Griffen is redesigning his web site and he doesn't have time to do an
essay assignment for Coach Lawrence's biology class. Caitlin steals a paper
that Dori wrote in college and she gives it to Griffen who uses it as his
own. Griffen is caught and is suspended from school for three days. Dori
and Jim are furious and they take away his car keys and cut-off his Internet
access. Meanwhile, Caitlin begins to skip school in order to take a college
class in the city. She makes herself look older and fools the professor.
In order to provide an excuse for Caitlin missing school, Griffen forges
a sophisticated recording of Jim's voice saying that Caitlin is sick. He
calls the school and plays the recording. Caitlin soon finds herself in
deep trouble when the deception is discovered. Caitlin is expelled from
High River High School. Ross, the vice-principal, tells Caitlin that he
has tolerated her behavior for too long. Ross declares, "You're way past
three strikes here, Caitlin." Caitlin is eventually let back in school,
however, when Jim and Dori talk with Ross and work out a deal. Caitlin is
allowed to return to school, but she faces severe penalties. Nevertheless,
Caitlin is given another fresh start.
1. A portion of Caitlin's opening prologue: "Dreams can come true. And
I'm gonna' make sure that mine do."
2. Jim and Dori are talking to Ross about Caitlin. Ross declares, "She
set an all-time record for missed classes." Dori comes to Caitlin's defense
and responds, "Well, people are always cutting out on her! Throwing her
away when the going gets rough." Jim says, "Dori, it's the same pattern
over and over. Maybe we just haven't been tough enough on her. Dori, maybe
Caitlin doesn't want to change. It seems every time she takes two steps
forward, she takes three steps back."
3. Caitlin explains to Jim and Dori why she was skipping school to attend
the college class. She says, "In high school, it's like I'm sitting at
my desk and the teacher's talking and everything that's coming out of his
mouth means absolutely nothing! You know, in college we're studying artists
from like 3,000 years ago! When I study these guys, I feel like I know
