THING, JAIME.

ALL RIGHT. I'LL CALL HIM.

iCARAY!

YES, THIS IS MR. MOLINA CALLING AGAIN.

I'D LIKE TO SPEAK TO DR.--

YES, I DID.

OH, YOU DO?

YES. YES, I'D LIKE THAT VERY MUCH.

SOME PEOPLE HATE AND EXPECT PERFECTION

SOME PEOPLE LIE AND DEMAND THE TRUTH

GOTTA ASK MYSELF IF IT'S ALL DECEPTION

IS THIS A NATURAL THING

THAT WE ALL JUST DO? ♪

WE TAKE SUCH PLEASURE FROM PAIN

I'M JUST TIRED OF PLAYING THAT GAME

SOME THINGS YOU'VE GOT TO CHANGE

YOU'VE GOT TO STAND AND DELIVER

WITH YOUR BODY AND SOUL

STAND AND DELIVER

JUST GIVE ME SOMETHING TO HOLD

STAND AND DELIVER

IF THE TRUTH CAN BE TOLD

WE CAN MAKE IT TOGETHER

IF YOU STAND

STAND AND DELIVER

SOMETIMES MY MIND DRIVES ME TO DISTRACTION

I WANNA SHUT ALL THE WINDOWS

AND LOCK THE DOORS

EVERY TIME I GET A LITTLE BIT OF SATISFACTION

I SEE OUR WORLD COME TUMBLIN' TO THE FLOOR

I KNOW IN THIS LIFE

YOU GOTTA STAND UP FOR WHAT FEELS RIGHT

EACH DAY AND EVERY NIGHT

YOU'VE GOT TO STAND AND DELIVER

WITH YOUR BODY AND SOUL

STAND AND DELIVER

JUST GIVE ME SOMETHING TO HOLD

STAND AND DELIVER

IF THE TRUTH CAN BE TOLD

WE CAN MAKE IT TOGETHER

IF WE STAND AND DELIVER

STAND AND DELIVER

I KNOW IN THIS LIFE

YOU GOTTA STAND UP FOR WHAT FEELS RIGHT

EACH DAY AND EVERY NIGHT

YOU'VE GOT TO STAND AND DELIVER

WITH YOUR BODY AND SOUL

STAND AND DELIVER

JUST GIVE ME SOMETHING TO HOLD

STAND AND DELIVER

SO THE TRUTH CAN BE TOLD

WE CAN MAKE IT TOGETHER

IF WE STAND

IF WE STAND AND DELIVER

STAND AND DELIVER

IF THE TRUTH CAN BE TOLD

WE CAN MAKE IT TOGETHER... ♪
