Cory: Somebody has gotta run against him and win! Its gotta be somebody brilliant, charming, and handsome, somebody irresistible. Somebody like me!
Meena: Yes, you could do it! Definitely! You have 3 of those 4 traits!
Cory: Thank you! Which three, Meena?
Cory: Meena, Meena, I'm all signed up! I mean, look at me. I am running for President. Yeah, now I just gotta get people to know me.
Meena: That's right. You're new in school, not that popular. Basically, a nobody. It's almost as if you don't exist.
Cory: Okay, dang!
President (while talking to Sophie's class at school): Now I'm going to tell you what it's like to be...the President of the United States!
(A boy raises his hand)
President: Yes, uh... Rico?
Rico: Mr. President, do you like doughnuts?
President: Uh...yes I do. But as the President, I need to be in tip-top shape
(A girl raises her hand)
President: Yes, Brittany?
Brittany: If you need to stay in tip-top shape, can I have your doughnut?
President: Fine...(gives doughnut to Brittany) Now, does anyone have a question about what I do?
(Another girl raises her hand)
President: Yes, Tanisha?
Tanisha: Mr. President, I have a question about your airplane, Air Force One.
President: Yes, thank you!
Tanisha: What weighs more? Air Force One or a million doughnuts?
