Bully on the Bus

- Oh, hey guys.
- Yeah.
Don't mind me.
I'm just gonna live here.
- Hey, monkey.
- Hey.
- Sorry I'm late.
- Yeah.
I'd ask how your day was but I just walked past Yeah.
And your father was in our yard today with his metal detector.
Aw, you're kidding.
- Did he dig again? - Yep, four-foot hole.
Found a nickel.
I should sprinkle a roll of quarters out there.
He'll dig us a pool.
What else? What else happened? Oh, some kid on Ally's bus has been picking on her.
- Do you want two pieces of chicken or - Wait a minute.
- Somebody's picking on Ally? - It's nothing.
- Some kid calling her names.
- Oh, no.
Well what kind of name does he call her? It's nothing.
Kid stuff.
Kids are the worst.
All right.
What bad thing rhymes with Ally? Pally? Crally? Schnally? - Finale? - Yeah, Ray This is how bullies work, Debra.
They find a word that rhymes with your name and then you're that until college.
Trust me.
I grew up with the name Raymond.
What rhymes with Raymond? How about, Layman, Gayman, Go-away-man? I still don't see the humor.
Oh, did you do that yourself? They're coming! Guess what Debra just told me.
To come in here and flap your gums when there's two minutes left in the game.
Some kid's been bullying Ally.
What are you talking about? Who? Who is it? Who's doing it? I don't know.
Some older kid.
He's picking on her, calling her names.
Oh, boy.
Well, at least Ally's name doesn't rhyme with anything bathroom related.
Unless No no, you're clear.
This really bunches my shorts.
What, you care? Hey we're talking about my granddaughter here.
- Of course I care.
- Like you cared when we got bullied? "Stop crying, people are looking at us.
" Yeah.
"These aren't my kids.
" You never helped us.
Ally's a girl, Nancy.
Deb, what's this about Ally being picked on? She's fine.
It's just some boy on her bus.
- A boy? - All right.
Let's get him.
Wait, what what do you mean? We'll figure something out in the car.
Let's roll.
Yeah, I can run a check to see if the family has any outstanding warrants.
Ray Can't we even run a check? Listen, that's really nice, but you guys don't have to saddle up and form a posse.
- Debra doesn't get it.
- What? What don't I get? What it's like to be picked on.
Oh yeah, you were popular.
Yeah, we know what a big deal this is to Ally 'cause we went though it.
- Especially on the bus.
- Oh, the bus.
Wedgies, wet willies.
Who's Wet Willie? They would wet their finger and stick it in your ear.
It was chilly.
Hey, get away from that there! You're supposed to warn me when he's next to me.
What? Why are you still here, Frank? You said you were coming across the street - to read the twins a bedtime story.
- I did.
And when Hansel and Gretel got away from the witch, I got inspired and stayed here.
Hey Ma, did you hear? Ally's being bullied.
- What? - Yeah, some kid named Todd Feeney.
Feeney? Got it.
I'll take care of it.
Wait, what do you mean? Wait wait wait.
- "Take care of it"? - I'll call his mother.
Don't worry.
I'm very good at this.
All right, wait.
Listen, Ally will be fine.
She's a very strong little girl.
No she's not.
She's got arms like twigs.
I didn't mean Look, I appreciate that you all care about her.
I do, but enough, really.
What are we supposed to do, nothing? Yes, Ray, nothing.
How about we don't interfere and let her live her own life? Maybe we could set an example.
An example for who? - Hey, Ally, waiting for the bus? - Yeah.
I didn't get a chance to say have a good day before, you know, with Mommy all around.
So, I thought I'd come out here.
- So, have a good day, there.
- Okay.
Hey, who is this? Todd Feeney? No.
- This Todd Feeney? - No.
Now that I'm all the way out here, why don't I wait for the bus with you? - Yeah.
- Okay.
Great, good.
Waiting for the old school bus.
I remember this.
A long time ago, though.
