-You're kind of great, Claire. You do know that.
- Sort of amazing, even.
- Oh, come on!
- I don't need an ice cream cone.
- It's not an ice cream cone.
What's an ice cream cone?
"Here's a little something
to make you happy.
"Something sweet that melts
in five minutes."
I'm completely cool with anything
you want to say or not say.
I don't need it.
Besides, Ben is coming in tomorrow.
- Do you want to hear my theory?
-You and I have a special talent,
and I saw it immediately.
-We're the substitute people.
-The substitute people.
-I've been the substitute person
my whole life.
I'm not an Ellen.
I never wanted to be an Ellen.
And I'm not a Cindy, either.
Although Chucks love me.
- I'm sure they do.
- I like being alone too much.
I mean, I'm with a guy who's married
to his academic career.
I rarely see him.
And I'm the substitute person there.
I like it that way. It's a lot less pressure.
Play this for the loudest kid in the world.
- I'm not used to girls like you.
- That's because I'm one of a kind.
- You don't have to make a joke.
I like you without the jokes.
- Get some sleep.
I have a personnel interview
and if I get transferred, Ben will die.
