Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) (1999) s01e02 Episode Script

Enter Uchiyamada

My adrenaline's always flowin' So it feels like I'll overheat Even if I explode and turn to ashes I'll probably still be laughing Just like this Blowing past the town To the ends of the world Let's burn rubber And die together like lovers Let's cut loose until We reach our limit So we can reach the horizon Crash! Into the rolling morning Flash! I'm in the coolest driver's high Toward the finish line I am standing in front of the building where the employment exam for teachers took place.
Hey! I ended up coming here because I was bored.
Weren't you supposed to take an exam today? Exam? What the hell is that? Don't you have to take an exam to become a teacher? That's what an amateur would think! If you're a favorite, you automatically-- I learned you need more than student teaching to become a teacher.
Right.
You need to pass this exam to become a public school teacher.
It's given for those becoming teachers but don't have the knowledge.
Airhead.
Okay, the next news.
It's over.
Everything.
Goodbye, high school girls in miniskirts.
Goodbye, dangerous extracurricular classes.
I'm gonna die.
It takes just one shot.
Hey, Eikichi.
Are you okay? Come on, hang in there! Ryuji? Just forget it.
Teachers don't get paid much and their career is full of troubles.
If you want to find a girl, it doesn't have to be at school.
You will find lots.
Do you want to work with me? I think that selling used cars to individuals would be good.
If we import from America, we'll make megabucks.
Are you listening? Let's pair up just like before.
Sorry, Ryuji.
Having tried student teaching I realized that I am not the teacher type.
I get sleepy reading textbooks.
Other teachers annoy me.
I truly realized I am no different from those kids.
-Here.
-What is it? It's an application for a teaching position.
You can be a teacher at a private school even if you fail that exam.
-Ryuji! -Don't thank me.
We are buddies.
I'm gonna be sick.
Hold it! There is a bathroom right there! No! Swallow it.
That's gross! What are you doing? On my clothes! Don't be nervous, Eikichi.
I don't care if they are distinguished.
This is my last chance.
I'll impress them at the interview.
I'm sorry.
Wow, she is hot.
She is about my age.
She is wearing jeans.
Too bad.
But her tight hipline.
What an old pervert! The movement of the bus! It's a misunderstanding! This is bodily injury! I'll sue you.
So sue me! Eurasia University, karate varsity team, Eikichi Onizuka.
I will not run or hide.
I am a man of high social standing.
If you want to press more false charges, let's call the police.
It's absolutely unacceptable! You punk! Thank you very much.
You saved me! No, no.
I did what I should have done.
She is so cute! Could this be destiny? Holy Forest Academy This must be destiny! Really.
Someone at the same interview as me drove that pervert away.
This coincidence makes my heart beat faster.
Does it really? LOVE LOVE FUYUTSUKI ONIZUKA Who did this? Who pulled such a prank? Onizuka-sensei is blushing! Onizuka-sensei.
What is this? I can't believe it! Look, Fuyutsuki-sensei is blushing too.
Okay, let's start class! Yes, sir.
A love affair with a teacher at work may not be too bad.
What a wonderful future! I am so lucky.
If that's the case, I need them to hire me, no matter what! Next, please! Number 23, Eikichi Onizuka coming in.
I am Uchiyamada, the vice principal.
Nice to meet you, Eurasia University, karate varsity team, Onizuka-kun.
-What are you doing? -A banzai cheer.
Interesting.
Well, your self-promoting comments say: "I am very serious.
That's what people say but I am actually very sociable and I have many friends.
That's what people say.
Also, I am very athletic.
I can lift 150 kg.
on the bench press.
I was the captain of the karate varsity team in college.
I would like to take advantage of these skills in my teaching career.
" Onizuka-kun, instead of applying for a teaching position here you should interview at our middle school.
No, maybe elementary school.
It's pathetic.
The chairperson of the school board has a policy of hiring teachers without too much emphasis on their resumes.
