Reality to Karl! She buried you!
Um. Okay. Okay. My buddies, lookó
He shows Drew the picture of him with his football buddies.
Iíll tell them, I donít know, something. Man, theyíll be so happy to see me, we used to do all this dumb stuffó
óWhy doesnít that surprise me?
We were like blood brothers, manó
Karl! You. Sun. Boom!
Youíre smart, Drew. Help me come up with a good story. Suspended animation. Aliens. Coma, I donít know.

Get some sleep, Karl. Itís the middle of the day.
Karl frowns, straining to figure it all out.
17 INT. CLASSROOM ó DAY 17
Malcolm jabs his finger on the photo of Karl.
Of course I know him!
And thatís why you felt confident enough to post to the newsgroup?
He beat me up all through junior high!
The door flies open, and itís Dwight. Malcolm tries to sink into his desk.
Agent Hackett, I can help your investigation! Iíve got a tapeó
Murdoch enters, grabs Dwightís shoulder.
Dwight, please donít interrupt her.
Itís okay, if itís important.
Murdoch stumbles a little, falling against Dwight. Unnoticed, he pickpockets the tape out of Dwightís pocket.
Iíve got a tape! (he pats his pockets) I swear I had a tape.
Murdoch slips another tape out of his jacket into Dwightís pocket. Dwight grabs it.
I do, Iíve got a tape of this kid youíre talking about!

Dwight, I really need you to get toner. Itís urgent, I need Maggie to copy something for me.
Dwight slams the tape onto Marianís desk.
Iím not going to be stymied by you, sir, Iím serving the interests of justice!
Wonderful. Will you go get toner now?
Dwight heads out.
Iím sorry. (re Dwight) Hypoglycemia.
She nods. Murdoch nods to her and exits the classroom. Marian Hackett smiles at Malcolm.
So. I bet youíre glad you got into this school, Malcolm. Smart kids, no bullies like Karl...
Sometimes I wonder, Maíam. Sometimes I wonder.