I remember waiting for the bus to be invented.
That's how long ago that was.
You know what else I remember as a kid? That not all the kids were nice.
- Bye, Daddy.
- Wait, Ally.
I wanted to also tell you that Okay, bye, Ally.
Have fun.
I love you.
Hey, I'm sorry, did I get you? No no no, not really.
Hi, I'm Ally's dad, Ray.
Nice to meet you, I'm Dottie.
Nice looking ride you got here.
You need something? Yeah, no no, I just wanted to say good morning.
And, oh, one thing.
I heard something about a little problem between Ally and another child.
- Oh, yeah, right.
- Okay great.
Good, I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of the situation.
- I am.
- Okay.
Okay, good.
Do you want to ride with us today? Oh, no.
No no no.
No no, yeah? Yeah? Behind the white line.
- Hi, honey.
- What are you doing? Going for a ride.
Hi there.
Mind if I sit with you? Saved.
What? Saved.
Oh, okay, fair enough.
Is this saved also? Okay, look, is that allowed, 'cause I can't drive until everyone's seated.
She won't let me! So, another day, huh? Another day, right? Yeah, school sucks.
Like math.
Give me a break.
When are you ever gonna use that? How 'bout never? Hey, do you know which kid is Todd Feeney? Hello.
Look, how 'bout I give you a dollar if you tell me which one Todd is? Okay.
Thank you.
You had your chance, missy.
Did you fail the sixth grade like a thousand times or something? No.
Okay, well, thanks for letting me ride along.
Kinda wish there had been some bullying so I could have put a stop to it.
Oh, she would never do anything with you on the bus.
She? No, I'm talking about Todd Feeney.
Todd Feeney? All he's ever done is defend his little sister Judy.
- What? - Ally's been picking on Judy Feeney.
Ally? My Ally? Ally Barone? Yeah.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute.
This one? The little ballerina here? Yeah yeah.
They're all angels.
Are you sure that it's Ally making the trouble? 'Cause if you're looking in that mirror, everything's reversed.
Judy Feeney wears these big thick glasses and your little Ally says she looks like an owl.
Okay, well So she, uh, hoots at her.
And she goes "Judy Hooty, she's got cooties.
" Oh.
The kids like to find a word that rhymes with someone's name.
And when they do, they just never let up.
I know, I know.
I thought you left for work without kissing me goodbye.
I rode the bus to school today with Ally.
- You did? - Yes.
And Ally's the bully.
- What? - Dottie told me Wait wait wait, Dottie? The bus driver, take an interest.
Anyway, she told me that Ally has been picking on this little girl with big glasses, calling her an owl.
"Judy Hooty.
" Rhyming.
That's your reaction to your daughter's a bully, huh? No, it's not right and I'll talk to her.
That's it? You seem pretty laissez-faire about this.
Laissez-faire? She's just being a kid.
That's what kids do, honey.
No, not all kids.
Not me, not Robert, not little Judy Hooty, who's been accused of having cooties.
I think you're overreacting.
I don't think you know your daughter.
Yeah yeah, cute little face, blonde hair.
That's her cover! Right, she seems harmless, okay, yeah.
She's like the fish that disguises itself as a rock, you know, and then you swim by blaugh! She's a normal kid, Ray.
No, normal kids don't pick on other kids.
What are you talking about? You were a kid, you know.
The bus, the playground, those are all tough places.
Well it turns out they weren't so tough until she showed up.
Oh, please, Ray.
That's right, just walk away.
I don't like to point a finger, but she's this way because of you.
- Excuse me? - That's right, you heard me.
You're the role model for her, not me.
- I'm not the woman here.
- Oh no? Ah, see, right there.
That's what I'm talking about.
That attitude.
That smarty-pants, stick-up-for-yourself, don't-take-any-crap- from-anybody You're accusing me of teaching my daughter to be self-confident? That's right! Every jerk I ever met was self-confident.
Yeah, not every jerk.
