our school gymnasium presented a cocktail of horrors.
From daily humiliation...
...to school-sanctioned violence...
But one day a year, the gymnasium was transformed
into a haven of learning
thanks to a remarkable institution
known as the science fair.
A chance for the student body to come together
in the name of research and progress.
Uh, while some did the bare minimum...
...and others preferred razzamatazz over raw data,
I set out to save humanity from deadly asteroids.
And made it all neatly fit on three poster boards.
The science fair may be a competition,
but when the goal is promoting knowledge, we're all winners.
of the Medford High School Science Fair is...
You've got to be kidding me!
You people are crazy!
You're celebrating mediocrity!

Oh, come on, Shelly.
You still got an honorable mention.
Stop reminding me.
I hate to see him so upset.
Well, give him a little time, he'll calm down.
You don't always win in life, he needs to learn that.
I know, but these are big feelings for a little boy.
They're feelings everybody has.
It's part of growing up.
Somebody's got to teach this kid to swear,
I know losing ain't easy.
I deal with it on the football field all the time.
It's like that big game we had last year against Nacogdoches.
We were down 28 points at the half.
It was raining, it was muddy.
Everybody in the stands had gone home.
But somehow, we managed to claw our way back
to a tie with a minute left.
And then, they threw a Hail Mary,
and the receiver stepped out of bounds,
but the ref didn't see it.
After all that, we lose on a bad call.
Believe me, I was furious.
But I sucked it up,
and I walked across that field and I shook their hands.
I didn't hear a word you said.
So while an animal cell has a membrane,
a plant cell has a membrane and a cell wall.
Sheldon, what are you doing?
Being disrespectful, sir.
Because I'm disillusioned with the school system.
Georgie, do you know what's going on with him?
Actually, I'm trying to ignore it.
Well, get your feet off the desk.
I was sent to see Principal Petersen.
What is it this time?
My voice hasn't changed yet, but my attitude has.
I'll let him know you're here.
Sheldon Cooper's outside.
Who sent him now?
- Givens. - Well, you know what?
Givens needs to man up.
Cooper's a little boy.
It's not hard to handle him.
H-Hold on a minute, just...
Does he know I'm in here?
Attention, students and faculty.
This is Sheldon Lee Cooper.
We're taught that hard work pays off, but that's not true.
I came up with a solution to save Earth
from killer asteroids,
and lost the science fair
to SueAnn Ludlow, and her frizzy hair machine.
But it wasn't just me who lost, we all lost.
The system's broken.
Real innovation isn't valued.
Nowadays, it's all about flash and style.
Luckily, my parents can't afford cable.
I urge you all to rise up.
They can't send everyone to the principal's office.
Chew gum in class, use a number one pencil,
This is Sheldon Lee Cooper signing off.
Live long and prosper.
You better run, you little punk!
I can't believe you sent him to bed without his dinner.
On spaghetti and hot dog night.
- That's rough. - He's got to learn.
Let's talk about something else.
Georgie, how was your day?
My brother told the entire school we can't afford cable.
Good, until I learned we can't afford cable.
I've been thinking, and there's something I'd like to say.
Unless it's an apology, I don't want to hear it.
I'm quitting science.
I'm really getting worried about Shelly.
Acting out, and now quitting science?
Oh, I'm sure he'll get right back to it.
I've quit smoking and gambling plenty of times.
Hmm. Look in my purse.
Nothing but cigarettes and scratchers.
Maybe he should talk to somebody.
I meant a professional, George.
But way to be a dad.
Thank you for seeing us on such short notice, Doctor.
Do you remember me?
I remember everything.
Uh, you two, make yourselves comfortable.
Me and my main man Sheldon are gonna go
have a little chitchat in my office.
I don't like chitchat, and I'm not your main man.
Now, Sheldon, I understand you've changed your mind
about being a scientist.
And you're gonna say I can't?
No. I think that's great.
- You do? - Yeah.
I think it's important to keep your options open.
Let me tell you a little story
about an extremely smart young boy.
For the longest time,
I thought I was gonna be
a professional figure skater.
And then you became disenchanted with the field like I did?
Someone skated right over my foot.
I'm not sure that's the same thing.
I'd say you lost your passion the way I lost my big toe.
Don't draw in that.
Hey. We're all done.
- How'd it go? - Great.
I feel a lot better.
Well, that's just wonderful.
So, you're going back to science?
No. In fact, I'm going as far away from science as possible.
I plan to pursue the arts.
I've decided to become an actor.
Why's he want to study acting?
The doctor encouraged him to try something different.
Maybe he'll learn to act normal.
How about you learn to act nice?
You people don't appreciate my sense of humor.
As long as he starts behaving himself in school,
I don't care what he does.
You know, I actually did a little community theater
I had a good part in Oklahoma.
♪ I'm just a girl who can't say no. ♪
♪ 我就是一个无法拒绝的女孩 ♪
To, uh, eating her vegetables.
But I'm pretty sure doing plays
is just an excuse to change in front of each other backstage.
- Really? - Yeah.
Theater folk just love to take their clothes off.
How many people saw you naked?
- Mom. - Enough.
Y'all don't understand my sense of humor, either.
Hello. Are you Mr. Lundy?
My father is Mr. Lundy.
Well, then what should I call you?
My father's dead.
I was told you're the head of the drama department.
Mm-hmm, and the girls' volleyball coach,
which, between us, is the real drama department.
I'm interested in becoming an actor.
You've come to the right place.
You know, I-I've been a professional actor
for years and years.
Really? What have you been in?
Well, have you seen the mattress madness commercials
I'm soft and firm
in all the right places.
Wow. You're famous.
And I was Carbucketty
in the Dallas-Fort Worth Players production of Cats.
No, I'm afraid of cats.
Well, you realize the cats are just the actors.
I still wouldn't risk it.
You're an odd boy, but you make it work.
Anyway, uh, auditions are next week.
- You're welcome to come on by. - Excellent.
I checked out a book on acting
so I should have the hang of it by then.
Well, I like that confidence.
Thank you. Most people find it off-putting.
To master acting, I immersed myself
in all forms of the genre, from silent films
to modern classics...
...to logic-defying experimental work.

