Scene 5

Scene 5

  • In the morning, Alex's purple-haired mom tries to wake him up for school.
  • But he doesn't plan on going.
  • His parents think he is tired from being out late and "helping" all night.
  • When Alex finally gets out of bed, he scratches his butt and wanders around the apartment.
  • There's a man named Mr. Deltoid sitting in a bedroom.
  • This man seems to be Alex's "post-corrective adviser," and he warns Alex to behave himself.
  • He says he only wants to save him, but then he grabs Alex's groin really hard.
  • Mr. Deltoid drinks from a glass of water on the bedside table, not realizing that it has dentures in it. Ew.