But because of that, airheads like him show up at the interviews.
All he has is stamina.
He doesn't even have basic levels of knowledge.
It's a shame that such a bonehead would show up to interview at such a distinguished school.
Thank you for coming.
This place is not for trash like you.
What trash?! What? Didn't you hear me telling you to go? Why are you looking at me like that? That's a very rebellious look.
That's not a look a teacher should have.
It's the look of a murderer.
I wouldn't be surprised.
Have you killed one or two? Shall I call 9-1-1? Don't mock me, you old pervert! Who is trash? I can't stand it when someone calls me trash! You bastard! What are you mumbling about? Well.
Nothing! How was it, Onizuka-kun? Onizuka-kun? Goodbye, thrilling times with female students.
Goodbye, love affair with a female teacher.
STUDENT STORE So much for destiny.
I had no idea that bastard was the vice principal here.
Lady, give me a bottle of milk coffee.
Sure.
What's wrong? Did the interview go wrong? Can't you tell? Maybe trash like me can't become a teacher.
A young person like you shouldn't be calling yourself trash.
But.
Ever since I was a kid, teachers would call me stupid and trash.
It makes you believe that you are.
I wonder why teachers are like that.
I know I am stupid and quick to fight.
I may not be suited to be a teacher.
But if I became a teacher, I'd never do that.
I would never call my students trash.
Was that too corny? Where is the vice principal? Come out here! We're gonna kill him! Uchiyamada! What is it? They used to be in our school.
They were expelled.
-Did they come to get revenge? -Why don't you stop them? If you do a good job, you might be able to become a teacher.
I will never let you off the hook, Uchiyamada! You've made a fool out of me too many times! Bastards! We'll call the police.
-Shut up! -Wait! Who are you? Harming him will not be tolerated by me Eikichi Onizuka, 22 years old, interview number 23.
Weren't you a captain of the karate team? If you get rid of them, I'll give thought to offering you a position.
What are you guys mumbling about? Shut up, you trash! Onizuka-kun, what do you think they did? Blackmail, racketeering.
They dishonored our school name! It's not like we wanted to become rebels.
Every time you saw us, you called us trash and dropouts! What's wrong with calling trash, trash? Or are you saying that it is my fault that you guys went astray? That's a bad joke.
You guys are nothing but rotten, unredeemable trash! Onizuka-kun, do something! You are allowed to beat them up.
Those pieces of trash are not our students anymore.
What are you doing, Onizuka-kun? Act quickly! Hey, why are you holding on to me? Didn't you hear me, Onizuka-kun? Do it quickly! Unbelievable! Vice principal! That's outrageous! Did you say you want to be a teacher? Do you understand what you did? It's violence.
This is a huge problem! Don't you look down on them, bastard! You call people trash like they are things.
Why is such verbal violence allowed? Because of teachers like you, these kids are squeezed out of their safe haven! If you call this education I don't want to be a teacher.
I gladly decline.
Let's go.
You're finished here, right? Hey, wait! You! -Hey, let's go, new guy! -Okay.
-Stay alert and hold on to the wheel.
-Yes, sir! Are you really serious about becoming a truck driver? Didn't you want to be a teacher? Please stop talking about it.
I am totally over it.
When I think about it, the idea was too far-fetched.
Me? A teacher? Now I'm driving routes.
I appreciate your instruction.
Sure.
I will train you to be a professional driver.
Leave it to me.
-Excuse me.
-Yes, may I help you? Excuse me! I am looking for Eikichi Onizuka.
His landlord sent me here.
Eikichi? Hello, this is Eikichi Onizuka long-distance truck driver.
Oh, Ryuji, it's you.
I am sailing through the Akita area on Tohoku Highway.
I'll arrive at Aomori soon.
What are you going to do about college? I'm gonna quit.
-What about teaching? -It's okay.
I'm done.
It's not for me.
I'm not suited for teaching.
I will become GDO.
Great Driver Onizuka.
