[Bailey joins Michael]

Hi, Bailey.

Bailey Gismert: Okay.

Michael Che: Bailey, are you going to look at me?

Bailey Gismert: Okay. Hi, Michael. How are you? Are you fed now?

Michael Che: All right, Bailey. So I heard you got to preview a lot of summer movies. That’s pretty cool.

Bailey Gismert: Yeah. Like so I got to see the live action remake of ‘Aladdin’.

[Cut to Bailey. There is a picture of Aladdin movie’s poster at the right side. And to be honest, I thought it was random. Like, I’ve never seen any of that happen in real life. No. Like, okay, first of all, that’s not what a lamp looks like. It’s not. It’s not. And like also you’re like rubbing it? Ew, Aladdin, you’re so random.

[Cut to Michael and Bailey]

Michael Che: All right. Well, why don’t you tell me about a movie you actually liked?

Bailey Gismert: Okay, yeah. [Cut to Bailey. There is a picture of Detective Pikachu movie’s poster.] I guess ‘Detective Pikachu’ was like lit. Like, because like that movie makes sense to me like, right? Because Pikachu was so good at pokemon. But now he’s working up the ranks to detective. Like I don’t know. Like, Pikachu can get it.

[Cut to Michael and Bailey]

Michael Che: Wait, Baily, do you like Pikachu?

Bailey Gismert: Yeah, like as a detective.

Michael Che: Well, it sounds like you have a crush on him.

Bailey Gismert: Okay, stop. Don’t—[Cut to Bailey] Michael, don’t. Don’t. I’m serious. Okay? Yes, he’s smart. He’s hot. He has a good job. And yeah, like short guys are usually funny. But if you say I like Pikachu he’s going to find out because he’s like a really good detective.

[Cut to Michael and Bailey]

Michael Che: Bailey, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make you upset.

Bailey Gismert: No—I’m fine. [Bailey is breathing heavy] I’m just like—running on fumes. And I know like know that it’s kind of an easy week for you because like the Jonas Brothers wrote most of the show. [Cut to Bailey] But I actually do like everything for myself. Like spirit club. And comb my horse. And like on top of those two things, like at some point this week I have to like walk an old woman.

[Cut to Michael and Bailey]

Michael Che: Walk an old woman? Why?

Bailey Gismert: For my service project. Michael, God. [Cut to Bailey. Bailey is very upset.] And like on top of all that the senior lock-in ended early because like a girl slept on the bleachers and fell through a crack. She didn’t die but she’s like not going to college.

[Cut to Michael and Bailey]

Michael Che: Yeah. Well, Bailey, I think it’ll all work out. You’ve got a bright future.
