TC: What kind of movies do you like to see?

TC: Is there anything you’d like to tell the students of AHS?

LC: That I wish I could meet everybody individually so when I ask for your name don’t worry, you aren’t in trouble, I just want to know your name. This really is a very special high school. Everybody says that here but I’m coming from the outside and it really is a very, very special school. I think Colts Family is for real.