That's what I'll strive for now.
So you quit, huh? Then there's no use.
If you are in Akita, it's impossible.
What are you talking about? Someone came from the Holy Forest Academy.
If you take the final interview by 6 p.
m.
today they will hire you.
But you can't come back from Akita by 6 p.
m.
Just do your best where you are now.
Be GDO.
Isn't it impossible? Can he come back in three hours? It usually takes 8 hours.
No matter how fast you drive, three hours is.
What's wrong? I can become a teacher if I return in three hours.
Sorry to have interrupted.
He is not the kind of guy who gives up easily.
He makes the impossible possible.
That's the kind of guy he is.
No matter what.
I can.
I can.
I can.
I can.
I can.
I can.
Hey, stupid! What the hell are you doing? I can be a teacher if I can get back in 3 hours.
Move over! Attention, patrol cars.
We are chasing a truck going south on Tohoku Highway.
Get roadblocks ready and send additional police! Here it comes! The truck has run over the barricades at the Inawa Tollbooth! Holy Forest Academy Is anyone here? This is Onizuka! I have come for an interview! No one is here? Rats! Answer me! Anyone! I guess I didn't make it in time.
I was prepared to get arrested for speeding.
Onizuka-kun.
I was waiting for you.
Let's start the interview.
You? The old lady? Where am I? What is this place? What? Why are you? I knew you would come.
I got it! You said it was for a teaching position.
But it's actually for a store clerk position.
This is a practical joke.
CHAIRPERSON'S OFFICE This place is? You mean.
Wait.
Welcome to Holy Forest Academy.
I am Sakurai, principal of the school board.
Principal?! But I saw you at the student store! That's my hobby.
Sometimes I do that to observe people.
Oh, no! No way! That's not fair! You seem to have a lot on your résumé.
You were taken care of by the police too.
Okay.
You are hired! You need to read the school brochure and teacher's manual.
-Ma'am.
-What is it? Are you sure? You didn't take much time to decide.
Is that strange? I've just never passed anything like this on the first try.
Be more confident about yourself, Onizuka-kun.
But you need to be prepared.
Our school is considered prestigious.
But internally many problems are mounting such as delinquency, bullying, problems with the opposite sex violence, even toward teachers.
It is getting worse each year and I can hardly handle it myself.
Onizuka-kun, what I want from you is exactly what you showed us the other day.
The German suplex.
That strength! -German? -That's right! That's it! That bridge reminds me of Karl Gotch.
-May I sit down? -Please.
You are the only one who can resolve our problems in a simple way.
So, as chairperson of the board, I am asking you to become a teacher at our school.
Onizuka-kun? Or Teacher Onizuka! Leave it to me! I will perform the perfect German suplex here.
Me, Eikichi Onizuka.
22 years old.
Why do you look so confident? Teacher Onizuka is born.
Hurray! Ryuji and Fuyutsuki! Congratulations! We'll teach at the same school.
I look forward to it.
You mean, you passed too? Unlike you, she passed on her first try.
You need to thank her.
If she hadn't let you know, you wouldn't have gotten the chance.
Are you serious? Really? Come on.
Are you serious? I can't believe you are bringing him into our school as a teacher.
It will be interesting.
You have an ulterior motive.
That class, you'll let him take that class.
Keep your mouth shut! I can't wait to see what that Eikichi Onizuka will do.
To see how he will change the future of our students.
I can't wait.
I am looking forward to the cherry blossom season.
You and me, let's go away To look for new emotions today Together we can overcome Because I want to enjoy a new tomorrow Open your eyes and open the door The world in front of your eyes I want to go out With my favorite sounds I will taste my childhood emotions I'm here to enjoy the sunlight I'm enjoying myself More than in the past I want to see you, but I can't So I just embrace my love Even walking on a crowded street Your smile makes my head spin PREVIEW Don't come any closer! I can't stand it anymore! I want to die! I will make this school a more interesting place.
