School Marquee: "Yearbook Submissions This Thursday Last Day!"
(Emma enters her house and finds Manny, Peter and her parents sitting in the living room.)
Emma: "What's going on?"
Spike: "Come sit down here, honey. Manny and Peter came over here because they're worried about you."
Snake: "It's not just them. Your teachers told me that you're having trouble in school."
Emma: "They're lying."
Snake: "No, they're not, Emma. We want you to go talk to someone: a therapist about why you're not eating."
Emma: (in a irritated tone, raising her voice) "I am eating. There is nothing wrong!"
Peter: "You're hiding food."
Manny: "You've got major psycho mood swings."
Spike: "You're just not you and were worried."
Emma: "And you guys are all so perfect? You take advantage of drunk girls (Peter), you are the drunk girl (Manny), and the last time I checked, you were making out with his mother (Snake.)"
Snake: "Emma, you need to calm down."
Emma: "No, I need to get out of here."
Manny: "You can't go, Emma. We need to get you help."
Emma: (shouting) "You did this! You told them. This is all your fault, Manny!"
Manny: (to Emma about the chore pie chart) Does it have a laundry part on it? Because I'm all out of underwear and this commando chafing is killing me.
(Emma rushes downstairs and starts throwing Manny's clothes on the floor)
Manny: What are you doing? That's my stuff!
Emma: Kicking your sorry butt out, Manny once and for all.
Paige: Another night in the security office.
Alex: Just think of it as mall detention.
Hazel: I shouldn't have dived over the counter for that whipped cream canister.
Alex: If only those German tourists hadn't gotten in the way!
