I was just fine where I was.
- But we'll stay friends, right? - Course.
I only have you guys anyway.
It's just, I'm tired of being the youngest.
Imagine being in high school with you.
That would be worse.
Then I would be the youngest of the youngest.
- No one would date me, for sure.
Come on.
- Ah, that's the reason.
- The little blonde in eighth grade? - What little blonde? Clarisse.
The little blonde's name is Clarisse.
Dang, why didn't you tell us that's why you wanted to repeat a year? Would you stop it? And stop saying "dang.
" - Nobody says that.
- Well, my mom does.
I mean, seriously, are you that excited to become adults? Victor, we're not becoming adults.
I mean, it's just high school.
Just high school? Just high school? Really? After high school comes college.
And after college, unemployment.
The world's going to hit us all head-on.
And you're excited for that? Because I'm not.

It'll be great.
Just watch.
- Okay? - Okay.
"Okay, Papa.
" Okay, Papa.
Thanks, sweetie.
High five? Cool.
Hi, Romane.
Hi, Hervé.
People change, you know.
Let's hope.
By the way, tonight, I think that that I might ask Romane to be my girlfriend.
You "think" you might ask her? That confident, huh? She might turn me down? That won't happen.
She likes you.
Everybody likes you.
You're handsome, tall, nice, you smell good.
You're not that dumb.
I'm telling you.
If you don't, then I'll date her as soon as I get a little taller.
Shut up, Victor.
Well, okay.
- If I want to ask her, how should I do it? - You want my advice? I look like an expert? At least you look like you're worried less than I am.
Just ask her, Sam.
- Ask her what? - Well, ask if you can kiss her.
People do that.
So, you're saying, out of the blue, I just ask her, "How are you, Romane? Is it all right if I kiss you?" - Seriously? For real? - Yeah.
Why not? Okay.
Seems risky, but okay.
They're home.
Fasten your seat belts, ladies and gentlemen.
It's about to get rough.
- Repeating the year? - Look, I Let your father finish.
You're not repeating.
We'll hire private teachers.
You're going to work and get better grades.
It won't change things.
I'm not at that level.
That level? You? Honey, I know one thing, and it's that you're very intelligent.
- But you don't make the best of it.
- What's that mean? Will you watch your tone, please? It means every time we get home, you're on your phone or playing games.
