Present Trent: No, why is Tischy my girlfriend? I don’t understand it.

[Cut to Trent after 10 years]

Trent after 10 years: Man! You still don’t think you’re cool enough to get a girl like Tischy? Well, maybe you should talk to somebody who you think is cool. [Trent after 10 years disappears from the mirror]

[Cam Thornton appears in the mirror]

Cam Thornton: Hey, it’s me, Cam Thornton, the coolest kid in your highschool 10 years from now. Back then I wouldn’t even talk to you but now you’re my boss.

Present Trent: Cool. Do you know my girlfriend?

Cam Thornton: Tischy? [Cut to Cam Thornton] Yeah, I’m glad you brought that up. Do you know why you’re so into her? Cause no one at work can figure it out.

[Cut to Present Trent]

Present Trent: No, I thought like maybe in the future that sort of girl is like super desirable or something?

[Cut to Cam Thornton]

Cam Thornton: Tischy? No man, she’s crazy. You must really love her. I mean, you stayed with her after she burned down your house all those times.

[Cut to Present Trent]

Present Trent: What do you mean all those times?

[Cut to Cam Thornton]

Cam Thornton: You’ll find out. Anyway, see you in 10 years. [Cam Thornton disappears from the mirror]