What are you looking for?
It's a piece of jewelry.
In my acting book, there's an exercise
where you look for a missing brooch in a convincing way.
According to the story, it was given to me by a friend
so I could afford to stay in drama school, but now it's gone.
Well, good luck finding it.
You really believed I was looking for something.
Oh, where the heck is that brooch?
and you can change,
everybody can change.
That was a-a lovely reading from Rocky IV.
All right, Mr. Cooper.
The stage is yours.
I'd like to begin with a monologue from King Lear.
I believe you're supposed to say "Break a leg."
Poor naked wretches,
whereso'er you are,
that bide the pelting of this pitiless storm.
How shall your houseless heads and unfed sides,
your looped and windowed raggedness defend you
from seasons such as these?
Oh, I've ta'en too little care of this.
Take physic, pomp.
Expose thyself to feel what wretches feel,
that thou may shake the superflux to them
and show the heavens more just.

Hey. How'd the audition go?
Great. I got the lead.
I need to go learn my lines.
Now, I was a little unsure at first,
but Sandy Duncan does play Peter Pan,
so when you think about it...
Connie, you're not helping.
I want to talk to you about this play.
I'm excited about it, too.
You know, if you play the part of a girl,
people might make fun of you.
Mr. Lundy's trying to push the boundaries
of drama in East Texas.
One way to do that is cross-gender casting.
Let me rephrase that:
if you play the part of a girl, people will make fun of you.
In Shakespeare's time, the men played all the female parts.
No one made fun of it.
If Shakespeare went to public high school,
it'd be a different story.
You know, Sandy Duncan plays the part of Peter Pan...
Yeah, yeah, I heard.
I'm trying to protect you, son.
I appreciate that.
You're a football coach.
Isn't it your responsibility
to put in the best player for the job?
Well, I want to do this,
and Mr. Lundy said I was the best.
Can you at least wear pants instead of a dress?
I'll give you a definite maybe.
Okay, who's excited?
I don't want to see Sheldon's stupid play, it's humiliating.
That's why I want to see it.
We're going to support your brother.
Not another word about it.
Can we at least sit in the back?
Okay, everybody, ten minutes to curtain.
好了 大家 还有10分钟就开演了
No smiling, girls, it's a hard knock life.
姑娘们 不许笑 生活很艰难
How you doing, Mr. Cooper?
You in touch with your inner Annie?
Good. It's a packed house.
Wha-- oh, what the heck?
Katie? Katie. You're an orphan,
凯蒂 凯蒂 你是孤儿
sweetheart, not a coal miner.
Let's tone that down, hmm?
What are you talking about?
The play, I can't do it.
There are too many people out there.
Oh, that is just stage fright.
That's completely normal.
No, this is a full-blown panic attack.
All right, listen to me.
You're feeling scared.
I get that, but what you have to understand
is you're not going out on that stage alone.
Everybody, gather around, hmm?
have you ever been to the circus?
I had a panic attack there, too.
the trapeze artist always performs with a net
to catch him, to protect him.
And you are protected by everyone standing here.
Nothing can happen to you out on that stage,
because we're a team.
We are your net.
Sheldon, come here.
deserves to see you shine.
Mr. Lundy gave a compelling speech.
The audience did deserve to see what they came for,
an eager boy bravely taking on
the role of Little Orphan Annie.
You're looking for a knuckle sandwich.
And in that respect, they were not disappointed.
Pipe down, all of you.
It's all right, Molly.
I'd tell you how an East Texas audience in 1989 responded
to a grown man playing Annie,
but I think you know.