Listen, I know the idea of being independent is very different than the way your mother raised you Hey hey hey, never mind what my mother did, okay? At least I didn't turn out pushy and mean like What? Me? You think I'm pushy and mean? You want to push me right now, don't you? Yeah, you'd probably tattle.
Boy, I'll tell you.
Good thing we didn't know each other when we were little.
I wouldn't have liked you.
I wouldn't have liked you either, okay? Yeah, standing in your little groups at school making fun of the kid whose mom showed up with his snowpants.
Snowpants! There was a good chance of snow! See, you're bringing Ally into the family business.
Debra Barone's Ass Kicking Incorporated! Pushing people down since 1972! Yeah yeah yeah.
That's better than working at Ray's House of Wuss.
You want her to be totally dependent on you.
- No I don't! - You rode her bus today! Yeah, you taught her to be self-confident and now she's hanging kids out the bus window by their ankles.
I told you that I would talk to her about picking on that little girl when she gets home.
No, you don't talk to her, you'll spin it.
I'll talk to her.
Don't you have to go to work or someplace? Yeah.
And you can forget about the kiss goodbye.
Oh no, what'll I do? - You'll miss it, baby! - Oh yeah.
Hey, Layman, Gayman, Go-away-man! Bully! You bully! Relax relax.
Debra, Debra, lovely wife.
Why am I stuck with you for life? Sounds like you've had that one for a while.
Maybe, why, what? You want one off the top of my head? - Yeah.
- Yeah? You're a stupid idiot stinker BM! Ally? What are you doing? Trying to get to her before I can? No.
What are you doing looking outside? I was looking for your information, there's a shrubbery thief going around.
Aw, crap! We were just on our way to the market, and I - what's wrong? - Nothing, what do you mean? I sense tension and anger.
Maybe you're picking up your own scent.
We're fine, Marie.
Raymond? Ally's the one that's been bullying the kids on the bus.
- Oh my - Oh yeah? Good for her! What did she do? Never mind, and it's not good.
Hey, there you are! Hey, tiger! All right, all right, Frank, Frank.
Honey, I need you to come over here and sit down for a minute.
"Ally bomaye! Ally bomaye!" Stop it, Frank.
Have you been picking on other children? Marie! Ally, Dottie told me that you've been making fun of Judy Feeney.
Why were you on my bus today? Because Daddy loves you very much.
Yech! All the kids were making fun of me on the ride home.
Which ones? Give me their names.
- Look what you did.
- They were making fun of you? Yes, they kept saying "Baby Ally and her dorky daddy.
" You're dorky Daddy.
Honey, I'm sorry.
Look I was just trying I didn't know Do I have to ride on the bus tomorrow? Look, sweetie, in a couple of days those kids will forget about it and they'll move on to something else.
I'm gonna make up a mean song about Judy! - Oh honey, we don't sing mean songs.
- All right, Marie, please.
Ally, I know I told you to stick up for yourself But, but Yeah, so, I'm gonna make fun of Judy Hooty and then all the other kids will laugh at her.
You're doing a good job with her.
Honey, we need to talk, okay? - Okay, you want to? - No, you go ahead.
You were right.
You should do it.
Um Okay, honey, you see you saw today that it's not fun to get picked on, right? And, um, you know, there are a lot of bad kids out there and you should stop being one.

- I did not.
- Yes you did.
You just said All right, fine! There are a lot of great kids out there, and you should try to be like them.
All right, Ray, stop.
What Daddy's trying to say You don't have to interpret for me.
- What Mommy is trying to say - Ray! See? You don't like it.
Do you understand what I'm trying to say, Ally? There's a kind of fish that looks like a rock Oh, Ray, would you stop? My God.
Do you think I'm bad? - No! - No no! - We're bad.
We're the bad ones.
- No no no! Nobody's bad, Ray! You don't say that! - I'm saying she's not bad! - If you'd read a book once in a while - you'd know how to talk to her! - Read a book, yeah.
