Takin' Her Back To The Old School - Part 4

Part 4

Hey kids! What time is it??? "It's INFO DUMP time!!!"

As well as getting the back story on Cassie's speech, we also learn that she graduated in 1998 from John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas, and that she gets admitted to the University of Oklahoma in the fall of that year.

(And no, that's not where I went to school... I went to Ball High School in Galveston and did community college for a year.)

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [Taking the off-ramp to Tyler] (CW) "I don't think I ever told you the story behind my graduation speech, and how it ended up all shot to hell." (BG) "You... might have, but go ahead and refresh my memory." (CW) "Well, I was so busy with all the other stuff involving graduation... [Flashback to HS – Dixie Chicks poster on the wall, OU tank top; voiceover] Getting my cap and gown, picking my dress out. Not to mention all the stuff I had to do for college admissions. The fact that I had to write a speech totally slipped my mind. [NSYNC poster on the wall!] Then, at midnight, I suddenly remembered that I never did write my salutatorian address. I was up until 3 in the morning trying to put something together – then I fell asleep at my desk. [Fast forward – mom's nudging sleepy teen CW] It was 12 noon when mom woke me up. The ceremony was in three hours, and I barely had time to throw something together while getting dressed and all. So that's how John Tyler High School's Graduating Class of '98 ended up with a half-assed, lame Salutatorian address. I was pretty much wingin' it up there. (Teen CW) "So... we must move forward... and keep moving forward... Because we... have the power to make a difference in the world. Yeah."
